The 1st edition of the workshop APlace4Places, current trends and
challenges in the development and use of geo-historical gazetteers, will
hold in conjunction with the 2016 Digital Humanities conference in Kraków,
Poland. The present workshop aims to investigate the latest
developments of *geo-historical
gazetteers and their impact in natural language processing and digital
humanities studies*. In particular the workshop will deal with crucial
problems concerning the geo-spatial models of representation for ancient
places, and the management of temporal information for geographic features
in general. Current projects concerning the publication of *geo-historical
data as Linked Open Data*, as well as their exploitation for annotating and
enriching texts will also be discussed, alongside with more theoretical
issues on *vocabularies and ontologies*. A group of well known invited
scholars will hold 15 minutes presentations, discussing different and
approaches to the topic, ranging from engineering, data models, standards
and publication, corpus annotation models, visualization. An interactive
discussion with workshop attendees about their current projects as well as
a sum up panel will constitute an occasion for the community to gather
together and harmonize efforts. The intended audience are* scholars, data
designers, and software developers* who are or will be involved in research
projects concerning the spatial humanities.

The workshop is endorsed by The GeoHumanities Special Interest Group (SIG)
of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations.

The workshop will take place on Monday, 11/Jul/2016: 9:30am - 6:00pm. Save
the date!
