If any of you happen to be in Berlin the last week of July (27-31), there will be a very interesting conference: Travels Between Europe and the Americas – “Fifth International and Interdisciplinary Alexander von Humboldt Conference” Freie Universität Berlin.
Apparently this is going to be a huge conference with more than 300 partecipants. Scholars from many disciplines, professors and graduate students interested in travels between Europe and the Americas will convene in Berlin and discuss their research.
I will have a chance to present some research of my Master studies in this conference as well. My presentation is included in Section B:Travels between Europe and Latin America (15th through 21st centuries). The focus of the presentation will be related to implementations in the Humboldt Digital Library (“Increasing the Effectiveness of Information Retrieval in the Humboldt Digital Library by Implementation of Multivariable Metadata”), July 29th, between 09.30-10.30.
The Programm can be downloaded in a PDF file.
