From July 23 to 26, 2019, at the National Library of Latvia will be held the Second Baltic Summer School of Digital Humanities: Essentials of Coding and Encoding.
The Baltic Summer School of Digital Humanities is an international, intensive continuing-education programme giving researchers, teachers and students in the humanities and social sciences, as well as archival, library and museum professionals the opportunity to acquire a variety of digital research skills – from the skills required to work with digital data to research-result visualisation skills. This year's programme focuses on the basics of programming for researchers in the humanities and social sciences and the encoding or labelling of texts.
The programme includes four practical workshops and five public lectures. Workshops will provide the basics of the Python programming language, text encoding and topic modelling skills, as well as the visualisation of networks on the Palladio platform developed by Stanford University.
The public lecture programme will help students learn how neural machine translation works, what the difference is between reading analogue and digital media, the opportunities offered by the world’s most modern digital newspaper libraries and other current digital-research news. Lectures and workshops will be run by ten lecturers from seven countries (Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina).
The Baltic Summer School of Digital Humanities is organised through partnership between the NLL, the University of Latvia Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art and the University of Latvia. The programme is supported by the State Culture Capital Foundation and CLARIN, the Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure.

NLP research group, Institute of Computer Science (University of Tartu) invites for the submission of proposals for the 8th International Conference "Human Language Technologies - the Baltic Perspective" (hlt2018.ut.ee), which will take place in Tartu, Estonia on September 27-29, 2018. Its deepest and darkest desire is to promote collaboration and exchange of ideas between researchers, developers, students and users of human language processing technologies. The main topic of interest is the state of human language technologies for the languages spoken in the Baltic states.
European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH) will hold its first congress December 6–8, 2018 in Galway, Ireland.
The EADH2018 programme committee is looking to etablish a multilingual reviewer pool and has prepared the Call for Reviewers (download pdf).
Please consider applying as reviewer for the EADH2018 congress – you can add the languages you are comfortable reviewing in and thus extent the multilingual reach of Digital Humanities in Europe!
A Call for Papers will be released soon.
The Annual Event is open beyond the DARIAH community. It features a series of engaging keynote lectures and interactive sessions, which bring together researchers, technologists, data scientists and cultural heritage professionals. Additionally it enables colleagues to work together face-to-face on their DARIAH activities, e.g. in Working Group meetings.
Half day pre-conference workshops are held on the morning the conference starts, Wed 7 March 2018, between 9:00 and 12:30. Full day pre-conference workshops will be held on Tue 6 March 2018. The Hacking the News pre-conference workshop starts already on Mon 5 March at 12:30. More exact details will be published as they become available.

The 3rd conference of the association of Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries (DHN) will be held at the University of Helsinki March 7–9, 2018. The conference is organised by HELDIG – the Helsinki Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Helsinki, the Faculty of Arts.
In 2018, the conference seeks to extend the scope of digital humanities research covered, both into new areas, as well as beyond the Nordic and Baltic countries. This year, the conference welcomes in particular work related to the following themes: History, Cultural Heritage, Games, and Future.
The overarching theme this year is Open Science. This pragmatic concept emphasises the role of transparent and reproducible research practices, open dissemination of results, and new forms of collaboration, all greatly facilitated by digitalisation. All proposals are invited to reflect on the benefits, challenges, and prospects of open science for their own research.
The Lexical Data Master Class aims at
bringing together 20 trainees together with experts to share
experiences, methods and techniques for the creation, management
and use of digital lexical data.
Background and Motivation
Co-organized by DARIAH, the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW), Inria (Paris, France) and the Belgrade Center for Digital Humanities, with the support of the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Clarin and DARIAH-DE, the Lexical Data Master Class will take place in Berlin at the BBAW from 4 to 8 December 2017.
For the first time in the long history of the conference, Digital Humanities are proposed as a special subject area of the conference. The coordinators of the DH division invite:
"researchers to share their experience on how digital practices, tools and methods have contributed to their research. What’s the contribution of computational power to humanities research, and how has it changed the way we look at and analyze our source materials? Has it opened up new methodological approaches, changed our research questions? And what are researchers’ solutions for handling digital culture, often multimedial, happening in real time, with various legal restrictions: how it can be tamed and transformed into research data?"
Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries calls for submissions for its 2018 conference in Helsinki, Finland, 7–9 March 2018.
In 2018, the conference seeks to extend the scope of digital humanities research covered, both into new areas, as well as beyond the Nordic and Baltic countries. In pursuit of this, in addition to the abstracts familiar from humanities traditions, we also adopt a call for publication ready texts as is the tradition in computer science conferences. Therefore, we accept the following types of submissions:
Publication ready texts of length appropriate to the topic. Accepted papers will be submitted to the CEUR-WS proceedings series for publication in a citable form. Layout for the papers is not absolutely mandated, but we suggest you use the Springer LNCS templates to ensure a uniform look for the proceedings.
The conference "Open licences, open content, open data: tools for developing digital humanities" will take place in November 1–3, 2017, at the Estonian National Museum in Tartu.
Call for proposals is open by September 30.

With the next/third DHN conference being prepared for 7–9 March 2018 in Helsinki, the Board would like to invite DHN members and others interested in DH to submit proposals for hosting the 2019 conference. The DHN conferences in Oslo 2016 and Gothenburg 2017 were great successes and the forthcoming one in Helsinki promises to be just as stimulating and enjoyable. It is anticipated that the 4th annual DHN conference will be held around the same dates in 2019 as the previous conferences (i.e. mid-March). The conference is expected to be held in one of the Nordic or Baltic countries. Read more
