Registration Information:


Due to the current pandemic restriction and health and safety concerns,
the Information Visualisation IV2020 conference will run entirely
online. The Vienna and Melbourne Conferences are now merged and will
run from 7^th – 11^th September 2020, over 5 days to allow for the
time-zone differences. However, delegates can attend all sessions.
Also, due to cost-savings, the conference fee has been reduced, but
papers will be published by the CPS of IEEE, as before and some
selected papers with extension will be considered for special issue
journal publication and edited book.


Call for Papers, Poster, Videos, Industry Case Studies and Participation
Deadline for paper submission 15 July 2020

The Humanities has enjoyed a renaissance in the last two decades. This
has been largely facilitated by the acceptance of digital media as a
tool for the critical analysis of scholarly works. This new field, the
Digital Humanities, includes applied and theoretical use of digital
media. Increasingly, large collections of knowledge are being
investigated using digital tools. These tools assist in visualising the
knowledge contained in ways that expose new meanings and interpretations
of scholarly knowledge.

Our host, the International Information Visualisation Conference,
provides a uniquely propitious environment for a Digital Humanities
symposium. With other symposia spanning Information Visualisation Theory
& Practice to Visualisation in Software Engineering, attendees of the
Digital Humanities Knowledge Visualisation are well placed to make
serendipitous connections with technologists in similar fields.

This symposium seeks short and long papers on original and unpublished
work addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

Culture and Heritage Knowledge Visualisation
Art and Design
Visualization techniques for text corpora
Virtual and built environments
Interactive systems
Infographic design and its associated process
Data mining in the humanities
Information design and modelling
Social Networks
Network graph visualisation of historical precedents
Digital media enabled humanities research
Digital media assisted linguistics research
The digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital
games, and related areas

        Subject: Seminar: Extracting the terminology of the Roman law of “ownership” from Justinian’s Digest

Digital Classicist London Seminar 2020

Marton Ribary (Surrey) and Barbara McGillivray (Alan Turing Institute &
Cambridge): "The thing is mine": Extracting the terminology of the Roman law of
ownership from Justinian's Digest

Friday, Jun 19, 2020, 16:30 UK time
Institute of Classical Studies, University of London
Online seminar, streamed live and archived at: https://youtu.be/cG8sRps1s6Q

Our paper investigates the evolution of the concept of 'ownership' in Roman law
using computational semantic methods. The work is based on a relational database
of Justinian's Digest (533 CE) arranging more than twenty thousand text units
excerpted from hundreds of otherwise lost legal works in a Python environment
and shared on GitHub (mribary/pyDigest). We present a thematic tree-map of Roman
law based on hierarchical clustering of sections. We use computational methods
for terminology extraction and distributional semantic word representations to
show how the semantic landscape associated with ownership changed over time.
