October workshops: Introducing experts to key PERICLES concepts

Last month PERICLES ran two workshops with practitioners and experts in the fields of digital preservation and science data. The full-day events were organised at two different locations, London (15 October) and Brussels (29 October) to introduce specific topics that are key elements within PERICLES research and development. The first workshop entitled 'Model-driven approach to preservation management' was focussed on the...

The EcoBuilder - A Tool to Integrate the Digital Ecosystem Model into the PERICLES picture

We are delighted to announce the release of the Digital Ecosystem Model (DEM) and the EcoBuilder , a Java tool to create DEM instances. The DEM is an ontology for modelling the interwoven relations, dependencies, and interactions of entities in digital ecosystems. Digital ecosystems encompass digital objects and their environments including their technical infrastructure, community relations, policies, and processes. The DEM...

Policy implementation and change management - the PERICLES way

In this blog post we present a practical example of how the PERICLES model-driven approach can help to implement, automate and manage change in a policy. 'Automatic policy application and change management’ was also the focus of one of the 'PERICLES in Practice' sessions at the final project conference ‘Acting on Change: New Approaches and Future Practices in LTDP’ . In this presentation (available on...

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...

From Semantics of Change to Change of Semantics

On 19 May 2015 PERICLES partners ran a half day workshop devoted to the importance of dependency drifts in digital preservation and covered four interlocking research areas: the design of a OWL ontology called LRM (Linked Resource Model) to describe change and dependencies in evolving digital ecosystems on a high level; the application of the LRM to the representation of domain-specific knowledge , and the principle of...

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...

Initial Report on Preservation Ecosystem Management

This document introduces the concept of a digital ecosystem as an approach to conceptualize digital preservation. In comparison to other approaches the digital ecosystem concept explicitly tries to capture dependencies involving non-technical aspects, in addition to technical ones. In the current version the digital ecosystem is considered to consist of entities which are subject to different kinds of change and which...

Semantics for change management

A number of different topics are described in this report, including: extensions to the previous version of the Linked Resource Model (LRM) to take into account dynamic issues and be able to represent change management related concepts; definitions of the different lifecycle stages of resources and corresponding semantics; algorithms that based on the previous notions can perform change propagation within the whole dependency graph...

Linked Resource Model

This document describes the Linked Resource Model (LRM), an OWL ontology that can be used to model dependencies between digital resources and enable the description of evolving digital ecosystems.
