Present your project
At the workshop in Belgrade, we invite you to present current projects, websites or digital collections and share your experiences, your solutions and your lessons learned. What good practice can we derive from your experience? What should (or shouldn’t) we do, and how should we do it?

We hope that these discussions will help us to develop with you together in Belgrade and further on guidelines for digitisation of academic heritage and making it available on the web: What standards should we use? What infrastructures and resources do we need? How do we acquire technical expertise? What kind of visibility and usability should we aim at? What is good data quality? How can we exchange and aggregate data?

Please register for the workshop using this Google form:

Please use the form also to register a presentation by May, 15th. Every presentation should last about 5 minutes with another 5 minutes time for discussion. During your presentation, we would like to ask you to answer these five questions:

1. What is your project about?
2. Why did the project get started?
3. What are your main goals?
4. What can people do with the results of your project?
5. What can we learn from your experience?

We nicknamed this format “5-5-5”: 5 minutes, 5 questions, 5 answers. For further details, please see the form.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us. We are looking forward to meeting you in the wonderful city of Belgrade!
