Call for Papers - International Workshop



International Workshop
within the Framework of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) supported by the European Commission
Organized by
Centro di Documentazione Ebraica Contemporanea - CDEC Foundation
Università Cà Foscari, Venice
29 -30 June 2017


In conjunction with the international LODLAM Summit, Venice, 28th-29th June 2017 (
We would like to invite you to participate to the international workshop on "Data Sharing, Holocaust Documentation and the Digital Humanities. Best Practices, Case Studies, Benefits", to be held in Venice on 29-30 June 2017.

Launched in November 2010, the main goal of EHRI is the implementation of a research infrastructure, which enables collaborative work in Holocaust research and documentation. As part of the infrastructure work, EHRI integrates archival metadata across institutional, national and language boundaries, making it searchable and helping researchers to find relationships between archival collections. This context makes the deployment of efficient data collection, sharing, processing and integration technologies and approaches (including semantic technologies) crucial to achieve success in the implementation of the infrastructure.

The EHRI workshops are organized for the purpose of generating a creative exchange of knowledge and views between professionals in various subfields of Holocaust research and documentation, along with experts outside the field of Holocaust studies who can share their experience and methodologies.

Together with the development of data sharing utilities for collection holding institutions, EHRI develops controlled vocabularies such as authority lists of people, corporate bodies, Holocaust related entities like ghettos, camps or administrative districts of occupied territories as well as a hierarchy of concepts for the indexing and retrieval of Holocaust related archival material.
We aim to share all this knowledge with other research communities.

The aims of the workshop are:
• Presenting the state of the art of data sharing practices and technologies starting from the experiences and results obtained in the EHRI project
• Discussing the usability and potential of data sharing in the Humanities
• Investigating the possible connections between the EHRI Project and other Research Infrastructures and Digital Humanities Projects
