The areas of Digital Humanities and e-Science have an important intersection and this workshop proposes to explore this common ground, aiming at expanding the participation of intensive computational resources in Humanities studies.

For the purpose of the workshop, we conceive the area of "Digital Humanities" in a broad sense, comprehending the interactions between Information Technology and Computer Science on the one hand, and on the other hand several humanities related areas which include, but are not limited to, Philosophy, History, Geography, Social Sciences, Linguistics and Letters, Education, Economics, Law, Anthropology, Archaeology, Communication Studies and Information Sciences.

One important aspect of research in Digital Humanities is that it raises theoretical questions to the field, as well as practical, analytic and methodological ones. These theoretical questions have been intensively debated in the Digital Humanities community in the last decade, at least. We would now want to bring this discussion to an e-Science framework.

Therefore, we welcome contributions in the technical areas of Digital Humanities, but also contributions that address those theoretical and methodological issues. Topics of interest to this forum include, but are not limited to:
