Recent funding successes by the Hypermedia Research Unit featured in the second edition of the University’s Research Matters bulletin (26/03/13).
SENESCHAL (Semantic ENrichment Enabling Sustainability of arCHAeological
Links) is funded by the AHRC’s Follow on Fund programme (£76,000) and builds on
STAR/STELLAR outcomes that include the publication of major archaeological
excavation datasets as Linked Data.
ARIADNE (Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Dataset Networking in Europe) is a 4 year project funded by the EU (eu 205,000 to Glamorgan). It is an EU FP7 Infrastructures project involving 24 partners, with Glamorgan one of two UK partners (with the Archaeology Data Service at the University of York). ARIADNE
aims to integrate the existing archaeological research data infrastructures so that
researchers can use the various distributed datasets. It will build on STAR/STELLAR
Linked Data and Web Service approaches, together with Natural Language Processing
to enhance access to archaeological grey literature.
The DIGGING INTO METADATA project is a 2 year collaboration between Glamorgan and
the MIMAS Data Centre based at the University of Manchester, together with the
University of Drexel in Philadelphia. The project was one of the winners
of the 2011 Digging into Data Challenge. The objectives of Digging into
Metadata are to support resource discovery across different repositories (digital libraries)
of web resources using Glamorgan techniques that automatically generate
Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC)metadata from existing keywords, titles and
