Musical Scholarship and the Future of Academic Publishing

An all-day workshop sponsored by the Academic Book of the Future
project.

VENUE AND DATE

Goldsmiths, University of London.

Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre, Whitehead Building. #34 on

10:30 - 18:00, Monday 11 April 2016.

DESCRIPTION

Music publishing and writing about music have always pushed at the
boundaries of publishing technology. And the dissemination of music
documents often challenges our notions of authorial ownership. As
digital technology increasingly dominates the production and
dissemination of scholarly content, including original writing,
critical editions, and creative practice, how will music research rise
to the challenges it poses?

This one day event forms part of the Academic Book of the Future
project and aims to explore how digital production and dissemination
will impact on music publishing and scholarship in the coming
years. Topics covered will include: what will be the best practice for
encoding, dissemination, and preservation of music notation? How will
online collaboration affect the production and ownership of digital
music editions? How can the narrative structures and arguments of
scholarly discourse and of music editions be preserved in a context of
'random access' (from search engines, etc.)? Should scholars and
artists publish their work (writing, editions, compositions) as Open
Access, and should they carry out their drafting processes in public,
making early editions and edit histories available online?

        Subject: APlace4Places pre-conference workshop at DH2016 (Krakow): Call for Participation


Dear colleagues,

You will find below the Call for Participation of our DH2016 pre-conference
workshop in Spatial Humanities endorsed by the GeoHumanities Special
Interest Group.

We hope it will be of your interest. Please spread the word to whom it may
concern!

Best regards,
Carmen Brando (IGN) & Francesca Frontini (ILC-CNR)

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The 1st edition of the workshop APlace4Places, current trends and
challenges in the development and use of geo-historical gazetteers, will
hold in conjunction with the 2016 Digital Humanities conference in Kraków,
Poland. The present workshop aims to investigate the latest developments of
geo-historical gazetteers and their impact in natural language processing
and digital humanities studies. In particular the workshop will deal with
crucial problems concerning the geo-spatial models of representation for
ancient places, and the management of temporal information for geographic
features in general. Current projects concerning the publication of
geo-historical data as Linked Open Data, as well as their exploitation for
annotating and enriching texts will also be discussed, alongside with more
theoretical issues on vocabularies and ontologies. A group of well known
invited scholars will hold 15 minutes presentations, discussing different
and approaches to the topic, ranging from engineering, data models,
standards and publication, corpus annotation models, visualization. An
interactive discussion with workshop attendees about their current projects
as well as a sum up panel will constitute an occasion for the community to
gather together and harmonize efforts. The intended audience are scholars,
data designers, and software developers who are or will be involved in
research projects concerning the spatial humanities.

The workshop is endorsed by The GeoHumanities Special Interest Group (SIG)
of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations.

The workshop will take place on Monday, 11/Jul/2016: 9:30am - 6:00pm. Save
the date!

AVinDH Workshop @ DH2016

"Audiovisual data and digital scholarship:
Towards multimodal literacy"

12 July, 2016 Kraków, Poland

Call for Abstracts
Deadline: May 1, 2016

The Audio Visual material in Digital Humanities <https://avindhsig.wordpress.com/> (AVinDH) Special Interest Group of the Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations http://adho.org/  (ADHO) invites abstracts for proposed presentations for our full-day workshop at DH2016 http://dh2016.adho.org/ in Kraków, Poland. The workshop will address both the challenges of analyzing audiovisual data in digital humanities scholarship, as well as the challenges of educating contemporary digital humanists on how to access, analyze, and disseminate an entire century of information generated with audiovisual media. Other challenges to be addressed concern issues surrounding copyright and sustainability and their impact on the dissemination and long-term access of audiovisual resources.

Workshop organisers invite scholars to present case studies on the following topics:

·         Implementations of tools for computational analysis of AV content

·         Demonstrations of tools that show how  audiovisual media are suited for nonlinear discovery and analysis using multiple modalities

·         Demonstrations of education and training of digital humanists in accessing and analyzing audiovisual media

·         Case studies that have successfully dealt with copyright issues related to audiovisual media, and that demonstrate convincing arguments and strategies

·         Successful arrangements for securing sustainability for the use of audiovisual data for scholarly purposes and examples of ways to preserve and provide long-term access.

Presentations will be based around three themes:

·         Models for training digital humanists in accessing and analyzing audiovisual collections

·         Analysis and discovery models for audiovisual materials

·         Copyright and sustainability

Submissions should include the following:

·         General abstract (should not exceed 500 words)

·         Contact info and a short description of research interests of the authors

·         A suggestion for the session that suits your presentation best

To submit a proposal, please send a docx or pdf file to avindhworkshop at gmail.com<mailto:avindhworkshop at gmail.com> before May 1 2016. Accepted abstracts will be published on the website of the AVinDH Special Interest Group.
