Title: Linked Data Data Modeling: Converting VRA Core 4 into Linked Data
Short Description: This project attempted to bridge the gap between the founding principles of Linked Data and published RDF datasets. In doing so, it is hoped that Linked data can be more effectively used and implemented by Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. The focus of this study was developing a Linked Data data model that incorporates popular domain specific vocabularies (primarily Schema.org and FOAF). The VRA 4 restricted XML schema was converted into a new Linked Data data model using Protégé, then an XSLT stylesheet was used to convert an existing VRA 4 dataset into RDF. The detailed description of the study as well as the tools developed (including the Ontology and the XSLT stylesheet) can be downloaded from http://purl.org/jmixter/thesis

Title: LODLAM Patterns
Team: LODLAM Patterns
The LODLAM Patterns website will provide a venue for identifying, publishing, and refining what I call “representation patterns” for cultural heritage resources. Initial patterns will emerge from an analysis of contemporary cultural heritage metadata standards, but these will only serve to prime the pump. At the LODLAM Summit I will invite interested members of the community to join me in identifying useful patterns and improving published patterns through comments and discussion.

Title: Linked Open Bibliographies
Our team is looking into developing an approach for building and publishing linked open bibliographies, including tools for storing bibliographic data and annotations, and markup approaches for publishing these citations as linked open data.
Team Leader: Ricardo Alonso Maturana
Team members: María Elena Alvarado, María Ortega, Susana López-Sola, Rubén Vinagre, María José Ibáñez, Lorena Ruiz Elósegui, Javier Altuzarra, Juan Valer, Kamal Majaiti.
The team brings together expertise in the development of semantic web, data structuring, exploitation of linked data, faceted search engines and algorithms based on semantic technologies.
The team is formed by people from GNOSS company, a small Spanish company which has developed the first social and semantic platform of linked social networks that runs on semantic standards (Linked Data Web). The platform enables automatic data connection, the development of faceted searches based on reasoning and the generation of contexts and advanced recommendation systems (http://www.gnoss.com). GNOSS is the first Spanish company that published its datasets in the Linked Open Data Cloud and CKAN and appears in the LOD cloud since September 2011. GNOSS provides vertical solutions in Culture and Education through cultural and educational graphs of linked communities for connecting content as well as interests.
MAIN GOAL AND DATASETS OF MISMUSEOS.NET
The main goal of Mismuseos.net is to present a case of exploitation of Linked Data for the G.L.A.M. community through innovative end-user applications built on GNOSS. Mismuseos.net is a free access semantic online solution for end-users that allows them to find and discover museums-related content, and also reach some related external information thanks to the correlation with other datasets.
Mismuseos.net uses several datasets: Europeana, Dbpedia, Geonames and Didactalia
