Sounds quite interesting. I do appreciate a lot the focus on data. It's
no coincidence that the King's Centre for Computing in Humanities has
been producing two of the very few datasets about antiquity that are
available under an open license.

Unfortunately, I cannot be there - I'm leaving for Crete the day after.
If someone is going, please let us know, we still have some time to
think about a cool proposal, like "A registry of knowledge for
antiquity: CKAN" ...
