*Workshop: Extending, Mapping and Focusing the CRM*19th International
Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL2015) September
17, 2015, Poznań, Poland

*Workshop objectives:*
The goal of the workshop is to present, discuss and take stock of the
developments of the CIDOC CRM in a number of domains. The importance of CRM
in heritage-related digital libraries and dataset infrastructures is
confirmed by the increasing number of cultural heritage institutions and
research projects adopting CRM and its extensions to foster datasets
interoperability. Recently various extensions have been presented, for
example to incorporate geographical concepts, digital provenance,
scientific applications, archaeology, built structures and scientific
reasoning. On the other hand, CRM has proved to be pivotal to natural
language processing of heritage datasets, gazetteers and thesauri, linked
open data and other methods for the use and re-use of dataset collections
for digital humanities, history and archaeology.

*Workshop format:*
The workshop is organized as a half-day event, from 13.30-18.00.

   - A position paper prepared by the organizers will present a critical
   survey of the current status of the CRM
   - Up to 10 papers, presented in 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion
