SDA 2011 is the 1st International Workshop on Semantic Digital Archives
The Semantic Digital Archives Workshop aims at promoting and discussing sophisticated knowledge representation and knowledge management solutions specifically designed for improving Archival Information Systems.Over the past couple of decades, digitally created content has come to permeate all aspects of our lives and the life cycle of these objects is increasingly exclusively digital. Therefore, sustainable long-term curation perspectives for our digital cultural heritage are essential. Digital content poses many socio-cultural and technological challenges which create obstacles to long-term or indefinite preservation. Changing technologies and shifting user communities as well as the increasing complexity of digital content being enriched with software and multimedia attachments are only a few examples. Dealing with these challenges is the central theme of the workshop.
This full day workshop is an exciting opportunity for collaboration and cross-fertilization between the Digital Libraries, the Digital Archives and the Semantic Web community. It specifically encourages closer dialogue between the technical oriented communities and researchers from the (digital) humanities and social sciences as well as cultural heritage institutions.
