Call for Participation:

SDA 2011 - International Workshop on Semantic Digital Archives
29th September 2011
Berlin, Germany

The international Semantic Digital Archives Workshop is co-located
with the International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital
Libraries (TPDL)

Online registration ends today:

Afterwards, you can still register on-site.

The SDA 2011 offers an exciting research program which includes:

A keynote presentation which will be given by Winfried Bergmeyer. He
will present the emulation framework developed
within the pan-european project KEEP.

Aims & Topics of Interest:
The Semantic Digital Archives Workshop aims at promoting and
discussing sophisticated knowledge representation and knowledge
management solutions specifically designed for improving Archival
Information Systems.

This full day workshop is an exciting opportunity for collaboration
and cross-fertilization between the Digital Libraries, the Digital
Archives and the Semantic Web community. It specifically encourages
closer dialogue between the technical oriented communities and
researchers from the (digital) humanities and social sciences as well
as cultural heritage institutions.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- ontologies and linked data for digital archives and digital
libraries, e.g. semantic extensions of common knowledge models of the
digital archiving and digital libraries domain, e.g. METS, EAD,
- ontologies and (semantic) web services implementing the OAIS standard
- theoretical and practical archiving frameworks extending or
replacing the OAIS standard
- logical theories for digital archives
- implementations and evaluations of digital archives
- semantic or logical provenance models for digital archives or
digital libraries
- semantic or logical provenance models for specific archiving domains
like e.g. web archiving or software archiving
- information integration/semantic ingest (e.g. from digital libraries
into digital archives)
- trust for ingest and data security/integrity check for long-term
storage of archival records
- semantic search and semantic information retrieval in digital
archives and digital libraries
- visualization and exploration of digital content (stored or to be
stored in a digital archive)
- emulation/virtualization methodologies tailored for digital archives
and semantic extensions
- migration strategies based on semantic (web) technologies
- semantic long-term storage and hardware organization tailored for
Archival Information Systems
- (empirical) studies evaluating end-user needs and its evolution as
well as information seeking behaviour of end-user needs and its
- knowledge evolution
- web archiving
