Recap: DARIAH-EU Virtual Annual Event 2020
The DARIAH Virtual Annual Event 2020, initially scheduled to take place in May in Zagreb, Croatia, was postponed to the fall and transformed into an online conference as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Topic of this year’s event was Scholarly Primitives. Twenty years since John Unsworth first formulated scholarly primitives as a set of recursive and interrelated functions that form the foundations of research activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras, the event aimed to freshly interrogate both the notion and the scope of scholarly primitives.
The event had a very rich programme of sessions: 15 weekly sessions of Working Group meetings, synergy sessions and workshops, 18 paper presentations, a poster exhibition with 18 posters and 1 demo, 1 keynote by John Unsworth and 2 social events. Workshops, synergy sessions and Working Group meetings were organised from October 7-December 2, on Wednesdays. The papers, plenary session, keynote and social events were held on November 10-13, which was the central week of the event. We were happy to welcome more than 300 registered participants from 40 countries around the world, from Europe, the US, Canada and Latin America, from Africa and Asia.
Thanks to the generous support by DARIAH-HR, this year we awarded the Best Poster and Best Paper of the conference with a trip to the 2021 DARIAH Days in Zagreb, Croatia, where winners will be invited to present their poster/paper. The Best Paper Award was selected by the Programme Committee of the event while the Best Poster was voted by the public visiting the poster exhibition site during the central week of the event. Check the winners.

Recap: DARIAH-EU Annual Event 2019
The DARIAH Annual Event 2019 was held on May 15-17, 2019 in Warsaw, Poland. Topic of this year’s event was Humanities Data. At the very heart of this topic linger questions around the type and amount of data that humanists collect: what kind of data do we have; where is it; and who owns it? Is our data indeed complex, and if so, what makes it complex? How do definitions and conceptualisations of the term ‘data’ resonate with or, perhaps more accurately, alienate us from our conceptions of our source landscape as art and humanities scholars? And, of course, how will the major European policy initiative to build an Open Science Cloud for research data impact upon our practices and opportunities?
The 2019 Annual Event introduced a new format. It combined forms of encounter developed in prior meetings, such as Working Groups meetings, workshops organised by Working Groups and projects, and a Marketplace to exchange ideas around new research projects and infrastructural solutions with an open conference setting. The call for participation was subdivided into two streams: (1) Meetings and (2) Papers/Posters.

Recap: DARIAH-EU Annual Event 2018
The DARIAH Annual Event 2018, held on May 22-24 in Paris, France, was a lively meeting point for researchers, Working Groups, DARIAH-related projects, and the DARIAH governing bodies to exchange experiences, present progress, explore new ideas, and discuss future challenges. This year’s theme: Open Science. Growing out of the broader Open Access movement, the topic of an even deeper Open Science has emerged in recent years, both from the research community itself, 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.
DARIAH-EU decided to set Open Science as the theme of this year’s Annual Event with the aim of engaging the DARIAH-EU community in discussions on how we deal with issues of open science in research infrastructures, and how the humanities can adopt new methodologies for open collaboration.
