Workshop on Finding and Re-using Public Information
"The UK Government produces and distributes a vast amount of documents and datasets - from national statistics to environmental information, from socio-economic data to legal material. Recent technologies allow this information to be explored, built upon and made accessible in new ways - whether through visual representation, semantic interlinking, or through social media applications.
This informal, hands-on workshop will bring government information experts together with those who are interested in finding and re-using government information. In addition to focused discussions about legal and technological aspects of re-use, government information assets will be documented and tagged on CKAN, a registry of knowledge resources."
