MODELLING HETEROGENEOUS DATA IN THE DIGITAL HUMANITIES
8- 9 October 2009, university of Hamburg, Germany
http://beta.teuchos.uni-hamburg.de/IT-Workshop

Over the last few years a lot of effort went into collecting digital 
data relating to historical objects (manuscript digitisations, critical 
editions, watermark collections), and into making these available to 
specific scientific communities as well as to a broader public. Despite 
targeted standardisation actions, one of the major problems encountered 
was the heterogeneity of data to be modelled. This heterogeneity often 
steers researchers to local solutions which, in the longer term, are an 
obstacle to the integration of different repositories. Other prevalent 
problems include the impossibility of applying OCR software to 
hand-written texts and the difficulty of applying language technology 
methods and tools that are usually developed with modern languages in mind.
The present workshop aims at discussing these problems and presenting 
solutions, and at bringing together researchers from different areas of 
the Digital Humanities.

We are looking for original contributions describing completed work in 
one of the following areas:
- models for heterogeneous data in repositories
- semantic based information retrieval
- text technology for historical languages
- visualisation of heterogeneous data
- image processing for accessing textual data in manuscripts
- standards for data collection
- digital edition
- user scenarios
Submissions should exceed 10 A4 pages
- Please follow the llncs formatting -style. Formatting templates for 
Word and TEX are given below.
- Submission should be ANONYMOUS. Please pay attention when converting 
to PDF that Author's name are not saved into the file. Please avoid to

- Only PDF files are accepted.
- Submissions should be sent no later than 28th june 2009 (GMT+1) via 
our conference management system under:

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Second Annual Conference
Explorations in Ethnography, Language and Communication: Focus on Data
Friday 11th September 2009, Aston University

This one-day conference will explore the possibilities and problems of employing ethnographically sensitive approaches to language and communication research across a wide range of disciplines and topics (including health, education, social and political processes, culture and identity).

Plenary speakers are Professor Jan Blommaert (Department of Languages, University of Jyvaskyla) and Professor Martyn Hammersley (The Open University).
Conference registrants are also invited to attend additional data-focused interactive workshops on the afternoon of Thursday 10th September (2pm - 5pm). Workshop facilitators include Professor Ben Rampton and Professor Celia Roberts (King’s College London), Dr Adam Lefstein, Dr Jeff Bezemer and Dr Carey Jewitt (Institute of Education University of London) and Dr. Sara Shaw (University College London / The Nuffield Trust).

Registration for the conference is now open. A registration form and further details (including a draft programme and information on travel and accommodation) can be found at http://elc.ioe.ac.uk/aston.html. The one-day conference fee is £35, including a buffet lunch, tea and coffee, with a reduced rate of £15 for students. There will be a charge of £10 for the optional data-focused workshop. Places for the data workshop will be limited so early registration is advised.

For further details and queries, please email explorations09 at googlemail.com.

The conference is organised by Dr. Fiona Copland ( School of Languages and Social Sciences, Aston University ), Dr. Julia Snell (Institute of Education University of London) and Dr. Sara Shaw (Department of Primary Care and Population Health, University College London / The Nuffield Trust).
