CURATION AND RESEARCH USE OF THE PAST WEB Lisbon 29-30 March 2017 Web archiving efforts have now been underway for over twenty years, generating an expanding core of data crucial for present and future explorations of human political, cultural, economic and social activity since the mid 1990s. Practices around both the creation and use of web archives are rapidly evolving. What technical, ethical, and institutional approaches are necessary to advance use of web archives for scholarship and other use cases? How are researchers using the archived web right now, and in which new directions is that research heading? What innovations, collaborations, and adaptations are necessary to sustain the efficacy of web archiving? The 2017 Web Archiving Conference (WAC), held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC), aims to bring together practitioners, librarians, archivists, historians, humanists, computer scientists, and other parties interested in expanding and harnessing the potential of preserved web heritage.
Monica Morrison's insight:
Looks like a great meeting

A Knowledge-Based Framework for Events Representation and Reuse from Historical Archives - Springer

A Knowledge-Based Framework for Events Representation and Reuse from Historical Archives - Springer | Legacy Information Resources | Scoop.it
"Thanks to the digitization techniques, historical archives become source of a considerable amount of biographical, factual and geographical data, that need to be structured in order to be usable in higher-level applications. In this paper we present the project of an ontology-based framework aimed at formally representing and extracting historical events from archives; this process should serve to the purpose of (semi)-automatically building narratives that allow users to explore the archives themselves."
