In recent years, scholars have started to investigate the diverse genealogies of the digital humanities, as part of efforts to consolidate the field by excavating its historical and intellectual underpinnings. This paper discusses the history of what we now call digital history, by focusing on its direct predecessor: the history and computing movement. It argues that understanding the current era of digital history is impossible without knowledge of the transnational history & computing movement out of which it emerged. The paper will first offer a conceptual framework for the nexus between technology and historical research practices and provide a brief outline of the uptake of computing in historical research in the post-WWII period, which was rooted in a broader context of engagement with reproduction and data processing technology that began in the late 19th century. From the 1940s onwards, historians begin to use analog and later digital computing, efforts that truly gained momentum from the early 1960s onwards in the United States, Western Europe and the Eastern bloc led by the Soviet Union, against the backdrop of the Cold War and a general surge in the use of computing in various humanities disciplines. By the late 1960s we begin to see the establishment of networks and structures to support what could be called an emerging transnational field of computing historians. A transition to a new phase began when first micro- and then personal computing were introduced at universities in the early 1980s and a new user generation of computing historians emerged. As had happened almost two decades earlier, a transnational network would develop, but this time formalised in the Association for History and Computing (AHC) which existed until the early 2000s. The AHC’s history, activities, and many publications highlight the transnational outlook and intellectual breadth of the history and computing period and can served to probe the transition to and (dis)continuities with our current era of digital history. As I will argue, the history and computing movement did not simply give rise to digital history around the turn of the millennium. Despite the continued involvement of some older practitioners, many of the new digital historians were, as before, of a different user generation and the transition to digital history was thus much more than discursive.

