Working Group 2 Meeting "Bamboo & TEI & Interedition"
Local organizer: James Cummings (OUCS) Venue: OUCS, Oxford (UK) Dates: Wed 24 - Thur 25 August 2011
Working Group 2 of Interedition is the 'Work Horse' of the project where tools and interoperability models are thought up and actually built in proof of concept. This meeting provides some key developers and architects within Interedtion to come up with shared models for various themes in digital humanities. Many key EU and non-EU textual scholarship projects and knowledge are reprsented around the table (a.o. TextGrid, CLARIN-NL, Juxta, TEI, Huygens, Studia Stemmatologia, eLaborate, etc.). Most of all we're interested to see if there is scope for sharing/founding common models with the US based digital humanities infrastructure project BAMBOO, for which a representative is joining us.
Topics to be addressed:
- Text & annotation models
Given the digital textual scholarship projects represented, can we think of a common architecture for a multi-layered description/interpretation model for text resources?
- Text repositories
What would be a general applicable model for text resource discovery, harvesting, and exchange
- Micro services & orchestration
Interedition coined the idea for light weight web services as discrete steps in larger exchangeable scholarly digital workflows. Bamboo came up with similar ideas. What would be a common feasible model for servicing, discovery, and orchestration?
- Collation tools and collation encoding
TEI has of yet no generic model for representing collation results.
- Publication and avenue for collaboration
Resulting from the above: how are we going to present and disseminate the potential avenues for cooperation in realizing the implementations of the generic models?
