ALOE in Graz and Crete

Busy times. Tomorrow I’ll fly to Graz for the I-KNOW ‘07. I’ll give a talk on Wednesday at 2pm about “Sharing Digital Resources and Metadata for Open and Flexible Knowledge Management Systems”, presenting some of the work that my colleague Rafael Schirru and me did in the last months in the ALOE project.

Here’s the abstract:

This paper discusses the requirements of a framework for sharing digital resources and metadata to meet the needs of open, flexible Knowledge Management solutions. The changing nature of the Web and its users as observed in recent years clearly establishes the need for new approaches and technologies to fully exploit the potential for working with existing digital resources. Formal metadata about the resources can be combined with information created in lightweight and user-centric approaches in order to significantly enhance resource descriptions and enable more efficient access to existing knowledge. The ALOE system, currently in development at DFKI, is one such solution and it is used here as the basis for a sample realization of an appropriate framework.

On Friday, I’ll also present some of this work in the Pro-LC Workshop “Process-Oriented Learning and Knowledge Work”, with a focus on “Sharing Learning Resources and Metadata”.

And one week later, I’ll present a poster about ALOE during EC-TEL 2007 in Crete, where Martin Wolpers, Eric Ras and me will also organize LOKMOL 2007 on Tuesday, September 18th.
