Talk made at the Digital Humanities 2010 conference (Short-listed for the Fortier Young Scholar award; a video of the talk will soon be made available on http://www.arts-humanities.net/). "Digitizing the act of papyrological interpretation: negotiating spurious exactitude and genuine uncertainty", by S.M. Tarte  
The aim of the project was to enable the use of eSAD developed image-processing algorithms within theframework developed within the VRE-SDM. This means bridging the gap between the use of the NGS for imageprocessing and the web based access mechanisms used by this research community.

Abstract: Transcribing ancient inscribed texts is a complex task. The “e-Science, Imaging Technology and Ancient Documents” project aims at supporting Classicists in this task. The resulting intelligent system will offer image processing facilities tailored to the Classicists’ needs as well as ways to handle reasoning under uncertainty and share transcriptions and documents. We present here our first steps towards building such a system, concentrating on the imaging processing functionality, in particular illumination and background correction. Regular transcription sessions allow us to evaluate if these processed images respond to the Classists’ requirements and their impact on the legibility of the documents.
