        Subject: TEI Ontologies SIG workshop

Dear all,

There will be a workshop organised by the TEI Ontologies SIG on
November 9-11 in connection with the TEI annual meeting. The aim of
the workshop is to develop guidelines for how to create TEI documents
that easily may be mapped to ontologies.

More information can be found on the webpage:


The workshop is supported by the TEI Consortium through the SIG Grant  
Fund, so we have some funding specific for this workshop. Please see  
the webpage for details.

There is also a possibility for funding available for young European  
researchers. See http://www.lib.umich.edu/spo/teimeeting09/bursaries.html 
  for details.

Please send an email to oyvind.eide at iln.uio.no by August 1 if you are
interested in participating in this workshop.

Kind regards,

Øyvind Eide and Christian-Emil Ore
Workshop organisers

               5th Australasian Ontology Workshop (AOW 2009)
                                1 December 2009
                         Held in Conjunction with the
 22nd Australian Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI'09)
            University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia

AOW 2009 is the fifth in a series of workshops on ontologies held
in the Australasian region.

The primary aim of the workshop is to bring together active researchers in
the broad area of ontologies. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Ontology models and theories
- Ontologies and the Semantic Web
- Interoperability in ontologies
- Ontologies and Multi-agent systems
- Description logics for ontologies
- Reasoning with ontologies
- Ontology harvesting on the web
- Ontology of agents and actions
- Ontology visualisation
- Ontology engineering and management
- Ontology-based information extraction  and retrieval
- Ontology merging, alignment and integration
- Web ontology languages
- Formal concept analysis and ontologies
- Ontologies for e-research
- Linking open data
- Significant ontology applications

The proceedings of the four previous workshops were published as
volumes in the Conferences in Research and Practice in
Information Technology (CRPIT) series (http://crpit.com/), and this
will again be the case for AOW 2009. As with the previous
workshops, we are investigating the possibility of extended versions
of  selected papers appearing in a special issue of a suitable journal.

Submission information such as format etc. can be found on the
CRPIT website: http://crpit.com/AuthorsSubmitting.html. The page
limit is 10 pages.

Important Dates:
Paper submission deadline: 25 September 2009
Notification of acceptance/rejection: 23 October 2009
Camera-ready copies due: 13 November 2009
AOW 2009: 1 December 2009

        Subject: Herodotos Encoded Space-Text-Imaging Archive (seminar)

Digital Classicist/Institute of Classical Studies

Friday July 31st at 16:30
STB3/6 (Stewart House), Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU

*Elton Barker (Oxford) & Leif Isaksen (Southampton)*
*Herodotos Encoded Space-Text-Imaging Archive*


HESTIA (the Herodotus Encoded Space-Text-Imaging Archive) is an
interdisciplinary project that investigates the ways in which space is
represented in Herodotus’ History, and that aims to capture the ‘deep’
topological structures of the text beyond the usual two-dimensional
Cartesian maps of antiquity.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

        Subject: September workshops in: XML publishing, metadata, collaborativeediting

The Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editions, Birmingham, is hosting three workshops from September 22 to September 25 this year.  Two are these are one day workshops:

1.  Tuesday 22 September: ‘SDPublisher: a new and different XML publishing system’ This workshop will present a hands-on introduction to SDPublisher, the new XML publishing system developed by people associated with ITSEE and Scholarly Digital Editions: see www.sd-editions.com/SDPublisher<http://www.sd-editions.com/SDPublisher>.
2. Wednesday 23 September: ‘The Virtual Manuscript Room: linking resources and scholarship on the web’.  This workshop will introduce the concepts behind the Virtual Manuscript Room project, and their implementation in the project, with particular emphasis on the use of metadata in the project to link together manuscript images, transcripts and resources related to them.
More details of both workshops can be found at http://itsee.bham.ac.uk/vmr/ITSEEworkshops.htm.

The third is a two day workshop, on the subject of "Tools for Collaborative Scholarly Editing over the Web", on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 September.  The first day, "Actions: the State of the Art" on Thursday 24 September, will be open to all: in this,  representatives of projects around the world will give presentations on what they have done, are doing, or plan to do, to develop tools for collaborative scholarly editing over the Web.  The second day, 'Problems and Futures' on Friday 25 September, will be a series of discussions on, firstly, three key emerging problem areas (intellectual property/scholarly authority; sustainability and interoperability), and, secondly, on the possible shapes of scholarly editing in the world to come.  Attendance at this second day will be by invitation only, with numbers restricted. More details of this workshop can be found at http://itsee.bham.ac.uk/vmr/toolscfp.htm.

Attendance at all workshops is open to all (with the restriction to invitees for the Friday 25 September).  We have funding from the JISC (the Virtual Manuscript Room) and from the European Science Foundation (through the InterEdition project) and so are able to offer the workshops without charge.  We are interested in hearing from anyone who would like to present work they are doing in relation to collaborative editing tools on Thursday 24th, and from anyone who believes that they have something to contribute to the discussions on Friday 25th.

Limited cheap accommodation is available close to the workshop venues (in the Orchard Learning Resource Centre, Selly Oak) for those who act quickly.  We may be able to offer assistance with travel and accommodation, particularly to people giving presentations on Thursday 24th and taking part in the discussions on Friday 25th.
