Dear all,

I am very pleased to announce that the /DH Training Workshop: Digital 
Methods for Linguistic Investigation/ will take place *November 13-15, 
2019* at *Freie Universität Berlin*.

The event is organized by Simona Olivieri, Humboldt Research Fellow at 
Seminar für Semitistik und Arabistik, Freie Universität Berlin, with the 
support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

The workshop will bring together 20 trainees together with experts to 
share experiences, methods and techniques for the creation, management 
and use of linguistic data.

Our aim is to present a sketch of different methodologies for the 
digital treatment of languages and linguistic information, and to give 
an overall view of the benefits of applying digital methods to 
investigate humanities research questions.

Ideal trainees will be students, PhD students and postdocs from 
linguistic disciplines interested in digital treatment of languages, 
e-lexicography and creation of digital resources.

The training will focus on standards-compliant representations of texts 
in digital form, and sessions will be organized in hands-on slots on 
data modeling and managing.

Main instructors will be *Laurent Romary* (Directeur de Recherche, 
Inria, Team ALMAnaCH, France), *Toma Tasovac*, (Director of the Belgrade 
Center for Digital Humanities (BCDH)/Director of DARIAH-EU), and 
*Giuliano Lancioni* (Roma Tre University).

The workshop will also feature public lectures to present Digital 
Humanities projects on Arabic and Syriac. Keynote lectures will be given 
by *Simona Olivieri* (FU Berlin) and *Giuliano Lancioni* (Roma Tre 
University), *Karlheinz Mörth* (Director of the Austrian Center for 
Digital Humanities – Austrian Academy of Sciences), and *George Kiraz* 
(Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton / Beth Mardutho).

Applicants should submit their bio and a short proposal presenting their 
background and interest in the field. The description of a concrete 
project involving linguistic data that they would like to work on during 
the training sessions will also be considered in the selection. All 
documents should be sent as a single PDF-file attachment labelled as 
“Last Name_DHWorkshopFU.pdf” to Dr. Simona Olivieri 
simona.olivieri at fu-berlin.de <mailto:simona.olivieri at fu-berlin.de>by 
*July 15, 2019*.

Attendees will be required to bring their laptops and sample data to the 
training sessions, so to be able to work on the application of the 
methodologies presented by the instructors.

Participation is free of charge.
