Call for PhD Workshop submissions

PhD students who are pursuing research related to the challenges of digital
preservation are warmly invited to participate in a PhD workshop organized
by PERICLES, which will be held on December 2, 2016.

PERICLES - Promoting and Enhancing Reuse of Information throughout the
Content Lifecycle taking account of Evolving Semantics - is a large EU
funded research project, in its fourth and final year, comprising of eleven
partners from six different countries, and which deals with challenges of
access to digital content in a changing environment. A final conference,
which will mark the conclusion of this project, will be held on November 30
- December 1st followed by a day of post-conference events including this
PhD workshop on December 2, 2016.

This workshop provides a forum for doctoral students to present and
discuss their research and receive feedback from peers and leading
scholars in the field. The research presented could be conducted in a
number of disciplines (e.g. computer science, information science, archival
science, mathematics, etc), but the common theme of the submitted
papers has to be related to digital preservation and the topic areas dealt
with within PERICLES. Doctoral students at all stages are encouraged to

This workshop will provide doctoral students a rare opportunity to learn,
develop, and share their research ideas in a highly competent, critical but
supportive environment. The students will receive feedback from mentors
who are members of the PERICLES project, and hence senior members of
the Digital Preservation research community. The authors of the accepted
papers will also be given the opportunity to attend the preceding
conference, enabling them to meet and network with an international
group of leading members of a community which may prove to be closely
relevant for the students and their continued endeavours.

Attendance is free of charge.

Wellcome Collection Conference Centre
183 Euston Rd,
London NW1 2BE

At the workshop, reasonable time will be allocated to the presentation and
discussion of each paper, hence the number of accepted papers will be
limited to only five or six, meaning that participation will be highly
competitive. The main selection criteria will be the quality of the submitted
papers and the relevance of the topic for issues addressed within PERICLES.

Research Themes
The submitted papers should study the preservation challenges in different
domains (e.g. digital art and media or experimental space science), and/or
explore topics including (but not limited to) the following:

- Preservation and accessibility of digital content
- Modelling of contextual information
- Provenance modelling
- Information extraction
- Automated capture and sheer curation
- Digital ecosystem modelling
- Ecosystem policy management
- Linked data
- Modelling of dependencies
- Ontologies: upper-level and domain-specific
- Dependencies
- Change management
- Semantic change & evolving semantics
- Significant environment information
- Data reuse
- Data management plans
- User community modelling

Research proposals
The workshop invites doctoral students from related fields (e.g. Computer
Science, Information Science, Archival Science, Mathematics, etc) to
submit ongoing research proposals for review and feedback. The research
proposals should not exceed 6000 words and should typically include the

1. Title of the proposal
2. Problem definition and research questions
3. Literature review
4. Theoretical framework and conceptual development
5. Proposed methodology
6. Results (achieved or anticipated)
7. References

An additional cover page should include the candidate¡¯s name, email
address, phone number(s), university, name of dissertation advisor(s), web
site address, and the progress made toward completion of the thesis (i.e.
beginning stages, midway, near completion, etc).

The research proposals should be submitted via e-mail to: [log in to unmask]
