Date and Time: 28/05/2021 (13:50-15:45)
Nikos Daskalothanassis, Christina Dimakopoulou

The creation of digital infrastructures for arts and humanities aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research. These infrastructures operate on two levels. On the one hand, they collect, classify and analyze data, and on the other they provide tools for the efficient use of these data in order to construct an easily accessible digital environment that will facilitate research in these fields. The creation of such an infrastructure requires de facto cooperation between arts and humanities researchers on the one hand and applied sciences researchers on the other. Apollonis is a national infrastructure that supports and promotes digital humanities, arts and language technology in Greece. This Communication will follow two directions. It will first present the Apollonis infrastructure, how it is organized and the services it offers to users in order to contribute to the development of research. Secondly - and based on the experience of participating in the design of this infrastructure - the Communication will address some of the issues arising from this "forced" coexistence of researchers coming from two fields that in the modern Western tradition have been distinct.Summary.
After presenting the Apollonis infrastructure that supports and promotes digital humanities and the arts as well as linguistic technology in Greece, this Communication will address issues of collaboration between researchers coming from two traditionally distinct areas, arts and humanities and applied sciences.
