QURATOR 2020 – Conference on Digital Curation Technologies

20-21 January 2020, Berlin, Germany 

Digital curation is a complex time and knowledge intensive process, in which knowledge workers create new content artifacts and knowledge insights from heterogeneous sources (content, data, knowledge). The work required for this includes, e.g., selecting, summarizing, scheduling, translating, localising, structuring, condensing, enriching, visualizing and explaining the various contents, taking into account the steadily growing speed, volume and number of sources such as online newspapers, news portals, social media, linked data, business information systems, IoT data streams etc. AI, in particular from the field of language and semantic knowledge technologies, is used to support these tasks and thereby accelerate and improve them qualitatively.

Call for Papers

Here you can find all information about the Call for Papers for the QURATOR 2020 – Conference on Digital Curation Technologies. The paper submission has been extended until 4 November 2019.

Call for Papers


The conference will take place on two days. On the first day, the QURATOR partners will present their projects and provide insights into the current status of the research results. On the second day, four different scientific and user workshops will take place in parallel, half or full day. Use cases will be developed specifically for the industry, media, culture and health sectors. 


As digital communication is becoming more and more important, organisations struggle to manage content, data and knowledge. Content is often stored in several different systems making it difficult to find the relevant information quickly. Meta data of digital assets lack the quality necessary for editorial use. A growing amount of unstructured data is lost for knowledge management preventing organisations from gaining insights into their business processes and supply chains. The solution? Curation Technologies.

Exploring the future of digital communication

It's all about digital curation technologies

The conference provides a forum on the use of digital curation technologies in application domains  for, e.g., media, journalism, logistics, cultural heritage, health care and life sciences, energy, industry. Of particular relevance are papers that demonstrate the applied use of digital curation technologies and tools in domain-specific use cases and that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence and Semantic Web, data analytics and machine learning, information/content and knowledge management systems, information retrieval, knowledge discovery, and computational linguistics.
