Doug Tudhope gave an invited presentation at a (virtual) all day seminar, “Web de Données et Enrichissement Sémantique” (Web of Data and Semantic Enrichment) on 18th March. The seminar was  organised by the GERiiCO Research Centre at the University of Lille. The other presenters were from Austria, France, Spain, USA.


Doug’s presentation was on a recent collaboration with Ceri Binding and Claudio Gnoli (University of Pavia). This work transformed the faceted Integrative Levels Classification (ILC) to standard SKOS RDF representation for the semantic web. Like other complex classifications, the ILC has various features that are challenging to represent in SKOS. The STELETO transformation tool, developed by Ceri Binding, was used for the transformation. A paper detailing and reflecting on the work has recently been published in the Journal of Documentation (“Migrating a complex classification scheme to the Semantic Web: expressing the Integrative Levels Classification using SKOS RDF”). Details including open access versions can be found in USW’s research repository.