Expertenworkshop am 30./31.08.2022 im Landesarchiv NRW in Duisburg: born digitals und die historische Wissenschaft – Annäherungen an eine Quellenkunde für genuin elektronisches Archivmaterial Zu den grundsätzlichen Kompetenzen von Historiker*innen gehört die methodische Quellenkri-tik. Gleichzeitig ist es gute fachliche Tradition, dass Archivar*innen diese Kompetenz immer schon mit Blick auf die in ihren Häusern überlieferten Unterlagen gefördert haben. Archi-var*innen kennen die überlieferten Unterlagen mit ihren Charakteristika, ihren Besonderhei-ten, ihren Entstehungszusammenhängen u.ä.m. Aus diesem Wissen heraus sind viele Standard-werke zur Akten- oder Quellenkunde entstanden, die die Historiker*innen bei ihrer Forschungs-arbeit unterstützen. Aus einer Vielzahl von Werken seien an dieser Stelle beispielhaft Heinrich Otto Meisner, Aktenkunde, ders., Archivalienkunde, Gerhard Schmid, Akten, Jürgen Klooster-huis, Amtliche Aktenkunde der Neuzeit, Michael Hochedlinger, Urkunden- und Aktenlehre der Neuzeit genannt. Mit der digitalen Transformation der gesamten Gesellschaft seit dem ausgehenden 20. Jahrhun-dert unterliegen auch die klassischen historischen Quellen einem fortlaufenden Digitalisie-rungsprozess: Briefe werden zu E-Mails, Akten zu E-Akten, Karteikarten zu Datensätzen etc. Hinzu treten Quellen rein digitaler Natur, die in der analogen Welt keine vergleichbaren Vorgänger hatten wie Websites oder Vorgangsbearbeitungssysteme (Fachverfahren). Archivar*innen haben bereits erste Erfahrungen mit der Sicherung dieser Unterlagen. Gleichzeitig haben Zeithistori-ker*innen begonnen, diese Unterlagen für ihre Arbeiten zu nutzen. Von einem guten fachlichen Standard im Umgang mit dieser jüngsten Überlieferungsschicht sind aber alle noch entfernt, es fehlen Praxiserfahrungen in der Breite wie in der Tiefe und zwar sowohl bei der Überlieferungs-bildung und der Archivierung als auch bei der Nutzung und der Interpretation. Die digitale Transformation in Gesellschaft und Verwaltung fordert(e) also Archivar*innen heraus, Konzepte und Verfahren zu entwickeln, um genuin elektronisches Schriftgut dauerhaft zu erhalten, also ebenso langfristig zu archivieren wie mittelalterliche Urkunden oder neuzeitliche Verwaltungs-akten. Dabei geht es um nichts Geringeres als die Verhinderung einer umfassend fehlenden Überlieferung aus der Zeit des späten 20. und frühen 21. Jahrhunderts, was zugleich deutlich stärkere archivarische Eingriffe in die Quellengestaltung erfordert, als das bei der analogen Über-lieferung der Fall war. Wenngleich diese Hürde sicherlich noch nicht abschließend genommen ist, so stellt sich gleich-zeitig die Frage: Wird die historische Wissenschaft und werden Archivnutzer*innen in der Lage sein, diese genuin elektronischen Unterlagen, die kein analoges Pendant kennen, zu interpre-tieren? Welche Instrumentarien und Werkzeuge liegen vor, um versiert born digitals kompe-tent einordnen und auswerten zu können? Sind die archivarischen Eingriffe hinreichend nach-vollziehbar, so dass die quellenkritische Analyse der Forschung nicht beeinträchtigt wird. Auch wenn es erste Ansätze dazu geben mag, so fehlt aus Sicht des Landesarchivs NRW eine um-fassende und methodengeleitete Quellenkunde für genuin elektronisches Archivgut, insbeson-dere aus der Verwaltung. Vielfach – so der Eindruck – sind diese Archivalien in der historischen Wissenschaft noch nicht bekannt oder man ist damit noch nicht vertraut. Das Landesarchiv NRW möchte sich daher gemeinsam mit Historiker*innen diesem Desiderat annehmen. Es ist be-strebt, die begonnene Bildung und Nutzung von elektronischer Überlieferung auch mit einer fachlich-theoretischen Diskussion zwischen Forschung und Archiven zu begleiten. Zu diesem Zweck organisiert das Landesarchiv NRW einen Workshop für und von Expert*innen aus der Geschichtswissenschaft und dem Archivwesen, um den quellenkritischen Diskurs zu ge-nuin digitaler Überlieferung zwischen Forschung und Archiven zu fördern und einen Impuls für die Entwicklung einer Quellenkunde zu geben. Dieser Workshop soll zum einen als Bestandsauf-nahme und zum anderen – idealiter – als Grundlage für eine Publikation dienen. Auf der Basis der Kenntnisse von Archivar*innen über die gängigen elektronischen Archivalien einerseits und durch das Bündeln vorhandener Ansätze geschichtswissenschaftlicher Auswertungsmethoden für born digitals andererseits sollen Überlegungen für eine Quellenkunde elektronischer Unterla-gen weiterentwickelt werden. Der Workshop grenzt sich insofern von den üblichen Herangehensweisen in den Digital Humani-ties ab, als dass Forschungsdaten, Digitalisate von analogem Archivgut, Datenbankanalysen und andere Methoden der Recherche in digitalen (Online-)Daten (Data Mining etc.) oder der digita-len Präsentation und Diskussion von Forschungsergebnissen nicht thematisiert werden. Zentral diskutiert werden soll das elektronische Archivgut, das den Großteil des genuin elektronischen Schriftguts aus den anbietungspflichtigen Behörden, also die neue und künftige Überlieferung der öffentlichen Verwaltung darstellt, nämlich elektronische Akten, Fachverfahren, ungeordnete Dateiablagen, daneben aber auch Informationen im Internet und in den Sozialen Medien. In der ersten Sektion „Einführendes und Grundlegendes“ werden Fragestellung und Themenzu-schnitt des Workshops dargelegt sowie die Terminologie aus zwei Perspektiven zur Diskussion gestellt. Ferner wird erörtert, worin die „Digitale Transformation“ in der Verwaltung besteht und was die Konsequenzen für die Generierung von genuin elektronischen Verwaltungsunterla-gen sind: Welche Daten und Informationen entstehen? Worin unterscheiden sich genuin elekt-ronische Unterlagen von den bekannten analogen Verwaltungsakten, was ist das spezifisch Digi-tale? Wie verändern sich Systematik und Aggregation von Verwaltungsdaten? In welchem Maße greifen Archive im Zuge der digitalen Überlieferungsbildung und der elektronischen Archivie-rung in die Daten ein? Welche Bedeutung kommt dabei den signifikanten Eigenschaften, den Metadaten und den Versionierungsangaben zu? In den Sektionen II und III stehen typische und spezifische digitale Objekttypen im Fokus hin-sichtlich der archivierten Formate und Kontexte sowie hinsichtlich der Methoden der quellen-kritischen Einordnung und quellenkundlichen Auswertung. Ausgehend von den Kenntnissen zu diesen Objekten soll u.a. Folgendes diskutiert werden: Welche technischen, verwaltungsorgani-satorischen und archivfachlichen Kenntnisse sind für eine methodenbasierte, wissenschaftliche Interpretation der ausgewählten Unterlagentypen als historische Quellen erforderlich? Welche Anforderungen sollten Archive erfüllen, damit eine quellenkritische Auswertung der elektroni-schen Überlieferung gewährleistet ist? Was muss ein „Werkzeugkasten“ beinhalten, damit er als methodenbasierte „Quellenkunde für genuin elektronisches Archivgut“ dienen und in die Ver-mittlung von Geschichtswissenschaft einfließen kann? Was wäre beispielsweise Inhalt eines Grundseminars „Quellenkunde genuin elektronischen Verwaltungsschriftguts“? Zu diskutieren ist, welche bisherigen „Werkzeuge“ können – ggf. leicht abgewandelt – auch auf born digitals angewandt werden, welche müssen neu entwickelt werden und was kann u.U. aufgrund der Digitalität der Quellen neu erforscht werden. In der Abschlussdiskussion soll neben einem Resümee ein Ausblick auf ein mögliches Publikati-onsprojekt gewagt werden, etwa: Was ist der Bedarf der Geschichtswissenschaft? Welche Art von Quellenkunde wird benötigt? Kann es ein gemeinsames Projekt für eine Quellenkunde ge-ben? Der zweitägige Workshop ist so gestaltet, dass die archivfachlichen Perspektiven mit denen der Geschichtswissenschaft eng verzahnt miteinander im Dialog stehen. Deshalb wird jedes Thema von zwei Impulsreferaten (à ca. 15-20 Minuten) je von einer/m Archivar*in und einer/m Histori-ker*in eingeleitet. In den verbleibenden ca. 30 Minuten ist Raum für die Diskussion. Anders als die vorhergehenden Sektionen ist die Sektion III als „Workshop im Workshop“ organisiert: Die quellenkritische Betrachtung von einerseits E-Akten und andererseits elektronischen Fachver-fahren wird von zwei Archivarinnen vorbereitet und durchgeführt. Daneben sollen gemeinsam konkrete Beispiele von elektronischen Unterlagen angeschaut und diskutiert werden. Die von Dr. Bischoff moderierte Abschlussdiskussion wird zunächst von einem Historiker mit einem Kommentar zur Tagung eingeleitet. [less ▲]

