“Linked Open Data” is an approach to the creation of digital resources that emphasizes connections between diverse information on the basis of published and stable web addresses (URIs) that identify common concepts and individual items. LAWDI, funded by the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment for Humanities, brings together an international faculty of practitioners working in the field of Linked Data with twenty attendees who are implementing or planning the creation of digital resources. Travel costs will be covered for students from the United States. Partial travel stipends are likely to be available to overseas participants. Accommodation on the Drew University campus will be provided to all participants.
