Complexities of project logistics
A half-day workshop at the joint DiXiT-ESTS conference, Antwerp, October 5 - 7, 2016.
Please distribute widely
Typically, editorial projects - digital or non-digital - get funding for
a limited time span, and that time span is usually not sufficient to
edit and publish the source or body of sources that the project set out
to publish. Often, more funding will be sought, but, as technology and
time have moved on, and as one can't reasonably just repeat the first
grant application, the focus of a follow-up project will be slightly
different. In a third step, one may ask for a neighbouring source
collection to be included in the project, or a new tool added to the
collection, dependent on what funders at that moment in time seem
willing to support.
Projects may end up with multiple collections and datasets, digitized
according to multiple standards using multiple (sometimes obsolete)
technologies. Some may have started out on paper, and have ridden the
waves of databases, HTML, CD-ROM, XML, mass digitisation approaches and
Linked open data. Even projects that have consistently worked within a
TEI framework may have had to ingest documents that use different TEI
dialects. These technological complexities may be increased by
constraints in overall planning and everyday workflow, including time
and budget management, especially if there are cross-institutional
collaborations, interdependencies on deliverables, strict deadlines,
staff mobility etc.
Huygens ING is organising a workshop to discuss these and other
complexities of project logistics. We are asking for papers that address
for example the following issues, preferably from first-hand experience:
- integration of multiple collections digitised or edited according to
- integration of the output of projects from multiple organisations
- project planning and budget management issues in relation to
- archiving and preservation logistics after the funding period in
relation to technological changes
- how to prepare for the inevitability of changes in media, encoding,
work environment or publishing platforms?
- how to avoid having to re-visit the same material?
- how to integrate the output of mass digitisation projects into
The workshop will take place on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, the day before
the main conference. The format of the workshop will consist of four or
five papers (20-minutes) and ample room for discussion. Please send
abstracts of ca. 350 words to peter.boot at huygens.knaw.nl, before May 22,
23:59 GMT. Notification of acceptance will follow before June 1.
Travel bursaries to Antwerp may be available. Please indicate whether
you need a bursary when sending in your abstract. All questions about
the workshop can be directed to Peter Boot, peter.boot at huygens.knaw.nl
The workshop is organized as part of the Digital Scholarly Editions
Initial Training Network (DiXiT), financed under the EU Marie Curie
