In this paper, the experience obtained in the e-government project of Turkey is described, which consisted of three parts: inventorying all services and processes in all governmental agencies; modeling several of the processes identified with the help of Extended Event Driven Process Chain technique; and execution via transforming the model to a Business Process Management tool that allowed business activity monitoring. Due to size of the project, and the limitation of the paper, main focus will be on the inventorying. The paper first discusses the ontology design for Public Services in Turkey and the process of developing the ontology based services inventory management, as the basis for e-Government gateway. Then the discussion follows on how this ontology can establish the basis for the service-based process design and finally the pilot implementation for the selected citizen-centric processes is presented.

On the trajectory of urbanisation in Turkey - An attempt at periodisation
Şengül, Hüseyin Tarık (Liverpool University Press, 2003-05-01)
The main objective of this article is to provide a periodisation of the Turkish urban experience by dividing it into three distinct phases: the urbanisation of the state in the context of nation-state formation; the urbanisation of labour power in the context of rapid migration from rural areas; and finally the urbanisation of capital in the context of globalisation. The article argues that recent trends point to a striking socio-spatial polarisation as well as to fragmentation in the Turkish cities.
Ontology based information extraction on free text radiological reports using natural language processing approach
Soysal, Ergin; Çiçekli, İlyas; Department of Medical Informatics (2010)
This thesis describes an information extraction system that is designed to process free text Turkish radiology reports in order to extract and convert the available information into a structured information model. The system uses natural language processing techniques together with domain ontology in order to transform the verbal descriptions into a target information model, so that they can be used for computational purposes. The developed domain ontology is effectively used in entity recognition and relat...
