CFP: Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science

April 19th, 2007 by Ross Scaife

from Martin Mueller:

The second Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science will be held on October 21-22, 2007 at Northwestern University. The event is jointly sponsored by the Illinois Institute of Technology, Northwestern University, and the University of Chicago.

The theme for this colloquium will be “Exploring the scholarly query potential of high quality text and image archives in a collaborative environment.” This is a call for papers and poster sessions. The deadline for submissions will be July 31, 2007, and notifications will be made by September 3, 2007. Proposal abstracts (2 page maximum) should be submitted in either PDF or MS Word format to dhcs- submissions@listhost.uchicago.edu.

Further details will be available soon at the colloquium web site (http://dhcs.uchicago.edu/), where right now you can see the program of last year’s very successful colloquium.

The sessions will be organized around the sub-themes of the query potential of high-quality image archives, the query potential of well- encoded archives, and the significance of collaborative or social computing environments for research in the humanities.

We look forward to receiving your proposals on these topics.
