Special Session Semantic Web Vocabularies and Drupal

A number of the organizations represented at Knowledge Technology Week 2012 and DC-2012 use a Drupal platform (e.g., FAO and VIVO) or are planning such a migration (ZBW Labs and DCMI). This special session will explore the relationship between Drupal and Linked Open Data (LOD) vocabularies - specifically, how Drupal systems can ingest and use LOD vocabularies and publish data using LOD vocabularies. How does, or how might, Drupal interact with the Agrovoc Vocbench, AgInfra tools, metadata registries, or Schema.org? The session will begin with lightning talks about projects that use or are implementing any of the approaches above. These presentations will lead into "unconference"-style brainstorming to identify opportunities for sharing expertise, pooling efforts, or defining joint goals. «…more information »
