A French-speaking discussion list devoted to digital humanities and the modelling of cultural heritage information


A new discussion list has just been created for all those who are interested in the application of ontologies to the digital humanities field (and who have linguistic skills in French, as this is the language used on that discussion list). 

It is more particularly devoted to the implementation of CIDOC CRM, FRBRoo, LIDO, EDM etc. in French-speaking areas. The idea is to provide French-speaking colleagues with a tool for sharing their experiences, questions, bewilderments etc. about modelling without having first to translate them into English (or pidgin, more often than not). Of course, this does not mean that it is restricted to nativeFrench speakers, and all colleagues who are interested in taking part in this initiative are welcome to subscribe by clicking on this link:


The mailing address is ontologie-patrimoine@services.cnrs.fr

The archive will be available from https://listes.services.cnrs.fr/wws/arc/ontologie-patrimoine

Through this device the experts hope to spread the interest for conceptual modelling in the field of cultural heritage, and to attract new devotees to CIDOC CRM, FRBRoo, EDM and LIDO.

The three owners of the ontologie-patrimoine list are: Katell Briatte, Patrick Le Boeuf, Anne-Violaine Szabados
