Service-oriented Architectures (SOAs) for the Humanities:
Solutions and Impacts

Joint CLARIN-D/DARIAH Workshop at
Digital Humanities Conference 2012

Large research infrastructure projects in the Humanities and
Social Sciences such as Bamboo, CLARIN, DARIAH, eAqua, Metanet
and Panacea increasingly offer their resources and tools as web
applications or web services via the internet. Such web-based
access has a number of crucial advantages over traditional means
of service provision via downloadable resources or desktop
applications. Since web applications can be invoked from any
browser, downloading, installation, and configuration of
individual tools on the user's local computer is avoided. The
paradigm of service-oriented architectures (SOA) is often used as
a possible architecture for bundling web applications and web
services. While the use of web services and SOAs is quickly
gaining in popularity, there are still a number of open
technology and research questions which await more principal
answers. The purpose of this joint CLARIN/DARIAH workshop is to
provide a forum to address these issues.

We especially encourage submissions on one or more of the
following topics: integration of multimodal resources,
standardization of workflows and data formats, interactivity and
collaborative research in a SOA, impacts of emerging web
technologies on future SOAs, the pros and cons of web-based
versus desktop applications.

Submission Details
Submitted abstracts of papers for oral or demo presentations
should consist of 1500-2000 words. Abstracts will be submitted
electronically using the conference tool ConfTool. Further detail
will be given in the second call for papers.

The accepted papers will be published as electronically available
workshop proceedings.

Invited Speaker
Eric Nyberg (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh),
