At the time of the workshop there was no infrastructural approach to the creation and management of digital information, content residing in the communication systems. However, the amount of investment in this area was already comparable to the money spent on the infrastructure for basic data transport, and this area would be of central interest in future investments. Therefore it was crucial to establish the country-wide technological background for the digitization, the digitized national heritage/culture, and to create the necessary software- and metadata-infrastructure at the level of institutions, communities, the state and the country. With this idea in mind, this workshop intended to provide a deeper understanding in the area of digital content, ontologies, semantic web, name spaces, thesauri, metadata schemes and metadata handling.
