4th Digital Humanities Austria 2017 “Data First!?”

The 4th Digital Humanities Austria Conference (DHA 2017) will be held December 4-6, 2017 in Innsbruckn Austria. This year’s theme is “Data First!?”.

The 4th Digital Humanities Austria Conference in cooperation with DARIAH, CLARIN and Digital Humanities Austria will take place at the University of Innsbruck (A) from December 4th to December 6th, 2017.

The conference this year is according to the motto “Data First!?”. The (half)-automatized data production and its quality, analysis, interpretation and visualization is gaining importance throughout the humanities.

The purpose of this conference is to develop an exchange of experiences between humanities scholars, employees of libraries, archives, as well as computer sciences and technologies. Successful research activities in the field of digital humanities are (almost) always determined by interdisciplinarity, skills of different research fields will be required. Due to that, the involvement of new developments in related research areas is important to us. Young scientists are particularly encouraged to present their research results in front of a broad audience – for example in the form of a poster or a demonstration.

Application Fee

Early Bird Fees (till October the 1st, 2017): 50 or 25 EUR (students).

Call for papers

DHA 2017

The Research Center Digital Humanities at the University of Innsbruck, the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities, CLARIN and DARIAH AT invite you to submit proposals for the 4th Digital Humanities Austria Conference that takes place in Innsbruck from December the 4th till December the 6th, 2017.

We invite proposals in 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!?

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.

Proposals can be submitted for paper presentations, panels, workshops, posters and demonstrations (“Tools Gallery”).
Abstracts that will be uploaded at Conftool are considered as proposals.
