CFP: Open Epigraphic Data Unconference

From the CFP:

This one-day workshop, or “unconference,” brings together scholars, historians and data scientists with a shared interest in classical epigraphic data. The event involves no speakers or set programme of presentations, but rather a loose agenda, to be further refined in advance or on the day, which is to use, exploit, transform and “mash-up” with other sources the Open Data recently made available by the Epigraphic Database Heidelberg under a Creative Commons license. Both present and remote participants with programming and data-processing experience, and those with an interest in discussing and planning data manipulation and aggregation at a higher level, are welcomed.

CFP: Metadata and Semantics Research

From the CFP:

The management of the cultural information has to deal with challenges related to (i) metadata modeling, specification, standardization, extraction, evaluation, mapping, integration and effective use, (ii) knowledge representation as conceptualization to provide the context for unambiguously interpreting metadata, and (iii) information integration from different contexts for the provision of integrated access and advanced services to the users.

CFP: Future Past – Researching Archives in the Digital Age

From the CFP:

This conference aims to promote the understanding and collaboration between archivists and researchers; explore challenges posed by digital access to collections, and improve methodologies (e.g. education/training for researchers in what information is available from online catalogues, how archivists can improve catalogue descriptions so researchers can find relevant records more easily and how you can understand the context of records showing up in searches)

CFP: Historia Ludens – Conference on History and Gaming

From the CFP:

This conference follows up on the workshop “Playing with History” that has been held in November 2015 in Huddersfield. Gaming and History is gaining more and more traction, either as means to “gamify” history education or museum experiences, or as computer games as prism into history like the popular History Respawned podcast series (http://www.historyrespawned.com/). Besides discussing gamification or using (computer) games, we also want to explore gaming and playing in a broader historical-cultural sense. Can “playing” be used as category for historical scholarship, maybe alongside other categories such as gender, space or class?

CFP: Current Research in Digital History

From the CFP:

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media invites submissions for the first annual Current Research in Digital History conference. Submissions should offer historical arguments and interpretations rather than showcase digital projects. We anticipate that the format of short presentations will provide an opportunity to make arguments on the basis of ongoing research in larger projects. Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals. Some travel funding is available. Presentations will be peer-reviewed and published in an online publication that accommodates dynamic visualizations and narrative.

CFP: Data Sharing, Holocaust Documentation and the Digital Humanities

From the CFP:

We would like to invite you to participate in the international workshop on” Data Sharing, Holocaust Documentation and the Digital Humanities. Best Practices, Case Studies, Benefits”, to be held in Venice on 29-30 June 2017. Launched in November 2010, the main goal of EHRI is the implementation of a research infrastructure, which enables collaborative work in Holocaust research and documentation. As part of the infrastructure work, EHRI integrates archival metadata across institutional, national and language boundaries, making it searchable and helping researchers to find relationships between archival collections. This context makes the deployment of efficient data collection, sharing, processing and integration technologies and approaches (including semantic technologies) crucial to achieve success in the implementation of the infrastructure.
