[InetBib] [CFP] First International Workshop on Digital Humanities and Digital Curation (DHC) - November 22nd 2016, Göttingen, Germany


Call for Papers:

First International Workshop on Digital Humanities and Digital Curation (DHC) –
November 22nd 2016, Göttingen, Germany

In conjunction with the 10th Metadata and Semantics Research Conference (MTSR


“Ontologies are the central components of semantic tools and have been present
in the art and cultural area for some time. For instance, the CIDOC Conceptual
Reference Model (CRM) supports the integration, communication and the exchange
of differently structured information from the cultural heritage field.
Meanwhile, there are some projects that already use these semantic technologies.
For instance, a project of the British Museum
(http://collection.britishmuseum.org), allows the collection of all available
data as Linked Open Data (LOD). Also, the implemented EU project  Europeana
(http://www.europeana.eu/portal/) focuses on the global accessibility of
cultural information as LOD. According to the EU Commission, a prominent role
for the future of the European knowledge and information society is played by
sharing the electronic content. In 2009, the German Federal Government had
decided to create a German Digital Library (Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek,
www.deutsche-digitale-bibliothek.de), which should link numerous German cultural
and scientific facilities and integrate them at European level in the Europeana.
In the 1st edition of the workshop we want to focus on the integration notions
of metadata and semantic research into digital humanities and digital curation.
By allocating the workshop to the 10th conference on Metadata and Semantics
Research (MTSR 2016), we believe that the workshop would gain a new audience and
insight to how semantic technologies are used.
In the scope of the DHC workshop, we see the need of discussing the role of
semantics and metadata in combination with the personalization and adaptation of
information and knowledge. The aim of the DHC Workshop is to invite the
community to a discussion in which we will try to find new creative ways to
handle semantic technologies in cultural heritage, especially in digital
humanities and digital curation. Furthermore, DHC aims at improving the exchange
of ideas between different communities involved in research concerning, among
other history, educational science, digital humantities, visualization, machine
learning, information retrieval, data mining, hci, etc. The workshop is
especially intended for researchers working on multidisciplinary tasks who want
to discuss problems and synergies. 
The topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following aspects:

• Humanities and Digital Curation
• Semantic-based data mining and information retrieval
• Semantic-based profiling, clustering and collaborative filtering
• Use of Semantic-based technologies in cultural heritage
• Information Discovery Systems and Recommendations
• Using Text Corpora for Digital Humanities
• Classification Schemes, Taxonomies, and Categorization Schemes
• Thesauri, Semantic Networks and Ontologies
• Knowledge Modeling and Engineering
• Automatic Categorization and Indexing
• Big Data and Digital Humanities
• Visualization, Digital Curation and Digital Humanities
