Meeting Description:

Sustainable Data from Digital Research
A PARADISEC Conference

Digital methods for recording information are now ubiquitous. In fieldwork-based disciplines, like linguistics, musicology, anthropology and so on, recordings are typically of high cultural value and there is great benefit in the proper curation of these recordings, to the researcher, to the community in which they worked, and to the broader society.

What are the costs and benefits of these technologies?

Call for Papers:

Papers are welcomed on any relevant topic, including (but not limited to):

How can we:

- Ensure the longevity of the data we record
- Access our own data over time
- Provide public access to publicly funded research data (including dealing with ethical and IP issues)
- Provide data to the people we record, especially to those who have little access to computers or the internet
- Ensure that our research processes and analysis take maximum advantage of the access to data provided by digital methods
- Embed our analysis in accessible data to allow verification of our claims
- Enable research based on digital data from archival sources
- Develop tools and processes that accumulate data in standards-conformant formats

Abstracts should be submitted here by May 9, 2011: http://sydney.edu.au/arts/conferences/index.php/humanities_perspectives/SDDR/user/account

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These 
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return 
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact 
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
