As part of the DARIAH-DESIR project, the GhentCDH is delighted to be organising a series of workshops in 2018 and 2019 entitled “DARIAH Beyond Europe”, allowing an exchange of ideas between the DARIAH community and Digital Arts & Humanities projects in the United States and Australia. The workshops will be held at Stanford University, the Library of Congress, and in Adelaide hosted by the Australian Research Data Commons.  

Storing, securing and making born-digital or digitised information available in a sustainable manner is a major challenge. Concepts such as metadata, Meta Information, Open Data, Big Data… are on the rise but their meaning and content - let alone their implications for social impact - is only seldom questioned. The Working Group Sustainable Publishing of (Meta)data therefore aims to organise a workshop with the central theme “(meta)data and archival science”. This workshop will take place on 14 and 15 May 2018 at the National Archives of Belgium in Brussels.
