  International Workshop


  7-9 April 2006, University of Hamburg

In the new area of digitalized information, researchers from the 
humanities face a new problem: semantic data organisation. In contrast 
with the data processed by natural sciences, the material in most 
fields of humanities is mostly unstructured. The structuring of such 
data is a complex problem that can be solved only by formal models and 
languages from computer science. However the application of formal 
models from formal sciences (especially computing) is itself a 
scientific problem as humanists have their own scientific culture not 
only in the argumentation and meta-theories but also in their way of 
communication. With the development of the Semantic Web the 
"ontology"-concept became an important "key" for data-structuring. Some 
ontologies were developed also in the Humanities, but there is still no 
overview of what exists, which standards are used and how well the 
current ontologies meet the users requirements.

The current workshop aims to fill this gap and act also as a discussion 
forum We welcome original papers related (but not limited) to one or 
more of the following topics:
	*  theoretical relevant models for humanities
	*  formal prerequisites
	*  specific ontologies for different fields in Humanities
	*  collaborative tools for ontology manipulation
	*  Semantic Web technologies for preserving cultural heritage
	*  Semi-automatic ontology extraction
	*  Ontology development in multilingual context
	*  Practical use of ontologies in Humanities

	* Walther v. Hahn (University of Hamburg)
	* Cristina Vertan (University of Hamburg)

  Invited Speakers:
	*  Marin Doerr, (FORTH-ICS, Heraklion, Crete)
	*  Nicola Guarino (IST-CNR, Trento, Italy)
