The DATeCH <http://datech.digitisation.eu/> (Digital Access to Textual
Cultural Heritage) international conference brings together researchers and
practitioners seeking innovative approaches for the creation,
transformation and exploitation of historical documents in digital form.
This interdisciplinary conference, takes place at the intersection of
computer science, (digital) humanities, and cultural heritage studies.

The conference aims to present an up-to-date vision of the most recent
advances in technology for the digitisation of text, to showcase successful
experiences in their application and to explore the challenges for the near
future of digitisation.
Where and when will it take place?

Following the previous successful editions of the conference at the National
Library of Spain in 2014
<http://datech.digitisation.eu/previous-editions/datech-2014/> and the
State and University Library, Germany in 2017
<http://datech.digitisation.eu/previous-editions/datech-2017/>, the 3rd
edition of DATeCH will take place in the heart of Brussels (Belgium), at
the facilities of the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the
Arts <http://www.kvab.be/en/contact> on 9-10 May 2019. The pre-conference
workshop will take place at Royal Library of Belgium <https://www.kbr.be/en>
on 8 May, 2019.
Why should I attend DATeCH?


   Become aware of new technology for the digitisation of textual content.

   Influence future trends in digitisation: meet researchers, leading
   companies, and service providers and discuss your requirements.

   Participate in the discussions about the future of digitisation. Experts
   and key actors of digitisation and digital humanities will share their

   Network and build new connections with representatives of libraries,
   companies and institutions involved in digitisation.

The full list of accepted papers will be published in early March.
Pre-conference workshop

On May 8th, the workshop “Experimenting in the Digital Research Lab: a
hands-on Introduction to using digital collections for digital humanities
research” will take place at Royal Library of Belgium.

Libraries and other cultural heritage institutions are increasing providing
data-level access to their digitised and born-digital collections. In
parallel, the use of digital tools and methods in humanities research is on
the rise. Alongside this, the number of ‘labs initiatives’, such as those
in the British Library-initiated Building Library Labs network, which
encourage and support researchers to experiment with digitised collections,
is growing.  It is this context that provides the basis for this year’s
DATeCH pre-conference workshop.

This workshop, hosted by the Royal Library of Belgium, is intended to
introduce humanities researchers, cultural heritage professionals and
IT-experts to the various interconnecting (and sometimes non-linear) stages
in a digital humanities research project. It will focus on  three core
stages common to most digital humanities projects: a) data access: using
APIs to access digital library collections, b) data preparation: preparing
the data for analysis and c) data analysis: tools and methods for analysing
your data. These sessions will be led by experts in the field. A number of
pre-prepared datasets will be made available for hands-on experimentation.

Audience: humanities researchers, cultural heritage professionals,
information, data and computer scientists and research infrastructure
