CALL. 15.02.2019: [SESSION 15] Encoding Data for Interdisciplinary Use and Digital Collaboration (ASOR 2019) - San Diego (CA, USA)









LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Westin San Diego Hotel (San Diego, CA, USA)


ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Vanessa Bigot Juloux, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes(EPHE), Paris Sciences et Lettres (PSL) and Andrews University; AmyGansell, St. John’s University


INFO: web -




Data encoding entails an analog-to-digital conversion in which the characteristics of an object, text, image, or archaeological site can be represented in a specialized format for computer handling. Once encoded, data can be stored, sorted, and analyzed through a variety of computer-based techniques ranging from specialized
data-mining algorithms to user-friendly mobile apps. Especially when using linked open data, researchers around the world can collaborate on the collection, encoding, and analysis of data. A single encoded corpus could be analyzed concurrently by multiple projects, and encoded data can be linked across corpuses to facilitate broader, potentially interdisciplinary, studies.

This three-year session offers a venue for the presentation of methodologies, projects, and discoveries based on encoding or encoded data. We describe and demonstrate a wide spectrum of research that will include studies of stratigraphy, object typologies, provenance, cultural heritage, epigraphy, e-philology, and prosopography. Ultimately we will show the value of cyber-research as a powerful resource for revealing otherwise imperceptible information about ancient Near Eastern time. We welcome art historians, historians,
epigraphers, philologists, anthropologists, and archaeologists, including prehistorians, Bible scholars, Hittitologists, Egyptologists, Aegeanists, and Byzantinists. This session will inspire new networks and designs for digital collaboration.

Submission: Abstracts should be submitted via ASOR’s Online Abstract Management System:

Deadline to Submit: February 15, 2019
Please note that presenters must be ASOR members and registered for the San Diego meeting in order to submit an abstract.