Public History and history didactics are two subdisciplines of history that focus on reaching the world outside the academy. Both put an emphasis on “practising” history while at the same time grounding practice on theoretical reflection and empirical research with the ultimate goal of developing the most effective strategies of reaching diverse audiences to enhance historical knowledge and understanding. This roundtable explores what we mean by international public history and by the internationalization of history didactics, drawing on initiatives such as The Italian Public History Manifesto (2016) issued by the Italian Association of Public History (Associazione Italiana di Public History (AIPH). Our discussion will revolve around questions such as How must we re-shape history didactics and public history so that we take full account of transnational, diasporic and other identities based on class, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or ability? How can we enhance knowledge building globally by embracing different local experiences and perceptions? How do we address imbalances and the traditional North American and European centredness of our subdisciplines? [less ▲]

Seit einigen Jahren hat die ostbelgische Regionalgeschichtsschreibung versucht, den von Philipp Ther geprägten Begriff des ‚Zwischenraums‘ für die Historiografie über diese belgisch-deutsche Grenzregion im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert fruchtbar zu machen. Diese konzeptionellen Überlegungen fanden ihren Niederschlag zunächst in der Buchreihe „Grenzerfahrungen. Eine Geschichte der Deutschsprachigen Gemeinschaft Belgiens“ und dann vor allem in der am C²DH entwickelten virtuellen Ausstellung www.zeitschichten.be (2020). Der erste Teil des Vortrags besteht aus einer Meta-Führung durch die zum 100. Jahrestag der Zugehörigkeit der Region zu Belgien entwickelte Online-Expo. In einem zweiten Schritt sollen auf der Grundlage einiger der darin genutzten Quellen Überlegungen dazu angestellt werden, ob sich die Geschichte Ostbelgiens auch als die eines popkulturellen Zwischenraums deuten lässt. Dabei standen der faktischen Hybridität der regionalen, ländlich geprägten Kultur oftmals von der Sehnsucht nach nationaler Eindeutigkeit geprägte Selbstzuschreibungen entgegen, die die Suche nach dem Platz der Ostbelgier in Belgien, zwischen Belgien und Deutschland und zwischen zwei großen westeuropäischen Sprachräumen widerspiegeln.

