        Subject: Online panel: “Technology & Tradition: A Synergic Approach To Deciphering, Analyzing And Annotating Epigraphic Writings”


Dear colleagues,

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 30th of September 2014, at the École Normale Supérieure of Paris, the International Conference on Information Technologies for Epigraphy and Digital Cultural Heritage in the Ancient World, organized by the EAGLE project(#eagle2014) will host the panel:

“Technology & Tradition: A Synergic Approach To Deciphering, Analyzing And Annotating Epigraphic Writings”

I do consider those aspects also as research in Digital Humanities and would be happy to discuss also with the Digital Humanities community.

In order to offer a wide access to this discussion, panelists have already started their dialogue online and invite all person who might be interested - and especially those who might not be able to participate tomorrow - to ask their questions and share their point of view following this link:

http://eer.hypotheses.org/technology-tradition-a-synergic-approach-to-deciphering-analyzing-and-annotating-epigraphic-writings

Panelists hope to read many questions of yours and will do their best to answer them both on and off line.

All the best,

        Subject: Chicago DHCS Colloquium  registration and free TEI workshop registration


Dear Colleague (and with the usual apologies for cross-posting),

We now have a simple procedure for the Chicago DHCS Colloquium registration. You'll find it at http://dhcs.northwestern.edu/registration/

Registration is free. If you're planning to attend, please register soon. It makes it easier to plan for the event.

This year's DHCS colloquium gives you  free access to several workshop sponsored by the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and offered on Saturday, October 25. All of them have an evangelizing mission, and novices are especially welcome. There is also a workshop on machine learning for the computational humanities. This is not a TEI topic, but it also targets an audience of people who want to find out more about something that may be largely news to them.

For detailed descriptions of the workshops and registration procedures, consult http://tei.northwestern.edu/workshops/. Applications will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis, and it will be in your interest to register early.

Here are the workshop titles and times:

Friday afternoon: Machine Learning for the Computational Humanities (David Bamman, Carnegie Mellon)

Saturday morning: Using and Customizing  TEI Boilerplate (John Walsh, Indiana)

Saturday, all day: TAPAS: TEI Archiving Publishing and Access Service (Syd Bauman, Benjamin Doyle, Julia Flanders, Northeastern University)

Saturday, all day: An Introduction to TEI's ODD: One Document Does it All (Lou Burnard, Sebastian Rahtz, Oxford)

Saturday, all day: The Music Encoding Initiative: A One-Day Survey (Perry Roland (Virginia), Laurent Pugin, Répertoire International des Sources Musicales (RISM))

At https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lHyRjiSSHjDXJ9uRwHAuOlXU71nHGGaGZOWjKVZjXts/edit#gid=1966830622
you will find a joint summary schedule of the TEI and DHCS events.  If you are coming to the DHCS Colloquium you will also be a welcome guest  at the TEI events scheduled for Thursday, October 23.

With best wishes and hoping to see many of you later this month
