Subject: Request for publication of CfP Towards New Horizons in Digital Humanities: Multimodal Approaches for Visual Media Workshop, 15-16/3/2019 Current advances in Computer Vision have a huge potential for Digital Humanities: There is a growing number of research questions in the humanities which address not only text but also other media—especially visual ones. Yet, quantitative multimodal approaches are still to be considered a desideratum within the Digital Humanities. Although Computer Science has developed promising approaches in the field of Computer Vision, as of now these contemporary methods for image and video analysis have rarely been made accessible for the humanities. In recent years, the Passau Center for eHumanities has devoted itself precisely to address this desideratum. In five pilot projects on various humanities topics, new methods were tested and evaluated to add a multimodal dimension to Digital Humanities. PACE developed, for example, auspicious new tools for analysing visual corpora by means of using neural networks. In the context of the workshop Towards New Horizons in Digital Humanities (15./16.03.2019) we plan to present the results of our work and would like to invite researchers to discuss further methodological innovations, possible multimodal research tools and other state-of-the-art-approaches for visual corpora in the Digital Humanities. The two-day workshop will not only include high-level theoretical discussions to identify methodological problems; we also plan to organize a hackathon to address some of these questions at once. If you are interested in participating, please send a proposal with up to 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by 11 January 2019. We provide accommodation for all accepted participants on 15 March 2019 and can offer partial reimbursement of travel expenses. _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: firstname.lastname@example.org List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