Modern cities all over the world are now more susceptible to flash floods as a result of a rise in the frequency and severity of meteorological events with significant precipitation. For minimizing the risks due to these hydro-meteorological hazards, reliable fore- and now-casting of severe precipitation has become essential. Water vapor can be measured along slant paths by network of ground-based GNSS stations, providing real-time, three-dimensional (3D) distributions of vapor concentrations at an affordable cost. Consequently, these data provide an invaluable additional source of knowledge for monitoring and predicting events with flash flood potential. But site-specific multipath (MP) effects at GNSS stations do affect incoming signals, particularly at low elevations, as is widely known. The bulk of GNSS products for meteorology up to now are based on estimates of ordinary zenith total delay and horizontal gradients with little sensitivity to azimuthal variations, thus these products may not be best suited for estimating 3D distributions of water vapor during storm events. Using slant delays directly, can overcome this lack of azimuthal information. However, at low elevations, this approach is more susceptible to multipath errors. A thunderstorm event which occurred over Turkey and adjacent countries on July 27, 2017, resulting in flash floods and severe infrastructure damage, is used as an example to explore the effects of multipath-corrected slant wet delay (SWD) estimations on monitoring extreme weather events. To reconstruct the one-way SWD, we first added phase residuals derived from the GNSS one-way post-fit observations, which represent the anisotropic component of the SWD. This can also be interpreted as a higher order inhomogeneity component, which is not resolved by ordinary zenith or gradient products. For the generation of site-specific MP correction maps, we stacked the post-fit residuals derived from our Precise Point Positioning (PPP) processing strategy because the MP errors in the GNSS phase observables can adversely impact the SWD along the direction of individual satellites. The spatial stacking was performed in congruent cells as a function of elevation and azimuth. This enables each cell to receive roughly the same number of residuals, providing a better stacking result. The stacking of residuals for a single cell over several days allows the detection and reduction of systematic errors; random errors are minimal because the averaging is done over a suitably sufficient chosen time span. Finally, the one-way SWD were enhanced by applying these MP correction maps for the analysis of the meteorological event. Our study revealed that the anisotropic component contributed up to 11% of one-way SWD estimates. Furthermore, the spatio-temporal changes in SWD as derived from GNSS closely matched the moisture field from the ERA5 re-analysis linked to this weather event. As it turns out, the MP correction maps may also provide a “kind of calibration” for uncalibrated or low-cost GNSS antennas, even for those in mobile phones, as these devices are highly susceptible to MP errors. In turn, this would allow the application of low-cost sensors to accurately estimate SWD for severe weather monitoring in urban regions. [less ▲]

To effectively cope with the intermittency of VRE, power systems will need different flexibility options. The future portfolio of flexibility options will differ among countries, as it will be determined by the political, economic, social, technological, legal, and environmental factors of a country. Thus, some countries might have a greater need for flexibility options than others. Generation and expansion planning for renewable power systems on a national level are complex and require large long-term investments. Therefore, it is crucial to estimate the "need for flexibility" in energy systems from a macro-level. By assessing relevant indicators (e.g., economic) and different boundary conditions (e.g., VRE capacity), power system planners, policymakers, operators, and regulators can evaluate the need for flexibility in power systems and prioritize the needed actions. Published research and international reports do not refer to the countries with the highest need for flexibility options in respective power systems. In this regard, the aim of this paper is to answer the following question: "Which countries in the world have the highest need for flexibility options from a macro-energy systems point of view?" To answer our question, first, we have identified relevant indicators from the literature that can help us to estimate the "need for flexibility" in national power systems. Second, we weighed the different indicators according to their importance by using the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) of the multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) process. Finally, this paper proposes a “global index for flexibility need” using these indicators. As for the results, countries were ranked in this index based on indicators and already show us the promising countries with the top 10 dominated by European countries. This index works as a macro-level assessment framework that provides the comparative position of countries with regard to the need for flexibility. This index will help technology providers and increase investor confidence to choose countries with the highest "flexibility need" for technology implementation. This will help relevant stakeholders to focus on key countries first to accelerate the integration of VRE and thus help the global energy transition. [less ▲]

