I like the text very much. I will submit it later, I would propose to do
it earlier than 17:00 in order to leave some time to deal with potential
submission problems.

So @all: Give feedback or raise your concerns until 15:00 CET or we
assume you accept it as is for submission :-)

>> TITLE: Linked Open Data across the Humanities
>> The mission of LODAH is to build a network of projects and researchers
>> working with Linked Open Data (LOD) from across the whole field of the
>> humanities who can engage with LOD-oriented research from a computer
>> science perspective. The specific objectives will be encouraging and
>> facilitating the interconnection and interoperability of open online
>> Humanities resources, both existing and forthcoming, through LOD;
>> raising awareness of new developments (both content and technology);
>> and discussing, developing, and  publishing best practices. The main
>> activities of LODAH will be to survey the use of ontologies adopted
>> across humanities; to consider how they relate to each other; to
>> identify gaps where disciplines are lacking clear exemplars and
>> guidance; to build guidelines designed not only to reduce the
>> fragmentation of approaches and ontologies but also to foster
>> integration of methods and resources; and to find and possibly link
>> other research initiatives in similar fields. This will happen by both
>> testing ontologies and techniques developed for humanities data
>> against the concerns of contemporary information engineering, and by
>> testing the assumptions of modern data networks against the complexity
>> of the humanities. This will make it easier for everyone  -  from
>> citizens to SMEs - to reach and use complex historical, literary or
>> philosophical data sets, and provide a marketplace for European SMEs
>> to develop new tools and services. The initial LODAH membership
>> includes a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, but  is also open
>> to unforeseen domains and will be an environment in which young
>> researchers can develop portable skills.
