DARIAH-EU Annual Event
The next DARIAH-EU Annual Event will take place in Paris on 22 – 24 May, 2018.
The theme for this year’s event will be that of Open Science. The digitally-enabled arts and humanities have long been a source of collaboration, sharing, openness to new ideas and methods thanks to the profound and pervasive effects of advancing digital research.
Humanists have both pragmatically and philosophically understood that cooperation in teams and openness to innovation are by now intrinsic characteristics of successful research in the field. In recent years, growing out of the broader Open Access movement, the topic of an even deeper Open Science has emerged, both from the research community itself (as it grapples with issues such as ethics and machine intelligence, wishing to provide greater transparency in terms of methodology) as well as from research institutions, funders, governments and supranational bodies that wish to see science done in a way that has more impact, is more accessible to both academic peers and the public, and is available for inter- and multidisciplinary research.
At the 2018 Annual Event we would like to discuss with the DARIAH-EU community how we deal with issues of open science in the research infrastructure we build, and how the humanities can promote new methodologies for open collaboration.
The event is organized by DARIAH-EU in partnership with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique Huma-Num and it will be held at a beautiful location just outside Paris, at the Chalet de la Porte Jaune – Porte Jaune, Avenue de Nogent, 75012 Paris, France (chaletportejaune.com).

You may already know that in France we are currently having a period of intense strikes, and unfortunately there will be a train strike (SNCF) during the DARIAH Annual Event, both on the 23rd and the 24th of May. The strike seems to be losing its strength but there are still a lot of problems in Paris, especially for trains and to and from the airports. This means that it will be more complicated to go from airports to Paris and vice-versa, but not impossible. There will be trains, but less than usual. Metros and bus will work in Paris; only trains and RER traffic will be affected.
For the 24th of May, it will be easier to book common taxis for people who need to leave from the Annual Event to airports so we can plan to receive your request at the registration desk (from the beginning of the Annual Event to the 24th at 12am).
And well, everything can change after the 7th of May, which is the day where trade unions and government will meet to discuss. We don’t know, actually, if the strike will stop or be reinforced.
Of course, we will keep you updated as the situation evolves.
Recap: DARIAH-EU Annual Event 2017
