The multitude of chemicals to which we are exposed is ever increasing, with over 110 million chemicals in the largest open chemical databases, over 350,000 in global use inventories, and over 70,000 estimated to be in household use alone. Detectable molecules in exposomics can be captured using non-target high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), but despite the size of the chemical space, scientists cannot yet identify most of the tens of thousands of features in each sample, leading to critical bottlenecks in identification and data interpretation. This talk will cover European and worldwide community initiatives and resources to help connect environmental expert knowledge and observations towards a better understanding of the exposome, including various open cheminformatics and computational mass spectrometry approaches such as the NORMAN Suspect List Exchange, MassBank, MetFrag and PubChemLite for Exposomics.

The Impact and Legacy of War Experiences in 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. Using a relational database to represent their war experiences, we face several challenges, such as a data structure that is too rigid and strict to “map” the fluid and unpredictable life patterns of our study subjects. We developed a data model where we treat different life stations (military unit, POW camp etc.) as equal data levels like our recruits (as persons). Each “life station” or event we treat as a “person” and create a separate “biography” to include all relevant data. Afterwards, we link the life stations or events with the actual person in the database. The aim of my talk will be the “translation” of lives, with its twists and turns into a static data set such as a relational database to map the individual war experiences of our study object.

In this paper, a novel theoretical framework is proposed to organize and integrate previous empirical findings on early development of analogical transfer. Transferring knowledge across situations is a pivotal skill in dynamically changing environments that humans inhabit and shape. This ability drives human problem solving and innovativeness, as it allows for generalizing knowledge acquired in familiar, past solutions to any unfamiliar, present situation. The ability to detect common functional features and disregard other, functionally irrelevant information begins to develop in the first year of life, and markedly improves in toddlerhood and the preschool years. Although the ability to transfer knowledge across situations has been repeatedly investigated in toddlers and preschoolers over the last decades, these investigations lacked a unifying framework, obscuring the developmental timing of flexible problem solving. In this paper, a unifying framework is proposed and discussed in relation to previous findings, gaps in current state of knowledge and implications for concrete educational interventions. This framework builds on a distinction between “simple” and “complex” transfers. Although all generalization tasks require prioritizing relevant information over irrelevant information, the irrelevant information may play two different roles in transferring knowledge, namely, a distracting or a misleading one. Distracting information was consistently irrelevant under similar past circumstances and remains irrelevant in the present. Misleading information was relevant under similar past circumstances but is now irrelevant and therefore competes with the truly relevant information. Previous research suggests that the ability to disregard misleading information is more difficult, draws differently on executive functions and most likely develops later than the ability to disregard distracting information. The current paper furthers current understanding of how early the abilities critical to human behavioural flexibility develop. In the era of individual engagement in politics and social media, the ability to disregard misleading information is perhaps more important than ever before. Furthermore, focusing on individual problem-solving flexibility, promoted in the current project, has implications for changes in assessment of child’s achievement and progress in the schooling system. Since accumulating information is somewhat prioritized over operating on such information, continuity between problem solving at the preschool level and critical thinking in adolescence may not be secured. There is also little space for assessment of individual, not standardized development. Shifting the current emphasis toward individual flexibility could, at least to some extent, hinder grouping children into performing below, on and above average and promote focusing on individual course of development, both in typically and atypically developing children.

This lecture contained the results concerning the effect of the professional development course in translanguaging pedagogy on preschool teachers, parents, and children in Luxembourg. The mixed-method design revealed positive effects based on the data from the teacher questionnaires, focus groups, and interviews with teachers, then parent questionnaires and interviews with parents, and tests in literacy and numeracy in school and home languages, and video observations with children. In this lecture I also presented the publications for parents (the book Sumak), for children (Mara's song with the CD), and the website for teachers on translanguaging activities (www.transla-program.org).

L'histoire architecturale du siège de la Banque Générale du Luxembourg (BGL), est intimement liée à l’histoire urbanistique de la ville de Luxembourg. Le choix du quartier, du boulevard ou de la rue dans lequel la Banque va s'implanter a toute sa signification et n’est pas dû au hasard. Les choix architecturaux, l’emplacement d’un siège deviennent-ils alors des éléments qui contribuent à façonner l'identité d'une banque ? Ou est-ce que les mutations urbaines et les évolutions du secteur bancaire influencent-elles le style de la construction ? Tout au long de son histoire, depuis ses débuts en 1919 jusqu’à nos jours, les bâtiments du siège de la BGL situés dans le centre-ville et au Kirchberg ont connu plusieurs vies pour rester compétitifs dans un monde bancaire qui se crée et se cherche. Concomitant à l’émergence de la place financière dans le paysage urbain luxembourgeois, la Banque a dû aussi continuellement se réinventer. À travers un siècle riche en événements, le narratif que les dirigeants de la Banque ont souhaité véhiculer à travers la dimension architecturale du siège a donc aussi évolué. Il fallait bien évidemment se démarquer de la concurrence, des autres institutions financières établies dans des bâtisses plus ou moins prestigieuses. Les multiples mutations architecturales du siège, qu’il s’agisse d’agrandissements, de transformations ou de reconstructions, en témoignent. [less ▲]

