Call For Papers

We invite submissions for DH-CASE II: Collaborative Annotations in Shared Environments:
metadata, tools and techniques in the Digital Humanities, to be held in conjunction
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.
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 and
collaborative environments support scholarly discourse, facilitating traditional
practices and enabling new ones.

The focus of this workshop is on the tools and environments that support annotation,
broadly defined, including modeling, authoring, analysis, publication and sharing.
We will explore shared challenges and differing approaches, seeking to identify
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 and
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? plugins/modules?
data models?). Submissions discussing an individual project should focus on these
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 domains,
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 Annotation
Collaboration) and Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums (LODLAM).
