DARIAH Virtual Annual Event 2020: Scholarly Primitives

2nd November 2020

Considering the current state of the pandemic and the travel restrictions, the DARIAH Annual Event 2020 has been turned into an online conference.

The programme of the event spreads from October to December to accommodate all sessions. Workshops, synergy sessions and Working Group meetings are organised in weekly sessions from October 7-December 2, on Wednesdays. The papers, plenary sessions, keynote presentation and social events will be held on the central week of the event, on November 10-13, 2020. Posters will be presented in an online exhibition during that central week of the event here: https://www.virtualdariah2020.dariah.eu/posters/, November 9 to 13. Check the programme for more details. 

Social Events

There are two social events planned during the central week of the DARIAH Annual Event, on November 12 and 13, hosted by Croatia and Greece respectively.

The Social Event by Croatia will be held on November 12, 17:00-18:00 CET with the aim of Bringing Zagreb to You! The Croatian team decided to bring the city to you by preparing the best possible 60-minute invitation, so that you visit some other time when Corona will only be a popular beer to toast with.

The Social Event by Greece will be held on November 13, 17:00-18:00 CET and will be a Dance-along! For the Greek-themed Social Event, we would like to invite all participants to dance along with us in preparation and anticipation of the next DARIAH-EU event in Athens.

Best Poster and Best Paper Awards

We are happy to announce awards for the best poster and best paper of the 2020 Annual Event. Thanks to DARIAH-HR, the winners will be invited to present their poster/paper during the 2021 DARIAH Days in Zagreb, Croatia, hosted by DARIAH-HR. DARIAH-HR will cover travel and accommodation expenses (up to 500 eur/person).

At the Virtual Annual Event 2020, the posters will be presented in an online exhibition, which will be open during the central week of the event, between November 9 and November 13. Visitors to this exhibition will be able to vote for the best poster during that week. The best paper will be selected by the Programme Committee of the event following all paper sessions. Both awards will be announced on November 13, at 17:00-18:00 CET at the final Social Event and Closing Remarks session. We will be communicating the virtual exhibition site on November 9.
