*What will happen there?*

We'll begin with three twenty minute keynotes that focus on the value of
moving from Open Data to *Linked* Open Data. The objective will be to show
the benefits of producing 5 star model defined by Tim Berners Lee [4] which
provides for linking related data sets. Following Linked Data principals,
organizations can model and publish valuable data without prior agreement on

The keynote talks will emphasis the current state of international best
practices, the work by the international members of the W3C, and highlight
where to find guidance on publishing and consuming Linked Data. Priority
will be given to lightening talk presenters who describe concrete use cases
and deployments of Linked Open Data for government use. A call for "best
practice lightening talks" is announced too by the workshop organisers (see
below). The lightning talk session will bring up to 8 short presentations of
concrete use cases & projects to the workshop audience to learn about best
practises in the area of GLD!

Importantly, the workshop will have an interactive component where all
participants are invited to work together and discuss concrete issues of
Linked Open Government Data. The goal is to document the most pressing
issues on Linked Open Government data including requirements, use cases, new
developments, and deployment experiences.

The workshop closes with a session summarizing the results of the small
working groups.
