Digital Arts & Humanities is a place to share and discuss ideas, promote
your research and discover the digital arts and humanities.

It is a virtual (meta)community for arts and humanities researchers using
ICT methods, developed by the AHRC ICT Methods Network and hosted by King's
College London. We host various discussion groups and offer community and
dissemination tools for practitioners working in the field. Part of Digital
Arts & Humanities is a match-making service for registered users that allows
you to search members' profiles for common interests or needed skills - we
currently have over 300 profiles in the database.


You can contribute to all the ongoing discussions, engage with others - and
maybe even start your own group. Please contact Torsten Reimer
(torsten.reimer_at_kcl.ac.uk) for further questions.


ICT Events Calendar

The ICT Events Calendar lists conferences, workshops and other events
related to information and communication technology in research. You can
subscribe to its RSS feed or directly import all events into your calendar
via its ical function. The subscription module of Digital Arts & Humanities
allows you to receive automatic announcements of new events - and as a
registered user you can announce your own activities and tag them to make
them visible for others:



Archaeology and 3D technology
A special interest group for archaeologists and heritage professionals
working with 3-dimensional data and spatial analysis technologies

Intimacy: Across Digital and Visceral Performance
Explorations of intimate encounters in performance practice, bridging across
digital performance and live art

The Digital Body
Discussions on virtual, mixed and augmented realities and their relation to
the body

A user group for the Wmatrix corpus analysis and comparison tool


After the AHDS: The End of National Support?

Interview: Paul Rayson Wmatrix, text mining

Web Portals and the Historic Environment


The wiki now contains some 70 articles on tools and methods in the digital
arts and humanities, from "Access Grid for Art Historians" to "XML and
Related Methods in Archaeology". You can amend the information contained
here and also create new articles:



Audio recordings of presentations and podcasts, dealing with issues such as
text mining or spatial technologies in archaeology. Listen to a case study
on virtual restoration and manuscript archaeology:

Video: This new section gives you access to video recordings of
presentations given at Methods Network events. Watch the panel "Talking CGI"
given at the Art of British CGI conference earlier this year:

Image Interpolation Algorithms

Professors Tunku Acharya (Avisere Inc and
Aritzona State University) and Ping-Sing Tsai
(University of Texas, Pan American) explain that
interpolation algorithms can be grouped into two
categories, adaptive or non-adaptive "The
computational logic of an adaptive image
interpolation technique is mostly dependent upon
the intrinsic image features and contents of the
input image whereas computational logic of a
non-adaptive image interpolation technique is
fixed irrespective of the input image features".
They discuss the progress of both non-adaptive
and adaptive image interpolation techniques,
propose a new algorithm for image interpolation
in a discrete wavelet transform domain, describe
the underlying computational foundations of all
these algorithms and their implementation
techniques, and show the impact of these
algorithms in terms of image quality metrics and
computational requirements for implementation.
