Conference website:

The conference was held in the afternoon of March 14th and during the dayof March 15 th , 2023 at the Norman Building (Lutkenieuwstraat 5, Groningen).

Some of the speakers were particularly well-known and established names inthe field of Digital Classics, such as Barbara McGillivray (King’s College, London),Francesco Mambrini and Marco Passarotti (Catholic University, Milan), Rachele Sprugnoli (University of Parma) and Alek Keersmaekers (KU Leuven). There werealso several early career scholars, achieving a good mix of more and lessexperienced academics. All in all, it is safe to say that the majority of scholars whowork on this topic at all were present (since this is a very new field). The workshopwas characterised by extended discussion time and much interaction betweenparticipants, and ideas were shared for new research/papers together.

The field is clearly growing. Attendance was much higher than for the firstedition (in 2021): in particular, 123 people registered for online attendancefrom all over the world, for example from The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, theUnited Kingdom, the United States, Greece, Australia, Poland, Germany, France,Switzerland, Portugal and many others.

We estimate that we have reached at least 70 people in total.

Publishing house De Gruyter contacted us because they are interested inpublishing proceedings from the workshop; the participants generally expressed an interest in writing up their presentations for such an edited volume, we will beworking on this.
