*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. 

Submission Details 
Submitted abstracts of papers for oral or demo presentations should consist of 1500-2000 words. Abstracts will be submitted electronically using the conference tool ConfTool. Further detail will be given in the second call for paper. 

The accepted papers will be published as electronically available workshop proceedings. 

Invited Speaker 
Eric Nyburg (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh), title to be announced

Theatre Library Association – Working Session -- Call for Panelists

2012 Annual Conference of the American Society for Theatre Research –
Theatre Library Association

Nashville, Tennessee, November 1-4, 2012


The performing arts have had a long, distinguished tradition of
practice, recently enhanced by creative use of emerging technologies.
Diverse collections representing print, electronic, multimedia, visual
resources, and ephemera support our research. While Digital Humanities
is currently a frequently discussed topic, how does this affect
libraries, archives, museums, teaching and learning, and new
scholarship in the performing arts?

We invite panelists to respond to the following questions:

·         How should we define or approach Digital Humanities for the
performing arts?

·         How can innovative application of Digital Humanities support
teaching and learning of performing arts and cultural history?

·         How do librarians, archivists, and curators promote
productive, collaborative relationships with scholars, researchers,
and students?

·         How should libraries and archives adjust traditional
practices of curation and access?

·         How can libraries, museums, and archives consider and
respond to shifts in scholarship to remain relevant?

·         How are we reimagining the library and archive?

·         How can we apply new developments in arts technologies to
reinvent research and scholarship?

·         How will emerging technologies impact existing publishing models?

·         How should we educate future professional librarians and
archivists in Digital Humanities: technologies, applications, teaching
and learning requisites?

·         What kind of information technology skill sets should we
develop to adapt to these transformations?

Please submit a 200-word statement in response to one (or more) of the
above questions by April 15th to:

Nancy Friedland, Chair, Conference Planning and Vice President,

        Subject: Workshop on data modeling in the humanities: join the virtual audience

Please join us virtually for Knowledge Organization and Data Modeling  
in the Humanities
March 14-16, Brown University

A workshop co-sponsored by:
Center for Digital Editions, University of Würzburg
Center for Digital Scholarship, Brown University
Women Writers Project, Brown University

With generous funding from
National Endowment for the Humanities
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft
Brown University Library

The goal of this workshop is to foster a more expert, synthetic and  
interdisciplinary discussion of the information models that underlie  
the common tools and technologies of digital humanities research and  
structure our representations of the fundamental materials of digital  
scholarship. The workshop brings together invited participants from  
Europe and the US for a program of presentations, case studies,  
panels, and discussion. You can see the full schedule here:


Assuming that all goes well, the event will be videotaped and streamed  
live here:


and you can also follow the twitter stream via the hashtag #kodm. We  
welcome questions and comments from virtual participants, either via  
twitter or to datasymposium at gmail.com.

Following the workshop, we will be publishing a white paper with a  
record of the presentations and discussion, and papers will also be  
published as a special journal issue.

Best wishes, Julia and Fotis
