Die Überlegungen, die Francesco Beretta und Kollegen zu einer Ontologie für die historischen Wissenschaften auf Basis von CIDOC-CRM seit einigen Jahren anstellen, gehen in die nächste Runde. Am 23. und 24. November dieses Jahres wird ein entsprechender Workshop zu „Data for History“ (http://dataforhistory.org/) an der ENS in Lyon stattfinden. Mehr Informationen zu diesem Vorhaben finden sich auch auf den folgenden Folien: www.cidoc-crm.org/sites/default/files/intervention_FBeretta_20170403.pdf

Die Veranstalter freuen sich über Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer, die ggf. auch eigene Projekte, die zu dieser Fragestellung passen, kurz (5 min.) vorstellen möchten. Übernachtungskosten für einen Teilnehmer/Projekt können voraussichtlich je nach Verfügbarkeit der Mittel übernommen werden. Eine Anmeldung sollte man am besten direkt bei Herrn Beretta oder Herrn Alamercery vornehmen. Hier der Originaltext der Ankündigung der Tagung:

We are please to announce that the founding workshop of the international consortium for the development of a CIDOC-CRM hist extension „Data for History“ will be held on 23-24 November 2017 at the École normale supérieure de Lyon (France).

The purpose of the Data for History consortium is to establish a common method for modelling, curating and managing data in historical research. Such a method would provide foundational support to historical research projects adopting a framework of collaborative, cumulative and interoperable scientific data production and investigation. The consortium aims to build up an international community of historians and computer scientists to first develop and then maintain a common ontological model that would allow for domain specific, semantically robust data integration and interoperability. The consortium aims to build this model as an extension of the CIDOC-CRM, in order to integrate to a broader cross-disciplinary modelling and data community. It begins already with the foundational modelling experience and data developed within the symogih.org project.

To support this process, the consortium has undertaken the development of an ontology management system which is designed to facilitate the understanding of different data models and ontologies related to the domain of historical research and support an open ontology development process. This platform will support a controlled development process of the ontology where the modification of the model (addition/modification/subtraction of classes and properties) will be tracked and submitted to a validation process by the expert community. This open and traceable process aims to foster the coherence and interoperability of the ontology model development in the domain of historical research. It will also allow the management of specific data models for research projects and use them for data production.

Here is the provisional programme :

  • 23 November 2017
    • 15.00 Introduction
    • 15.15 dataforhistory.org project presentation: a proposition
    • 16.00 spotlight presentation of present projects (5 minutes presentations)
    • break
    • 17.30 general discussion about the dataforhistory.org proposition
    • 19.00 dinner
  •  24 November 2017
    • 9.00 – 10.30 Activity planning (Planning of the common activity in the next months)
    • break
    • 11.00-12.30 Funding – Next project calls

To organize the workshop in the best conditions, please let us know quickly if you are going to participate.

We encourage you to present your project in the spotlight session and explain, if possible, the interest of the consortium as described above for your work. If you wish to propose a presentation, please tell us its title as soon as possible in order to establish the final programm.

Accommodation for foreign guests will be provided, travel costs remaining at their expense. Please let us know if you need a reservation for one or two nights in a hotel. If you think that other colleagues might be interested in this workshop, please do not hesitate to send them this message. For budgetary reasons, however, we are obliged to limit the cost of hosting to one representative per project.

With best regards,

Francesco Beretta, head of the digital history department (PHN)

Vincent Alamercery, coordinator of the PHN’s scientific projects
