Think ontologically: An Introduction to the use of Ontologies in Archaeology and Digital Humanities

Friday, June 9, 2017

On Friday 9th June the workshop “Think ontologically: An Introduction to the use of Ontologies in Archaeology and Digital Humanities” will take place at the University of Leicester. This activity, funded by Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership and organized in collaboration by the College of Social Sciences, Art and Humanities, the School of Archaeology and Ancient History and the Department of Informatics, aims to provide this training to students from all six universities of the M3C DTP and enable them to network with academics using ontological databases. This training course will not only benefit anyone who requires the use of Information Science Ontology in their PhD research, but also enhance their post-PhD career prospects while getting involved with people working in current research networks. The activity has been thought to create an environment where social networking can happen among participants, the trainer and speakers.

In order to show practically the usefulness of Information Science Ontologies and to train students, this workshop will be divided into two parts: different papers will be given by speakers in the fields of Archaeology and Digital Humanities showing results obtained with the applications of Information Science Ontology in their research (Prof. Penelope Allison, Mr. Ruben Montoya Dr. Alessandro Quercia, Mr. Daniel Van Helden, Prof. Emilio Tuosto, Dr. Charlotte Tupman, Prof. Lin Foxhall and Dr. Yi Hong); additionally, four hours of training will be given in the afternoon to get attendees involved in the use of Protégé and the Visual Query Tool (training will be provided by Dr. Yi Hong).

Places are limited to 25, and half of them will be reserved to M3C DTP students. Please, do reserve your place at .
