'Digital Encounters and Cultural Exchanges: Medieval Manuscripts Online'
Dr Orietta Da Rold (School of English)

Leicester Digital Humanities Seminars
3 May 2013, 1-2pm
Woodhouse Room, 4th Floor, Charles Wilson Building

In the first of our new series of Digital Humanities seminars Dr Orietta Da Rold will talk about JISC funded 'Manuscripts Online: Written Culture from 1000 to 1500' project.

This paper will look at some current issues in the digital humanities and present the Project 'Manuscripts Online'. The project was inspired by methodologies relating to data mining, data clustering, federated searching which are intertwined with detailed studies of medieval manuscripts, artefacts and texts. The project was founded by JISC, and is of relevance to researchers in the fields of language, literature and history. The project has the ultimate aim to study the written culture of medieval Britain between 1000 and 1500 by pulling together and providing access to written and early printed primary sources in this period for larger data analysis and interpretation.

        Subject: Workshops in Scholarly Annotation and Commentary


Workshops in Scholarly Annotation and Commentary

Workshops in Scholarly Annotation and Commentary
Third Workshop: "Annotating in the Digital Age"
15 April 2013: Room G26, Ground Floor Senate House
http://www.ies.sas.ac.uk/study-training/research-training-summer-schools/scholarly-annotation-and-commentary

While the editing proper of texts – the establishment of a critically emended, reliable and authoritative text on scholarly principles – has been subject to much theoretical and methodological debate from the end of the nineteenth century to the present, the principles and practice of annotation and commentary have received little serious consideration. 

This series seeks to refine methods and strategies for the creation of commentary and annotation, the aim being to bring together scholars, users and practitioners in the field to open the debate towards redefining standards and disseminating “best practice”, and to explore innovative approaches to annotation (e.g., crowd sourcing models for digital projects).

Each session features short presentations by three or four experts, followed by questions and observations from the audience. They will debate whether the digital medium alters the nature of annotation and commentary, discuss whether annotations will remain the privileged domain of the academic editor and scholar, and consider the different dynamic existing between main text and annotation in digital editions.

2.00-2.40pm	Elena Anastasaki (Tübingen): “A Multi-Level Approach to Annotating Literature in the Digital Era”

2.40-3.20pm	Rupert Gatti (Cambridge/Open Book Publishers): "Allowing Reader Commentary and Dialogue within a Digital Textbook: A Case Study"

3.20-3.40pm	Coffee break

3.40-4.20pm	Lanval Monrouzeau (IRI, Centre Pompidou, Paris): "Introduction to the Digital Studies Group and its Work on Indexation"

Ariane Mayer (IRI, Centre Pompidou, Paris): "The Impact of the Digital Medium on Literary Annotation"

4.20-5.00pm	Edward Vanhoutte (Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature, Ghent): “Whose Annotation Is It Anyway?”

The series is led and organized by Dr Iman Javadi of the Institute of English Studies.  Workshops are free to attend and open to anyone with an interest in the subject. To register, please email IESEvents at sas.ac.uk

CALL FOR PAPERS
***************

International ACM Conference on Management of
Emergent Digital EcoSystems
(MEDES 2013)

http://sigappfr.acm.org/MEDES/13/

October 29-31, 2013
                                                         Abbey of
Neumunster, Luxembourg

Description and Objectives
---------------------------

In the world of the Internet, the rapid growth and exponential use of
digital medias leads to the emergence of virtual environments namely
digital ecosystems composed of multiple and independent entities such
as individuals, organizations, services, software and applications
sharing one or several missions and focusing on the interactions and
inter-relationships among them. The digital ecosystem exhibits
self-organizing environments, thanks to the re-combination and
evolution of its "digital components", in which resources provided by
each entity are properly conserved, managed and used. The underlying
resources mainly comprehend data management, innovative services,
computational intelligence and self-organizing platforms. Due to the
multi-disciplinary nature of digital ecosystems and their
characteristics, they are highly complex to study and design. This
also leads to a poor understanding as to how managing resources will
empower digital ecosystems to be innovative and value-creating. The
application of Information Technologies has the potential to enable
the understanding of how entities request resources and ultimately
interact to create benefits and added-values, impacting business
practices and knowledge. These technologies can be improved through
novel techniques, models and methodologies for fields such as data
management, web technologies, networking, security, human-computer
interactions, artificial intelligence, e-services and self-organizing
systems to support the establishment of digital ecosystems and manage
their resources.

The International ACM Conference on Management of Emergent Digital
EcoSystems (MEDES) aims to develop and bring together a diverse
community from academia, research laboratories and industry interested
in exploring the manifold challenges and issues related to resource
management of Digital Ecosystems and how current approaches and
technologies can be
evolved and adapted to this end. The conference seeks related original
research papers, industrial papers and proposals for demonstrations.

Topics
-------
In this call, we solicit original research and technical papers not
published elsewhere. The papers can be theoretical, practical and
application oriented on the following themes (but not limited to):

- Digital Ecosystem Infrastructure
- Green computing
- Emergent Intelligence
- Services
- Trust, Security & Privacy
- Data & Knowledge Management
- Web and Standards
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Networks and Protocols
- Open Source
- Miscellaneous

Paper Submission
----------------

Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format and should be
uploaded using the conference website.
The submitted paper should be at most 8 ACM single-space printed
pages. Papers that fail to comply with length limit will be rejected.
Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After
the preliminary notification date, authors rebut by evidence and
arguments all reviewer inquiries and their comments. Based on the
rebuttal feedback, reviewers notify authors with the final decision.
Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact,
originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation.
Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or
challenging positions on important emergent topics related to Digital
Ecosystems. At least one author should attend the conference to
present the paper.

The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the
ACM Digital Library and DBLP.
