Call for Participation

2nd International Alexandria Workshop (ALEXANDRIA 2015)
Foundations for Temporal Retrieval, Exploration and Analytics in Web 

2./3. November 2015
L3S Research Center, Hannover, Germany


Significant parts of our cultural heritage are produced on the Web, yet 
only insufficient opportunities exist for accessing and exploring the 
past of the Web. While the easy accessibility to the current Web is a 
good baseline, optimal access to Web archives requires new models and 
algorithms for retrieval, exploration, and analytics which go far beyond 
what is needed to access the current state of the Web. This includes 
taking into account the unique temporal dimension of Web archives, 
structured semantic information already available on the Web, as well as 
social media and network information.

The workshop aims at bringing together communities involved in Web 
Archiving, Digital Preservation, Digital Humanities and Information 
Retrieval to encourage a closer dialogue between researchers from 
computer science, digital humanities and cultural heritage institutions.
