22-24 May 2018 Paris (France)


Update Train Strike 23rd - 24th May in Paris

You may already know that in France we are currently having a period of intense strikes, and unfortunately there will be a train strike (SNCF) during the Annual Event, both on the 23rd and the 24th of May. The strike seems to be losing its strength but there are still a lot of problems in Paris, especially for trains to and from the airports. This means that it will be more complicated to go from airports to Paris and vice-versa, but not impossible. There will be trains, but less than usual. Metros and bus will work in Paris; only trains and RER traffic will be affected.

There are also several other possibilities to travel from airports to Paris (https://bit.ly/2bLx66l and https://bit.ly/2bLwm12) And of course you can book a taxi or Uber. 

For the 24th of May, it will be easier to book common taxis for people who need to leave from the Annual Event to airports so we can plan to receive your request at the registration desk (from the beginning of the Annual Event to the 24th at 12am).

And well, everything can change after the 7th of May, which is the day where trade unions and government will meet to discuss. We don’t know, actually, if the strike will stop or be reinforced. 

Of course, we will keep you updated as the situation evolves. 


Best wishes,

Suzanne, for the program committee.


The theme for this year's event will be that of 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.



DARIAH activities

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".

Address: 75005 Paris - https://goo.gl/5GtA8u 

 *Please note that the restaurant is currently being renovated, so it may appear on the map under a different name
