Inscriptions of Aphrodisias: An Arts and Humanities Research Board Project, hosted by the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy, Konferenzraum 2 and 3, Jägerstrasse 22/23, 10117 Berlin -- Saturday 17-Sunday 18 September

Workshop on Digital Epigraphy

The aim of the workshop is to exchange information about the digital exploitation of documents (What are we doing?), to learn about each others methodologies (How are we doing it?) and to exchange ideas about future progress and plans (Where are we going? What do we need?). We hope to keep discussion as informal as possible: it is helpful to learn about each others mistakes, and also to share wild ideas.
