"Materiale Immateriale" is the exhibition that concludes the VVV - Verbo Visuale Virtuale project funded by CaRiTRo. The aim of the project was the creation of an online digital archive of verbo-visual artworks from the Mart Museum in Trento and the Museion in Bozen.
"This year, Day of DH will take place on April 8th. The goal of the project is to create a web site that weaves together a picture of the participant’s activities on the day which answers the question, “Just what do digital humanists really do?” Participants document their day through photographs and text, all of which is published on a community online platform (which, for this year, lives at www.dayofdh2016.uned.es).
We are happy to announce that on 8 and 9 March we will host the kick-off meeting of the SIMPATICO (SIMplifying the interaction with Public Administration Through Information technology for Citizens and cOmpanies) H2020 Project, coordinated by Fondazione Bruno Kessler. The research units involved in the project are Smart Community Lab and Digital Humanities. We will deal mainly with text simplification in the public administration domain.
