We would like to invite you to participate in 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
