LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events
People conventionally refer to an action or occurrence taking place at a certain time at a specific location as an event. This notion is potentially useful for connecting individual facts recorded in the rapidly growing collection of linked data sets and for discovering more complex relationships between data. In this paper, we provide an overview and comparison of existing event models, looking at the different choices they make of how to represent events. We describe a model for publishing records of events as Linked Data. We present tools for populating this model and a prototype "event directory" web service, which can be used to locate stable URIs for events that have occurred, provide RDFS+OWL descriptions and link to related resources.
