===============================================================

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

Open data is a crucial prerequisite for inventing and disseminating the
innovative practices needed for agricultural development. To be usable,
data must not just be open in principle -- i.e., covered by licenses that
allow re-use. Data must also be published in a technical form that allows
it to be integrated into a wide range of applications.

This webinar describes the technical solutions adopted by a widely diverse
global network of agricultural research institutes for publishing research
results. The talk focuses on AGRIS, a central and widely-used resource
linking agricultural datasets for easy consumption, and AgriDrupal, an
adaptation of the popular, open-source content management system Drupal
optimized for producing and consuming linked datasets.

Agricultural research institutes in developing countries share many of the
constraints faced by libraries and other documentation centers, and not
just in developing countries: institutions are expected to expose their
information on the Web in a re-usable form with shoestring budgets and with
technical staff working in local languages and continually lured by
higher-paying work in the private sector. Technical solutions must be easy
to adopt and freely available. The webinar will be of interest to any
institution seeking ways to publish and curate data in the Linked Data
cloud.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

Johannes Keizer has worked for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the
United Nations (FAO) since 1998, primarily as head of the FAO documentation
group. The bibliographic database AGRIS and the multilingual concept scheme
AGROVOC were completely remodeled under his leadership. In the Office of
Knowledge Exchange, Research and Extensions, he heads a staff of 20 -- the
AIMS (Agricultural Information Management Standards and Services) team --
which provides standards, tools, and advice for FAO stakeholders. The AIMS
Team provides the technical backbone for the global Coherence in
Information forAgricultural Research for Development (CIARD) Initiative.
Through EC framework projects such as NeON, D2Science, and agINFRA, the
AIMS Team has channeled the results of innovative European research into
the international work of FAO to combat hunger and poverty in the world.

Caterina Caracciolo is senior information specialist at the FAO. After
working at the National Council of Research (CNR) in Pisa, she joined FAO
in 2006. Since then, she has worked on various aspects related to
information management and sharing, with special focus on metadata. She is
currently involved in the SemaGrow project and part of the AGROVOC
management team at FAO. She holds a PhD in Computer Science from the
University of Amsterdam.

REGISTRATION:

Registration is per site (access for one computer) and closes at 12:00 pm
Eastern (16:00 UTC) on September 25, 2013. Discounts are available for NISO
