DigiPal at Università Ca' Foscari
The DigiPal team will be represented at yet another conference next week: this time is 'Digital Palaeography: Projects, Prospects, Potentialities' at Università Ca'Foscari in Venice, on Thursday and Friday 10–11 April 2014. Quoting from the conference flier:
The present international workshop addresses a recent cutting-edge research field which explores the potentialities lying in the application of information technologies to non-printed graphic systems on whatever writing surface.
The workshop proposes to explore three principal themes: the digital paleography state of the art; the potentiality of different approaches applied to automatic digital recognition of medieval handwritings; the problem of sixteenth-eighteenth centuries individual handwriting digital recognition, in particular in wills from the Venetian State Archives, as part of the “Venice Time Machine Project” recently launched by Università Ca’ Foscari, Digital Humanities Lab (DHLAB), EPFL, Lausanne and the Archivio di Stato di Venezia.
The workshop is open to students of both Bachelor and Master levels (with credit recognition of substitute activity for the traineeship), for Ph.D. students and for all those interested in the theme.
