[ISAE-ENSMA] SW4CH 2018 – Third International Workshop on Semantic Web for Cultural Heritage

Call for papers

Cultural Heritage (CH) is gaining a lot of attention from academic and industry perspectives. Scientific researchers, organisations, associations, and schools are looking for appropriate technologies for annotating, integrating, sharing, accessing, analysing and visualising the mine of cultural collections and, more generally, cultural data, taking also into account the profiles and preferences of end users. Several national and European research and innovation project have been launched to these directions. A fundamental challenge that many of these projects deal with is how to make Cultural Heritage data, which is typically made available in diverse languages and formats, mutually interoperable, so that it can be searched, linked, and presented in a harmonised way across the boundaries of a Cultural Heritage institution. Early solutions were based on the syntactic or structural level of data, without leveraging the rich semantic structures underlying the content. During the last decades, solutions based on the principles and technologies of the Semantic Web have been proposed to explicitly represent the semantics of data sources and make both their content and their semantics machine operable and interoperable. In parallel, resources such as the CIDOC-CRM ecosystem have matured. As institutions bring their data to the Semantic Web level, the tasks of integrating, sharing, analysing and visualising data are now to be conceived in this new and very rich framework.

The aim of the SW4CH workshop is to bring together Computer Scientists, Data Scientists and Digital Humanities researchers and practitioners involved in the development or deployment of Semantic Web solutions for Cultural Heritage. The goal is to provide a forum, where people from these fields will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences, present state of the art of realisations and outcomes of relevant projects, and discuss related challenges and solutions.
