HELDIG Digital Humanities Summit 2018

HELDIG Summit 2018 is organized on Tuesday 23 October, 9:00–19:00. This year's theme is "Infrastructures for Digital Humanities".

Welcome to the already traditional HELDIG Digital Humanities Summit! This year's Summit 2018 presents a picture of the Finnish Digital Humanities Infrastructure landscape, and contrasts it with international developments: Where are we now? What services are there available? How are they used, and what are the next steps ahead?

To stimulate discussions, the day starts with the keynote "Infrastructures and Interfaces for Digital Humanities Research: Dutch Experiences and Expectations" by prof. Charles van den Heuvel from Huygens Institute and University of Amsterdam.

After this follows presentations regarding international infrastructure collaborations, existing data, vocabulary, and ontology infrastructures, language technology services, and data infrastructures related to museums, libraries, and archives. There are 22 presentations of people representing 16 different organizations. In the end, bubbles and nibbles are served in a social networking event.

Participation in HELDIG Digital Humanities Summit 2018 is open and free, but registration is required for catering.
