NeDiMAH has adopted a flexible and responsive approach to developing activities outside of the Working Group structure which draw together issues related to Digital Methods in the Arts and Humanities.  Upcoming events include NeDiMAH/Dariah collaborations around NeMO, the NeDiMAH methods ontology; a collaborative workshop with CLARIN: Exploring Historical Sources with Language Technology- Results and Perspectives (The Hague, 8-9 December 2014); and an event in University of Debrecen, Hungary in February 2015- Multi Modal Communication: Resources and Application. An activity relating to the manuscript in the digital age wll take place in April 2015, organised by Lorna Hughes at National Library of Wales.  A event investigating potential uses for APIs in Humanities and Social Science research, organised by NeDiMAH in conjuncation with the Europeana Cloud (eCloud) project will take place on 17 December 2014.
