Dear Colleagues,

we are delighted to announce that the final programme for this year's
Digital Classicist Seminar Berlin is now online. You can find it at <
http://de.digitalclassicist.org/berlin/seminar2016> and at the bottom of
this email.

The seminar series will start on Oct. 18 with a keynote by Silvia Polla
(TOPOI) entitled "Between Demography and Consumption: Digital and
Quantitative approaches in the Mediterranean Surface Survey".

Seminars take place on Tuesdays (starting at 17:00 c.t.) on a fortnightly
basis at the TOPOI building Dahlem or at the DAI.

We would also like to draw your attention to the possibility for students
to attend the seminar as part of their curriculum. The seminar is now part
of the academic programme of the Freie Universität under the name “Digitale
Methoden in den Altertumswissenschaften” (see the FU’s course catalog <
http://www.fu-berlin.de/vv/de/lv/315967>).

The seminar is recognised with 5 credit points (ECTS): this requires the
attendance of the seminars and a 15 minute poster presentation on one of
the topics covered by the seminar series. The poster presentations can be
either in English or German and will take place after the end of the
seminars on 18.4.2017 in the TOPOI building Dahlem.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Matteo Romanello
on behalf of the organising committee

For the past several years, the Renaissance Knowledge Network (ReKN: http://rekn.itercommunity.org) has sponsored sessions at the ACMRS annual conference exploring the intersection of computational methods and Medieval and Renaissance Studies.  For the 2017 gathering, we invite paper proposals that explore any topic related to the study and teaching of the Middle Ages and Renaissance and its intersection with the digital Humanities, especially those that focus on the general theme of "Paradigm Shifts during the Global Middle Ages and Renaissance."  Please send paper proposals including a title, one paragraph abstract, and brief biographical statement by 15 November 2016 to Ray Siemens (siemens at uvic.ca).
