Computerised Management of Ancient Scripts: State of the Question and Perspectives

Despite twenty years of constant developments in the digital humanities field and, in particular, the decisive progress made by the MUFI, the encoding of ancient scripts is still extremely problematic. With a view to gaining a comprehensive view of the current situation and future perspectives, the CESR (Centre for Advanced Renaissance Studies, Tours) and the IRAMAT (Institute for Research on Archaeomaterials, Orleans) jointly propose to bring together diverse specialists (researchers in literature, the humanities, social science; professionals working in libraries and museums, as well as in the graphic arts and computing) for a two day study session programmed to take place at Tours (France), on the 21st and 22nd May 2013.
