Dear HUMANIST readers,

Here is good news for everyone who is considering to submit a late-breaking
proposal for the TEI members meeting 2010 in Zadar, Croatia (Nov. 8 to 14):

We now started to accept proposals at the TEI conference management tool[1].
The official closing date for this is September 30th, 2010.

Late-breaking proposals are screened by the Programme Committee and do not
undergo the peer-review process of the regular submissions, thus also do not
qualify for automatic consideration for the conference volume.  More
information about the conference is at [2] , the call for late-breaking
proposals is at [3].

There is an excellent slate of workshops on offer[4] for this year's
conference, for which the early bird rate offering discounts of up to 20% is
available[5] until September 8th.  Yet another good reason to consider
coming to Zadar this year and catch up with what is going on in the text
encoding community!

All the best,

Christian Wittern
Chair, TEI MM2010 International Programme Committee

Workshop: uptake of e-Infrastructure services in the arts and humanities
September 5th, 2010, 1-4.45 DRHA Conference, Brunel University
Organizers: Rob Procter, University of Manchester, Lorna Hughes, King's College London


What do arts and humanities researchers want from e-Infrastructure services? What services and resources make up the e-Infrastructure for the arts and humanities? How are these services accessed and used by researchers across the disciplines? How are they transforming the research practice, and enabling new forms of scholarship? What are the barriers to using these services in the arts and humanities, and how might these be addressed? If academic research is to build on the foundations of the emerging e-Infrastructure, it is essential to understand potential barriers to wider adoption and uptake of these services, and to develop strategies to address them.

The JISC recently funded the project "Enabling uptake of e-Infrastructure services" (part of its Community Engagement strand) to investigate barriers to uptake of e-Infrastructure services in the UK. The project has now concluded, and a final report and other materials are now available. This workshop will discuss the findings of the project with a selected group of arts and humanities researchers and practitioners to discuss the impact of these findings on shaping future policy for research support. The workshop will specifically focus on issues of adoption of e-Infrastructure, and use of related support services, for research in the arts. It will be an opportunity to discuss strategies for increasing engagement with, and adoption of, e-infrastructure services in the UK, and to frame the findings of the project within the way that researchers see their practice and the role that advanced information technologies play in their work. At the same time, we wish to provide service providers, and funders, with a sound grasp of the issues.

Who should attend?

Researchers, IT service providers, and those planning and implementing computing for the arts and humanities. We particularly welcome the participation of early career researchers, and postgraduates. This event will discuss the broader impact of the e-Uptake findings for the arts, and stimulate debate on what should happen next.


There is no charge to attend the workshop, but you must register. Please send e-mail to anna.ashton at kcl.ac.uk<mailto:anna.ashton at kcl.ac.uk> to register.

The Semantic Web is currently one of the most interesting and
ambitious challenges that the scientific and technological community
is facing. While great progresses have been made in terms of
consolidation of base philosophy and infrastructure, new issues,
technologies, and tools are emerging.

These issues include creating, presenting and managing Semantic Web
content, making semantics explicit in order to automatically integrate
data from different sources, and to search for information based on
its meaning rather than its syntactic form.

        Subject: Lecture by Curtis Wong at the Science Gallery, TCD 24 August

Tales from the Archive - 20 years on the bleeding edge of technology in service of Storytelling and Learning - Curtis Wong Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin, 1830-2000 Tuesday 24thAugust.

The application of interactive media for learning has been one of the more compelling but elusive goals for technology since the early days of multimedia. In this talk Curtis Wong will focus on the evolution of "ECR" information architecture for learning gleaned from twenty years of developing interactive educational content across multiple generations of media formats including interactive laserdiscs, CD-ROMs, enhanced digital television, broadband enhanced television, Websites and Web service applications.

Curtis Wong is a Principal Researcher in Microsoft Research focusing on interaction, media, visualization, gaming and storytelling. Curtis and his collaborators have built advanced prototypes which have influenced Microsoft products.
