Dear All,

The Workshop on

Semantic Interoperability for e-Research
in the Sciences, Arts and Humanities

took place at Imperial College London 30 March, 2006.

It was organized by Dolores Iorizzo from Imperial College
as an initiative of the Department of Computing
of Imperial College, the CIDOC CRM Special Interest Group
and DELOS NoE.

The workshop, attended by a large audience,
focused on the problems of semantic interoperability
for e-Research in the Sciences, Arts and Humanities, knowledge
management and the role of generic and domain specific ontologies.
Presentations from Information Technology and Sciences suggested
the feasibility of implementing intellectually demanding, domain-
overarching information integration and that the CIDOC CRM appears to
have a potential to evolve into a wider information model
comprising not only archives, libraries and museums, but also
scientific records.

We want to thank Dolores for the making of the program and
the organisation of this successful workshop. Presentations and a
summary of the discussion will soon be published on the Web.

The next CRM Workshop will take place in October, 23-24, in Crete, Greece.

Best regards,
