Hello Willard & fellow humanist readers,

Some of you may be interested in the upcoming workshop on "Statistical
Natural Language Processing and Weighted Automata" with a special focus on
OCR techniques particularly for digital heritage.  I would be grateful if
you could pass the call for papers on to the list.

**Call for Participation**

The second annual European Association for the Digital Humanities 
Symposium (EADH Day) will be held in conjunction with the 3rd 
International Conference of the Association Digital Humanities im 
deutschsprachigen Raum (Digital Humanities in German speaking regions) 
which takes place at the University of Leipzig from the 7th to the 12th 
of March 2016. The main theme of this conference is €œ**Modellierung - 
Vernetzung - Visualisierung. Die Digital Humanities als 
faecheruebergreifendes Forschungsparadigma** (Modelling - Networking - 
Visualisation. Digital Humanities as a transdisciplinary research 
paradigm). The 2nd EADH day will open the evening of the 7th of March 
and continue through the 8th of March until just before the opening of 
DHd 2016.

The objective of EADH days is to raise awareness for DH research 
activities beyond the regional conference context. The format of EADH 
day is designed to facilitate exchange and networking initiatives among 
European DH research communities.

Participants may contribute directly to the EADH Day agenda in two ways:

Through presentations of a 5 minute** lightning talk** featuring either 
recent research developments or key topics of interest to the digital 
humanities community (e.g. *€˜The potential of Linked Data for 
annotating medieval music scores*€™). Participants wishing to present 
lightning talks should provide a two-page abstract of the presentation 
in English which will be made available online prior to the event.

Through the proposition of a **challenge** for participants to address 
during the event related to the themes of:

- Integrating research and teaching
- Integrating different communities
- Integrating the global and the local
- Integrating different scholarly domains

Challenges can be presented in creative ways. Round tables with 
respondents and / or speakers / audience sharing the stage in turns, 
multimedia presentations, short sketches, students's projects, are only 
some of the formats which come to mind.

Challenges should take the form of an open question (e.g. *How do we 
teach Digital Humanities?*€™ *What is the social resonance of 
Digital Humanities?*€™, *What is the contribution of Digital Humanities 
to collective memory and public history€™?* etc.), with one or two 
paragraphs of text justifying their significance.

Proposals need to be submitted via ConfTool  
(https://conftool.pro/dhd2016/). Information in English about the 
submission process ist available at: http://www.dhd2016.de/node/51. 
Lightning talks and challenges will be selected by an EADH panel.

Presentation of a lightning talk or a challenge is not a requirement to 
particpate and anyone may register to attend the event via 

Participation in the 2nd EADH day is free of charge for registered 
participants of DHd 2016. For people who only choose to take part in the
