2 weeks are left to propose content for the 2020 LD4 Conference!
The conference will be held May 13-14 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, USA with a focus on learning concrete ways that linked data benefits GLAM institutions and discovering pathways to participation in linked data. By bringing together a broad range of perspectives, and centering diversity, equity, inclusion, and ethics in our discussions, we will create a community of practice for linked data in libraries.
Thanks to the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, a limited number of stipends at three award levels are available to make participation possible for those who would not otherwise be able to attend:
* Registration fee ($100 US) waived
* Up to $500 US of travel expenses covered plus registration fee ($100 US) waived
* Up to $1250 US of travel expenses covered plus registration fee ($100 US) waived
Stipend applications will be reviewed by the Program Committee and recipients selected based on merit and need.
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. Please see the full Call for Proposals<https://sites.google.com/stanford.edu/ld42020/call-for-proposals> for additional details.
The Program Committee will select proposals and contact all applicants by February 21st. For those interested in attending without proposing a session, a separate call for participation will be announced in late February.
