Join us at the 6th Annual Digital Pedagogy Institute (DPI) Conference! 

July 31 - August 1, 2019 at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo,
Ontario, Canada. 

Attended by faculty, researchers, graduate students, educational
developers, librarians, and many other university personnel, this
two-day conference includes keynote addresses, presentations, workshops,
and digital tool training that focus on the innovative use of digital
technologies to enhance and transform undergraduate and graduate teaching. 


    digital pedagogy best practices in STEM, the Humanities, or Social
    digital pedagogy collaborations between faculty, educational
     developers, librarians, and/or graduate/undergraduate students;
    digital pedagogy collaborations with organizations outside the academy;
    the state of digital pedagogy education in higher education;
    digital pedagogy case studies, including course and assignment
    innovative new uses for traditional digital pedagogy tools.

Dear all,

Especially those of you who are interested in inscriptions and papyri
and their digital editing. The project PapyGreek and Foundation
Institutum Romanum Finlandiae organise an EpiDoc-workshop in Helsinki.
In addition to EpiDoc, we will practise morphosyntactic annotation. More
details from the link below.


Best wishes,

25th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed
Computing (Euro-Par 2019)
Topic 14: Algorithms and Systems for Digital Humanities

August 26–30, 2019
Göttingen, Germany



The Digital Humanities aims to advance the effective and efficient use
of computational methods and digital data as tools for original research
questions in the humanities. In recent years, projects such as DARIAH,
CLARIN and CESSDA have pushed technologies and services that support the
FAIR principles of Open Science (data registries, identifier services,
metadata specifications) as well as tools that support the domain
scientists. Many of these tools and services are hosted at computing
centers, aim to address the huge heterogeneity of data and tasks, and
aim to increase access to and reuse of research data via collaboration
and crowdsourcing. Based on these experiences, the DH track at the
EuroPar-2019 casts its sights on the years to come and how the
relationship between DH and computing centers will evolve in the near
future. To this end, we solicit contributions on the following topics.


   * Applications of computing center and cloud resources in Digital
Humanities projects

   * Applications of large-scale batch computing for Digital Humanities
research questions on HPC resources

   * Applications of small-scale on-demand computational resources and
serverless computing for Digital Humanities Applications of hosting of
interactive services and tools for the Digital Humanities in the cloud
or at computing centers

   * Automatically locating and processing distributed data for Digital
Humanities use cases

   * Digital Humanities applications with special hardware requirements
that can be provided by a computing center (GPUs, server-side VR
rendering, etc.)

   * Applications of MPI clusters in the Digital Humanities

   * Growth of data in the Digital Humanities (text, images, videos, 3D
models, multi-modal data, etc.)

   * Management of heterogeneous discipline- and task-specific metadata

   * Sustainability models for research software and online services in
the Digital Humanities

   * Obstacles in the technical infrastructures that affect Digital
Humanities (may range from disk/network latency issues over memory
capacities, authentication and authorization, to accounting)
