Darmstadt, 28 February - 4 March 2011
The 6th Interedition on interoperability and light weight infrastructures for digital scholarship will run from 28 February to 4 March 2011. The bootcamp is being organized by a joint group from Technische Universität Darmstadt and the Universität Trier.
The primary objective of the bootcamp is the development of prototypes for interoperable ‘microservice’ tools for text scholarship and digital editions. Much of the work will focus on the first Interedition prototype tool, CollateX, described in more detail below; development on other related tools will also be welcomed. Another important objective is to give developers and early stage researchers an opportunity to meet and share their own projects and experiences with tool interoperability in textual scholarship.
See Darmstadt Bootcamp for more information.

Digital Humanities Observatory and Trinity College Dublin are delighted to announce a five day summer school, ‘From Metadata to Linked Data’, a joint Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS) / COST (Interedition) training school. The Summer School will feature seminars in the morning and hands-on workshops in the afternoon. The week will be dedicated to exploring the theories, methods, and tools to create a technology-enabled, distant approach to reading. Distant reading, a term coined by the Stanford-based literary critic, Franco Moretti, relies on computational methods to generate abstract models to 'read' large textual corpora. In his 2006 article entitled 'What do you do with a Million Books', Greg Crane gave the digital humanities community a shorthand for reading in the modern age. His article points toward a number of exciting possibilities for a paradigm shift in humanities scholarship but realizing this ambition has proven more difficult than theorizing it.
