WORKSHOPS

 

 

The Centre organises annual workshops for researchers interested in developing computerized methodologies for handling source material, whether literary or artefact, or publishing complex datasets. The aim is to be as user-friendly and inclusive as possible, so presenters have been asked to avoid jargon and to admit to the steep learning curve involved designing databases, etc. The importance of good design will be emphasised. The programme hopes to contrast presentations describing the experience of resource creators, tribulations as well as triumphs, with others focussing on the experience of the consumer. Beginners and experts are equally welcome.
