Since software services, and the innovative software
architectures that they require, are becoming widespread in
their use in the Digital Humanities, it is important to facilitate
and encourage problem and solution sharing among different
disciplines to avoid reinventing the wheel. This workshop will
build on two previous Service Oriented Computing in the
Humanities events held in 2006 and 2007(under the auspices
of SOSERNET and the AHRC ICT Methods Network). The
workshop is structured around four invited presentations
from different humanities disciplines. These disciplines are
concerned with (e.g.) archaeological data, textual data, the
visual arts and historical information. The presentations will
approach humanities data, and the various uses of it, from
different perspectives at different stages in the research
lifecycle. There will refl ection on the issues that arise at the
conception of a research idea, through to data gathering,
analysis, collaboration and publication and dissemination. A
further presentation from Computer Science will act as a
‘technical response’ to these papers, showcasing different tool
types and how they can be applied to the kinds of data and
methods discussed.
The presentations will be interspersed with scheduled
discussion sessions and The emphasis throughout is on
collaboration, and what the humanities and computer science
communities can learn from one another: do we have a
common agenda, and how can we take this forward? The day
will conclude with a moderated discussion that will seek to
identify and frame that agenda, and form the basis of a report.
