Description

Explicit rich representations of domain knowledge, models, processes, historical development, and argumentation are important to support e-science, e-social science and digital humanities research. Ontologies define concept hierarchies and identify important types of relations between concepts as well as entities of interest. However, to support e-research as well as real applications, ontologies need to build on metadata and linked data to cover representation of complex structures and systems, dynamic models and processes, flow of temporal events, as well as discourse structure, evolution of knowledge, argumentation and information across types of documents and media.

This workshop will explore frameworks for ontological representation with rich semantics, and applications in diverse knowledge domains such as biology and medicine, humanities and art, law, systems analysis and design, clinical decision support systems, etc.

The Workshop is open to academics, researchers, graduate students, librarians and knowledge organization professionals who are doing research and professional work related to knowledge organization, metadata, linked data, ontology, and more complex approaches.

This Workshop follows three previous successful Workshops (http://richsemantics.org/):

  • RICH 2016 Tsukuba: Rich Semantics and Direct Representation for Digital Collections, Workshop at 2016 Asian Digital Library Conference, Dec 9, 2016
  • RICH 2017 Toronto: Workshop at JCDL 2017 (ACM/IEEE Joint Digital Library Conference), June 22, 2017
  • RICH 2018 Singapore: Workshop on Ontology and Rich Semantics: Frameworks and Applications, Nov 26, 2018 (https://blogs.ntu.edu.sg/chriskhoo/ontology-rich-semantics/)

Workshop outline:

  • Introduction to ontology and rich semantics
    Chris Khoo, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
  • Keynote 1: Computational models for rich semantic systems
    Robert B Allen, Richsemantics.org, USA
  • Keynote 2: Art & Architecture Thesaurus (AAT) extensions for cultural-specific concepts: Issues, methods and applications
    Sophy Shu-Jiun Chen, Academia Sinica Digital Center, Taiwan
  • Several presentations of completed or ongoing projects.
