        Subject: Programme of the Digital Classicist Seminar Berlin 2015/16

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/seminar2015> and at the bottom of
this email.

The seminar series will start on Oct. 13 with a talk on "Thematic features
for intertextual analysis" by Chris Forstall and Lavinia Galli Milić. This
year's keynote lecture, entitled "Digital Philology, World Literature, and
sustainable Global Culture", will be given by Prof. Gregory Crane on Oct.
27 in the Wiegandhaus of the DAI.

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 <

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 19.04.2016 in the TOPOI building Dahlem.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

* open/public knowledge: mutual benefit for academia & society
* social editing, crowdsourcing, citizen science
* issues of rights and ethics related to scholarly editions
* scholarly curation and usage of cultural heritage data
* museums, libraries & archives as data providers for the edition
* dissemination, sustainability and addressability of digital heritage assets
* publishing the edition and the role of publishers
* editors and the job market: career prospects
* and others

We encourage exploratory papers and posters.

The conference will be preceded by a day dedicated to workshops on:

* Publishing Models for Digital Scholarly Editions
* Aggregation of Digital Cultural Content and Metadata Mapping
* XML-Free Scholarly Editing

In the case of papers, speakers will be given 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.
