The Bibliotheca Albertina will start the "Digital Humanities Day Leipzig" series, organized are the Saxon Academyof Sciences Leipzig and the University Library Leipzig. A wide variety of projects from the humanities and cultural scienceswill present and discuss their digitization concepts, while a poster slam and talks provide opportunities for exchange and networking. The event is open to all those interested.

The research project PCP-on-web will start on April 1st, 2017, at the University of Applied Sciences in Leipzig. The project is an collaborative research project between computer scientists and historians in cooperation with the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel The aim of the three-year project is the development and testing of a new methodology within the field of e-science, based on digital databases as sources for answering the research questions. The project is funded by the German Research Foundation.

The UNINETTUNO is inspired by the teaching model of NETTUNO Consortium, through which thousands of students since 1992 have graduated from a distance thanks to the adoption of telematics, and the international project MedNet'U (Mediterranean Network of Universities), funded by the European Commission under the EUMEDIS program, for the creation of a Euro-Mediterranean distance University.

It was established by decree of 15 April 2005 by the Ministry of Education, University and Research and releases academic qualifications legally recognized in Italy, Europe and some Mediterranean countries.

It has established links and collaboration agreements with universities around the world, which in some cases also lead to the provision of joint academic degrees or double degrees.

HTWK is Partner within LMPI-Project

lmpi

The LMPI project seeks to establish e-learning Bachelor's and Master's degrees for the protection of computer systems and networks in three Partner Countries, Vietnam, Moldova and Kazakhstan. In order to bridge skills gaps at both technician and engineering levels, the partners will develop a lifelong learning program in this area for employers. The curriculum to be developed will meet the needs of private companies which are seeking specialists to protect themselves against cybercrime.

nullWill Hanley [1], a historian at the Florida State University [2], visits the faculty of Computer science, Mathematics and Natural science at Leipzig University of applied Science (HTWK). His research focuses on the legal history of the Middle East. Within his his one-month research visit, Will Hanley examined current research of the university-wide research group Agile Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web (AKSW) [3] on their suitability for use for the development of scientific databases and related new collaborative research methods.

As part of a university open seminar "Software and Knowledge Engineering for the Semantic Web" on December, 12th at 9:30 am (GU 112), Will Hanley will present and discuss his relevant research work  within this field.

The research visit is supported by a grant of the DAAD.

The First DBpedia community meeting will be held at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam on 30 January 2014. The focus of the meeting in addition is on the use of DBpedia in different areas. In a break-out session on Exploring the connection of DBpedia to Library and Cultural Heritage questions regarding use of DBpedia in the context of libraries will be discussed in the afternoon.

Vom 25. bis 27. November findet zum 5. Mal die Fachtagung Semantic Web in Bibliotheken organisiert durch das ZBW – Leibniz-Informationszentrum Wirtschaft und Hochschulbibliothekszentrum des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen (hbz) statt.

SWIB - Semantic Web in Libraries

...continue reading Semantic Web in Libraries (SWIB13)

Scientific work with digital media such as online publications and scientific databases, is leading to new areas of research and new methodological approaches. It expands research both through novel access method and a large amount of available information. One aspect is linking of such media and databases on the web using the Linked Open Data paradigm consequently, semantic interoperability can be achieved through an alignment of vocabularies in the context of each research domains.

The focus of the workshop is on vocabularies of different domains within the humanities and social sciences, its development and publication on the Web, as well as alignment methods. The workshop addresses both scientists in the field of humanities and social science, IT experts in libraries and computer scientists. ...continue reading CfP: Workshop on OWL vocabularies within the context of digital collaboration in research
