First Call for Papers
8- 9 October 2009, university of Hamburg, Germany

Over the last few years a lot of effort went into collecting digital 
data relating to historical objects (manuscript digitisations, critical 
editions, watermark collections), and into making these available to 
specific scientific communities as well as to a broader public. Despite 
targeted standardisation actions, one of the major problems encountered 
was the heterogeneity of data to be modelled. This heterogeneity often 
steers researchers to local solutions which, in the longer term, are an 
obstacle to the integration of different repositories. Other prevalent 
problems include the imposssibility of applying OCR software to 
hand-written texts and the difficulty of applying language technology 
methods and tools that are usually developed with modern languages in mind.
The present workshop aims at discussing these problems and presenting 
solutions, and at bringing together researchers from different areas of 
the Digital Humanities.

We are looking for original contributions describing completed work in 
one of the following areas:
- models for heterogeneous data in repositories
- semantic based information retrieval
- text technology for historical languages
- visualisation of heterogeneous data
- image processing for accessing textual data in manuscripts
- standards for data collection
- digital edition
- user scenarios
