Subject: Linking Past People: A Prosopography Hackathon at the Uni of Vienna (Feb 13-15, 2019) - Open Call For Participants Dear Colleagues, Please let me call your attention on our second hackathon at the DH Uni Wien, this time focusing on prosopography. A number of technical challenges remain in the world of prosopography. How best to link between online databases and share information between them, whether underlying systems can be made more generic, and what models and linkages to use within any given database system are all current concerns. The Uni Vienna Digital Humanities team are hosting this three day hackathon to look at these and other current issues in prosopography, bringing together a range of programmers and prosopographers with the intention of taking steps towards developing technical solutions to these issues. We are inviting all interested digital humanists with an inclination for coding to partake in this event in Vienna, which will run from Feb 13 to Feb 15 with a meal for participants on the 15th. We are able to offer small bursaries to offset traveling costs. If you would like to attend, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Prosopography Hackathon' in the subject by 31 December 2018 Please see more details in the attachment. Best regards, -- Mária Vargha Praedoc-Assistentin für Digital Humanities Institut für Geschichte Univestität Wien Attachments: Open_Call_Prosothon.pdf: https://dhhumanist.org/att/33888/att00/ _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
