DescriptionResearchers in humanities are increasingly using computational methods for the analysis of large cultural data sets. Digital humanities is also involved in the creation of environments and tools for producing, curating, and interacting with knowledge that is 'born digital' and lives in various digital contexts. The computational analysis of language encompasses a range of scientific disciplines, including linguistics, lexicography, and language technology. As such, computational analysis of language is an integral element of R&D in the humanities, the social sciences, and computer science. The study of human language is inherently data-driven and, in recent decades, increasingly computational and large-scale in nature. Although several e-Infrastructure challenges within the social sciences and humanities are of disciplinary nature, there are also several commonalities such as data quality, data archiving, data access and legal and ethics aspects. Solutions to these common problems may facilitate interdisciplinary cross-walks for researchers enabling creation of new insights.  Speakers include Erik Champion (Aarhus University), Stefan Oepen (University of Oslo) and Hans Jørgen Marker (DASISH/Swedish National Data Service).
