   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

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)
