CALL FOR PAPERS
International Workshop on "Semantic Digital Archives - sustainable long-term
curation perspectives of Cultural Heritage"
to be held as part of the 15th International Conference on Theory and
Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL).
29.09.2011 in Berlin
The Semantic Digital Archives Workshop aims at promoting and discussing
sophisticated knowledge representation and knowledge management solutions
specifically designed for improving Archival Information Systems.
Over the past couple of decades, digitally created content has come to
permeate all aspects of our lives and the life cycle of these objects is
increasingly exclusively digital. Therefore, sustainable long-term curation
perspectives for our digital cultural heritage are essential.
Digital content poses many socio-cultural and technological challenges which
create obstacles to long-term or indefinite preservation.
Changing technologies and shifting user communities as well as the
increasing complexity of digital content being enriched with software and
multimedia attachments are only a few examples. Dealing with these
challenges is the central theme of the workshop.
This full day workshop is an exciting opportunity for collaboration and
cross-fertilization between the Digital Libraries, the Digital Archives and
the Semantic Web community. It specifically encourages closer dialogue
between the technical oriented communities and researchers from the
(digital) humanities and social sciences as well as cultural heritage
TOPICS OF INTEREST:
We intend to have an open discussion on topics related to the general
subject of Semantic Digital Archives. The workshop's focus is broad; we
welcome contributions that focus on such topics as:
* ontologies and linked data for digital archives and digital libraries,
e.g. semantic extensions of common knowledge models of the digital archiving
and digital libraries domain, e.g. METS, EAD, Premis, ...
* ontologies and (semantic) web services implementing the OAIS standard
* theoretical and practical archiving frameworks extending or replacing the
* logical theories for digital archives
* implementations and evaluations of digital archives
* semantic or logical provenance models for digital archives or digital
* information integration/semantic ingest (e.g. from digital libraries)
* trust for ingest and data security/integrity check for long-term storage
of archival records
* semantic search and semantic information retrieval in digital archives and
* visualization and exploration of digital content (stored or to be stored
in a digital archive)
* semantic extensions of emulation/virtualization methodologies tailored for
* semantic long-term storage and hardware organization tailored for AIS
* (empirical) studies evaluating end-user needs and its evolution as well as
information seeking behaviour of end- user needs and its evolution
* knowledge evolution
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers related
to the aforementioned topics. We
* regular papers (10 to 12 pages)
* short papers (4 to 6 pages)
All submissions are required to be in pdf format. All submissions should be
anonymous (i.e., no author names/affiliations and obvious citations). Long
and short paper submissions should be in the Springer's LNCS format.
Submissions are to be made via the submission web site:
Submissions will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee. All
papers accepted at the Semantic Digital Archives Workshop must be presented
during the Workshop by a TPDL 2011 registered participant. Papers will be
published in workshop proceedings, which will be available as a separate
publication after the Workshop.
* Deadline for Submissions: 30 June 2011
* Acceptance Notification: 30. July 2011
* Camera-ready Papers: 20. August 2011

Subject: ASIST SIG/CR Call for Panel Proposals for ASIS&T Annual Meeting 2011
The Classification Research Special Interest Group (SIG/CR) focuses on
theoretical and practical issues surround the classification and
representation of information for the purposes of organization,
collection building, access, and preservation.
We are inviting proposals for panels and contributions to panels for
submission to the 74th Annual Meeting of the American Society for
Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T). The theme of this year's
conference is "Bridgng the Gulf: Communication and Information in
Society, Technology and Work," and will be held October 9-13, 2011 in
New Orleans. We are interested in panels that address representation
and classification issues related to any kind of material: text or non-
text, multimedia, games, scientific information, data, metadata,
specific implementations of metadata schemas, visualizations,
authority, trust, collection building...we also welcome
philosophically inclined panels as well as those that are more
practical in nature.
Proposals should be formatted in accordance with the call for papers
(which can be found at: http://www.asis.org/asist2011/am11cfp.html )
but sent to me (Megan Winget - megan at ischool.utexas.edu) as attachments.
The deadline for panels to ASIST is May 31.
1) If you send me a fully formed panel proposal, I will submit to
ASIST with support by SIG/CR. Please have these proposals to me by May
2) If you send me a proposal for an individual panel contribution (but
don't actually have a panel formed), I will attempt to facilitate
collaboration between people with similar ideas to generate panel
proposals. In order to do this and have enough time to then generate
fully formed panel proposals, please have these individual paper
proposals to me by May 16.
To reiterate the deadlines:
-If you have a panel idea, you've gotten your speakers lined up, and
it's a done deal: May 27
-If you have an idea for a paper, but you don't have any other
speakers in mind: May 16.
We must have all panel proposals to ASIS&T by May 31.
The ASIS&T call for panel proposals reads:
Proposals for panels are invited on topics that include emerging
cutting-edge research and design, analyses of hot or emerging trends,
opinions on controversial issues, analyses of tools and techniques,
and contrasting viewpoints from experts in complementary professional
areas. Panels are not a substitute for a set of contributed papers,
but must have a cohesive theme and promote lively interaction between
panellists and audience members. Submit two to four pages that provide
an overview of the issues to be discussed by the panel. Proposals
should also list panellists who have agreed to participate and
indicate the qualifications and contribution that each panellist will
offer. Proposals for Pecha Kucha style presentations, are encouraged.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to
contact me (megan at ischool.utexas.edu) or Joe Tennis (jtennis at uw.edu)
and we will be happy to help.
I'm looking forward to reading some interesting proposals!
