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 event will also be held in honor of our colleague Emanuele Pianta, the founder of the DH group at FBK, who passed away tragically one year ago.


There are no registration costs. The event is open to students and researchers for free.

<!–However, every participant is requested to register.
