David Tcheng  and Amit Kumar represented SEASR project at the 19 June 2009 ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries “Workshop On Integrating Digital Library Content with Computational Tools and Services” workshop. The two workshops presented were “SEASR & Meandre for Second Generation Digital Libraries”  and  “ NESTER – Web Based Waveform Analysis with Meandre”.

The presentation abstracts are available here and here.

The powerpoint presentation for the  SEASR & Meandre for Second Generation Digital Libraries is available here.

The University of Victoria’s Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) was held on June 8-12, 2009. Loretta Auvil and Boris Capitanu taught the course entitled “SEASR in Action: Data Analytics for Humanities Scholar”. The slides and course materials for this workshop are at http://dev-tools.seasr.org/confluence/display/Outreach/DHSI-SEASR.

We had 15 students registered for the course. The course covered the following topics: Overview of SEASR infrastructure (components, flows, applications), Introduction to text mining tools, and Using and creating Zotero flows.

On May 11 and 12, 2009 Loretta Auvil, Bernie Acs, and Xavier Llorà worked with a research group led by UIUC Professor Brant Houston. Others joining include David Donald, Jennifer LaFleur, and Jaimi Dowdell.

This was a follow-up workshop from our meeting in January. In the workshop the SEASR staff worked with the researchers to apply existing SEASR tools and to identify other needed tools. The workshop was a success in getting the Journalism group moving toward their goals and to identify specific analysis to target. Additionally, SEASR staff have identified needed changes in their components and flows that will result in adjustments and further development.

We have scheduled another SEASR Workshop for the Monday of Digital Humanities 2009 week. The meeting will be held on June 22, 2009 from 9am – 4pm at University of Maryland at McKeldin Library in Room 7121, just across the road from the Stamp Student Union, where the Digital Humanities conference will be held.

We invite past participants of the SEASR workshops to come share study results, SEASR experiences, and updates on SEASR. We will begin with a brief overview to catch newcomers up on SEASR technologies and to highlight new developments.

The SEASR Team participated in HASTAC by hosting a workshop on the SEASR project. The workshop included informational sessions about SEASR and applications using SEASR as well as a hands on session. Presentations include:

SEASR Overview

SEASR Applications: Zotero

SEASR Applications: Text

SEASR Applications: Fedora

SEASR Applications: Audio

SEASR Architecture

SEASR Tools

The SEASR Team will participate in University of Victoria’s Digital Humanities Summer Institute on June 8-12, 2009.  You can find information at http://www.dhsi.org/. The course entitled “SEASR in Action: Data Analytics for Humanities Scholar” will be taught by Loretta Auvil and Boris Capitanu.

This course focuses on introducing participants to The Software Environment for the Advancement of Scholarly Research, SEASR, providing humanities, arts, and social science communities a transformational cyberinfrastructure technology. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about SEASR through a comprehensive set of presentations and hands-on exercises meant to outline the key aspects of the technology and how it can be applied to solve real-world research problems. SEASR eases scholars’ access to digital research materials and enhances scholars’ use of them through analytics that can uncover hidden information and connections. SEASR fosters collaboration, too, through empowering scholars to share data and research in virtual work environments. SEASR technology is also designed to enable digital humanities developers to design, build, and share software applications that support research and collaboration. Developers can tailor applications both in whole and part to fit scholars’ research needs—from changing the visualization landscapes that provide them with views of analytical results, to inserting new analytics that support their linguistic analysis for different time periods or languages, to readjusting entire steps in the work process so that researchers can validate results and alter their queries. The course will incorporate a variety of learning activities ranging from presentations to structured application sessions to designing specialized analyses. Topics will include: Overview of SEASR infrastructure (components, flows, applications), Introduction to text mining tools, and Using and creating Zotero flows.

The following presentations were given at the Pathways to SEASR Workshop on March 6 at Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

This workshop is organized to provide expanded opportunities for learning, knowledge sharing, and support and is intended to provide sufficient introduction and support so that teams can implement a study using SEASR. This workshop is intended for institutional teams of scholars from the Humanities and will include communication and work from a team’s home campus as well as face-to-face meeting on the University of Illinois campus.
