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.
