Transkribus User Conference 24 – Call For Contributions

The Transkribus User Conference 24 (15 & 16 February 2024, Innsbruck) invites stakeholders, users, scholars, and enthusiasts to explore the future of information extraction and share their experience with Transkribus and its output. As we move towards an era where handwritten and printed texts are becoming more and more accessible in digital form, we open our doors to a multifaceted dialogue on the next steps for exploring the content and improving the understanding of our written past. Thus, the main focus of the 2024 edition of the Transkribus User Conference is the topic of Information Extraction. We invite contributions in the following formats:

Lightning Talks (10 mins)

The Lightning Talks present an opportunity for Transkribus users to share their innovative work with the community. In a focused 5-minute presentation, followed by 5 minutes for questions, participants can showcase their projects, findings, or techniques in utilising Transkribus.

Abstract (150 words)

Round Tables (60 mins)

Round Tables offer an open platform for in-depth discussion and exploration of ideas, methodologies, or challenges related to information extraction using the Transkribus ecosystem. Participants can engage in an interactive, cooperative, and reflective dialogue, aiming to foster understanding and collaboration.
Abstract (250 words)

Workshops and Writing Sprints (120 mins)

Workshops are designed to cater to all experience levels, offering hands-on experiences ranging from beginner’s instruction to expert-level insights. If you have expertise in an area that aligns with Transkribus and information extraction, we invite you to submit your workshop proposal. Share your knowledge and skills, and contribute to the learning journey of others.
