SUMMER SCHOOL IN ADVANCED TOOLS FOR DIGITAL HUMANITIES AND IT

The Centre for Excellence in the Humanities to the University of Sofia, Bulgaria, has the pleasure to invite, for a fourth time, experts in the fields of Digital Humanities and Information Technologies to an Advanced Summer School in Digital Humanities.

  • Training in Linked Spatial Data, Geo-annotation, Visualisation and Information system (Geography and Topography) – with Valeria Vitale (School of Advanced Studies, University of London), Gabriel Bodard (School of Advanced Studies, University of London);
  • Training in Python for data extraction, enriching and cataloguing – with Simona Stoyanova (School of Advanced Studies, University of London) and Gabriel Bodard (School of Advanced Studies, University of London);
  • Training in EpiDoc and TEI markup, use of vocabularies, and web delivery (including external URI use, XSLT customization, and entity normalization) – with Simona Stoyanova (School of Advanced Studies, University of London) and Gabriel Bodard (School of Advanced Studies, University of London);
  • Presentations in Big Data and Information Extraction – Dimitar Birov (University of Sofia) and Eduardo Miranda (Carnegie Mellon University of Pittsburgh).

A round table on the current trends and the future developments of Digital Humanities in South-East Europe.

The event will take place between 7th and 11th September. The participation fee is 50 euros. The transport to and from the mountain resort and the accommodation and meals there will be covered by the organizers.
