In mid September 2012, the special interest group “Database and Information Systems” of the German Informatics Society officially launched a working group with the aim to foster data management in the cloud, such as Linked Open Data. Here, a community will be established on the one hand through periodic workshops and on the other hand by the collection of associated projects with a special focus on cloud topics. We are proud that CODE has become its first official associated project.
You can find more details at the website of the working group (in German).
German local news station TRP1 has produced a short news segment about the CODE project. You can watch the video below or on the TRP1 website.
The European Data Forum (EDF) took place on June 6-7, 2012 in Copenhagen (Denmark) at the Copenhagen Business School (CBS). Prof. Dr. Stefanie Lindstaedt held a talk about “Commercially Empowered Linked Open Data Ecosystems in Research – The CODE Approach” where she explained CODE’s vision is to establish the foundation for a web-based, commercially oriented ecosystem for Linked Open Data.
The CODE Kick-Off was held from 15–16 May 2012 in Graz at the Know-Center. Work packages and use cases were discussed. It was a productive time with interesting issues and we look forward to working on amazing tasks that lay ahead.
