Although we have received more than enough applications we have decided to extend the application phase to the 20th of May 2018 in order to give those people a chance who could not manage to upload their application before the deadline (see: http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/915).

Not all the workshops can, however, take more applications (see http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/921). Only in the following workshops there is still a small number of places available (please note that workshops run in parallel: http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/953):

Workshops are structured in such a way that participants can either take the two blocks of one workshop or two blocks from different workshops. The number of participants in each workshop is limited to 10.

We can also *not* take more applications for CLARIN-D and ETCL fellowships. We received about three times more applications than the number of fellowships available.

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 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).
