Access Requirements
As preparation for the PhD workshop, participants will be required to read a course book, three articles, install a number of applications on their computers, and to write a short presentation (1-2 pages) on how archived web is relevant to their projects. The written presentation must be sent to the workshop lecturers no later than two weeks in advance of the workshop.
Description
The NetLab PhD workshop in web archiving takes place on January 16 2020, 10 am to 4 pm. The workshop will include presentations on the necessity and challenges of preserving web content (which disappears rapidly and must be preserved as a resource), of the underlying technologies in web content and its preservation, and on how archived web content may differ from the online originals. The presentations will also include small demonstrations and hands-on exercises. Technologies for archiving online content for research purposes will be presented and tried in a hands-on session in the last part of the workshop. For the hands-on session, participants will be able to work with methods relevant to their own specific projects. – Aim: A general understanding of archived web as a resource for research, as well as the underlying technologies for web content and its preservation. Hands-on experience with technologies that can be used for data gathering for their projects. – Target group: The workshop is open to all PhD students at any stage. Other researchers are also welcome. – Application deadline: Please apply for a spot via info@netlab.dk no later than four weeks before the workshop date. Interested parties may contact us later than this, but the possibilities for late registration depend on several factors. – Application fee: NetLab’s PhD workshops are free of charge exclusively for registrants from partner institutions in the Danish DIGHUMLAB initiative (that is, University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Aalborg University, University of Southern Denmark, and The Royal Danish Library). For PhD students and researchers outside the DIGHUMLAB consortium, the PhD workshop fee is 2.500 DKK per person.
