I, too, want to voice my thanks to Quinn and others for stepping up here! I
think the document looks good, and I hope to participate remotely or perhaps
be in the audience, if it is accepted.

Dear Quinn,


a huge "thank you" for drafting the great Forum-proposal from me, too.

I would also be willing to act as a facilitator for the Forum and listet my
name+ORCID in the googledoc.


Thank you in advance to Geoff Bacon for the submission!


With regard to OCR: this is a much discussed topic and also quite a
difficult one for East Asian scripts. It would be very useful to collect the
latest developments, tools and projects in broadly shared document.


Thanks again for your creative energy and networking power!


Best regards

Betreff: [multilingual-dh] Facilitators for DH 2020 forum? 


Dear all,


We’ve got a revised draft ready for the forum submission, and Geoff Bacon
has offered to submit it. Is there anyone else besides Svenja Gülden who’d
like to be listed as a co-facilitator on the submission? I think we can have
up to four.


I’ll leave the doc open until Sunday, October 13th for additional
facilitators. All you need to do is leave your name, email address,
institution, and ORCID. After that, I’ll turn it over to Geoff for actual
submission to ADHO.


In the meantime, I’ve been talking with some folks about how we can expand
our website in a rational and sustainable way (using Jekyll and GitHub
pages). I’ve got a variety of OCR resources collected, but I’m short on time
to rework the site for it until the end of the month. But more should be
coming shortly thereafter! And if you have suggestions for OCR tools or text
corpora, let me know and we can start a Google Doc to collect them until the
website is restructured a bit.
