*International Workshop on Semantic Web and Ontology Design for Cultural
Heritage (SWODCH 2021)*

@ Bolzano Summer of Knowledge 2021 (BOSK II), September 20-21, Bolzano,



SWODCH 2021 is the association of the 2nd edition of WODHSA (
http://www.loa.istc.cnr.it/WODHSA/index.php/cfp/) and the 4th edition of
SW4CH (https://sw4ch2018.ensma.fr/). It is also in continuation of the 1st
edition of ODOCH (http://odoch19.uniroma1.it/odoch19/odoch19) and the
special issue of the Semantic Web journal on Semantic Web for Cultural
Heritage (https://content.iospress.com/journals/semantic-web/12/2).

By merging these events, the overall goal of SWODCH 2021 is to provide a
scientific forum for the collaborative design of conceptual models and
ontologies for digital humanities and Semantic Web solutions for linking,
visualizing and analyzing cultural heritage data. Scholars and stakeholders
will have the opportunity to share their ideas, experiences, and analyses,
present the outcomes of their research, and discuss the related challenges.


Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the workshop will have a hybrid format,
allowing both physical and virtual participation.


We seek original and high-quality submissions related (but not limited) to
one or more of the following topic areas:

Conceptual analysis and ontology design for the Digital Humanities

- Domain ontologies or conceptual models for history, history of arts, book
studies, theatre, literature, editorial practices, archaeology, musicology,
cultural and natural - heritage (including architectural heritage), among

- Methodological aspects of ontology development for the Digital
Humanities, including the need for modelling the social (contextual)
dimension of both data and ontologies

- Use of ontology design patterns

- Case studies based on and lessons learned from the use of CIDOC-CRM or

- Logical and ontological analysis of CIDOC-CRM or FRBR, e.g., with respect
to foundational ontologies (DOLCE, UFO, BFO, etc.)

- Application of formal ontology theories for knowledge representation or
data management in the Digital Humanities

- Philosophical and sociological analysis of both digital models and
modelling practices in the Digital Humanities

- Social studies on the policies towards the standardization of ontologies
in the Digital Humanities

Semantic Web publishing, architectures and SW-based interaction for
Cultural Heritage

- Semantic Web content creation, annotation, and extraction

- Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment

- Virtual Cultural Heritage collections

- Peer-to-peer Cultural Heritage architectures

- E-infrastructures for Cultural Heritage

- Interoperability, virtually integrated Cultural Heritage collections

- Ontology-based data access or virtual knowledge graphs

- Reasoning strategies (e.g. context, temporal, spatial)

- Search, querying, and visualization of the Cultural Heritage on the
Semantic Web

- Personalized access of Cultural Heritage collections

- Context-aware information presentation

- Navigation and browsing (facets)

- Social aspects in Cultural Heritage access and presentation

- Trust and provenance issues in mixed collection and mixed vocabulary

Semantic Web-based applications for Cultural Heritage with clear lessons

- Digital Libraries

- Museums (virtual collections, mobile/ web-based museum guides)

- Tourist services

- Ambient Cultural Heritage

- Creative industries

We will accept two different types of contributions:

- Research articles for presenting original unpublished work, neither
submitted to, nor accepted for, any other venue.

- Extended abstracts for presenting work in progress, brief descriptions of
doctoral theses, or general overviews of research projects.

All the contributions to the workshop must be submitted according to the
LNCS format and must comply with the LNCS formatting guidelines available
Submitted *research articles* must not be shorter than 10 pages and must
not exceed 12 pages, including bibliography, while the submitted *extended
abstracts* must not be shorter than 5 pages and not exceed 6 pages,
including bibliography.

Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific
merit, originality and relevance to the workshop. Each paper will be
reviewed by three Program Committee members.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF, using this link:


Accepted papers will be published in a CEUR-WS volume.

The authors of the best workshop papers will be invited to prepare extended
versions of their papers after the workshop to be published in a journal
special issue.
