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, and the value of open access.
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 workshops 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 practitioners.
The workshop is jointly organised by:
