Ontology-mediated data management in EPNet

Semantic Web technologies are increasingly changing the daily praxis of historical research. Over the last decades, an immense amount of new quantifiable data have been accumulated, and made available in interchangeable digital formats, opening up new possibilities for solving old questions and posing new ones. The talk introduces a framework that eases the access of scholars to historical and cultural data about food production and commercial trade system during the Roman imperial age, currently distributed across different data sources. The approach we will talk about relies on the Ontology-Based Data Access (OBDA) paradigm, where the different datasets are virtually integrated by a conceptual layer (an ontology) that provides to the user a clear point of access and a unified and unambiguous conceptual view. While keeping EPNet as the main protagonist the talk, a short overview of the principles that guide the OBDA approach will be also provided
