The Summer University takes place across 11 whole days. The intensive programme consists of workshops, public lectures, regular project presentations, a poster session, teaser sessions and a panel discussion. The interesting and diverse WORKSHOP PROGRAMME is composed of the following courses running in parallel (for more information see: http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/1081): - Alex Bia (Universidad Miguel Hernández, Elche, Spain): XML-TEI document encoding, structuring, rendering and transformation (2 weeks) - Carol Chiodo (Harvard University, USA) / Lauren Tilton (University of Richmond, USA): Hands on Humanities Data Workshop - Creation, Discovery and Analysis (2nd week) - Katarzyna Anna Kapitan (Museum of National History, Hillerød, Denmark) / N.

The number of participants of each workshop is limited to 10. The Summer University is directed at 60 participants from all over Europe and beyond. It wants to bring together (doctoral) students, young scholars and academics from the Arts and Humanities, Library Sciences, Social Sciences, the Arts and Engineering and Computer Sciences as equal partners to an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and experience in a multilingual and multicultural context and thus create the conditions for future project-based cooperations. The Leipzig Summer University is special because it not only seeks to offer a space for the discussion and acquisition of new knowledge, skills and competences in those computer technologies which play a central role in Humanities Computing and which determine every day more and more the work done in the Humanities and Cultural Sciences, as well as in publishing, libraries, and archives etc., but because it tries to integrate also linguistics with the Digital Humanities, which pose questions about the consequences and implications of the application of computational methods and tools to cultural artefacts of all kinds. It is special furthermore because it consciously aims at confronting the so-called Gender Divide, i.e. the under-representation of women in the domain of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Germany, Europe and many parts of the world, by relying on the challenges that the Humanities with their complex data and their wealth of women represent for Computer Science and Engineering and the further development of the latter, on the overcoming of the boarders between the so-called hard and soft sciences and on the integration of Humanities, Computer Science and Engineering. As the Summer University is dedicated not only to the acquisition of knowledge and skills, but also wants to foster community building and networking across disciplines, languages and cultures, countries and continents, the programme of the Summer School features also communal coffee breaks, communal lunches in the refectory of the university, and a rich cultural programme (thematic guided tours, visits of archives, museums and exhibitions, and communal dinners in different parts of Leipzig). For all relevant information please consult the Web-Portal of the European Summer School in Digital Humanities "Culture & Technology": http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/ which will be continually updated and integrated with more information as soon as it becomes available.
