Linked Pasts Symposium

The 2021 Linked Pasts Symposium, hosted by Ghent University, Belgium, will be held as a remote event the week of December 13–17, and as a mix of remote and in-person activities on December 20–21.

The annual Linked Pasts symposium, which has previously been held at KCL, Madrid, Stanford, Mainz, Bordeaux, University of London and British Library, and Ghent University, brings together scholars, heritage professionals and other practitioners with an interest in Linked Open Data as applied to the study of the ancient and historical worlds. Panels and working groups at Linked Pasts are more goal-oriented than a conventional academic conference, and activities and agendas are often proposed, developed and revised by all participants at the event itself.