Analogical transfer is a pivotal skill early in life and has been repeatedly investigated by developmental psychologists. Recently, it was shown that already 2.5-year-olds are capable of such transfers, even with a 24-hour delay between two analogical situations [1; cf. 2, 3]. This ability, however, is poorly reflected in early curricula, failing to build upon early problem- solving flexibility. In this study, analogical transfer of relevant information despite irrelevant, distracting or misleading information is investigated in 2.5- to 5.5-year-olds. Children participate in a play session at day-care facilities and preschools, where they attempt to transfer relevant tool-use knowledge across two analogical problems despite a distracting or a misleading problem solved in between. Preliminary results suggest that 2.5-to-5.5-year-olds are capable of discarding both distracting and misleading information in analogical transfers. Further data collection should show whether this ability correlates with general intelligence, executive function, and bi-/multilingualism. [less ▲]

Ältere Erwachsene galten ungeachtet der großen Heterogenität dieser Altersgruppe während der COVID-19-Pandemie als Risikogruppe. Während eine Reduzierung der persönlichen Kontakte vor allem in den ersten Monaten der Pandemie notwendig war, um das Virus einzudämmen und vulnerable Personen vor Ansteckung zu schützen, wurden schnell Bedenken hinsichtlich der sekundären Auswirkungen dieser Maßnahmen auf das subjektive Wohlbefinden geäußert. Der vorliegende Beitrag befasst sich damit, wie ältere Erwachsene die COVID-19 Pandemie und die damit verbundenen Einschränkungen selbst erlebten. Dabei wird Bezug auf zwei Studien genommen, die 2020 in Luxemburg durchgeführt wurden – CRISIS und PAN-VAL. Ziel des vom FNR finanzierten CRISIS-Projekts war es, herauszufinden, wie ältere Erwachsene (60+) in Luxemburg die Sicherheitsmaßnahmen und deren Kommunikation an die Öffentlichkeit während der ersten Monate der Pandemie erlebten. Dabei wurden Daten von unabhängig lebenden Personen zu zwei Messzeitpunkten (N = 611 im Juni und N = 523 im Oktober 2020) erhoben sowie N = 84 Personen in Altersheimen befragt. Die vom Ministerium für Familie und Integration geförderte Studie PAN-VAL befasste sich mit dem aktiven Altern von Luxemburgern und Nicht-Luxemburgern. Im Dezember 2020 wurden N = 1000 in Luxemburg lebende Personen ab 50 Jahre befragt, wobei neben der Lebenszufriedenheit, dem sozialen Eingebundensein und gemeinschaftlichen Aktivitäten auch das Erleben von Einsamkeit vor und seit der Corona-Pandemie erfasst wurde. Die vorliegenden Analysen konzentrieren sich auf die selbstberichtete Resilienz, Einsamkeitserleben und subjektives Wohlbefinden älterer Menschen sowie auf deren Bedingungsfaktoren während der Pandemie.

This talk has two parts. It will first attempt to frame what a history of digital history might look like, by focusing on hybridity as a key characteristic of historical research, seen as some form of integrating newly emerging tools, technologies, materials, and/or practices in historical research, and mapped and qualified according to the main phases of historical research. My main argument here is that, in order to ground our current ‘digital’ practices and learn from past experiences and expertise, we need an answer to the question: what were, and are, the continuities and ruptures in the use and uptake of new technologies in historical research, and in the debates that accompanied them? The paper will then proceed to outline what groundwork is necessary to explore digital history’s forgotten roots: a basic overview of the field’s different spatio-temporal trajectories and the networks of computing historians in the pre-PC and early PC period. A key focal point for such a reconstruction are the DH conferences that took place in the 1960s and 1970s, either as singular events or strands of bigger conferences such as the International Congress of Historical Sciences in Moscow in 1970, and later those that were organised under the aegis of the Association for History and Computing (AHC, 1987-2001) and its national member organisations. By studying which scholars attended and where they came from, and by linking that to the topics and methods that were discussed, it will be possible to chart, over time, shifting geographical, topical and methodological developments. In the second part of my paper, I will provide the first results of a concrete case study which is part of this broader endeavour, namely a web archaeology of the old AHC website and H-NET Discussion List for History and Computing (now: H-Digital History).

Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) identify the genomic variations that are statistically associated with a particular phenotype (e.g., a disease). GWAS results, i.e., statistics, benefit research and personalized medicine. The confidence in GWAS increases with the number of genomesanalyzed, which encourages federated computations where biocenters periodically include newly sequenced genomes. However, for legal and economical reasons, this collaboration can only happen if a release of GWAS results never jeopardizes the genomic privacy of data donors, if biocenters retain ownership and cannot learn each others’ data. Furthermore, given the reduced cost of sequencing DNA nowadays, there is now a need to update GWAS results in a dynamic manner, while enabling donors to withdraw consent at any time. Therefore, two challenges need to be simultaneously addressed to enable federated and dynamic GWAS: (i) the computation of GWAS statistics must rely on secure and privacy-preserving methods; and (ii) GWAS results that are publicly released should not allow any form of privacy attack. In this talk, we will introduce the problem we consider in more detail and present DyPS, the framework we have designed and recently presented at the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS). We refer the reader to the full paper1 for the details we cannot cover in this short version. [less ▲]

This roundtable, which is organized by the WARCnet network and chaired by Valérie Schafer (C2DH, University of Luxembourg), aims to shed light on the issues, challenges, values and limits of web archiving during the COVID crisis. It will combine analysis by web archivists and scholars and entwine analysis of web archiving practices and preserved web content, in order to address several key issues related to the conference, such as the “silences” and “noises” of these archives. The first part of the roundtable will focus on web archives collections that have been created during the COVID-19 crisis by many institutions throughout Europe. Friedel Geeraert (The State Archives of Belgium and the Royal Library of Belgium) will provide a short comparative overview of the strategies of web archiving institutions in Europe, that the team documented through an oral history campaign, while Nicola Bingham (The British Library, UK) will offer more precise overviews of the collections that were gathered respectively by the UK Web Archive and the IIPC (International Internet Preservation Consortium). Claude Mussou (Ina THEQUE, France) will explore the archiving of Twitter at the Institut national de l’audiovisuel (France). Niels Brügger (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Jane Winters (SAS, University of London) will then discuss memories and heritage of the COVID-crisis through the lens of these web archives. Finally the last part will focus on research approaches, notably close and distant reading, and the collective and individual traces, social and political expressions at stake in these web archives: Valérie Schafer will comment on the distant reading approach within these archives. Sophie Gebeil (Aix-Marseille University, France) will underline issues related to “carers” and social struggles. Valérie Schafer will also briefly mention the gendered approach of the COVID crisis that the working group is currently conducting. This roundtable will be followed by a discussion with the audience in order to deepen the topics that are at the core of the conference, whether it be loss, preservation, the political “we”, feelings, etc. [less ▲]

As a relatively young and constantly emerging field, the Digital Humanities (DH) encompasses a large group of early career researchers with different backgrounds and diverse career paths. Digital Medieval Studies as a subfield of DH is characterised by various disciplines as well as a high number of international collaborations and is populated by scholars with different educational backgrounds: from scholars trained as medievalists who implemented digital components only during their postgrad studies to scholars who approached medieval studies through their technical skills. This round table discussion brings together early career scholars from this domain on the border between traditional humanities research and DH to discuss the challenges and opportunities of their diverse career paths.

Dans le contexte des nouvelles relations internationales forgées par la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le Grand-Duché de Luxembourg s’affirme comme un acteur de marque du multilatéralisme, en tant que membre fondateur de la plupart des grandes institutions internationales - l’Organisation des Nations unies (1945), l’Organisation du traité de l’Atlantique du Nord (1949), le Conseil de l’Europe (1949),- ainsi que de l’intégration européenne, à commencer par la Communauté européenne du Charbon et de l’Acier (1951), dont les premières institutions sont accueillies à Luxembourg. L’adhésion aux systèmes d’alliances atlantique et européennes s’accompagne d’une nouvelle politique extérieure luxembourgeoise sous l’impulsion du légendaire ministre des Affaires étrangères Joseph Bech (1887-1975). Après la Libération, il porte une attention particulière à l’organisation institutionnelle du ministère des Affaires étrangères, à la professionnalisation de la diplomatie nationale et à la formation d’un corps diplomatique d’excellence, pour représenter le pays dans le monde, pour promouvoir ses valeurs et pour défendre ses intérêts à travers la coopération internationale bi- et multilatérale.

