*"Digital Humanities & Language Resources" - Joint "Culture & Technology" and CLARIN-D European Summer School 2014 **http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/*

We are happy to announce that the phase of application for a place at the Joint "Culture & Technology" and CLARIN-D European Summer School 2014**"Digital Humanities & Language Resources" has been opened.

The Summer School is directed at 60 participants from all over Europe and beyond. The Summer School wants to bring together (doctoral) students, young scholars and academics from the Arts and Humanities, Library Sciences, Social Sciences, 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 and network-building across the borders of disciplines, countries and cultures.

The Summer School aims to provide a stimulating environment for discussing, learning and advancing knowledge and skills in the methods and technologies which play a central role in Humanities Computing and determine more and more the work done in the Arts and Humanities, in libraries, archives, and museums, in the Language Industries, and similar fields. The Summer School seeks to integrate these activities into the broader context of the /Digital Humanities/, where questions about the consequences and implications of the application of computational methods and tools to cultural artefacts of all kinds are asked. It further aims to provide insights into the complexity of humanistic data and the challenges the Humanities present for computer science and engineering and their further development.

The Summer School takes place across 11 whole days. The intensive programme consists of workshops, public lectures, regular project presentations, a poster session and a panel discussion. The workshop programme is composed of the following thematic strands:

* *XML-TEI encoding, structuring and rendering*


* *Query in Text Corpora*


* *Comparing Corpora*


* *Historical Text Corpora for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Digitization, Annotation, Quality Assurance and Analysis*


* *Open Greek and Latin*


* *Advanced Topics in Humanities Programming with Python*


* *Stylometry: Computer-Assisted Analysis of Literary Texts*


* *Editing in the Digital Age: Historical Texts and Documents*


* *Space - Time - Object: Digital methods in Archaeology*


* *Spoken Language* <http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/388>

* *Multimodal Corpora: How to build and how to understand them*


* *Large Project Planning and Management*


* *DH for Department Chairs and Deans*


Each workshop consists of a total of 16 sessions or 32 week-hours. The number of participants in each workshop is limited to 10.

Information on how to apply for a place in one or two workshops can be found at: http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/ <http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/>.

Preference will be given to young scholars of the Humanities who are planning, or are already involved with, a technology-based research project and who submit a qualified project description. Young scholars of Engineering and Computer Sciences are expected to describe their specialities and interests in such a way that also non-specialists can follow, and to support with good arguments what they hope to learn from the summer school.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis. The selection of participants is made by the Scientific Committee together with the experts who lead the workshops.

Participation fees are more or less the same as last year.

Thanks to our sponsors, the following support for participants will be available:
