The workshop will cover a wide range of topics. On day one the expectations
of eHumanities projects on infrastructures will be discussed and the current
state of the CLARIN-D project and infrastructure will be presented. After
that we will report on the work of the CLARIN-D discipline-specific working
groups and especially on the curation projects those groups are currently
working on.

The second day is dedicated to CLARIN-D democases. Several usage scenarios

ESU "Culture & Technology", 23 - 31 July 2012
University of Leipzig - http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/

We are happy to announce that registration for the European Summer School
„Culture & Technology” will open the 16th of April.

Supported by the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing the
Summer School will take place at Leipzig University, Germany, from the 23rd
to the 31st of July 2012.

The Summer School is directed at 60-75 participants from all over Europe and
beyond. Students in their final year, graduates, postgraduates, doctoral
students, and post docs from the Humanities, Engineering and Computer
Sciences, as well as academics, librarians and technical assistants who are
involved in the theoretical, experimental or practical application of
computational methods in the various areas of the Humanities, in libraries
or archives, or wish to do so are its target audience.

The Summer School aims to provide a stimulating environment for discussing,
learning and advancing knowledge and skills in the application of computer
technologies to the Arts and Humanities, in libraries, archives, and similar
fields. The Summer School seeks to integrate these activities into the
broader context of the Digital Humanities, where questions about the
consequences and implications of the application of computational methods
and tools to cultural artefacts of all kinds are asked. It further aims to
provide insights into the complexity of humanistic data and the challenges
the Humanities present for computer science and engineering and their
further development.

The Summer School takes place across 9 whole days. The intensive programme
consists of workshops, daily public lectures, regular project presentations
and poster sessions. The public lectures will seek to handle questions posed
by the development of Virtual Research Infrastructures for the Humanities
from the perspective of the Humanities, their own ways of working and their
specific types of data. The workshop programme will be composed of  5 to 7
thematic strands. At the moment of writing the following workshops are being
planned:

* Computing Methods applied to DH: XML Markup and Document Structuring* Stylometry
* Query in Text Corpora
* Art history and the critical analysis of corpora
* Interdisciplinary approaches to the study
of multimodal human-human / human-machine communication
* TextGrid
* Project Management
Each workshop consists of a total of 15 sessions
or 30 week-hours. The number of participants in
each workshop is limited to 15.

Information on how to apply for a place in one of
the workshops can be found at:
http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/.

Preference will be given to young scholars of the Humanities who are
planning, or are already involved with, a technology-based research project
and who submit a qualified project description. Young scholars of
Engineering and Computer Sciences are expected to describe their
specialities and interests in such a way that also non-specialists can
follow, and to support what they hope to learn from the summer school with
good arguments.

The Summer School will feature also two round table discussions focusing on
Virtual Research Infrastructures which serve the Digital Humanities, and on
Digital Humanities Summer Schools.

All questions regarding the programme of the Summer School, the selection of
the participants as well as the selection of projects for eventual
publication are handled by the international scientific committee of the
European Summer School composed of:

·       Jean Anderson, University of Glasgow (Great Britain)
·       Alex Bia, Universidad Miguel Hernández in Elche (Spain)
·       Dino Buzzetti, Università di Bologna (Italy)
·       Elisabeth Burr, Universität Leipzig (Germany)
·       Laszlo Hunyadi, University of Debrecen (Hungary)
·       Jan Rybicki, Uniwersytet Jagiellonski, Kraków (Poland)
·       Corinne Welger-Barboza, Université Paris 1 – Panthéon-Sorbonne (France)

For important dates and other relevant
information please consult the Web-Portal of the
European Summer School “Culture & Technology”:

which will be continually updated and integrated
with more information as soon as it becomes available.

About the event

This event is organized by the research programme in digital collections 
at the National Library of Wales. Leading figures from the UK digital 
humanities community will address some of the major challenges in the 
use of digital humanities approaches to effect ‘digital transformations’ 
across the disciplines in the arts and humanities. The event will be a 
fora to discuss some of the challenges and opportunities in the digital 
humanities, and to discuss the new types of collaborations across 
disciplines and organisations that are emerging, in the context of the 
development of a collaborative Welsh digital humanities initiative.

There is no charge to attend the event, but registration is essential by 
e-mailing lorna.hughes at llgc.org.uk

        Subject: Workshop on Service Oriented Architectures for the Humanities


*Final Call for Papers: Submission Deadline for Abstracts -- April 23, 2012*

Service‐oriented Architectures (SOAs) for the Humanities: Solutions and
Impacts

Joint CLARIN-D/DARIAH Workshop at Digital Humanities Conference 2012


Motivation

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.
