Trinity Long Room Hub Methods Seminar


On 28 October, Shawn Day of the Digital Humanities Observatory (DHO)
will present a talk entitled: Visualisation and what you can do with
historical data

Digitisation and data encoding are all the rage in the humanities. Yet,
once you have digitised your source what exactly can you do with it that
was not possible in the original format? How can you use digitised
sources in analytical research, and how can it be presented visually in
lectures and presentations? In this talk, Shawn Day from the Digital
Humanities Observatory will explore the means by which researchers can
'mine' complex datasets using readily available tools such as Google
Earth, GIS, SketchUp!, and Graphviz. Shawn will use data from the 1901
census and Trinity College's '1641 Depositions Project' to give
practical examples of how visualisation techniques can assist
researchers in a range of disciplines across the humanities.

Where: Seminar Room, Trinity Irish Art Research Centre
<http://www.tcd.ie/History_of_Art/triarc/index.php> (TRIARC), Trinity
College Dublin.
When: 4.00-6.00pm, Tuesday 28 October 2008.

A searchable map of college, showing the location of the TRIARC building
is available here. <http://www.tcd.ie/Maps/map.php>


Sincerely,

Los Angeles/Anaheim, USA

http://world-research-institutes.org/conferences/CSIE/2009

CALL FOR PAPERS/ABSTRACTS, INVITED SESSIONS & EXPO

The Los Angeles/Anaheim area is known for its many renowned
attractions, such as Disneyland, Universal Studios and the
Hollywood Walk of Fame. Very few cities in the world offer
as much entertainment, excitement and diversity as Los
Angeles/Anaheim does.

Computer Society and all papers in the proceedings will be
included in EI Compendex, ISTP, and IEEE Xplore.

CSIE 2009 intends to be a global forum for researchers and
engineers to present and discuss recent advances and new
techniques in computer science and information engineering.
CSIE 2009 consists of the following Technical Symposiums:

  * Computer Applications Symposium
  * Communications & Mobile Computing Symposium
  * Computer Design & VLSI Symposium
  * Data Mining & Data Engineering Symposium
  * Intelligent Systems Symposium
  * Multimedia & Signal Processing Symposium
  * Software Engineering Symposium

Invited sessions offer focused discussions on specialized topics.
A prospective invited session organizer should send a proposal,
including a session title, a short synopsis, bio-sketch of the
organizer with a publication list, to the appropriate Symposium
Chair (visit the conference website for more details).

In addition to research papers, CSIE 2009 also seeks exhibitions
of modern products and equipment for computer science and
information engineering.
