As part of the activities of Digital Humanities group in FBK, we are organizing a one-day workshop on "Digital Humanities: Current state and Future challenges". The event will include invited talks from prominent scholars and experts from the Digital Humanities area, especially those active at the intersection between humanities and human language technologies. We would like to know more about past successful experiences and ongoing projects all over Europe.  

The paper "Frame Semantics Annotation Made Easy with DBpedia" by Marco Fossati, Sara Tonelli and Claudio Giuliano has been accepted at the 1st International Workshop on Crowdsourcing the Semantic Web (CrowdSem2013), co-located with ISWC2013.

Crowd-sourcing techniques have been recently used to gather vast amounts of annotations from non-experts working on-line through specialized platforms such as  Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT), or Crowdflower. Besides, other kinds of collaborative platforms for transcribing manuscripts, tagging digital content or correcting OCR output have been successfully tested in specific domains, fostering online collaboration among experts in the Humanities.
