Appel à contributions : Encoding Data for Digital Discovery (ASOR 2017)

A la suite de la première session “Encoding Data for Digital Collaboration” à l’occasion de la réunion annuelle de l’American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR)  2016 à San Antonio, Amy Gansell de l’université St John’s (New York) et Vanessa Juloux (EPHE, PSL) renouvellent cette session pour les trois prochaines années. La prochaine réunion annuelle se tiendra à Boston, du 15 au 18 novembre.

Résumé : Encoding Data for Digital Discovery

Description: Data encoding entails an analog-to-digital conversion in which the characteristics of an object, text, image, or archaeological site can be represented in a specialized format for computer handling. Once encoded, data can be stored, sorted, and analyzed through a variety of computer-based techniques ranging from specialized data-mining algorithms to user-friendly mobile apps. Especially when using linked open data, researchers around the world can collaborate on the collection, encoding, and analysis of data. A single encoded corpus could be analyzed concurrently by multiple projects, and encoded data can be linked across corpuses to facilitate broader, potentially interdisciplinary, studies.

This three-year session offers a venue for the presentation of methodologies, projects, and discoveries based on encoding or encoded data. We describe and demonstrate a wide spectrum of research that will include studies of stratigraphy, object typologies, provenance, cultural heritage, epigraphy, e-philology, and prosopography. Ultimately we will show the value of cyber-research as a powerful resource for revealing otherwise imperceptible information about ancient Near Eastern time. We welcome art historians, historians, epigraphers, philologists, anthropologists, and archaeologists, including prehistorians, Bible scholars, Hittitologists, Egyptologists, Aegeanists, and Byzantinists. This session will inspire new networks and designs for digital collaboration.

DiXiT Convention: Technology, Software, Standards for the Digital Scholarly Edition

Convention DiXiT, une réunion informelle autour de l’édition scientifique numérique : appel à contribution

The DiXiT project is an Initial Training Network funded under the European Commission’s Marie-Curie scheme. In the project a number of high-profile European universities and research institutions work together in training a new generation of digital scholarly editors.

The Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands is organizing the first of DiXiT’s three conventions, September 16-18 2015 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The convention will be an informal meeting where the DiXiT research fellows will present their first results in interactive sessions. We anticipate a lively get-together bristling with new ideas, and we hope that many of those working in the field of scholarly editing and digital humanities will gather here.

SWIB15, conférence sur le web sémantique : appel à contribution

SWIB15, conférence sur le web sémantique : appel à contribution

The SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries, German: “Semantic Web in Bibliotheken”) is an annual conference focusing on Semantic Web and Linked Open Data (LOD) in libraries and related organisations. It is held in Germany, by turns in the Cologne region and Hamburg. The topics of talks and workshops at SWIB revolve around opening data, linking data and creating tools and software for LOD production scenarios. These areas of focus are supplemented by presentations of research projects in applied sciences, industry applications, and LOD activities in other areas. SWIB mainly targets IT staff, developers, librarians and researchers.
