4th International Workshop on Semantic Digital Archives (SDA)

in conjunction with the Digital Libraries 2014
the conjoined conferences
ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2014) and
Intl. Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL 2014)

London, 8th-12th September 2014


The Semantic Digital Archives (SDA) workshop series fosters innovative discussion of knowledge representation and knowledge management solutions specifically designed for improving Archival Information Systems (AISs). Novel applications of semantic Web technologies and Linked Data offer possibilities to advance approaches to digital curation and preservation.

During the last quarter of a century the explosion in digital content creation and use has transformed the relationship individuals and society have with information. Therefore, sustainable long-term curation approaches to our digital cultural heritage are essential. Handling digital content in secure ways poses many socio-cultural and technological challenges. Changing technologies and shifting user communities as well as the increasing complexity of digital content being enriched with software and multimedia attachments are a couple of examples. Addressing the obstacles to curation and preservation 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 Preservation and the Semantic Web community. A closer dialogue between the technical oriented communities and researchers from the (digital) humanities and social sciences as well as cultural heritage institutions is encouraged.


We intend to have an open discussion on topics related to the general subject of Semantic Digital Archives. Hence, we welcome contributions that focus on, but are not limited to:

- Architectures and Frameworks for semantic AIS and Archival Information Infrastructures (AII)
- Semantic (Web) services implementing AIS & AII
- Contextualization of digital archives, museums and digital libraries
- Linked data for AIS, AII, museums and digital libraries
- Ontologies for AIS, AII, museums and digital libraries
- Semantics of complex content (e.g. Social Media, Multimedia)
- Information integration/semantic ingest (e.g. from digital libraries)
- Semantic search & information retrieval in digital archives, digital museums and digital libraries
- User interfaces for (semantic) AIS, AII, digital museums & semantic digital libraries
- Semantics for Preservation Processes and Protocols
- Preservation of work flow processes
- provenance models (data provenance, PROV-O, ...)
- Semantics for the appraisal and selection of content
- Evolving semantics in long-term archives
- Trust for ingest & data security/integrity check for long-term storage of archival records
- User studies focusing on end-user needs and information seeking behavior of end-users
- Implementations & evaluations of (semantic) AIS, AII, semantic digital museums & semantic digital libraries
- Semantic long-term storage & hardware organization for AIS & AII & digital libraries


Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers related to the aforementioned topics. We invite:

* regular papers (8 to 12 pages)
* short papers (2 to 6 pages)

All submissions are required to be in PDF format. Long and short paper submissions must be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS format (

Please submit your manuscript using the EasyChair online submission system

All submissions will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee. All papers accepted at the Semantic Digital Archives Workshop must be presented during the Workshop by a SDA Workshop registered participant. Papers presented at the Workshop will be published in the Workshop proceedings, which will be available as a separate publication after the Workshop.


* Deadline for submissions: June 22, 2014
* Acceptance Notification: July 21, 2014
* Camera-ready papers: August 24, 2014
* Workshop: September 12, 2014
