I'm helping organize this Digital Humanities workshop in Dublin. Please forward, especially to European groups! (Is there an ELAG mailing list?)
If any of the North American contingent will be in Europe around that time, we'd love to get you involved!
> Date: Tuesday 23 October - Thursday 25 October 2012
> Venue: Dublin and Maynooth, Ireland
> Realising the Opportunities of Digital Humanities
> A workshop jointly organised by:
> Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI)
> Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI)
> Digital Humanities Observatory (DHO)
> Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH-EU)
> The focus of this event is to engage academia, industry, cultural institutions and public bodies to identify the key research challenges in digital humanities, and to further build the academic-industry partnerships that will enable adoption of digital humanities skills, technologies and tools. This focus will extend to the innovative use of digital humanities technologies in the public sector demonstrating social benefit, such as the digitisation of the Irish census and the use of open linked public data.
> This is the first in a series of workshops targeting the industry-academic interface for identifying and realising the opportunities of the digital humanities. The event is jointly organised by the two major digital humanities national infrastructures (the DRI and the DHO), and the largest semantic web research Institute (DERI), together with a large-scale European digital infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH).
> During the three days, participants will expand their skills through a series of digital labs, lectures and masterclasses lead by subject matter experts, in the areas of data visualisation and in the application of linked data to leverage the semantic web for scholarly humanities research. This workshop will combine a day of hands-on practical application with master classes and lectures and a day long symposium drawing together academic and industry practitioners.
> Themes will include:
> • Data Visualisation and Data Analytics for Digital Humanities Scholarship
> • Leveraging Linked Data and the Semantic Web for Scholarly Research
> • IP and Licensing .... 'What You Can and Can't Do With Data'
> • Infrastructure and Data Modelling
> This event will take place in Dublin and Maynooth from Tuesday 23 October - Thursday 25 October 2012.
