CERN knows KNoWS
On March 13 and 14, 2023, Ruben Dedecker and Patrick Hochstenbach of our team visited CERN to present
two lectures for the "2nd Series on Data Protection" event.
Ruben presented a lecture on Solid and Linked Data.
Patrick presented a lecture on the using Linked Data and Solid for scholarly communication.
CERN has a long tradition of promoting open standards and open source software.
Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web at this institute, the institute hosts for many years
the OAI-PMH conference on Open Access publishing and their own open source repository software product
Invenio is used world wide by many institutes.
The CERN lectures were live broadcast on the Web and followed by many dozens of viewers worldwide.
After the presentation a lively discussion started on Web security, concerns for new forms of centralization
(the World Wide Web also started as an open permissive publishing platform), and new models of peer review.
