The Annual Event is open beyond the DARIAH community. It features a series of engaging keynote lectures and interactive sessions, which bring together researchers, technologists, data scientists and cultural heritage professionals. Additionally, it enables colleagues to work together face-to-face on their DARIAH activities, e.g. in Working Group meetings.
This year’s event will take place in Paris on 22 – 24 May 2018. The theme for this year is 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 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 this 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 DARIAH 2018 event is an opportunity for researchers, Working Groups, DARIAH related projects, and the governing bodies in DARIAH to meet, present progress and new ideas, exchange experiences, and discuss future challenges. The event consists of three parts:
1) DARIAH-EU Plenary sessions
2) Parallel sessions with workshops on topics of open science. The second part is kicked-off by the marketplace where working groups and affiliated DARIAH projects will showcase their research activities.
3) Additionally, there will be opportunities for colleagues to work together on their DARIAH activities face-to-face, such as Working Group meetings.
A (self-paid) dinner is organized on Wednesday 23rd may at 20:00 at “Restaurant des belles plantes”.

*Please note that the restaurant is currently being renovated, so it may appear on the map under a different name
We are particularly pleased to announce the keynote speakers that will open and close the event, and that will focus on the event’s theme of open science:
Open Science is just good science by Dr. Jon Tennant
Intellectual Property Rights in Ethically Open Science by Prof. Teresa Scassa
We are excited to announce four interactive sessions and workshops on the theme of Open Science, that will take place on Thursday 24th May.
