event: Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks – 2nd Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2011

Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks –
2nd Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2011

taking place at the Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest,
on Tuesday, June 7, 2011.

Abstract:
We are pleased to announce the second Leonardo satellite symposium at NetSci2011 on Arts, Humanities, and Complex Networks. The aim of the symposium is to foster cross-disciplinary research on complex systems within or with the help of arts and humanities.
The symposium will highlight arts and humanities as an interesting source of data, where the combined experience of arts, humanities research, and natural science makes a huge difference in overcoming the limitations of artificially segregated communities of practice. Furthermore, the symposium will focus on striking examples, where artists and humanities researchers make an impact within the natural sciences. By bringing together network scientists and specialists from the arts and humanities we strive for a better understanding of networks and their visualizations in general.
The overall mission is to bring together pioneer work, leveraging previously unused potential by developing the right questions, methods, and tools, as well as dealing with problems of information accuracy and incompleteness. Running parallel to the NetSci2011 conference, the symposium will also provide a unique opportunity to mingle with leading researchers and practitioners of complex network science, potentially sparking fruitful collaborations.

In addition to keynotes and interdisciplinary discussion, we are looking for a number of contributed talks. Selected papers will be published in print in a Special Section of Leonardo Journal (MIT Press), as well as online in Leonardo Transactions. The symposium is a follow up to the first satellite event on “Arts | Humanities | Complex Networks" at NetSci2010 in Boston. The 2010 abstracts, papers, and videos are available at http://artshumanities.netsci2010.net.

Confirmed keynote speakers:
* Marek Claassen, Director, ArtFacts.Net
* Jim Crutchfield, Director, Complexity Sciences Center, UC Davis / Scientific Director and Vice President, Art & Science Laboratory, Santa Fe
* Nathalie Henry Riche, researcher, VIBE group, Microsoft Research, Seattle

Roger Malina, Executive Editor at Leonardo Publications, France/USA
Isabel Meirelles, Dept. of Art + Design, Northeastern University, USA

event: Research databases in the humanities – where next?

21/01/2011 12:00

What are the issues that researchers in the Humanities face when compiling data, and how can technology help or hinder? The workshop will look at the ways in which humanities researchers build, maintain, and preserve databases, along with the processes currently in place to support such activities. It will consider what tools could be developed to support the creation and use of research data, how data from different sources might be linked, and, where relevant, the role that public or private cloud services might play.
