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
