A Collaborative Environment for Digital Epigraphy

Epigraphy.info Workshop V

The fifth epigraphy.info workshop in Leuven will be taking place from November 3rd-6th, 2020.

Due to the the current international measures against the COVID-19 pandemic, the workshop will have a hybrid form. This means that we will offer you the possibility to attend it in person or to join it virtually.

Registration:

In order to register for the workshop:

As the international situation is changing very quickly, we will regularly keep you up to date, and we will contact you again before the workshop for a last confirmation.

Poster Session (Deadline extended):

The Leuven workshop will host an E-poster session dedicated to the presentation of new and ongoing projects in the field of Digital Epigraphy.
The E-posters will be displayed in a virtual environment for the whole duration of the workshop; after that you will have the possibility to have them published on the Epigraphy.info website.

E-Posters Guidelines:
E-Posters may include text, images, graphs as well as videos and audio. You can prepare your poster in the format that you find more suitable (PDF, PowerPoint, .mp4, .mpg, avi.).
The only rule is: keep it short!
For PDF you should limit your documentation to a single page (ideally 1080 x 1536 px), PowerPoint presentation should include no more than 3 slides.
The maximum duration of a video is 5 minutes.
Please send us your E-Poster via a file transfer website (like WeTransfer: https://wetransfer.com/ or Smash https://fromsmash.com/).

Be creative!
We want to make our poster session as effective and inclusive as possible: if you have any creative ideas or suggestions about formats or virtual rooms, please send us an email or write in the Google Groups (https://groups.google.com/g/epigraphyinfo) and we will take them into consideration.

Deadline extended:
In order to present a poster, please send a title and a short abstract to our committee by September 25th, 2020 (info@epigraphy.info). By September 30th, 2020 you will receive a notification from the steering committee whether your E-Poster has been accepted. E-Posters should be submitted by October 28th, 2020.
