This year’s HathiTrust Research Center UnCamp will be held March 30-31, 2015 at the University of Michigan Palmer Commons. This is the third iteration of the UnCamp—an event that is part hands-on coding and demonstration, part inspirational use-cases, part community building, part informational, all structured in the dynamic setting of an un-conference programming format. It has visionary speakers mixed with boot-camp activities and hands-on sessions with HTRC infrastructure and tools. This year’s keynote speakers are Professor Michelle Alexopoulos, of the University of Toronto Department of Economics and Professor Erez Lieberman Aiden of the Department of Genetics at the Baylor College of Medicine. Read more about Michelle and Erez on the HTRC website.
Who should attend? The HTRC UnCamp is targeted to the digital humanities tool developers, researchers and librarians of HathiTrust member institutions, and graduate students. Breakout sessions will cover a range of topics and be based around attendees’ self-identified roles, so all levels of user/researcher are encouraged to attend. Attendees will be asked for their input in planning sessions, so please plan to register early!
Registration is now live!
The UnCamp will have a minimal registration fee of $150 so as to make the Uncamp as affordable as possible for you to attend, while covering meals and venue expenses. Registration will be open until March 16, 2015, and is limited due to venue constraints, so do plan to register early.
