MODELLING HETEROGENEOUS DATA IN THE DIGITAL HUMANITIES
8-9 October 2009, University of Hamburg, GERMANY
Over the last few years a lot of effort went into collecting digital data relating to historical objects (manuscript digitisations, critical editions, watermark collections), and into making these available to specific scientific communities as well as to a broader public. Despite targeted standardisation actions, one of the major problems encountered was the heterogeneity of data to be modelled. This heterogeneity often steers researchers to local solutions which, in the longer term, are an obstacle to the integration of different repositories. Other prevalent problems include the imposssibility of applying OCR software to hand-written texts and the difficulty of applying language technology methods and tools that are usually developed with modern languages in mind.
The present workshop aims at addressing these problems, presenting existent solutions, and bringing together researchers from different areas of the Digital Humanities, language technology, image processing and national and international networks like CLARIN, D-SPIN, DARIAH, and at fostering new interdisciplinary projects. It is organised by the Teuchos centre that is creating research infrastructure for Classical Philology.