On 24 February 2022, the armed forces of the Russian Federation launched an unprovoked full-scale invasion of Ukraine. This was an unprecedented act of aggression against a sovereign and independent country and goes against fundamental principles of international law. It has been strongly condemned by the international community, including the European Union. As of mid-May, over six million Ukrainian and international refugees are fleeing the war to neighbouring EU and third countries (including Moldova) and eight million people have been displaced internally. This massive inflow of Ukrainian refugees into the EU resulted in the Council adopting the implementing Decision 2022/382 of 4 March 2022, introducing temporary protection as a means of dealing with the crisis. This is the first time, that the Temporary Protection Directive has been triggered in the Member States. The EMN has collected information in relation to the Temporary Protection Directive implementation in Member States (e.g. registration) and how the rights conferred to the Beneficiaries of Temporary Protection are provided (e.g. accommodation, healthcare, education, social welfare, etc.) The objective of this workshop is to increase participants’ knowledge in handling information related to the implementation of TPD. The target audience are EMN Member States and the EMN Service Provider but participation is also open to Commission policy officers, EU MS officials and EU agencies. [less ▲]

Project WARLUX - Soldiers and their Communities in WWII: The Impact and Legacy of War Experiences in Luxembourg", at the Luxembourg Centre for Digital and Contemporary History (C²DH) of the University of Luxembourg researches the personal side of the history of Luxembourgish youth born between 1920 and 1927 who were enrolled into German services under the Nazi occupation of Luxembourg during World War II. The research focuses on personal testimonies and their individual war experience to uncover these men, women, and families' individual experiences. The Methodology includes a biographical approach to offer a micro-historical perspective on single actors to link individual life stories to home communities. WARLUX will analyse the individuals from their social environments, social background, or trajectories during the war and their life in the post-war period based on their biographies. But this is almost where the most significant challenge lies in avoiding pre-existing terminologies, e.g. Nazi terms. When analysing the dataset of contemporary Nazi documents and post-war documents, the sources describe the same objects and elements but require a different interpretation. When building a dataset for independent and objective research, it is crucial to distinguish between the various sources and make the data entries comprehensible. While for the Nazis, volunteers in the Waffen-SS were "exemplary fighters", in post-war Luxembourg, they were "traitors to the fatherland". The young men who deserted from the Wehrmacht during the war, "cowards" and "Wehrkraftzersetzer" for the Nazis, in peacetime "heroes" of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The project has worked with a relational database (nodegoat) so far but is reaching its limits. This database's strength lies in linking objects while assigning strict categories and dates but fails when it comes to flexible and uncertain or ambiguous data. In many sources, there are different variations of dates and circumstances of the targets under study. For example, the Nazi authorities introduced the conscription law in Luxembourg on 30 August 1942. Every man born between 1920 and 1927 was called to register on the conscription lists. Therefore, men who enlisted in the Wehrmacht before this date are considered volunteers, which completely changed their status as mentioned during the war and after returning home. Mapping this scheme in a data model seems "easy" - date of enlistment XX, and then building the category of volunteer yes/no. But as the data repeatedly shows, it is more complex than expected. Volunteers who joined the German forces before August 1942 tried to avoid their "real" enlistment and changed it to an earlier date (reporting to the authorities) because they were aware of the severe consequences they and their families faced after the surrender of the Nazi forces. There are now two dates in the dataset. The relational structure only allows one date for the volunteer "tab". If I had chosen only one date, this case would have been overlooked. The analysis requires a flexible and changeable dataset where the fixed points can be changed depending on the research question. It is always a challenge in historical research. Still, due to the mass data (10,000 objects/persons) that WARLUX uses, it needs a flexible and smooth data structure and, on the other hand, one that is as stringent and reliable as possible.

After the Second World War, in line with its new strategic choice Luxembourg resolutely set out on the road to international multilateralism and European integration, being in 1951 one of the six founding members of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), and in 1952 - the workplace of the newly established European Community institutions. Since then, Luxembourg has played and continues to act as a mediator and a force for ideas in the EU, either as a member State, or through some of its leaders (including Joseph Bech, Pierre Werner, Gaston Thorn, Jacques Santer, Jean-Claude Juncker). Based on a wide range of sources from public and private archives, this presentation aims to illustrate how the Grand-Duchy had become a master of small states diplomacy and a consensus builder in the European integration history, and to demonstrate that the influential nature if its leadership gave Luxembourg a role that far outweighed the country’s socio-economic impact.

