Belgium to host DARIAH-EU Annual Event

It is our plHet Pand, Ghent University Conference Centreeasure to announce that Belgium will host this year’s DARIAH-EU Annual Meeting, which will take place on 10-12 October 2016 at the Ghent University Convention Centre, ‘Het Pand’.

Building on the previous General Virtual Competency Centre meetings, this year’s event will not only enable colleagues to work together face-to-face on their DARIAH activities, such as Working Group meetings, it will also include a series of engaging keynote lectures, to inspire the future direction of DARIAH activities. Additionally, we will open up the event beyond the DARIAH community by organising a Digital Arts and Humanities Lab. This 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 Open and Public Humanities.

The formal announcement of the event is available on the DARIAH-EU website.
A draft programme and practical information will be available shortly.
