The Second International Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives and Museums Summit will be held at the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec in Montreal, 19-20 June, 2013.  This one-of-a-kind Summit brings together an influential group of catalysts that span the humanities and sciences across multiple sectors.

We have several sponsorship opportunities available and are actively seeking international partners to help support the growing international collaboration.  The Summit will again be limited to about 100 participants, and travel grants will not be available this year, with the exception of 5 winning teams selecting during the LODLAM Challenge.  Our sponsors help cover the costs of the Summit including attendee meals etc, and support the LODLAM Challenge awards.

What is LODLAM?
Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives & Museums. A confluence of legal tools and web standards that enables the World Wide Web to grow from a web of documents to a web of data. For libraries, archives, and museums, this offers enormous opportunities in research, publishing, and consumption of currently disparate datasets.

Who attends?
Over 100 people representing 85 institutions from 17 countries attended the inaugural Summit in 2011, and regional meetups. A diverse range of administrators, developers, technologists and practitioners came together to explore a wide variety of issues relevant to Linked Open Data and its growing adoption and opportunities for collaboration.
