According to the organizers more than 700 industry leaders, researchers and policy makers gathered at this event to discuss recent developments in Data and specifically in three Data strands, Big Data, Open Data and Linked Data. Being present at the...

Linked Resource Model for modelling evolving systems (3rd PERICLES Technical Workshop in Grenoble, France)

Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) organized a third technical workshop on using/extending the Linked Resource Model (LRM). The workshop was hosted by the XRCE in Grenoble, and took place on the 27-29 April 2015 (see blogs for the first two meetings). [1] [2] The LRM is an upper level ontology that is being developed within PERICLES, to enable the description of evolving digital ecosystems. Versions of the LRM that could...

The Wednesday afternoon focussed on long-term and large-scale data storage design challenges and featured...

The Entity Registry and Model Repository (ERMR)

A central objective of the PERICLES project is to develop and implement new ways of managing the digital assets in evolving ecosystem, across different technologies and software infrastructures, in order to promote long-term sustainability of collections and to foster collaborative research on shared data. In this brave new world, greater focus is now being laid on the much larger challenges of exploiting big data and how to...

Space Science Data Portal

In this blog post we introduce the Space Science Data Portal, an application developed in the context of PERICLES to fit a preservation system in the workflow of the Belgian User Support and Operations Centre (B.USOC) with a particular focus on the SOLAR experiment that is operated by B.USOC. This case study prototype spawned from PERICLES Work Package (WP) 6 , which aims at producing technologies for demonstrating workflows and...

The Digital Ecosystem Model

We are pleased to introduce the Digital Ecosystem Model (DEM), which has been developed by project partner University of Goettingen in the framework of PERICLES’ integrated approach to model-driven preservation. The DEM is based on the Linked Resource Model ( LRM ) also developed within the PERICLES project. In contrast to the very high level of abstraction of the LRM, the DEM represents a middle layer ontology on the way to...

An introduction to the Entity Registry Model Repository (ERMR)

In this video we introduce the Entity Registry Model Repository (ERMR), a scalable data management system based on open standards that can be used to store data and capture the provenance of data and workflows. The ERMR was developed by project partner University of Liverpool. As a central building block in the architectural PERICLES framework, the ERMR contributes to the change management approach. The ERMR is available on:...

PERICLES Technical Appraisal tool

This is an introduction to the PERICLES Technical Appraisal Tool, which was developed by Simon Waddington and Jun Zhang from King's College London with input from other project partners. The tool has been developed within PERICLES, a four-year Integrated Project (2013-2017) funded by the European Union under its Seventh Framework Programme (ICT Call 9). The PERICLES Technical Appraisal tool will be available by 31 March 2017 under...

PRESERVEWARE - a digital preservation hub

In this video, we introduce PRESERVEWARE an open portal for all IT solutions and relevant research dedicated to managing and preserving digital assets over time. PRESERVEWARE was developed by PERICLES project partner DOTSOFT to offer a sustainable digital preservation hub bridging the gap between research, practice and technology. PRESERVEWARE is a community-led platform free for all to browse, discover and contribute with...

Taking a long-term perspective - Maintaining digital assets by managing their evolving digital ecosystems

As digital content and its related metadata are generated and used across different phases of the information lifecycle, and in a continually evolving digital environment, the concept of a fixed and stable ‘final’ version that needs to be preserved becomes less appropriate. As well as dealing with technological change and obsolescence, long-term sustainability requires us to address changes in context. Such a changing...
