We would like to announce the next HIRMEOS workshop:

Entity-Fishing for Digital Humanities and Scholarly Publishing

Tuesday, 04 September 2018, 9:30-17:00

Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen

Vortragsraum, SUB historical Building

Papendieck 14

37073 Göttingen



In the course of the project, different workshops are being organized in order to present and discuss the implementation of services and tools for digital monographs on Open Access publishing platforms. After the workshop at the University of Turin about the role of identifiers in research evaluation, now we want to discuss the possible application of entity recognition to digital publishing.

Entity-fishing is a service that enables the automatic extraction of concepts via Wikidata, so that persons, locations, organizations etc. can be uniquely identified and disambiguated. The HIRMEOS partners have tested various applications of this service on their digital platforms and for a quick overview you can have a look at our factsheet.

The workshop is organized into two main parts. During the morning session, the entity-fishing service and its meaning for scholarly work will be presented. In the afternoon, after a short presentation of the last experimental implementations on our platforms, we will focus on practical issues related to other possible use scenarios of the HIRMEOS entity-fishing service. To this end, we plan a roundtable in which three proposals for new usages of this service on digital platforms will be discussed in detail, paying particular attention to technical aspects. In this way, it should be possible to find concrete solutions for the specific difficulties in implementing a certain use scenario and, more generally, to define guidelines for future applications of this service by publishers who are not directly involved in the HIRMEOS project.
