3rd International Workshop on Semantic Digital Archives (SDA)
in conjunction with the 17th Int. Conference on Theory and Practice of
Digital Libraries (TPDL)

26th September 2013 in Valetta, Malta



The Semantic Digital Archives (SDA) workshop series fosters innovative
discussion of knowledge representation and knowledge management solutions
specifically designed for improving Archival Information Systems (AISs).
Novel applications of semantic Web technologies and Linked Data offer
possibilities to advance approaches to digital curation and preservation.

During the last quarter of a century the explosion in digital content
creation and use has transformed the relationship individuals and society
have with information. Therefore, sustainable long-term curation approaches
to our digital cultural heritage are essential. Handling digital content in
secure ways poses many socio-cultural and technological challenges.
Changing technologies and shifting user communities as well as the
increasing complexity of digital content being enriched with software and
multimedia attachments are a couple of examples. Addressing the obstacles
to curation and preservation is the central theme of the workshop. This
full day workshop is an exciting opportunity for collaboration and
cross-fertilization between the Digital Libraries, the Digital Preservation
and the Semantic Web community. A closer dialogue between the technical
oriented communities and researchers from the (digital) humanities and
social sciences as well as cultural heritage institutions is encouraged.


We intend to have an open discussion on topics related to the general
subject of Semantic Digital Archives. Hence, we welcome contributions that
focus on, but are not limited to:

* Archival information systems (AIS)
* AIS Architectures
* Archival information infrastructure frameworks (AII)
* Ontologies & linked data for AIS, AII and digital libraries
* Logical theories for digital archives & digital preservation
* Knowledge evolution
* (Semantic) provenance models
* Contextualization of archives
* Semantic long-term storage & hardware organization for AIS & AII
* Semantic extensions of emulation/virtualization methodologies tailored
* Semantic multimedia AIS, AII & multimedia libraries
* Implementations & evaluations of (semantic) AIS, AII & semantic digital
* Preservation of scientific and research data
* Preservation of work flow processes
* Semantic search & semantic information retrieval in digital archives and
digital libraries
* Implementations and evaluations of semantic digital archives
* User studies focusing on end-user needs and information seeking behavior
of end-users (document triage)
* Web Archives
* (Semantic) Preservation Processes and Protocols
* Semantic (Web) services implementing AIS & AII
* Information integration/semantic ingest (e.g. from digital libraries)
* Trust for ingest & data security/integrity check for long-term storage of
archival records
* Semantic extensions of emulation/virtualization methodologies for digital
* Migration strategies based on Semantic Web technologies Submission Details