Beginning in the 20th century, Luxembourg experienced several periods of transition. The largely agriculture-based economy became industrialized, driven by a powerful steel industry which remained the dominant sector from the immediate post-Second World War years to the mid-1970s. In 1974 the steel industry began to decline, marking the end of the ‘Trente Glorieuses’. Luxembourg was forced to implement considerable structural changes and embarked on its second major transition, from an industrial economy to a service economy based on the financial sector. To guarantee its future position in a competitive globalized environment, the country needed to diversify its economy by focusing on state-of-the-art fields with high added value, while preserving the competitiveness of the financial sector. Luxembourg continued to prioritize innovation as the main driver of sustainable and inclusive growth, embarking on its digital transition in order to build a "smart nation". [less ▲]

Council Regulation No 1024/2013 (‘SSM Regulation’ or ‘SSMR’) confers exclusive competence on the ECB to carry out specific supervisory tasks with regard to credit institutions established in the Euro Area Member States. When the ECB carries out its supervisory tasks, it is “considered, as appropriate, the competent authority or the designated authority in the participating Member States as established by the relevant Union law”. Any reference made in the CRD IV to a National competent authority (NCA) shall thus be read as a reference to the ECB whenever the ECB is competent. However, this does not turn the ECB into a super NCA. Although the SSMR has granted the ECB most of the powers necessary to carry out its new tasks, the ECB lacks certain specific powers that national laws have given to national supervisors. Filling this gap and ensuring a high level of consistency in the exercise of prudential supervision require the definition of complex administrative composite procedures where the identification of responsibility and accountability of the ECB and the NCAs is particularly blurred. Ten years after the creation of the SSM, it will be time to consider a number of developments in the legal framework, as this contribution will discuss in conclusion. [less ▲]

The purpose of our Hivi research project (https://hivi.uni.lu) is to historicise and to contextualise online virality through the different ages of the Web. This allows to grasp the evolution of digital cultures, as well as the changes of platforms, audience, formats, and the cross-platform, transnational and transmedia circulations of Internet phenomena (memes, online challenges, etc.). There are also continuities of practices to be retrieved, such as trolling, participation and remix. Even in the short time of the history of the Web, viral phenomena have undergone rapid and constant changes, due to the evolution of the Web (appearance or disappearance of platforms and web sites, changes of interfaces, etc.), of digital practices (may it be related to content production or consumption), and of the phenomena themselves, which are flexible, adaptable and versatile. To reflect on the temporalities and spatialities of these ephemeral and changing phenomena, this talk will present the sources and tools we are currently using, the methodological challenges we are also facing while exploring a large amount of data and sources (may it be on the living or archived web).

From the Hampster Dance, All your Base are belong to us and the Dancing Baby in the second half of the 1990s to Bernie’s mittens at the US presidential inauguration and the image macros of the Evergreen blocked in the Suez Canal, through Disaster Girl or Distracted Boyfriend to name but a few, memes and Internet phenomena have become in the last twenty years an important part of our digital cultures (Shifman, 2014). After presenting why historicising virality matters (which is the purpose of our Hivi research project supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund and conducted at the University of Luxembourg, https://hivi.uni.lu), this talk will focus on the challenges related to sources. Historicising online virality requires to first acknowledge how difficult it is to build corpora and develop chronological views in the vast and heterogeneous amount of data lakes and sources available on the live web and in web archives. All these repositories preserve viral content in a very different manner, covering different frames and periods, while the actors who come into play have different size and motivations, from giant platforms (Twitter, YouTube - see Burgess and Green 2018, etc.) to small communities, through heritagisation platform (i.e. Know Your Meme - see Pettis, 2021) and web archives. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the many levels of politics, curation and agencies at stake when studying the history and heritagisation of memes and Internet phenomena and their impact. Finally, temporalities and scales are also challenging, and scalability is key for studying the spreadability of digital contents, notably in a long-term perspective. There is a constant need for balancing between several scales to study circulation and flow (Jenkins, 2009), processes, participation (Milner, 2018) and appropriation, while recontextualizing memes and Internet phenomena in their complex and changing environments (changes of platforms, of participation, of audience, of meaning...).

In political terms, European integration and multilateral cooperation enabled Luxembourg to become an equal partner in the decision-making processes and leadership of European organizations. In economic terms, these features gave the country the tools it needed to forge a development model that could underpin the creative growth of its social market economy, while preserving the majority of its vital interests—particularly the steel industry and the financial centre—over the long term. Focusing primarily on the 1970 Werner Report, which served as a blueprint for the European single currency - the euro - the presentation examines a key period in European integration history and one of the major European achievements of Luxembourg and of Pierre Werner (29 December 1913– 24 June 2002), former Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Foreign Minister of Luxembourg, who left his mark on the future of his country and is unanimously recognised as one of the architects of Economic and Monetary Union.

