Apologies for cross-posting


We invite submissions for DH-CASE II: Collaborative Annotations in Shared
metadata, tools and techniques in the Digital Humanities, to be held in
with the ACM Document Engineering 2014 conference.


Digital Humanities is rapidly becoming a central part of humanities
research, drawing upon
tools and approaches from Computer Science, Information Organization, and
Document Engineering to address the challenges of analyzing and annotating
the growing
number and range of corpora that support humanist scholarship.

== Focus of workshop

>From cuneiform tablets, ancient scrolls, and papyri, to contemporary
letters, books,
and manuscripts, corpora of interest to humanities scholars span the
world’s cultures
and historic range. More and more documents are being transliterated,
digitized, and
made available for study with digital tools. Scholarship ranges from
translation to
interpretation, from syntactic analysis to multi-corpus synthesis of
patterns and
ideas. Underlying much of humanities scholarship is the activity of
Annotation of the "aboutness" of documents and entities ranges from
linguistic markup,
to structural and semantic relations, to subjective commentary; annotation
of "activity"
around documents and entities includes scholarly workflows, analytic
processes, and
patterns of influence among a community of scholars. Sharable annotations
collaborative environments support scholarly discourse, facilitating
practices and enabling new ones.

The focus of this workshop is on the tools and environments that support
broadly defined, including modeling, authoring, analysis, publication and
We will explore shared challenges and differing approaches, seeking to
emerging best practices, as well as those approaches that may have
potential for
wider application or influence.

== Call

We invite contributions related to the intersection of theory, design, and
implementation, emphasizing a "big-picture" view of architectural, modeling
integration approaches in digital humanities. Submissions are encouraged
that discuss
data and tool reuse, and that explore what the most successful levels are
for reusing
the products of a digital humanities project (complete systems? APIs?
data models?). Submissions discussing an individual project should focus on
larger questions, rather than primarily reporting on the project's
activities. This
workshop is a forum in which to consider the connections and influences
between DH
annotation tools and environments, and the tools and models used in other
that may provide new approaches to the challenges we face. It is also a
locus for
the discussion of emerging standards and practices such as OAC (Open
Collaboration) and Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums
