Eichinger, Scheck (2003), Demonstrator of integration interfaces and EMMOs, © CULTOS 2003.
The integration capabilities of EMMOs rely heavily on existing XML technologies as they are widely adopted along the publishing value chain. As an example, the integration of EMMOs into Macromedia Director, a tool for producing interactive CD-ROMs as well as interactive Web-Content, is shown. The integration tools thereby re-use functionality provided by the CULTOS transformers with respect to the XML export of EMMOs. XML Plug-Ins for Macromedia Director allowed a seamless integration of the EMMO XML structure.

 

Intertextual Cultural Threads

Billiani, Sabine, von Held, Pendlebury, Marin Laak and CULTOS content group (2003),
Demonstrator of Intertextual Cultural Threads, © CULTOS 2003.
The reports from the six teams of thread builders are the reports on individual threads, both completed and projected, that have been provided by the five groups of literary and cultural studies specialists (DLF, IRS, Soton, TAU, and TUB). The first group of reports is followed by the report provided by Klett Verlag of the threads built to test the capacity of the ontology to support threads built for applications in schools and in educational publishing. »» more

Ontology and Knowledge Model

Benari et al. (2003), Proposal for a standard ontology of Intertextuality, © CULTOS 2003.
Apart from all the technological achievements, the CULTOS project has produced a remarkable accomplishment in the field of intertextuality research. We were able to portray and map all possible intertextual relations, (relations between texts), in a model flexible enough to overcome theoretical differences between academics in this field. »» more

Benari, Ben Porat, Behrendt (2002), The CULTOS Ontology,
Knowledge Model of Intertextual Studies, © CULTOS 2002.
This document describes in detail, the Knowledge Model of Intertextual Studies (synonymously referred to as "The CULTOS Ontology") which will be the basis for a multimedia authoring environment that allows the user to combine multimedia presentations with explicit domain-specific knowledge thus leading to hypertextual information spaces enhanced with ontological markup. »» more

Stoye, Benari, Behrendt (2002), The CULTOS Ontology,
Implementation of the Knowledge Model of Intertextual Studies, © CULTOS 2002.
In this document, we present the CULTOS knowledge model emphasizing the implementational aspects. The document should be seen in conjunction with "Knowledge Model of Intertextual Studies" which introduced the major concepts of the ontology of intertextual studies, in the form of a paper model. »» more

Document Model & EMMOs

Schellner, Westermann, Zillner (2003), Final Specification of Emmo Model, © CULTOS 2003.
This document is the second version of the design of Emmos (Enhanced Multimedia Meta Objects). The purpose of this document is to describe the implementation and integration issues of Emmos (Enhanced Multimedia Meta Objects) which are a novel type of structured multimedia meta objects containing expert knowledge and realized in conformance to current and emerging multimedia standards. Thus, the document first introduces the Emmo design and its formalization. Then, the Emmo Algebra, which allows to access and navigate the content stored within an Emmo in manifold ways, will be specified. Finally, the concrete realization of the formal model for the CULTOS project is explained in detail, design decisions are discussed and implementation details are illustrated.
