The future of digital communication begins here!

These days, those who don't communicate digitally simply aren't noticed. The result: More and more content has to be edited for a wide variety of devices in the shortest possible time - information management is increasing dramatically. To ensure that companies and organisations keep afloat in everyday life, the QURATOR project is working on an innovative approach: Curation technologies based on artificial intelligence support knowledge workers, media managers and business strategists in enriching and structuring digital content with machine-readable data and using it profitably.

At the conference, fields of application for various industries and areas such as media, cultural heritage, healthcare, logistics, energy and industry will be presented. In addition, you can work together with QURATOR experts in workshops to develop concrete use cases - for storytelling and exhibition curating, risk monitoring, process and knowledge management, personalised medicine and other promising fields of application.

Registration is open!

Two days, one goal - Program


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, use cases will be developed specifically for the industry, media, culture and health sectors. 

Major focus areas include

  • Management of Digitally Curated and Sematically Expressive Information and Knowledge
  • AI-based / Semantic Large Scale and Complex Information and Content Analysis
  • Applications, Evaluations and Experiences of applying Digital Curation Technologies, Standards and Tools

Call for Papers (closed)

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.


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.


Be part of the QURATOR 2020 – Conference on Digital Curation Technologies

The conference will take place on two days from 20-21 January 2020. The conference will take place at the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS). We look forward to welcoming you to the conference.
