Supporting researchers in exploring and examining digitised artefacts presents many challenges in terms of understanding each researcher's needs, performing appropriate manipulation of and uplift from content, and in presenting a suite of useful research tools to facilitate exploration.
This workshop will delve into these Digital Humanities challenges by examining the approaches taken in the CULTURA project (cultura-project.eu) to tackle the issues of:
Engaging with End Users through Participatory Design and Evaluation
Maintaining Data Fidelity whilst preparing it for Deep Exploration
Combining a suite of tools into a Holistic Personalised Environment to support researchers
This virtual/physical workshop will use CULTURA as a case study to drive discussion by presenting demonstrations and results from the project. The outputs of this workshop will be captured and placed online.
Date: 16th January 2014
Time: 13:00 - 16:00 GMT
Virtually - via live streaming and audience feedback channels (limited to 100 participants).
