Second Call for Papers 

*Service‐oriented Architectures (SOAs) for the Humanities: Solutions and Impacts*
Joint CLARIN-D/DARIAH Workshop at Digital Humanities Conference 2012 


Large research infrastructure projects in the Humanities and Social Sciences such as Bamboo, CLARIN, DARIAH, eAqua, Metanet and Panacea increasingly offer their resources and tools as web applications or web services via the internet. Such web‐based access has a number of crucial advantages over traditional means of service provision via downloadable resources or desktop applications. Since web applications can be invoked from any browser, downloading, installation, and configuration of individual tools on the user's local computer is avoided. 

The paradigm of service‐oriented architectures (SOA) is often used as a possible architecture for bundling web applications and web services. While the use of web services and SOAs is quickly gaining in popularity, there are still a number of open technology and research questions which await more principal answers. The purpose of this joint CLARIN/DARIAH workshop is to provide a forum to address these issues. 

We especially encourage submissions on one or more of the following topics: integration of multimodal resources, standardization of workflows and data formats, interactivity and collaborative research in a SOA, impacts of emerging web technologies on future SOAs, the pros and cons of web-based versus desktop applications.

TextGrid Summit 2012

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the TextGrid Summit 2012 in Darmstadt, Germany on
May 14-15, 2012. On the occasion of the Release of TextGrid 2.0 and the
founding of the "TextGrid - Verein zum nachhaltigen Betrieb einer digitalen
Forschungsinfrastruktur in den Geisteswissenschaften e.V." (TextGrid
Association for the Sustainable Operation of a Digital Infrastructure in the
Humanities), we would like to take this opportunity to take stock of the
accomplishments of the Virtual Research Environment TextGrid. First and
foremost, however, we would like to invite you to actively participate in
determining the future of TextGrid. For this reason, the focus of the Summit
will be on current as well as future users. 

On May 14th, the Summit will begin with a full-day workshop targeted towards
both beginners and advanced users. On May 15th, there will be numerous
presentations and discussion panels about the status quo as well as
perspectives on the future of TextGrid 2.0. The Summit will conclude with the
well-established TextGrid Café, in which all participants have the
opportunity to present posters, to demonstrate their projects and to discuss
and exchange ideas and research interests. We would like to particularly
encourage junior scholars and students with projects to take advantage of
this opportunity. 

The number of participants is limited, so please complete your registration
by 27.04.2012 using the link below. The language of the conference is German.
We look forward to welcoming you in Darmstadt!

The joint project TextGrid aims to support access to and exchange of data in
the arts and humanities by means of modern information technology. Started in
2006, TextGrid offers a web-based platform providing services and tools for
researchers for analysis of text data in various digital archives -
independently of data format, location and software. TextGrid serves as a
virtual research environment for philologists, linguists, musicologists and
art historians as well as for other scholars from the arts and humanities.
