Alignment of data and software developmen lifecycle - first use cases from Wolters Kluwer

The talk will be based on tasks executed within the ALIGNED Project. In this phase, we collected requirements based on real world use cases like better data curation capabilities. The talk will present the project scope and the objectives of Wolters Kluwer as one of the industry use case partners.

Case study openlaws EU Project

The presentation will focus on the EU Project, co-funded by the European Commission (DG Justice). The aim of the project is to create a vision of what „Big Open Legal Data“ can do in the future and to develop a prototype of a platform that links multiple legal open data sources. 

TailR: A Versioning Platform for the Web of Data

Linked data provides methods for publishing and connecting structured data on the web using standard protocols and formats, namely HTTP, URIs, and RDF. Much like the web of documents, linked data resources continuously evolve over time, but for the most part only their most recent state is accessible. In order to investigate the evolution of linked datasets and how changes propagate through the web of data it is necessary to make prior versions of such resources available. The lack of a common ``self-service'' versioning platform in the linked data community makes it more difficult for dataset maintainers to preserve past states of their data themselves. By implementing such a platform which also provides a consistent interface to historic dataset information, dataset maintainers can more easily start versioning their datasets while application developers and researchers instantly have the possibility of working with the additional temporal data without laboriously collecting it on their own. In this paper, we describe a basic model view for linked datasets and a platform for preserving the history of arbitrary linked datasets over time, providing access to prior states of contained resources via mementoes.
