Ariadne overview

  1. 1. The ARIADNE project Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Data Networking in Europe Franco Niccolucci PIN Project Coordinator ARIADNE is funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme
  2. 2. What is ARIADNE • ARIADNE is a EU-funded project aimed at integrating the European Research Infrastructures on archaeological datasets • Its overall goal is to overcome the fragmentation of archaeological data repositories and to foster a culture of archaeological data sharing and re-using • Start date: 1st February 2013 •
  3. 3. ARIADNE focus • ARIADNE is focused on archaeology and, in general, on tangible heritage • Its disciplinary scope has very specific methods and needs for integraFon • There are common interests with digital humaniFes (texts) and history, so we are collaboraFng with DARIAH on content, methods and tools • Very important overlap with conservaFon and restoraFon, so we are establishing strong collaboraFons with projects in this domain
  4. 4. The ARIADNE partnership • Coordination – PIN – UoY-ADS
  5. 5. Project activities • Networking activities – Community building: involving researchers and institutions in sharing data and establishing together guidelines – Standardization and good practices • Trans-National Access – Training – Access to on-line resources • Research activities – Knowledge organization – Data management – New or improved tools to extract information – Advances in methodology
  6. 6. Progress in the iniFal six months Networking • Set up users’ survey and SIGs • Established cooperaFon agreements with insFtuFons not belonging to the partnership TNA • Outlined the training program for 2014 – Summer schools – Individual visits
  7. 7. Progress in the iniFal six months Joint Research • Started the design of integraFon – Mapping metadata schemas to CIDOC-­‐CRM • Working on an extension of CIDOC-­‐CRM suitable for archaeological documentaFon – DraX proposal for excavaFon data in preparaFon • CreaFon of the ACDM
  8. 8. The ACDM • The ARIADNE Catalog Data Model (ACDM) aims at describing datasets, services, and resources in the archaeological domain – So far it addresses databases, collecFons, thesauri, with plans for covering all relevant resource types • Based on DCAT (W3C recomm.) and other widespread ontologies • Data collected into a registry, using a data acquisiFon tool • To be used internally to support integraFon design • Conceived to became a publicly available service and to be extended to other domains (e.g. conservaFon/ restoraFon)
  9. 9. CollaboraFon with DARIAH Planned joint acFviFes • Coordinated summer schools – Open to free parFcipaFon for DARIAH-­‐related scholars – Jointly agreed programs/content – DARIAH’s label for ARIADNE courses • Availability of sharing/adapFng the ACDM structure and tools for DARIAH’s dataset survey • InvitaFon to join ARIADNE SIGs and/or parFcipaFon in ARIADNE’s acFvity through a cooperaFon agreement, for DARIAH affiliated insFtuFons/projects