This contribution discusses a formalism for data-driven modelling of advanced materials with a special interest in the large deformation response of three-dimensional specimens. The underlying hyperelastic deformation problem is formulated in the principal space using principal stretches and principal stresses. The associated constitutive relation is consequently using principal quantities and captured by the parameter-free representation using a deep neural network. The presentation investigates certain physics-motivated requirements imposed on the architecture of the artificial neural network such as symmetry and objectivity criteria. The training phase of the constitutive ANN operator employs a loss function which ensures the identified consistency conditions. The prediction phase exploits a constitutive blending approach to stabilise the numerical solution procedure in the presence of typically local stretch/stress extrema. The presented approach is implemented using FEniCS and builds on symbolic representation of the ANN operator based on the Unified Form Language (UFL). The neural network is constructed, trained, and tested using PyTorch. Numerical benchmarks demonstrate the ability of the presented formalism to describe non-trivial load-deformation trajectories of 3D test specimens. [less ▲]

As famous as the quotation by Lawrence Lessing “Code is law”, the sentence by David Clark at a meeting at the IETF in 1992 “We reject kings, presidents and voting, we believe in rough consensus and running code” became a “motto for Internet standardization” (Russell, 2006) that invites us to have a look at the past relationships and intertwinements between networks design and governance. From the 1970s topics related to distribution and openness have become key in networks infrastructures, while complementary issues related to asymmetries and multi-stakeholderism (Raymond and DeNardis 2015) have been emphasized in the 1990s and 2000s, and notably during the WSIS in Tunis and Geneva. Research related to Internet governance (Mueller and Badiei, 2020; Musiani, Schafer, 2021) has also brought to the table strong issues related to agencies, privacy, and many others that have strongly followed the development of networks and their uses as well as controversies related to net neutrality or information flows for example (DeNardis, 2020). This presentation will go through several historical case studies and rethink them through the lens of infrastructure design and governance, from Arpanet in the 1970s, XNS and then the OSI (Russell, 2014), to web archives (Schafer, Winters 2021) and research infrastructures today, through past designs and attempts, related to the Web and Xanadu, the Minitel (Schafer, Thierry, 2012; Mailland, Driscoll, 2017), platforms like Wuala (Musiani, 2022) and Wikipedia (Cardon and Levrel, 2009). This will allow us to explore some notions and approach related to closure, secret, incentives, empowerment, while finally moving from “governance” to “good governance” and its challenges. [less ▲]

Les phénomènes viraux et en particulier les gifs et les mèmes ont donné lieu à des études (par H. Jenkins, L. Shifman, R. Milner, D. Kaplan et N. Nova, J. Eppink, A. Wagener et bien d’autres) qui éclairent les phénomènes de circulation, participation, partage (cf. également les recherches de N. John) et transformation au sein des cultures numériques. Les phénomènes viraux sont bien sûr présents dès les débuts du Web et certains voient dans les émoticones ou la loi de Godwin leurs premières occurrences (J. McGrath). La fin des années 1990 marque par ailleurs le succès du Dancing Baby, de la Hampster Dance ou de All Your Base Are Belong To Us. Les réseaux socio-numériques ont accéléré ces circulations, par ailleurs transplateformes, tout en mettant au défi le chercheur qui souhaite appréhender et historiciser la viralité. C’est notamment l’ambition du projet HIVI (A history of Online Virality) à l’université du Luxembourg (2021-2024). Sans surprise un premier défi est celui des archives et de la constitution de corpus. La présentation les abordera autour de trois axes: tout d’abord le défi de la masse et de l’hétérogénéité des sources, de leur périmètre, mais aussi l’inégale préservation des phénomènes Internet, ainsi que la pluralité des espaces de patrimonialisation et modes de curation seront présentés; ensuite nous nous intéresserons plus particulièrement aux sources nativement numériques conservées dans les archives du Web, et leurs défis en termes de préservation, recherchabilité, contextualisation. Enfin des enjeux méthodologiques, notamment liés aux temporalités et spatialités seront soulevés, pour engager la discussion sur les apports mais aussi les limites des sources nativement numériques.

