The 19th European Networked Knowledge Organisation Systems (NKOS) Workshop

  • Douglas Tudhope (University of South Wales)
  • Joseph A Busch (Taxonomy Strategies)
  • Koraljka Golub (Linnaeus University)
  • Marjorie Hlava (Access Innovations)
  • Philipp Mayr (GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences)
  • Marcia L. Zeng (Kent State University)

NKOS workshop at TPDL 2019 will explore the potential of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS), such as classification systems, taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies, and lexical databases, in the context of current developments and possibilities. These tools help to model the underlying semantic structure of a domain for purposes of information retrieval, knowledge discovery, language engineering, and the Semantic Web. The workshop provides an opportunity to discuss projects, research and development activities, evaluation approaches, lessons learned, and research findings. A further objective is to systematically engage in discussions in common areas of interest with selected related communities and to investigate potential cooperation. The workshop will also allow major projects to report results, newcomers to interact with established people in the field, while facilitating the discussions of topical issues which require consensus or coordination, including standards efforts. Thus, for example, previous workshops have seen focused discussion on early drafts of BSI and ISO KOS standards, the W3C SKOS standard, the interface between traditional library and information science vocabularies and Semantic Web efforts, KOS linked data, social tagging and its relation to established vocabularies, KOS metadata and the different types of KOS.

Paper submission deadline is on **June 18, 2019**. More information can be found at the workshop page.

The 5th International Workshop on Computational History (HistoInformatics 2019)

  • Melvin Wevers (DH LAB, KNAW Humanities Cluster)
  • Mohammed Hasanuzzaman (ADAPT Centre)
  • Gael Dias (Normandy University)
  • Marten During (University of Luxembourg)
  • Adam Jatowt (Kyoto University)

The HistoInformatics workshop series brings together researchers in the historical disciplines, computer science and associated disciplines as well as the cultural heritage sector. The main topics of the workshop are (1) support for historical research and analysis in general through the application of computer science theories or technologies, (2) analysis and re-use of historical texts, (3) visualizations of historical data, (4) provision of access to historical knowledge. We invite papers from a wide range of topics which are of relevance for history, the cultural heritage sector and digital humanities in general. We hope the workshop will result in a survey of current problems and potential solutions, with particular focus on exploring opportunities for collaboration and interaction of researchers working on various subareas within Computer Science, History Sciences, Digital Humanities and Digital Libraries.

Paper submission deadline is on **July 1, 2019**. More information can be found at the workshop page.

Tutorial: Introducing the Memento Tracer Framework for Scalable High-Quality Web Archiving

  • Martin Klein (Los Alamos National Laboratory)

Web archiving at scale and with high-quality is not a trivial endeavor. Given the dynamic nature of the web and the increasingly complex features incorporated into web pages, sophisticated capturing and archiving approaches are needed. This tutorial introduces the novel Memento Tracer Framework and invites attendees to a hands-on experience with our framework that was designed to track, capture, and archive scholarly artifacts. Memento Tracer takes an institutional perspective and focuses on artifacts created by or relevant to individual communities. The participants will learn about scalable and high-quality web archiving and leave with the satisfaction of having actively contributed to saving parts of the (scholarly) web.
