International Workshop "ONTOLOGY BASED MODELLING IN THE
HUMANITIES" 7-9 April 2006, University of Hamburg
**** 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