Despite its small size in terms of geography (2,586km2) and population (626,100 people on 1 January 2020), Luxembourg has an open, dynamic, innovative economy that is one of the most successful at international level – in 2019 its GDP per capita was 261% the European average and its growth rate was the third highest of the EU’s then 28 Member States – and also one of the least affected by the COVID-19 crisis. This can be explained by its sector-based structure, in which activities and services related to the financial centre, together with information and communication technologies, transport and non-market services, play a key role; by the existence of a highly qualified, multilingual, mobile (cross-border) workforce; and also by the proactive economic policy pursued by the country’s authorities throughout its history. Looking back, we can see that Luxembourg has gone through several transitions and dealt with a number of serious crises. Following on from the predominantly rural economy of the 19th century, the first half of the 20th century was characterised by an industrial economy based on the iron and steel industry and the latter part of the century by a service-based economy centred around the financial centre, ultimately leading to the emergence of an information and knowledge economy which is gradually taking shape in the 21st century.

The aim of the round table is to bring together specialists in digital history and experts who use digital tools in historical research and education. History as an academic field is undergoing major changes as a result of the transformative impact of digital technologies. These technologies affect the very nature of sources, the practice of data collection and processing, and also the way in which historical knowledge is acquired and disseminated. The task of defining “digital history” has given rise to much debate and discussion, but developing an understanding of the field and the wide-ranging potential for interaction between history and digital technologies can offer insights into the future development of historical research and education. Analysing the challenges and opportunities of this interdisciplinary union can inform and enrich the various cultures within digital history and beyond. A number of prominent speakers from different cultures of digital history and related disciplines will participate in the round table: Prof. Leonid Borodkin is a Professor of the History Faculty of Lomonosov Moscow State University, the Chair of the Department for Historical Information Science, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Science (Russia). Prof. Hannu Salmi is a Professor of Cultural History at the University of Turku and has been Academy Professor since 2017 (Finland). Prof. Peter Gautschi is a Professor of History Education, Head of the Lucerne Institute of History Education and Memory Cultures, UTE Lucerne (Switzerland). Prof. Valérie Schafer has been a Professor in Contemporary European History at the C²DH (Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History) at the University of Luxembourg since February 2018. Dr Mareike König is deputy director of the German Historical Institute in Paris. She is also director of its library and its digital humanities department. The round table will be organised and moderated by Nadezhda Povroznik (Center for Digital Humanities) and Frédéric Clavert (C²DH). [less ▲]

Abstract_THE ORIGINS OF THE EUROPEAN IDEA Despite its historical divisions, Europe was built on a shared set of ideas, ranging from Greco-Latin humanism to the principles of the French Revolution. Before the people of Europe achieved the unification of their continent by the force of law, several other figures – emperors, princes and conquerors – envisaged a single space “ruled by one Crown”. Over the centuries, many philosophers, writers and legal experts developed theories on the rapprochement of the peoples of Europe. [less ▲]

This research seminar aims to explicitly consider that research happens in context. This presentation proposes to address the topic of born-digital heritage and in particular of web archives in context. It aims to question the past, present and future paths of research based on the plethora of born-digital sources that developed from the mid-1990s. Analysis of web archives requires both taking into account the very shaping of these archives - e.g. web archiving in context - and placing research on these web archives in context, from the early studies of the 2000s which focused on the nature of web archives themselves and the methods for studying them to current research that takes them as sources for exploring digital cultures. Thus, the first two parts of our presentation, devoted respectively to the history of web archiving and of web archives in research, will explore the multiple contextual elements at work. These may be related to the Web itself and its evolution, to institutional policies, or to crawling and analysis tools, and understanding them is crucial for addressing the current and future challenges that will arise for researchers, whether they concern transnational approaches, ethical issues or a claim for enhanced contextualization. In conclusion we will broaden the question to digital humanities, and consider why web archive studies have remained relatively marginalised in digital humanities discourse. [less ▲]

