Linked Music Hackathon: October 9th 2015

The SLICKMEM and SLoBR Semantic Media projects present:

Linked Music Hackathon @
Goldsmiths, University of London
Friday October 9th 2015

Programming with Purcell, Hacking with Handel, Linking with Liszt

The Linked Music Hackathon brings together those with a shared passion for music and the data that describes it: students, coders, researchers from all disciplines, and members of the public; all with an interest in exploring, combining, playing, hacking, and creating with the vast wealth of musical information now available in digital form.

We will provide access to a number of linked (and potentially linkable!) musical datasets drawn from sources including the British Library and the BBC, with a particular focus on historical music data including early European music of the 16th and 17th centuries; as well as a collection of tools and expertise to aid in the interlinking, analysis, creative use, and (re-)publication of this data.

Call for Projects April 2014

The Semantic Media Network project is happy to announce the third call for projects. After the first two calls, we were able to fund 40% of all applications, see also here: http://semanticmedia.org.uk/?q=funded_projects . We hope that this next call will be equally successful.

First Call-For-Projects: Four Projects being funded

A few weeks ago the deadline for the first call-for-projects passed. After that all applications were reviewed by the Semantic Media advisory board. This process has ended and we are very happy to announce that four mini-projects will be funded in this round (in total, the awards amount to more than £90k). The four successful applications are listed below.

Report from the Semantic Media @ BBC event

With 50 participants the Semantic Media @ BBC was fully booked and the participants and speaker made it a great success. Many thanks for that. We are truly sorry that it was not possible to organize a bigger conference space as interest exceeded the capacity provided by the meeting room.

First Call-For-Projects Finished

The first call for projects finished last night at 23:59. Thanks to all for submitting so many applications. We will inform you about the notification date as soon as the advisory board has made a decision.

This call was the first in a series. The next one will be in about six months.
