    The Hackathon:
    This free workshop showcased how scientific workflows could be used in digitisation and related fields. Using a number of tools developed in the IMPACT project the workshop explored how they interact within the Taverna platform followed by an exploration of some advanced use cases and technical challenges.
    Attendees examined the general suitability of the Taverna workflow management system and the related myExperiment environment for use within the digitisation and document analysis domain, with a special emphasis on workflows related to OCR processing as were developed in the course of the IMPACT project. Related issues like long-term preservation and natural language processing were also touched upon.

    The workshop brought together technical staff - 'developers' and 'implementers', rather than 'practitioners' in order to encourage the further development of the tools and investigate new solutions and features that could be developed in the near future for the benefit of the wider community.
    The workshop was run by the technical staff of the IMPACT project in conjunction with the Taverna developers at myGrid.
    A full report of this workshop will be made available through the IMPACT Centre of Competence Blogsite at: www.digitisation.eu/index.php?id=8in due course.
    Overview:
    ...
    of workshops arewere to:
    showcase IMPACT tools in Taverna workflows
    showcase how Taverna can be employed within a digitisation context
    ...
    improve the implementation of IMPACT tools in Taverna or fix issues in Taverna relevant to IMPACT
    explore alternative scenarios for adopting Taverna for digitisation related matters, such as e.g. long-term preservation - SCAPE
    It will be a small workshop with a maximum number of attendees of 30, but aiming for 15-20.
    The workshop will run over two days, with the first day being mainly introduction into the concepts and solutions that have been developed, presentations of advanced features and discussion and the second day will be mainly used for practical hands-on development (“hacking”) of tools.
    Please book your place as soon as possible, as demand is expected to be quite high.
