     Title: Tutorial & eTraining is hosting a Tutorial on Digital Libraries Foundations and Interoperability, 29 May 2011 during the Extended Semantic Web Conference, 29 May-2 June 2011 in Heraklion, Crete. The tutorial ensures a conceptual framework alongside a hands-on session, building on our training programme, which includes contributions to the Digital Library section on Wikiversity.

Registration for the event is through the ESWC website.