For as long as new preservation technologies and computing machines have been developed, the question of their utility and uptake in historical research practices has been debated. Yet, the very fact that historical knowledge production has always been affected by new and emerging technologies is often forgotten. Similarly, the fact that key epistemological and methodological questions in what we now call ‘digital history’ were already debated decades ago by earlier generations of computing historians (analogue and digital) is often overlooked. There is a lack of transmission of accumulated knowledge from the past and it sometimes seems as if every new generation of historians rediscovers the promise of ‘digital history’, with all of its attending hopes, visions and ambitions for reinventing and reshaping historical research. In order to ground our current ‘digital’ practices and learn from past experiences and expertise, we need to contextualise and qualify what is new and what is not. In other words, we need an answer to the question: what were, and are, the continuities and ruptures in the use and uptake of new technologies in historical research, and in the debates that accompanied them? This paper is an attempt to frame what such a history of digital history might look like. It will do so by focusing on hybridity as a key characteristic of historical research. Hybridity, seen as some form of integrating newly emerging tools, technologies, materials, and/or practices in historical research, has a long history that predates the advent of computers. In my paper I will map and qualify that history according to the main phases of historical research: data & information gathering, processing, analysis and dissemination. Importantly, the speed, enthusiasm and rate of the uptake of new technologies in historical research differs and has differed significantly across these phases, in space as well as time. The paper will conclude by outlining what groundwork is necessary to explore digital history’s forgotten roots: a basic overview of the field’s different spatio-temporal trajectories and the networks of computing historians in the pre-PC and early PC period.

Préfigurée par la Déclaration que Robert Schuman prononce le 9 mai 1950, la Communauté européenne du Charbon et de l’Acier (CECA) devient réalité le 18 avril 1951, lorsque les représentants de six États fondateurs – Allemagne, Belgique, France, Italie, Luxembourg et Pays-Bas – concluent, pour une durée de 50 ans, le traité de Paris. L’architecture institutionnelle de cette première communauté européenne dessine l’actuel équilibre des pouvoirs de l’Union européenne reposant sur: la Haute Autorité (la Commission européenne) ; le Conseil spécial de ministres; l’Assemblée commune (le Parlement européen); la Cour de justice – indépendante. En juillet 1952, Luxembourg-ville est choisie comme lieu de travail provisoire de la CECA. Dès le 10 août 1952, la Haute Autorité s’installe dans le bâtiment qui abrite ac-tuellement la Spuerkeess. Le 10 décembre, la Cour de justice de la CECA tient sa séance d’ouverture solennelle au Cercle Municipal, à la place d’Armes. Luxembourg-ville devient siège européen aux côtés de Strasbourg (qui accueille l’Assemblée commune) et de Bruxelles, qui s’y rajoute en 1958, après la création de la Communauté économique européenne et l’Euratom. La fusion des exécutifs com-munautaires (1965) confirme Luxembourg comme siège judiciaire et financier européen. Ce n’est qu’en 1992 que le Conseil européen d’Édimbourg consacre la tripolarité Luxembourg – Bruxelles – Strasbourg comme « capitales permanentes de l’Union européenne. [less ▲]

La dernière décennie du 20e siècle fut marquée par la mise en place d’un outil devenu indispensable aux historiens qui étudient l’hagiographie latine d’avant 1500 et qui s’intéressent à ses vecteurs manuscrits. Née de l’initiative visionnaire de Guy Philippart et de son équipe, ainsi que d’une collaboration avec la Société des Bollandistes, la base de données BHLms entendait rendre la Bibliotheca Hagiographica Latina et ses Supplementa, couplés à l’ensemble des catalogues de manuscrits hagiographiques bollandiens, instantanément interrogeables . Deux décennies plus tard, le projet est toujours vivace et s’apprête à connaître une seconde vie sur les serveurs de l’Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes . Cependant, si les informations collectées, présentées sous la forme d’une interface graphique, permettent à tout utilisateur d’obtenir rapidement des renseignements sur un texte donné (identifié par un n° BHL) et les manuscrits qui le contiennent, les données brutes de la base n’avaient à ce jour jamais été exploitées de façon globale. C’est une analyse de ce genre que nous proposons ici, par le biais de méthodes quantitatives, et notamment d’outils d’apprentissage automatique (machine learning) . Pour ce faire, nous embrassons deux approches, qui considèrent la base de données globales sous deux angles de vue différents. D’une part, nous enquêtons sur le degré de similarité entre les manuscrits sur la base de leur contenu, à l’aide de techniques de partitionnement (clustering). D’autre part, nous étudions les relations qu’entretiennent entre eux les saints par le truchement de méthodes de fouille de règles d’association (rule mining) et de théorie des graphes. Si le but final de notre analyse est bel et bien d’appliquer ces méthodes à l’ensemble de la base, nous aborderons dans un premier temps un cas d’étude concret, celui des manuscrits hagiographiques et des saints de l’ancien diocèse de Trèves. Les résultats de l’analyse quantitative peuvent ainsi être confrontés aux conclusions qualitatives obtenues par l’historiographie. [less ▲]
