Last year we launched a postgrad course on conceptual modelling for cultural heritage at Incipit. It was a great success, so we decided to run it again this year with extended contents. Actually, we are offering an introductory module plus an advanced one, which can be done as separate courses or as a whole.
Like last year, we will be using ConML as a foundation and, also like last year, Charlotte Hug will be helping us a lot!
More information, here (in Spanish).
At Incipit we are seeking the best candidates to incorporate to our scientific software development team.
The top applicants will be guided through a selection process that will conclude with an offer of a 1-year contract, hopefully to be extended depending on results. Benefits will be around 26.700 € per annum. The position will be based on Incipit’s headquarters in beautiful Santiago de Compostela.
More information here in English or Spanish.
We have created a LinkedIn group for Incipit. Feel free to join if you are interested in keeping up to date about events and ennouncements related to Incipit, or if you would like to discuss about cultural heritage research issues.
Cobase is on YouTube!
At Cobase we are launching a series of videos to promote Concept, our online service for construction projects. This is the first one.
I don’t discuss this often in here, but I used to work for The Heritage Laboratory (LaPa), a medium-sized research lab in Santiago de Compostela that was part of a larger institute that, in turn, belongs to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Yes, that is right, I used to. As of today, The Heritage Laboratory exists no more.
The good news is that The Heritage Laboratory has been transformed into a full-fledged institute with its own identity. We have outgrown ourselves out of being a lab within an institute, and we have become one. We are now the Institute of Heritage Sciences, usually abbreviated as Incipit.
This is a time of fast and exciting change with lots of opportunities. If you are interested in knowing more, visit our web site on www.incipit.csic.es or drop me an email anytime.
At work we have just launched a web site for ConML, a simple conceptual modelling language for non-experts in information technologies.

So what, you’ll ask. Well, according to this, 93% of all starting point articles will eventually lead you to the article Philosophy. And, I quote:
The question of why everything goes to philosophy is probably very deep.
My brain hurts.
