Karina van Dalen-Oskam studied Dutch at Utrecht University and obtained her PhD at Leiden University in 1997 with a thesis on Jacob van Maerlants Rijmbijbel. From 1988 to 2001 she worked at the Institute for Dutch Lexicology in Leiden. In 2002 she joined the Netherlands Institute for Scientific Information Services (NIWI) as head of the Department of Dutch Studies and senior researcher. She joined Huygens ING in June 2005, where she was research leader on the theme of ICT & Texts, and since 1 July 2011 head of the Literature department. Her research focuses on computational literature and she is involved in the development of methods and techniques for stylistic research of modern Dutch (and English) novels. She aims to develop comparative methods for the analysis of stylistic differences between texts, oeuvres, genres, epochs and cultures or languages. As of March 2012, she is also Professor of Computational Literature at the University of Amsterdam. On 1 February 2013 she gave her inaugural speech: "De stijl van R". She was a member of the Executive Committee (2011-2014) and president (2014-2015) of the European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH). Since November 2015 she has been chairman of the international umbrella digital humanities organization ADHO (Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations).
|Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands|
|Drs. Joris J. van Zundert (1972) is a senior researcher and developer in humanities computing. He holds a research position in the department of literary studies at the Huygens Institute for the History of The Netherlands, a research institute of The Netherlands Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). His main research interest is in computational algorithms for the analysis of literary and historic texts, and the nature and properties of humanities information and data modeling. His current research focuses on the interaction between research software engineering and humanities interaction, specifically the tensions between hermeneutics and ‘big data’ approaches. His computational analytic work focuses on the correlation between text immanent features of texts and sociological processes around the concept of literature. However, he also keeps himself occupied with computational approaches to stemmatology, narratology, and scholarly editions.|

|Book History, Philology, Digital Collections|
I hold an MA in Philology from Ghent University and an MA in Book and Publishing Studies from Leiden University. I wrote a PhD on publishing history in the Netherlands. I'm still interested in text, philology and publishing, but in recent years my focus has shifted to all things digital: Digital Humanities, digital publishing, digital source critique and textual data. I am curator of digital collections at the KB, the national library of the Netherlands.
In the CLARIAH-programme I am primarily an expert on large digitised collections of publications, on behalf of the KB.

|Methodology in philosophy, computational humanities, history and philosophy of topics in logic, ontology, language, and maths|
|(she/they, full prof & chair) work at the University of Amsterdam as a philosopher of language (rarely seen species in computational humanities). I want to create a new sound & transparent computational methodology for history of ideas combining so-called symbolic and non-symbolic AI (ontologies + distributional semantics). I manage a handful of projects on this. I'm rather interested in technical things and thoughts about technical aspects without being a programmer myself. We build/use philosophy corpora in German (1740-1939), Latin (18th), Polish (19th-20th), English (1890-2000) and I hope, soon, classical Greek and 14th century Latin.|

|Historical Dutch, Microvariation Dutch, Syntax, Morphology, Sociolinguistics|
|I am a generative syntactician researching microvariation patterns in both Dutch dialects and historical varieties of Dutch. I combine formal syntactic, sociolinguistic and quantitative analyses to gain insight in these patterns.|
