Call for Proposals: 2021 LD4 Conference on Linked Data, “Building
Connections Together”

Submission deadline: Monday, April 12, 2021

Website: http://bit.ly/ld42021

The deadline to propose content for the 2021 LD4 Conference is fast
approaching!  All proposals are due Monday, April 12, by 11:59 pm PST.

The 2021 LD4 Conference <http://bit.ly/ld42021> will be held online from
July 12-23. We are accepting proposals for content in a variety of formats
and we invite you to submit your proposal
<https://forms.gle/h8BVmSHrre8h4Xsy7> to be part of creating this
conference! By bringing together a broad range of perspectives, the
conference seeks to foster a community of practice for linked data in
cultural heritage institutions.

The conference will include activities tailored to all levels of experience
with linked data, with a focus on themes of:


   Linked data education

   Inclusion of diverse voices

   Practical steps toward linked data adoption

   Reliability and availability of linked data

   Incorporating linked data into day-to-day library operations

   Linked data advocacy

We are accepting proposals for content in a variety of formats and
especially encourage proposals (conference or pre-conference) from
participants from groups and regions that are traditionally
underrepresented in conferences related to linked data in libraries and
other cultural heritage organizations, as well as proposals from early
career professionals. Successful proposals will focus on concrete ways that
linked data impacts GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums)
institutions, and will share pathways that allow others to participate in
linked data.  Please see the full Call for Proposals
additional details.
