We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the DARIAH EU-Annual Event, which will take place at the Ghent University Convention Centre, ‘Het Pand’ on 10-13 October 2016, organised by DARIAH-BE.
The 2016 event is organised in two parts: 1) the DARIAH-EU Annual Meeting and 2) the Digital Arts and Humanities Lab, both of which will be kicked-off with an inspirational keynote lecture. Additionally, there will be opportunities for colleagues to work together on their DARIAH activities face-to-face, such as Working Group meetings. A social dinner (self-paid) has been organised on Tuesday 11 October at 19:30 at Het Pakhuis.
1) DARIAH-EU Annual Meeting: This part of the event is the Annual DARIAH-EU member’s meeting, which builds on previous General Virtual Competency Centre meetings. A key part of the event will be the Working Group Marketplace. This is where existing and new DARIAH-EU Working Groups will introduce their working group and provide an update on their activities. The marketplace set-up will also help facilitate interaction between the working groups. Additionally there will be updates from the DARIAH-EU team and an interactive workshop enabling colleagues to provide input on future directions for DARIAH.
2) Digital Arts and Humanities Lab: is intended to be an interactive session bringing together researchers, technologists, data scientists and cultural heritage professionals, to demonstrate and engage with data, tools and services around the theme of digital arts and humanities. This part of the event will focus on bringing the ‘arts’ to DARIAH. Contributions from digital arts (music, art, cinema etc.) and digital culture will be especially welcomed. Additionally there will be presentations from projects who have been awarded funding as part of the DARIAH Theme programme.
If you have any questions, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are delighted to report that further details about the DARIAH-EU Annual Event which will take place from 10-12 October at the Ghent University Convention Centre, ‘Het Pand’ have been published on the DARIAH-EU website.
Together with colleagues from DARIAH-EU, the outline programme for the DARIAH-EU Annual Event has been put in place.
We are now in the process of liaising with the existing DARIAH-EU Working Groups regarding how they would like to contribute. For Working Groups in the process of being established, such as those in Belgium, there will be also the opportunity to contribute to the meeting. We will be in contact with the Working Group Coordinators about this shortly.
Digital Arts and Humanities Lab
On the afternoon of Tuesday 11 October, the event will be opened up beyond the DARIAH community. The Digital Arts and Humanities Lab is intended to be an interactive session will bring together researchers, technologists, data scientists and cultural heritage professionals, to demonstrate and engage with data, tools and services around the theme of digital arts and humanities. A call for participation will be launched shortly. For Belgium, this would be an ideal opportunity to develop new partnerships with local organisations.
Registration for the event, including the (self-paid) social dinner, which will be held at the Pakhuis Brasserie, will be available in August.
We look forward to welcoming you to Ghent in October!

On Friday 27 November 2015, the first DARIAH-BE meeting together with the launch of the Research Community Digital Humanities Flanders took place at the University of Antwerp. The aim of this meeting was to bring together colleagues from across Belgium to find out more about what DARIAH, the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities, is and to participate.
