> WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
>
> SKOS-2-HIVE workshops focus on using semantic web technologies for  
> representing and describing collections using multiple controlled  
> vocabularies. The workshop focuses on basic understanding and usage  
> of W3C's Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS), linked data,  
> and the HIVE library of open source applications.
>
> There are two workshop components:
>
> 1. Foundational Concepts and HIVE Basics. This component addresses  
> the conceptual design of structured vocabularies, including a range  
> of semantic relationships; domain representation and issues central  
> to identifying useful vocabularies; the application of basic SKOS  
> tags; and basic techniques underlying the HIVE vocabulary server for  
> enriching digital resource descriptions.
>
> 2. Implementing HIVE. This component covers more technical aspects  
> including steps for implementing a HIVE server.
>
> Workshop outlines and learning outcomes provided further below.
> Workshop rationale: Semantic web technologies provide innovative  
> means for organizing, describing, and managing digital resources in  
> a range of formats. Successful implementation and use of semantic  
> web technologies requires both information professionals and system  
> developers to become knowledgeable about the underlying intellectual  
> construct and roadmap toward forming a semantic web. The IMLS-funded  
> Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering (HIVE) project has  
> been addressing these needs by working with the W3C's Simple  
> Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS) in the linked data  
> environment. HIVE has been implemented using semantic web enabling  
> technologies and machine learning to provide a solution to the  
> traditional controlled vocabulary problems of cost,  
> interoperability, and usability. Current HIVE vocabulary partners  
> include the Library of Congress, the Getty Research Institute, and  
> the U.S. Geological Survey.
>
>
> WORKSHOP OUTLINE AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
>
> Morning Session: Foundational Concepts and HIVE Basics, 8:30  
> AM-12:00 PM
>
> Overview
>
> This session addresses traditional thesaural concepts and the  
> extension of these concepts via SKOS/linked data, HIVE and the  
> semantic web.
>
> Audience
>
> This workshop targets information professionals (librarians,  
> archivists, museum professional, web architects, and others); system  
> developers; and students seeking knowledge about the basic framework  
> and conceptual aspect of vocabulary design.
>
> Prerequisites
>
> Have a basic understanding of subject metadata creation or subject  
> cataloging.
>
> Learning Outcomes
>
> - Evaluate controlled vocabulary, thesauri, and ontologies that  
> would best fit your information environment's needs.
>
> - Identify basic thesaural relationships including: relative,  
> associative and hierarchical.
>
> - Use basic SKOS tags to identify the above thesaural relationships.
>
> - Become familiar with using the HIVE software and the HIVE processes.
>
>
> Lunch on your own 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
>
>
> Afternoon Session: Implementing HIVE 1:00 PM-4:30 PM
>
> Overview
>
> This session provides details on the HIVE system, underlying  
> algorithms, source code, and the library of system features.
>
> Audience
>
> System developers, as well as technologists, librarians, and  
> information scientists who are interested in the technological side  
> of the semantic web, and who may be implementing, experiments with,  
> and/or extending HIVE technologies.
>
> Prerequisites
>
> Java programming, and object oriented design.
>
> Learning Outcomes
>
> - Understand the architecture of the HIVE vocabulary server.
> - Become familiar with information retrieval techniques and how HIVE  
> applies them to vocabulary terms.
> - Gain experience indexing documents with HIVE and KEA (a machine  
> learning application).
> - Learn how to integrate HIVE vocabulary services into other tools.
> - Learn how to use the SPARQL language for querying content in HIVE.
