Fifth COST-WWIH Training School 18 - 22 February 2013

Objectives of this Training School:

Next to the “normal” objectives of the COST-WWIH Training Schools, this fifth one aims at preparing the trainees to participate in discussions going on about the Virtual Research Environment which will be developed this year thanks to CLARIN-NL funding for the project COBWWWEB.

During this 5th Training School we will in particular continue focusing on and testing the way in which we have started standardizing information to be added on the authors’ and the reception level – through the use of a so-called protocol, developed in the two Think-Tank Meetings which were held in July and September 2012. This protocol has equally been discussed in Working Group 1, and will now be distributed and commented before our further working on it. As usual in all Training Schools, criteria for selecting and handling of sources will also be discussed.

For the first time we will also have three “virtual” participants: they had planned to participate but were unable to come for different practical reasons. Possibly they will adapt their working hours to their own possibilities, but will be part of the Training School in the sense that just as the other Trainees they will enter data corresponding to their own research needs, and have the possibility of discussing the work, using e-mail and skype (as much as possible). They are also asked to give a brief presentation of their research – by providing the information as below, and by a short statement (via skype or e-mail), which can be commented upon and compared to the projects of the other trainees.
