Dear members of the community,

From 24-26 April 2023 the 7th workshop will take place in Leuven (at the campus of KU Leuven’s Faculty of Arts).

On Monday April 24th, selected participants will be able to attend 2 hands-on training sessions (in collaboration with the ENCODE project) on the application of EpiDoc (with a focus on Mycenean inscriptions) and the use of the READ (Research Environment for Ancient Documents) platform for epigraphy. The afternoon session will be followed by a poster session (including a reception, at 16:30 CET). If you would be interested in presenting your digital epigraphy work in this format, please send a title and a short abstract to (deadline: March 24th). By March 31st, you will receive a notification from the committee whether your poster proposal has been accepted. We will also offer the possibility to present your poster virtually, and during the workshop the posters will also be displayed on the website (where they can be published publicly afterwards).

The workshop (25-26 April) will be organized in a hybrid way and can therefore be attended online (at least all public sessions) as well as in-person. During the workshop, members of the different working groups (on the Epigraphic Ontologies, Vocabularies, Outreach, Ethics, Social Media, etc.) will convene to interactively discuss their progress with the community. On Tuesday April 25th, a keynote lecture will be followed by an (optional) social dinner. The morning session on Wednesday April 26th will be dedicated to the future perspectives of, including community decisions on new steering committee members and the organization of the next workshop (applications are welcome at In the afternoon, the organization is preparing a social event, in the form of a visit to a Belgian museum (including a small epigraphic collection).
