The EuropeanaTech conference (www.europeanatech2015.eu) will feature a small number (4-5) of project 'punch' presentations and posters. The goal is to give people in our community the opportunity to report to everyone on the major technical developments of projects directly related to Europeana. We want to showcase infrastructure work that brings clear value to partner institutions and/or end users, even when some may not consider it cutting-edge R&D. We'd like to give the floor to projects where partners agree to follow established best practices and implement technical standards for everyone to work better. Even if the scope seems limited to one project, it may be an inspiration for others, and it will help everyone get an idea of the progress made around us!
Project Punches can be on any of the conference's topic: data modelling, innovative reuse of cultural heritage assets, semantic enrichment and discovery, etc. They need to be focusing on technical aspects: proposal describing projects in general, or from a pure content perspective, are better placed in other conferences!
We request a short description of what you would like to present, to a maximum of one page, before January 21st. You can also send a poster draft directly, if you wish. We will review the submissions and notify of acceptance by January 30.
P.S. We will rely on you to bring your own poster to the conference site.
