Meeting Description:

Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) for the Humanities: Solutions and Impacts
Joint CLARIN-D/DARIAH Workshop at Digital Humanities Conference 2012

Large research infrastructure projects in the Humanities and Social Sciences such as Bamboo, CLARIN, DARIAH, eAqua, Metanet and Panacea increasingly offer their resources and tools as web applications or web services via the internet. Such web-based access has a number of crucial advantages over traditional means of service provision via downloadable resources or desktop applications. Since web applications can be invoked from any browser, downloading, installation, and configuration of individual tools on the user's local computer is avoided. The paradigm of service-oriented architectures (SOA) is often used as a possible architecture for bundling web applications and web services. While the use of web services and SOAs is quickly gaining in popularity, there are still a number of open technology and research questions which await more principal answers. The purpose of this joint CLARIN/DARIAH workshop is to provide a forum to address these issues.

Invited Speaker:

Eric Nyburg (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh), title to be announced
