    The GhentCDH offers advice and support for collaborative databases at Ghent University. It helps researchers to develop a database instance, powered by e.g. Nodegoat. It provides advice regarding data standards and linked data.


Humanist Computer Interaction under Scrutiny

Workshop aimed at analysing and validating the innovation potential of digital methods and tools in the Humanities

Library Lab, Faculty of Arts and Philosophy , June 4th-5th

The project Humanist Interaction under Scrutiny aims at analysing and validating the innovation potential of digital methods and tools in the Humanities.

The aim of the workshop is to (1) introduce its participants to a modular setting of digital methods and tools, (2) to let them put these applications to the test when addressing authentic research questions, and (3) to discuss and evaluate their user experience in combination with the wider potential of digital methods in the Humanities.

CLARIAH-Benelux Workshop on Geospatial and Semantic Web Technologies

De Krook, June 11th

Researchers and developers within the Benelux have been building up expertise on geospatial technology within deep mapping and Time Machine projects. The Geohumanities rely on fast developing spatial technologies, semantic web technology and Linked open Data and at the same time explore collaborative en participatory research methods.

In this first CLARIAH-Benelux meeting we bring together developers, researchers and coordinators to exchange ideas and experiences of our geospatial projects. How can we collaborate in future development and research?
