Linked Resource Model for modelling evolving systems (3rd PERICLES Technical Workshop in Grenoble, France)

Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) organized a third technical workshop on using/extending the Linked Resource Model (LRM). The workshop was hosted by the XRCE in Grenoble, and took place on the 27-29 April 2015 (see blogs for the first two meetings). [1] [2] The LRM is an upper level ontology that is being developed within PERICLES, to enable the description of evolving digital ecosystems. Versions of the LRM that could...

October workshops: Introducing experts to key PERICLES concepts

Last month PERICLES ran two workshops with practitioners and experts in the fields of digital preservation and science data. The full-day events were organised at two different locations, London (15 October) and Brussels (29 October) to introduce specific topics that are key elements within PERICLES research and development.

How much metadata is too much (and how little is too little)?

How much metadata is too much (and how little is too little)? Practical Preservation and People, December 3rd 2015, Public Records Office of Northern Ireland The DPC metadata event brought together a spirited collection of people from projects and heritage institutions, all interested in seeking an answer to the question posed in the workshop's title: when collecting metadata, how much is too much? It sounds like a dry...

Exploring appraisal, quality assurance and risk assessment in the data continuum

PERICLES was invited by the IDCC to run a workshop on 25 February 2016 as part of the 11th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC16, Amsterdam). We prepared a half-day session on appraisal, quality assurance and risk assessment in relation to the lives of complex digital objects. The workshop was designed to introduce participants to some of the key concepts being explored in the PERICLES approach of...

SuCCESS’16 - First International Workshop on Semantic Change & Evolving Semantics

The evolution and change of semantics is central to the objectives of the PERICLES project: semantics relates to our shared understanding of the world around us, and in cases where there is a mismatch, then this can lead to a breakdown in our shared understanding and an inability to communicate and exchange information effectively. A couple of well-known examples might be US versus UK English, where in the former you would use the...

A workshop on the use of Mediainfo, MediaConch and FFmpeg in the preservation of digital video

During late July 2016, Dave Rice and Ashley Blewer delivered two workshops at Tate Britain in London on the use of Mediainfo, MediaConch and FFmpeg in the preservation of digital video. These two workshops are a good example of the type of impact projects such as PERICLES can have and the resulting motivation they can engender, in this case leading on from the collaboration between Dave Rice and the PERICLES Project on...

PERICLES workshop 'From Semantics of Change to Change of Semantics', 19 May 2015

Change management is one of the key element of the modelling approach developed within the PERICLES project to secure the long-term usability of digital resources. In this half-day workshop PERICLES project members will briefly present how a formal language for representing linked resources can address change on an abstract level, how this language can be deployed for domain-specific representations, and how the study of semantic...
