let's be sure, that the abstract is representing something, that we
really want to do in the next 4 years. From my point of view, it does.
I added two small comments. nothing serious.



PS: @Sebastian, in your email yesterday you wrote, that Kai is uploading
the proposal. Am I right, that you didn't mean me but Kai Eckert?

> 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.
