*** apologize for multiple postings **** International Workshop "ONTOLOGY BASED MODELLING IN THE HUMANITIES" 7-9 April 2006, University of Hamburg http://www.c-phil.uni-hamburg.de/view/Main/OntologyWorkshop **** REGISTRATION POSSIBLE UNTIL 30.03.2005 ****** In the new area of digitalized information, researchers from the humanities face a new problem: semantic data organisation. In contrast with the data processed by natural sciences, the material in most fields of humanities is mostly unstructured. The structuring of such data is a complex problem that can be solved only by formal models and languages from computer science. However the application of formal models from formal sciences (especially computing) is itself a scientific problem as humanists have their own scientific culture not only in the argumentation and meta-theories but also in their way of communication. With the development of the Semantic Web the ?ontology?-concept became an important ?key? for data-structuring. Some ontologies were developed also in the Humanities, but there is still no overview of what exists, which standards are used and how well the current ontologies meet the users requirements.
