|Post subject:||"Translating the World of Knowledge" at Heidelberg|
Within the Action 31 ("Stability and Adaptation of Classification Sytems in a Cross-Cultural Perspective") of the COST program of the European Science Foundation, there will be a colloquium of the Working Group 3 ("Explicit Classification") to be held at the Internationales Wissenschaftsforum der Universität Heidelberg (IWH), Hauptstr. 242, D-69117 Heidelberg (http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/zentral/iwh/index.html) on Monday, November 10, 2008, from 9.30 am through 6 pm.
Entitled “Translating the World of Knowledge: Lexical Ontologies in a Cross Cultural Perspective”, the colloquium will further explore avenues of research opened up during previous WG 3 meetings and focus particularly on the specification and operational capability of lexical ontologies – i.e., explicit specifications of a representational vocabulary for a shared domain of discourse comprising definitions of classes, relations, functions, and other objects – in the process of translating formally represented bodies of knowledge.
Contributors include specialists from such diverse fields as Egyptology, Assyriology, Sinology, Classical Archaeology, and Linguistics.
