Lynx presented at LVI Conference in Florence

 

Last week (11th-12th October), Law via the Internet Conference took place at the University of Florence, where Lynx was presented by Víctor Rodríguez and Patricia Martín, representing UPM as part of Lynx Consortium.

The conference turned out to be a perfect symbiosis between Lynx and the rest of the attendees: many organisms of the European Union, governments of different countries and private enterprises are also working on the publication of Legal Linked Data.

Thus, Lynx members had the chance to interchange ideas and suggestions with many experts in the domain, and to let them know about Lynx project and the advantages of having a Legal Knowledge Graph to support the open access to law.
