Workshop 1: Metadata Modeling, Deep Image Annotation, and KOS Vocabulary Development for Digital Collections of Cultural Objects
organised by Marcia Zeng and Jian Qin.
Although general metadata standards and KOS vocabularies in libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) have been established, applying them to individual domains often requires customization of these standards and KOS through developing models and vocabularies in order for individual domains and collections to be able to handle cultural heritage materials.
This workshop is organized to share experiences and challenges in managing (meta)data for unconventional cultural objects that are curated virtually and physically at digital collections. It gives opportunities to report the findings from experiments and research for different types of special cultural objects oriented at various Asian locations. Specifically, the workshop will focus on metadata modeling, deep image annotation, and KOS vocabulary development for cultural object digital collections of tangible and intangible cultural heritages.

Tutorial: Linked Data for Digital Libraries
organised by Terhi Nurmikko-Fuller.
This tutorial provides an introduction to the concepts and technologies behind Linked Data. Participants will become familiar with tools, methods, and workflows used in the production of data suitable for the Semantic Web. Topics
covered will include the RDF (Resource Description Framework) data model, ontologies, and querying using SPARQL (SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language), all grounded in examples from a digital library context.
Panel: Digital repatriation and indigenous information
Further programme details will be made available closer to the conference.
