The Linked Ancient World Data Institute (LAWDI) is hosting the roundtable, "Linked Open Data for the Ancient World" at the Joint Annual Meeting of the American Philological Association and the Archaeological Institute of America, which is being held from Jan 3 to 6, 2013 in Seattle, WA. “Linked Open Data” (LOD) is a framework for thinking about the publication of digital resources that focusses on the stability and readability of web addresses (URLs) and on the usability, both by people and automatic agents, of the data found at these addresses.
Anyone is welcome to come by and get an introduction to LOD and an overview of the LAWDI program. Or come talk about a project you're working on or thinking about. And in general, any topic related to digitizing the Ancient World is relevant.
If you are going to drop by the LAWDI table, you may want to consider also visiting Donald Mastronarde, who is hosting "Peer-Reviewed Open-Access Publication: A New Venue."
