Meeting Description:

The label “Digital Humanities”, especially in the case of linguistic and philological sciences, indicates a number of different approaches, that range from the digital publication of materials to the development of advanced strategies of formal representation aiming at investigating specific features of texts and languages that were previously studied using a standard, pre-computational approach.

The workshop “Formal Representation & Digital Humanities: text, language and tools”, organized within the framework of the MSCA project “SLUW: A Computer-Aided Study of the (Morpho-)Syntax of the Luwian Language”, to be held at the University of Verona (Italy) on June 28-29, 2016, aims at promoting the communication between specialists of all aspects of digital and computational philology and linguistics.
