'Computation and Palaeography: Potentials and Limits', Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop 12382

Activity: OtherTypes of External academic engagement - Research and Teaching at External Organisation

Dagstuhl Perspectives Seminar 12382, ‘Perspectives Workshop: Computation and Palaeography: Potentials and Limits’, brought together seventeen international experts in palaeography and computer vision to provide effcient solutions to time and labor consuming palaeographic tasks. It furthermore attempts to provide scholars with quantitative evidence to palaeographical arguments, consequently facilitating a better understanding of our cultural heritage through the unique perspective of ancient and medieval documents. The workshop provided a vital opportunity for palaeographers to interact and discuss the potential of digital methods with computer scientists specializing in machine vision and statistical data analysis. This was essential not only in suggesting new directions and ideas for improving palaeographic research, but also in identifying questions which scholars working individually, in their respective fields, would not have asked without directly communicating with colleagues from outside their research community.
