Workshop: Code and Collation


We are pleased to announce a three-day workshop "Code and Collation: Training Textual Scholars" that takes place in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) from 2 - 4 November 2016. The event is part of the DiXiT network and is hosted by the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands. It brings together a group of international experts from the fields of textual scholarship and computer science.

The workshop engages with the theory and practice of semi-automated collation and provides an intense training in the open source collation program CollateX. Participants will learn how to prepare source materials, how to perform semi-automated collation using CollateX, and how to inspect and modify the results; they will acquire or improve computational skills relevant to textual criticism and in particular to the production of scholarly editions.

Registration is now open and free of charge. Early registration is recommended since there are limited places available. Detailed information can be found at the website: For all questions, do not hesitate to get in touch at dixitcollation[at]gmail[dot]com.
