Many areas of our world are being subject to digitalisation as leaders and policymakers embrace the possibilities that can be harnessed through the capturing and exploiting of data.

Successful data sharing requires that users of your data understand the data format, the data semantics, and the rules that govern your particular use of terms and values. Sharing often means the creation of “cross-walks” that transfer data from one schema to another using some or all of this information. However, cross-walks are time-consuming because the information that is provided is neither standardized nor machine-readable.

Every structured exchange requires consensus about the structure. The Shape Expressions (ShEx) language captures these structures in an intuitive and powerful syntax. From metadata description (e.g. DDI) to data description (e.g. FHIR), ShEx provides a powerful schema language to develop, test and deploy shared models for RDF data. This tutorial will explore the utility and expressivity of ShEx.Presented with side-by-side examples of schema and data, the audience will see how to use ShEx to solve every-day problems. The presentation will use multiple implementations of ShEx in order to leave the participants with enough familiarity to get started using ShEx on their own.

Linked Data is recognized as one of the underpinnings for open data, open science, and data-driven research and learning in the Semantic Web era. Questions still exist, however, about what should be expected as Linked Data related knowledge, skills, and learning outcomes, and where to find relevant learning materials. This webinar will introduce a competency framework that defines the knowledge and skills necessary for professional practice in the area of Linked Data, developed by the Linked Data for Professional Educators (LD4PE) project and funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
DCMI is pleased to announce that the three keynote speakers for this year's conference (colocated with TPDL2018) will be Natalia Manola, Herbert Van de Sompel and Medha Devare. All three are leading figures in their areas, and together will undoubtedly provide a variety of engaging and, in some cases, challenging viewpoints!
