== CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ==
= Interedition 12th Bootcamp, 15-18 July 2012, Hamburg =

Interedition (http://www.interedition.eu) invites all interested scholars
and hackers to participate in the upcoming Bootcamp, to be held alongside
the DH2012 conference in Hamburg (http://www.dh2012.uni-hamburg.de/).

Interedition is raising the awareness of the importance of interoperability
as a major driver for sustainability for tools and data in the field of
digital scholarship.  This activity takes two forms: firstly, meetings in
which researchers in digital scholarship can network their knowledge of
tools and the possibilities for their interoperability; secondly, the
development of proof-of-concept implementations of interoperable tools.

The focus of this bootcamp is on tools and practices related to "digital
collaboration" in all its forms. Topics and problems that could be
addressed are (but certainly have not be limited to):

* real time multi-user resource editing (like in Google Docs)
* division of tasks and labour in user groups
* exchange of data between different tools applied by users
* sharing copyright protected data between users
* how do users share data but keep it identifiable as their intellectual
property?
* tools for collaborative research
* tools for crowdsourcing (e.g. for text transcription)
* tools, processes, and methods for collaborative development within the
  Interedition community

The last point will be a focus of discussion as well as coding over the
course of the bootcamp. Interedition has spent the four years of its tenure
as a COST action advocating sustainable solutions for the development of
digital tools; as we move into the next phase of our existence as an
open-source development community, we will discuss and implement the
infrastructure we need to sustain the community itself.

REGISTRATION
Participation in the bootcamp is free of charge, and is open to any
interested participant subject to space constraint. If you wish to
participate, please send a short summary of your background and current
work (no more than 150 words) to bootcamp at interedition.eu. Preferably also
state the topics you'd like to work on during the bootcamp.

Digital Classicist & Institute of Classical Studies Seminar 2012

Court Room, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU

Angeliki Chrysanthi (Southampton)
A visitor-sourced methodology for the interpretation of archaeological sites

ALL WELCOME

This paper investigates movement and behaviour patterns of visitors to 
archaeological sites as a way of informing interpretive planning. A 
critical point was the development of a hybrid methodology for 
collecting and assessing data on movement around sites. I will 
demonstrate the methodology developed at the archaeological site of 
Gournia in Greece. Recognised forms of observation and the collection of 
qualitative data, and technologies such as GPS body tracking, 
geo-tagging and GIS applications were employed. The interpretation of 
the processed data provided better insight and an overview of the site’s 
affordances for movement and revealed the site's 'hot spots' according 
to visitors’ assessment.
	
The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
