OBJECTIVES:

The Semantic Digital Archives (SDA) workshop series fosters innovative 
discussion of knowledge representation and knowledge management 
solutions specifically designed for improving Archival Information 
Systems (AIS) and Archival Information Infrastructures (AII). Novel 
applications of semantic Web technologies and Linked Data offer 
possibilities to advance approaches to digital curation and preservation.

During the last quarter of a century the explosion in digital content 
creation and use has transformed the relationship individuals and 
society have with information. Therefore, sustainable long-term curation 
approaches to our digital cultural heritage are essential. Handling 
digital content in secure ways poses many socio-cultural and 
technological challenges. Changing technologies and shifting user 
communities as well as the increasing complexity of digital content 
being enriched with software and multimedia attachments are a couple of 
examples. Addressing the obstacles to curation and preservation is the 
central theme of the workshop. This full day workshop is an exciting 
opportunity for collaboration and cross-fertilization between the 
Digital Libraries, the Digital Preservation and the Semantic Web 
community. A closer dialogue between the technical oriented communities 
and researchers from the (digital) humanities and social sciences as 
well as cultural heritage institu!
  tions is encouraged.


TOPICS OF INTEREST:

We intend to have an open discussion on topics related to the general 
subject of Semantic Digital Archives. Hence, we welcome contributions 
that focus on, but are not limited to:

* Architectures and Frameworks for semantic Archival Information Systems 
(AIS) and Archival Information Infrastructures (AII)
* Semantic (Web) services implementing AIS & AII
* Contextualization of digital archives, museums and digital libraries
* Linked data for AIS, AII, museums and digital libraries
* Ontologies for AIS, AII, museums and digital libraries
* Semantics of complex content (e.g. Social Media, Multimedia)
* Information integration/semantic ingest (e.g. from digital libraries)
* Semantic search & information retrieval in digital archives, digital 
museums and digital libraries
* User interfaces for (semantic) AIS, AII, digital museums & semantic 
digital libraries
* Semantics for Preservation Processes and Protocols
* Preservation of work flow processes
* Data & Workflow Provenance for AIS & AII
* Semantics for the appraisal and selection of content
* Evolving semantics in long-term archives
* Trust for ingest & data security/integrity check for long-term storage 
of archival records
* User studies focusing on end-user needs and information seeking 
behavior of end-users
* Implementations & evaluations of (semantic) AIS, AII, semantic digital 
museums & semantic digital libraries
* Semantic long-term storage & hardware organization for AIS & AII & 
digital libraries


SUBMISSION DETAILS:

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers 
related to the aforementioned topics. We invite:
* regular papers (8 to 12 pages)
* short papers (2 to 6 pages)

All submissions are required to be in PDF format. Long and short paper 
submissions must be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS format 
(www.springer.com/computer/lncs).

Please submit your manuscript using the EasyChair online submission 
system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sda2015

All submissions will be reviewed by three members of the Program 
Committee. All papers accepted at the Semantic Digital Archives Workshop 
must be presented during the Workshop by a SDA Workshop registered 
participant. Papers presented at the Workshop will be published in the 
Workshop proceedings, which will be available as a separate publication 
after the Workshop.


IMPORTANT DATES:

* Deadline for submissions: July 8, 2015 (New!!)
* Acceptance Notification: July 27, 2015