The Werner Committee's work was characterised by political and doctrinal differences between “economists” (the countries with weak currencies – France, Belgium and, to a certain extent, Italy) and “monetarists” (the countries with strong currencies – Germany and the Netherlands)– namely, those who saw monetary integration as a means of economic integration and those for whom it was the ultimate goal. The conflict was ultimately resolved by the adoption of a parallel approach between economic cooperation and monetary coordination in the Member States, a principle of equilibrium on the basis of which Pierre Werner was able to secure a consensus. This paper makes extensive use of Pierre Werner’s previously unpublished archives and a collection of original oral history accounts with key players of European monetary integration. An interdisciplinary approach, together with digital methodologies (network analysis and the TXM corpus analysis framework), will be used to explore the negotiations within the Werner Committee by examining the dynamics between group members, their emerging views on EMU, their political commitment to a European currency, the similarities and differences between their ideas, their personal networks, the influence of their respective countries, their theoretical and methodological input and their contribution to the political agreement.

Der historische Atlas der Stadt Luxemburg wurde im Unterschied zu bisher veröffentlichten Atlanten anderer Städte allein für eine Veröffentlichung im Internet konzipiert. Seit 2019 ist er im Internet auf der Seite luxatlas.lu zugänglich und wurde seither kontinuierlich ausgebaut, überarbeitet und verbessert, sowohl technisch als auch inhaltlich. Aktuell bietet sich Nutzern die Möglichkeit, eine Vielzahl historischer Altkarten und Luftbilder der Stadt Luxemburg aus dem Zeitraum zwischen 1560 und 2017 in beliebig wählbaren Zoomstufen zu betrachten und auf transparenten Ebenen passgenau übereinanderliegend miteinander zu vergleichen. Ergänzend lassen sich historische Fotos und Ansichten sowie erläuternde Texte zur Stadtgeschichte und zu ausgewählten Gebäuden oder anderen Infrastrukturelementen einblenden. Der Luxatlas dokumentiert historische Veränderungsprozesse diachron für Forschungszwecke. Dabei steht die reine Visualisierung von Forschungsergebnissen aber nicht im Vordergrund. Vielmehr dient der Atlas selbst als Instrument zur Gewinnung neuen Wissens. Erst durch die Überlagerung verschiedener kartographischer Zeitschichten und die Verknüpfung von historischen, architektonischen, demografischen, wirtschaftlichen und städtebaulichen Informationen wird die Verteilung bestimmter räumlicher Phänomene sichtbar und kann von Nutzern interpretiert und analysiert werden. Auf diese Weise wird die interaktive Karte zu einem zentralen Instrument des Wissenserwerbs. Um die Vorteile einer Webpublikation bestmöglich umzusetzen, basiert der Luxatlas auf Open-Source-Software. Dies ermöglicht die Entwicklung maßgeschneiderter WebGIS-Anwendungen für die spezifischen Anforderungen des Projektes. Der Vortag wird neben der Projektvorstellung auch die methodischen und quellenkritischen Herausforderungen beleuchten und den geplanten weiteren Ausbau zur Diskussion stellen. [less ▲]

Die Studiengänge an der Universität Luxemburg sind überwiegend mehrsprachig. Vor diesem Hintergrund sind die mehrsprachigen Kompetenzen unserer studentischen Hilfskräfte im Sprachenzentrum von zentraler Bedeutung. In diesem Zusammenhang werden den Studierenden Peer-Tutoring- und Tandemprogramme angeboten, um sie bei ihrem Integrationsprozess in unser Universitätssystem zu unterstützen. Wir haben im Rahmen eines gemeinsamen Kurses der sechs Sprachzentren der Grenzuniversitäten, der Studierende sprachlich und kulturell auf eine zukünftige Mobilität vorbereiten, ein Tandemmodul integriert, das diese Studierenden zur gegenseitigen Hilfe unter Gleichaltrigen anregen soll. Wenn sich Tandems ergeben sollten, schulen wir unsere studentischen Hilfskräfte darin, Gruppen bei der Durchführung von Tandem-Aktivitäten zu begleiten. Die Studierenden müssen sich auf drei bzw. vier Aktivitäten einigen, die sie gemeinsam durchführen. Um den Nutzen dieser Partnerschaft zwischen Studierenden und studentischen Hilfskräften zu maximieren, werden wir in dieser Mitteilung über die Entwicklung einer Vorgehensweise und eine Verstärkung der Begleitinstrumente nachdenken, die darauf abzielen, ihre "Tandem-Sitzungen" in Gruppen zu strukturieren.
