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

 > From: 	Elena Spadini 

Dear community,

The deadline for submissions for the Workshop on Scholarly Digital 
Editions, Graph Data-Models and Semantic Web Technologies is now been 
extended until the 16th of December.
There is a lot going on in the DH community this week, including an 
international conference and workshops, and an additional week might be 
useful for those interested.
We take this opportunity to remind that the Workshop is open and free of 
charge. Attendance without a paper is also possible and we are looking 
forward to a fruitful discussion.

Best wishes,
the Organization Committee

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 

    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
    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.
