Dear colleagues,

following the successful workshop at the TPDL2015 Conference held few weeks ago, the International Journal on Digital Libraries has agreed to publish a special issue on "Extending, Mapping and Focusing the CIDOC CRM”.

The Call for Papers is now available online here:

http://www.springer.com/799 (on the right side of the page, under “Special Issues: Call for Papers”)

Here are the important aspects of the CfP:

Submitted papers should assess and consolidate the advancement of CRM applications and they should indicate new avenues for future research in the knowledge organization domain, as regards heritage-related applications. They should also foster cross-domain fertilization between the heritage and digital libraries communities and provide a forum for debating the mutual impact of research questions in archaeology and heritage versus the most recent trends in digital libraries investigations. Due to the specific theme, contributions will be required to address together both knowledge organization aspects and the application profile. They will consist of research papers or top-quality reports of good practices, highlighting their exemplary innovation content.

Themes will include, but not limit to:

	•  Extensions and specializations of the CRM for heritage and archaeology applications
	•  Extensions and specializations of the CRM in digital humanities
	•  Mapping existing metadata schemas to the CRM
	•  Mapping repositories and tools
	•  CRM and other documentation standards
	•  Using CRM for gazetteers and thesauri
	•  Using CRM in Linked Data
	•  CRM and Natural Language Processing
	•  Formalization of CRM
	•  Querying, searching and faceted browsing of CRM repositories
