Stanford, California, USA

Program overview:

This 3-day conference will highlight ongoing work in the European Digital Research Infrastructure for Arts and Humanities (DARIAH) and how these projects and initiatives could potentially intersect with DH initiatives in the North American academic community, particularly on the West Coast. This is the first of three DARIAH dissemination workshops: the second will take place at the Library of Congress in October 2018, and the third in March 2019 in Adelaide, Australia.

The purposes of the conference are to promote DARIAH tools and services, to initiate collaborations, and above all to exchange knowledge and experience in digital scholarship on an international level.

Conference sessions will focus on image annotation, text analysis, geohumanities, and digital scholarship in music.
