Share-PSI 2.0 Berlin Workshop - Maximising interoperability — core vocabularies, location-aware data and more


Share-PSI 2.0 network organizes a workshop that address the topic of interoperability, vocabularies and location-aware data. This is last of the Share-PSI 2.0 workshops and it takes place on 25th and 26st November 2015. It is hosted by Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (Fraunhofer FOKUS).

Topics discussed during the workshop should include but are not limited to:

  • How can existing vocabularies be used to provide semantic interoperability?
  • How can data publishers be supported in maximising the interoperability of their data sets within and across domains?
  • As location is often the common point between different datasets, how should location be represented?
  • How can public authorities support multilingualism?
  • How can the technical interoperability of datasets be maximised?
  • How can public authorities publish data that will be persistent, i.e. still be available after the particular project or department that created it has ceased to exist?

Participation in the workshop is free. If you would like to lead a session, please submit your session proposal by 25th October 2015. If you would like to submit a paper for a plenary, please do so by 17th October 2015. Please see the Berlin Workshop website for details.

Sessions will be presented as workshop tracks so that those sessions won't overlap. The specific tracks for the Berlin event are:

  • interoperability between Smart Cities
  • working with location data
  • aspects of the European Data Portal

Share-PSI 2.0 is the European network for the exchange of experience and ideas around implementing open data policies in the public sector. It brings together government departments, standards bodies, academic institutions, commercial organisations, trade associations and interest groups to identify what does and doesn't work, what is and isn't practical, what can and can't be expected of different stakeholders. The impetus for the Share PSI 2.0 Thematic Network is the revised European Directive on the Public Sector Information. The main activity of the network is to organise a series of workshops examining different aspects of PSI. In each workshop, the network partners with direct experience will present their case studies. The output of the workshops will be offered as input to the W3C Data on the Web Best Practices Working Group.

Share-PSI 2.0 is co-funded by the European Commission under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme; Agreement no. 621012.
