        Subject: CfP - Workshop on Scholarly Digital Editions, Graph Data-Models and Semantic Web Technologies

 Workshop on Scholarly Digital Editions, Graph Data-Models and Semantic Web Technologies
 Université de Lausanne, 3-4 June 2019

 Call for Papers

 Digital texts processed by machines are linear strings of characters, but in most research activities in the Humanities (philology, linguistics, corpus-based analysis, cultural heritage, etc.) we store them in databases and we add markup to the text, that is a kind of intelligence made computable thanks to the use of widespread data-models, formats and standards.

 In the last decades, the popularity of graph data-models has increased, in accordance with the semantic web proposition and the development of standards such as RDF and OWL. Graph databases, in the form of triple stores (such as Graph-DB) or of labeled-property-graphs (Neo4j), are regarded as powerful and flexible solutions by research and cultural institutions, and private companies alike.

 The workshop is held to explore possible interactions between digital texts, the graph data-model, scholarly editions and the semantic web. The combinations of these objects/concepts, pursued in the last decades, remains experimental to date, and it represents one of the possible development for the field of digital scholarly editing.

 Contributions on one or more of the following topics are particularly welcome:

 the conceptualization of text as graph;
 the use of graph-databases for digital editions;
 the semantic web resources for building digital scholarly editions;
 the interoperability among digital texts through Linked Data Vocabularies;
 the integration of graph flavoured data into xml documents.

 We welcome contributions from those involved in the development of tailor-made solutions for small scale projects as well as of large-scale infrastructure, focused on the theory and/or on the practice of this happy or unhappy combination.

 The workshop includes presentations and a working group session. 

 Please note that the word 'workshop' means here a place for sharing ongoing research and not a hands-on training.
