Autumn Workshop: Realising the Opportunities of Digital Humanities
Date: Tuesday 23 October - Thursday 25 October 2012
Venue: Dublin and Maynooth, Ireland
"Realising the Opportunities of Digital Humanities"
A workshop jointly organised by:
Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI)
Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI)
Digital Humanities Observatory (DHO)
Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH-EU)
The focus of this event is to engage academia, industry, cultural
institutions and public bodies to identify the key research challenges in
digital humanities, and to further build the academic-industry partnerships
that will enable adoption of digital humanities skills, technologies and
tools. This focus will extend to the innovative use of digital humanities
technologies in the public sector demonstrating social benefit, such as the
digitisation of the Irish census and the use of open linked public data.
This is the first in a series of workshops targeting the industry-academic
interface for identifying and realising the opportunities of the digital
humanities. The event is jointly organised by the two major digital
humanities national infrastructures (the DRI and the DHO), and the largest
semantic web research Institute (DERI), together with a large-scale European
digital infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH).
During the three days, participants will expand their skills through a series
of digital labs, lectures and masterclasses lead by subject matter experts,
in the areas of data visualisation and in the application of linked data to
leverage the semantic web for scholarly humanities research. This workshop
will combine a day of hands-on practical application with master classes and
lectures and a day long symposium drawing together academic and industry
Themes will include:
        * Data Visualisation and Data Analytics for Digital Humanities
        * Leveraging Linked Data and the Semantic Web for Scholarly Research
        * IP and Licensing .... 'What You Can and Can't Do With Data'
        * Infrastructure and Data Modelling
This event will take place in Dublin and Maynooth from Tuesday 23 October -
Thursday 25 October 2012.
