DARIAH Annual Event 2024

Workflows: Digital Methods for Reproducible Research Practices in the Arts and Humanities

Lisbon, Portugal. June 18-21, 2024

DARIAH Annual Event 2024 will be dedicated to the topic of Workflows: Digital Methods for Reproducible Research Practices in the Arts and Humanities.

Aim: explore, assess, analyse and embody the challenges of designing, implementing, documenting and sharing digitally-enabled workflows in the context of arts and humanities research from a technical, methodological, infrastructural and conceptual point of view.

Questions to be see addressed include but are not limited to:

  • What is the state of the art in research workflows in the digital arts and humanities? What are we doing well, and what should we do better?

  • How can we evaluate the appropriateness of a workflow or assess its efficiency? What makes a workflow innovative?

  • Are there differences in the way we define and implement workflows in different scholarly domains?

  • What is the role of interdisciplinarity: how can collaborations between experts from different disciplines (arts, humanities, technology etc.) lead to innovative perspectives and more comprehensive solutions to specific challenges?

  • What does it mean for a workflow to be ethical, reproducible and sustainable? What kind of documentation is necessary and at what level of granularity?

  • Are there modelling, standardisation or data management frameworks that make the documentation of workflows easier?

  • What is the role of training and education in preserving and communicating workflows?

  • How do we — both institutionally and conceptually — become better aware of the tacit knowledge and hidden costs which seem to be embedded in most of our day-to-day professional activities?

  • To what extent is the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) affecting our research workflows?

  • What will be the role of responsible, human-centric AI in the future of research workflows?

  • Finally, what should DARIAH do — in addition to treating workflows as a particular content type on the SSH Open Marketplace — to help researchers develop, deploy and disseminate workflows that contribute to the interoperability of data, tools and services?

Deadline for submissions: February 4, 2023

The Annual Event will be held in person in Lisbon, Portugal. Accepted submissions are expected to be presented in-person.
