The focus of this event is to engage academia, industry, cultural institutions and public bodies to identify the key research challenges in digital humanities, and to further build the academic-industry partnerships that will enable adoption of digital humanities skills, technologies and tools. This focus will extend to the innovative use of digital humanities technologies in the public sector demonstrating social benefit, such as the digitisation of the Irish census and the use of open linked public data. During the three days, participants will expand their skills through a series of workshops lead by subject matter experts, in the areas of data visualisation and in the application of linked data to leverage the semantic web for scholarly humanities research. This workshop will combine a day of hands-on practical application with master classes and lectures and a day-long symposium drawing together academic and industry practitioners.
