Workshop announcement:

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

Imperial College Internet Institute

Imperial College London

30 March, 2006,
9:30 am - 5:30 pm

The CIDOC CRM Special Interest Group and Imperial College London invite you to attend a workshop focusing on the problems of semantic 
interoperability for e-Research in the Sciences, Arts and Humanities which is intended to examine research challenges and strategies in the 
areas of knowledge management, information search, retrieval and integration, semantic interoperability and knowledge extraction, with the 
goal of breaking down the artificial barriers between these disciplines and forging a common research agenda for working across these 
traditionally separate domains. The central aim of this workshop is to bring together a group of international researchers from the arts, 
humanities and sciences to clarify the extent to which recent advances in semantic web and e-Science technologies can offer generic 
solutions to a wide range of application areas, to examine and challenge preconceptions about the creation and implementation of non-domain 
specific ontologies, to evaluate ontology driven semantic interoperability as a strategy for developing knowledge technologies across 
multiple heterogeneous collections, and to access new methods of research that naturally follow from the use of these new technologies. 
Presentations will be offered in the areas of Biodiversity, Environmental Informatics, Geo-Science, Knowledge Organisation Systems, Mapping 
Technologies, Cultural Heritage in Museums, Libraries and Archives, Natural Language Processing and Robotics. The workshop will close
with a common discussion.

Presentations and a summary of the discussion will be published on the Web. There is no fee for attending this workshop, but 
pre-registration is required: please notify Dolores Iorizzo, London e-Science Centre, Imperial College London, if you plan to attend 
(d.iorizzo at ic.ac.uk).
