        Subject: Succeed hackathon at UA


On the 10th and 11th of April 2014, the Succeed project will hold a
hackathon at the University of Alicante, whose aim is to look at
improving the state-of-the-art open-source tools for the digitisation of
textual content such as books and newspapers.

Over the two days, developers will work together in small groups to
discuss, roadmap and plan the future development of existing tools. Some
of the topics up for discussion are:

* How to train the Tesseract
http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/wiki/TrainingTesseract3  OCR
engine.
* Creation of XSLT stylesheets for format conversion, e.g. hOCR, PAGE,
FRXML.
* Debian package generation.

The hackathon provides a unique opportunity to meet developers involved in
digitisation projects all over Europe. Participation to the event is FREE OF
CHARGE, but please make sure you reserve

        From: Constance Crompton <constance.crompton at ubc.ca>
        Subject: DHSI at Congress Workshops--Wednesday May 28th to Friday May 30th 2014 at Brock University


Dear all,

We are pleased to announce DHSI at Congress, a series of 2.5-hour workshops for scholars, staff, and students interested in a hands-on introduction to the ways that traditional and digital methods of teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation intersect and enhance one another.  

The DHSI at Congress workshops, which run from Wednesday May 28th to Friday May 30th 2014 at the Canadian Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Brock University in St. Catherines Ontario, are built on the community model of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria. The sessions, facilitated by established scholars and emerging leaders in the field, introduce a wide range of Digital Humanities methods and methodologies from 3D printing to project management, from text analysis to gaming (and more!). We invite interested Congress attendees to register for any and all workshops (descriptions) that engage their interest. 

The sessions will open with a plenary by the Society for Digital Humanities/ Société canadienne des humanités numériques presidents, Susan Brown and Michael Eberle-Sinatra.  The plenary, on May 28th at 11:00-12:00 Thistle Complex 243, is free and open to the public.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and hosts, all spots in the workshops are made available via a tuition scholarship, requiring only the payment of a $25 administrative fee for each session. DHSI at Congress has been developed by the DHSI in partnership with the Society for Digital Humanities/ Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN) and the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS).  The 2014 workshops will be delivered in English, with plans for French-language sessions in coming years.

Please help us spread the good word.
See you at Brock,
Best,
Constance Crompton and Ray Siemens
