This non-competitive Hackfest invites participants to explore or “hack” research data provided by invited digital humanities (DH) researchers. It will show what can be accomplished when research data is opened up for collaboration. Participants will enhance their skills and learn to use new tools to visualize data and work with digital assets. The event will also be an opportunity to meet other scholars from diverse fields and to learn about emerging common practices in DH.
11-14 August 2015, Vancouver
The deadline for submissions: May 1, 2015
Call for Participation
The conference will address a wide range of issues such as open access
publishing, global knowledge creation and sharing, open educational
resources, the digital humanities, current and future scholars as
publishers, and open source technologies. It will provide opportunities to
explore a new array of connections among scholarship, technology, and
community, all focused around the broad theme of openness.
The program will consist of a mixture of invited plenary presentations, a
“next generation scholars” panel discussion, brief “lightning talks,” a
2-day development sprint, and workshops. A preliminary schedule, including
the updated registration fees, can be found on the conference website:
