19th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL2015)
September 17, 2015, Poznań, Poland
The goal of the workshop is to present, discuss and take stock of the developments of the CIDOC CRM in a number of domains. The importance of CRM in heritage-related digital libraries and dataset infrastructures is confirmed by the increasing number of cultural heritage institutions and research projects adopting CRM and its extensions to foster datasets interoperability. Recently various extensions have been presented, for example to incorporate geographical concepts, digital provenance, scientific applications, archaeology, built structures and scientific reasoning. On the other hand, CRM has proved to be pivotal to natural language processing of heritage datasets, gazetteers and thesauri, linked open data and other methods for the use and re-use of dataset collections for digital humanities, history and archaeology.
The workshop is organized as a half-day event, from 13.30-18.00.
We invite scholars currently contributing to the development of CRM extensions and applications as well as researchers who are currently using and adapting CRM to specific domain needs or that are developing tools and systems using CRM, to send their contribution and results on the following (and related) topics:
