Prof. Christian Chiarcos (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt)

The conceptualisation of space



13:30: Welcome and introductions

13:45: A presentation by Chiara Palladino. Abstract: Premodern geographical descriptions come from civilizations that did not use maps for wayfinding. We want to investigate how orientation in the landscape and spatial perceptions worked instead: starting from the analysis of spatial narratives as regular expressive patterns, and discussing possible ways of modelling, and visually representing, something "that was not meant to be represented.

14:30: Comments from cooperation partners and open discussion. 

15:30: Mini-presentations of related projects. Further discussions.

From around 19:00 (for those who want to take part): open discussion of any topic, related or not, with a bit to eat and drink.


All are welcome! Place for both events will be communicated later. 


If you are interested in giving a mini-presentations: please let us know by Monday June 24.


Please let us know by Wednesday June 26 if you plan to take part, so that we can plan the size of the room.



As a computational linguist, Christian Chiarcos explored Semantic Web and Linked Data from an NLP and DH perspective and contributed to the emergence of a community at the intersection of NLP and Semantic Web: He has been co-founder of the Open Linguistics Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation (OWLG, since 2010), he initiated and co-organized the Linked Data in Linguistics workshop series (since 2012), the Language, Data and Science conference series (since 2017), and the accompanying development of a Linguistic Linked Open Data (LLOD) cloud. Recent community activities include chairing the W3C Linked Data for Language Technology community and business group and the development of an OntoLex module for frequency, attestations and corpus information as part of the W3C Ontology-Lexica community group.
