Frédéric Kaplan

Professor Frédéric Kaplan holds the Digital Humanities Chair at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and directs the EPFL Digital Humanities Laboratory. He conducts research projects combining archive digitisation, information modelling and museographic design. He has published over one hundred scientific papers and eight books. He is the chief editor of ‘Frontiers in DH’ and co-directs the Digital Humanities book collection at EPFL Press.

He is currently directing the Local Time Machine Project “Replica” forming part of the Venice Time Machine, an international project aiming to model the evolution and history of Venice over a 1000-year period. Time Machine is a spatial and temporal extension of this ambition, the potential of which the Venice chapter already highlights.
