        Subject: Linking Past People: A Prosopography Hackathon at the Uni of Vienna (Feb 13-15, 2019) - Open Call For Participants

Dear Colleagues,

Please let me call your attention on our second hackathon 
at the DH Uni Wien, this time focusing on prosopography.

A number of technical challenges remain in the world of 
prosopography.  How best to link between online databases 
and share information between them, whether underlying systems 
can be made more generic, and what models and linkages to use within 
any given database system are all current concerns. The Uni Vienna 
Digital Humanities team are hosting this three day hackathon to look 
at these and other current issues in prosopography, bringing together 
a range of programmers and prosopographers with the intention of taking 
steps towards developing technical solutions to these issues.

We are inviting all interested digital humanists with an inclination for 
coding to partake in this event in Vienna, which will run from Feb 13 to 
Feb 15 with a meal for participants on the 15th. We are able to offer 
small bursaries to offset traveling costs.

If you would like to attend, please send a message to 
james.baillie@univie.ac.at with 'Prosopography Hackathon' in the subject 
by 31 December 2018

Please see more details in the attachment.

Best regards,
