DH2010 Workshop | Arts and Humanities E-Science Support Centre

Access to the Grid: Interfacing the Humanities with Grid Technologies

Full day workshop: Monday 5 July 2010

Registration for DH2010 is now open

This one day workshop is part of the DH2010 pre-conference programme, which will seek to scope practical points of engagement, both current and potential, between Grid infrastructures in the UK and Europe. There can be little doubt that large-scale Grid infrastructures have transformed the way research is done in some parts of the physical sciences. High-profile enterprises such as the Large Hadron Collider would be of little use without computational infrastructures which are capable of supporting the vast quantities of data they produce. Although these branches of science are unique in terms of the volumes of data they contend with, other fields are encountering equivalent research problems which require Grid services and resources, and cognate technologies, tailored according to their own disciplinary needs. The humanities are no exception: recent engagement between the humanities and 'e-Science' (e.g. www.ahessc.ac.uk/initiative-projects) have shown that their complex data and research processes can be supported and enhanced using Grids and associated technologies. This workshop will seek to scope practical points of engagement, both current and potential, between Grid infrastructures in the UK and Europe. It will place particular emphasis on the portals and interface technology that humanists need in order to use Grids. The event will bring together leading European practitioners of digital humanities (many of whom have already done significant work with Grid infrastructures) together with representatives of key Grid infrastructure organizations, including EGI and the NGS. It will attempt to produce a roadmap of which areas of the humanities have most to gain from using Grids, and which do not; and how the Grid and humanities research communities can better work together in the future. This event comes within the context of a major change in European research e-infrastructure. The Enabling Grids for E-Science (EGEE) will be replaced by the European Grid Initiative (http://web.eu-egi.eu). Given the latter’s emphasis on federating National Grid Initiatives (NGIs), it is important that the digital humanities position themselves to gain maximum advantage both nationally and at a European level.

This workshop is being held with the support of JISC (www.jisc.ac.uk).
