The conference takes place in Innsbruck from December the 4th till December the 6th, 2017.
The digital turn is increasing the interest for data among the humanities. Data will be produced almost automatically regarding to methods like text recognition and text mining. On the one hand, the work with data offers new challenges for humanities scholars according to its quantity (keyword: Big Data) and its quality (the high error rate of produced data). On the other hand, it reveals unknown and exciting insights and analysis. Submissions according to this topic will be given preference.
Invited are proposals from all areas of Digital Humanities research and related fields that work with digital methods, resources and data.
Special attention will be given to our conference theme: Data First!?
Proposals can be submitted for paper presentations, panels, workshops, posters and demonstrations ("Tools Gallery").
Closing Date for Presentation Abstracts: July the 31st. Closing Date for Workshop, Poster, Panels and Tools Gallery Abstracts: August the 15th.
