        Subject: 2022 Project management conference at DHSI -- Call for papers, April 4 deadline

Project management is a tool that has long been associated with business. Its
use in the academy is increasing as projects grow beyond the scope of a single
researcher. Funding agencies are encouraging this trend by requesting detailed
and realistic work plans as part of grant applications. However, challenges
exist for the application of project management to research projects. For
example, research goals may be articulated but the methodology to accomplish
them is not well understood. This is further complicated by the fact that
researchers see the application of these tools as rigid management approaches,
perhaps not suited for the academy.

Having said this, due to increasingly collaborative interdisciplinary projects,
many humanities scholars find themselves as “instant” or “accidental” managers.
They are leading teams of researchers from a variety of disciplines, research
assistants, librarians and others, as well as managing financial and other
resources. This is something for which they are often not prepared due to a lack
of training in this area.

This raises questions for exploration with regard to the application of project
management in the humanities generally and digital humanities more specifically.
These include:

  *   What does project management look like in the humanities and digital
  *   What skills and knowledge are needed?
  *   What is the best way to engage and train researchers in the use of these
tools and skills?
  *   What tools are the most effective for managing projects within the
humanities and digital humanities?
  *   What particular challenges do academics face using project management?
  *   What can be learned from the review of the use of project management in
other contexts, such as libraries?
  *   How can students be managed within a project management framework?
  *   What does project management look like in the age of COVID-19?
We invite proposals for pre-recorded, 5-minute lightning talks that address
these and other issues pertinent to research in the area. Proposals should
contain a title, an abstract (of approximately 250 words, plus list of works
cited), and names and affiliations. Pre-recorded videos of lightning talks will
be solicited after proposal acceptance for posting in advance of the gathering.
Please send proposals on or before April 4 to<>.  The conference is June 9 from

        Subject: Reminder: Registration is Open! Python Crash Course – Spring 2022

Dear all,

The Center of Digital Humanities Research at Texas A&M University is
happy to announce that we are offering a remote "Python for Humanists
– Crash Course" through our continuing education program

This is a reminder that registration is open!

For any questions or concerns, please contact us at


Python for Humanists – Crash Course

Dr. Bryan Tarpley, Associate Research Scientist for Critical
Infrastructure Studies at CoDHR, will be teaching "Python for
Humanists – Crash Course", an 8-week long course which seeks to
drastically lower the barrier-to-entry for humanities researchers
interested in unlocking the power of Python. All levels of experience
are welcome to attend.

During these 8 weeks, participants will become acculturated to the
“Pythonic” way of thinking, and will become proficient in using the
following fundamental building blocks of procedural programming:

- Variables, operators, lists, and dictionaries
- If-statements, for-loops, and functions
- Classes, properties, and methods
- Reading, writing, and manipulating files

This course will run from March 25th to May 13th, and meet every
Friday from 9:00-11:00 AM (CST) through Zoom. All class sessions will
be recorded and posted for participants whose schedules conflict with
the live meeting time. More information, including the course
syllabus, can be found on our website,

=== Aim & Scope ===

Cultural heritage, especially fine arts, plays an invaluable role in the
cultural, historical and economic growth of our societies. Fine arts are
primarily developed for aesthetic purposes and are mainly expressed
through painting, sculpture and architecture. In recent years, thanks to
technological improvements and drastic cost reductions, a large-scale
digitization effort has been made, which has led to an increasing
availability of large digitized fine art collections. This availability,
coupled with recent advances in pattern recognition and computer vision,
has disclosed new opportunities, especially for researchers in these
fields, to assist the art community with automatic tools to further
analyze and understand fine arts. Among other benefits, a deeper
understanding of fine arts has the potential to make them more
accessible to a wider population, both in terms of fruition and
creation, thus supporting the spread of culture.

Following the success of the first edition, organized in conjunction
with ICPR 2020, the aim of the workshop is to provide an international
forum for those wishing to present advancements in the state-of-the-art,
innovative research, ongoing projects, and academic and industrial
reports on the application of visual pattern extraction and recognition
for a better understanding and fruition of fine arts. The workshop
solicits contributions from diverse areas such as pattern recognition,
computer vision, artificial intelligence and image processing.

=== Topics ===

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Application of machine learning and deep learning to cultural heritage
and digital humanities
- Computer vision and multimedia data processing for fine arts
- Generative adversarial networks for artistic data
- Augmented and virtual reality for cultural heritage
- 3D reconstruction of historical artifacts
- Point cloud segmentation and classification for cultural heritage
- Historical document analysis
- Content-based retrieval in the art domain
- Speech, audio and music analysis from historical archives
- Digitally enriched museum visits
- Smart interactive experiences in cultural sites
- Projects, products or prototypes for cultural heritage restoration,
preservation and fruition
- Visual question answering and artwork captioning
- Art history and computer vision

=== Invited speaker ===

Eva Cetinic (Digital Visual Studies, University of Zurich, Switzerland)
- "Beyond Similarity: From Stylistic Concepts to Computational Metrics"

Dr. Eva Cetinic is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at the
Center for Digital Visual Studies at the University of Zurich. She
previously worked as a postdoc in Digital Humanities and Machine
Learning at the Department of Computer Science, Durham University, and
as a postdoctoral researcher and professional associate at the Ruđer
Boškovic Institute in Zagreb. She obtained her Ph.D. in Computer science
from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of
Zagreb in 2019 with the thesis titled "Computational detection of
stylistic properties of paintings based on high-level image feature
analysis". Besides being generally interested in the interdisciplinary
field of digital humanities, her specific interests focus on studying
new research methodologies rooted in the intersection of artificial
intelligence and art history. Particularly, she is interested in
exploring deep learning techniques for computational image understanding
and multi-modal reasoning in the context of visual art.

=== Workshop modality ===

The workshop will be held in a hybrid form, both virtual and in presence
participation will be allowed.
