November 14-15, 2011, Manchester: The IMPACT project (http://www.impact-project.eu) and the Taverna team runned a free hackathon on the use of Taverna workflows in IMPACT and cultural heritage digitisation.
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 have also been touched upon (from http://impact-mygrid-taverna-hackathon.wikispaces.com/).
Various SCAPE project members contributed to the workshop. A list of participants and an agenda of the event can be found here.
