International Workshop
7-9 April 2006, University of Hamburg

**** REGISTRATION POSSIBLE UNTIL 30.03.2005 ******

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.
