We are delighted to announce an international workshop on “CLASSICAL TEXTS IN DIGITAL MEDIA”, which will take place at the University of Patras (Greece) on 1-3 Sept. 2023 (room II-9, Conference and Cultural Centre). The event will be live-streamed (connect via https://zoom.us/join - meeting ID: 980 8170 8162 - passcode: 525286) and anyone interested is welcome to join.

This workshop will bring together leading researchers and research groups in digital Classics, with the twofold aim of: (i) showcasing and sharing knowledge of the latest developments in working with digitised Greek and Latin texts and related materials; and (ii) identifying hindrances to / limitations of this work, with a view to establishing possible ways forward. At the same time, there will be a round-table discussion with Classics' publishers on the prospects and challenges of digital and open-access publications in the field.

The event is hosted by the Greek Tragedians Online project (https://eadh.org/projects/greek-fgramentary-tragedians-online-fragtrag1), with funding from the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (ELIDEK). It is also endorsed by the following organisations: U. of Ioannina Institute of Digital Innovation, Brepols, Brill, Cambridge University Press, De Gruyter, Hellenic National Documentation Centre.
