5 Preface 11 Preface The Italian Association for Digital Humanities 1 (Aiucd) was launched in 2011 to promote and disseminate methods and facilitate scientific collaboration and development of useful resources in the field of digital humanities in Italy. Aiucd is an associate organization of the European Association for Digital Humanities 2 (Eadh), which brings together and represents the Digital Humanities in Europe across the entire spectrum of disciplines that research, develop, and apply digital humanities methods and technology. Aiucd is thereby represented in the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations 3 (Adho) which promotes and supports digital research and teaching across all arts and humanities disciplines, acting as a community-based advisory force, and supporting world-wide excellence in research, publication, collaboration and training. We are very pleased to present the volume of the proceedings of the 2 nd Annual Conference of the Italian Association for Digital Humanities (Aiucd 2013) on Collaborative Research Practices and Shared Infrastructures for Humanities Computing 4, which took place at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua, December The first conference was held in Florence, December 2012, for An Agenda for Humanities Computing and Digital Culture 5. The third conference 1 Associazione per l Informatica Umanistica e la Cultura Digitale

6 12 Maristella Agosti, Francesca Tomasi will be held in Bologna, September 2014 on Humanities and Their Methods in the Digital Ecosystem 6. This means that Aiucd is working hard towards building a strong interdisciplinary community of researchers in the field of Digital Humanities, and it is working to form a substantial body of scholarly publications contained in the conference proceedings which contribute to representing the different facets of the sector that are active in Italy. Like all areas with a strong interdisciplinary basis, the scientific area of interest of the association and of the conference is struggling to be recognized. We hope that this volume contributes not only to the presentation of the significant aspects of the area but also to the spread of knowledge and broadening of its recognition. The general theme of Aiucd 2013 was Collaborative Research Practices and Shared Infrastructures for Humanities Computing so we particularly welcomed submissions on interdisciplinary work and new developments in the field, encouraging proposals relating to the theme of the conference, or more specifically: interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity, legal and economic issues, tools and collaborative methodologies, measurement and impact of collaborative methodologies, sharing and collaboration methods and approaches, cultural institutions and collaborative facilities, infrastructures and digital libraries as collaborative environments, data resources and technologies sharing. The call showed a large interest on these topics from both the computer science and the humanistic communities: 29 abstracts were submitted and subsequently evaluated through a peer-review process. Members of the Program Committee as well as of the Local Committee were given the task to evaluate them. Eventually 14 submissions were accepted, and organized in 3 sessions during the second day of the conference. About 70 people physically attended the conference. The first day the conference started with the keynote address entitled Toward a Computational Narratology by Jan Christoph Meister, University of Hamburg, Germany. The keynote address argues for a methodological positioning of Digital Humanities research as one that necessarily combines phenomenological with formal conceptualizations of its object domain. After the keynote a session devoted to the presentation of invited contributions from Italian research groups and centers was held and chaired by Fabio Ciotti. The first day was completed by a panel on Digital Resources and 6

7 Preface 13 Network Services for the Digital Humanities Research chaired by Dino Buzzetti. The accepted scientific submissions were presented on the second day and they were organized into three sessions respectively chaired by Maurizio Lana, Roberto Rosselli Del Turco and Francesca Tomasi. All submitted abstracts for which the primary author was a Master or PhD student were eligible for the Aiucd 2013 Best Student Abstract Award ; this award was introduced for the first time at this conference. The prize was awarded to Chiara Ponchia a PhD student at the University of Padua at the time of the conference for the contribution Dante. A web-application for the History of Art. The day was topped off by a panel on The Digital Library to Support the Computer Humanist chaired by Anna Maria Tammaro. The Aiucd business meeting was held immediately after lunch and before the scientific sessions of the afternoon. Summing up a very dense second day of conference! The proceedings reflect the structure of the conference with some reorganizational components. After the keynote contribution the session devoted to invited speakers is presented. The aim of the works in this session is to describe Italian projects and activities managed by some centers and groups involved in the digital humanities domain. Two panels follow on digital resources in the humanities and digital libraries. The papers session i.e. the selection of submitted papers after the peer review process is then organized on three macro-topics: digital philology, digital cultural heritage and education. Finally, the language of the proceedings is English, although some contributions are in Italian. The conference took place in the Aula Magna Antonio Lepschy of the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua. Thanks to the financial support of the Department the participation and mutual knowledge of the participants were encouraged, offering them the opportunity of sharing the moments of rest between work sessions. The success of Aiucd 2013 would not have been possible without the invaluable contributions of all members of the Program Committee, Local Committee and the technical and administrative staff of the Department of Information Engineering that supported the conference in its various stages.
