The final event of CEDAR will take place in the International Institute of Social History (IISH, Cruquiusweg 31, 1019AT Amsterdam) on June 8, 2016.
The project members will present the project results and will reflect on four years of research in census data harmonization and Semantic Web technology. The day will focus on the database the project delivers, the curation process behind it, the interfaces to access its contents, and the methods to maintain and extend its quality further. We will present the research developed within CEDAR in two PhD theses, analyse the fulfillment of the original goals, and propose lines for future work.
We would like to invite you to attend the Final CEDAR minisymposium.
The event takes place on Wednesday June 8, 2016 from 9.30 to about 18.00 at the International Institute of Social History, Cruquiusweg 31, Amsterdam.

Final CEDAR mini-symposium:
The Use of Linked Data in Research Practices in the Humanities
CEDAR is a project of the Computational Humanities Programme of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. Hosted at the eHumanities group, this project looked into 200 years of the Dutch Historic Census. Very early on, CEDAR held once a year a mini-symposium with international experts. At this final event, we welcome national and international speakers to discuss the use of Linked Data approaches in humanities research practices.
In the afternoon, former project members will reflect on four years of research in census data harmonization and Semantic Web technology. But they will also lookout to the incorporation of data and tools in the Datalegend, Clariah’s Structured Data Hub. The day closes with a roundtable looking into future challenges for Linked Data for Humanities.
