Qurator 2022 – Third Conference on Digital Curation Technologies Scientific
Workshop on September 23rd, 2022, Berlin, Germany (part of the Qurator
Conference 20th-23rd, 2022)
Digital curation is a complex time and knowledge intensive process, in which
knowledge workers across various industries and application domains create
new content artifacts and insights from heterogeneous sources (content,
data, knowledge). The work required for this includes, e.g., selecting,
summarizing, scheduling, translating, localising, structuring, condensing,
enriching, visualizing and explaining the various contents, taking into
account the steadily growing speed, volume and number of sources such as
online newspapers, news portals, social media, linked data, business
information systems, IoT data streams etc. AI methods, in particular from
the field of language and semantic knowledge technologies, are used to
support these tasks and thereby accelerate and qualitatively improve them. 
The Qurator conference provides a forum on the use of digital curation
technologies in application domains for, e.g., media, journalism, logistics,
cultural heritage, health care and life sciences, energy, industry. Of
particular relevance are submissions that demonstrate the applied use of
digital curation technologies and tools in domain-specific use cases and
that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as Artificial
Intelligence and Semantic Web, data analytics and machine learning,
information/content and knowledge management systems, information retrieval,
knowledge discovery, and computational linguistics. 
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to 
Management of Digitally Curated and Semantically Expressive Information and
Knowledge • Knowledge representation and semantic knowledge management •
Semantic content and data modeling and digital knowledge curation • Semantic
integration, including transformation rules, ontology matching, merging,
etc. • Ontology and rule engineering and metadata management •
Ontology-based data management, linked data management, semantic big data
management • Processes, workflows, roles and responsibilities in digital
AI-based / Semantic Large Scale and Complex Information and Content Analysis
• Indexing, search and query answering in large volumes of data • Digital
curation, semantic annotation, extraction, enrichment, summarization, and
integration • Semantic storytelling, identification and generation of story

including text mining • Streaming analytics, and semantic complex event
Applications, Evaluations, and Experiences of applying digital curation
technologies, standards, and tools including but not limited to the
following domains: • AI / Semantic technology standards and tools •
