ACDH contributes @ DHA2017

With more than 10 lectures, workshops, panels, and posters the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities (ACDH-OeAW) makes a significant contribution to the programme of the 4th Digital Humanities Austria conference (dha2017) in Innsbruck.

The 4th Digital Humanities Austria conference, organised in cooperation with DARIAH, CLARIN and Digital Humanities Austria, will take place at the University of Innsbruck from December 4th to December 6th, 2017. Under the motto "Data First!" this year's conference puts the focus on (half)-automatized data production and its quality, analysis, interpretation and visualization, an area that is gaining importance throughout the humanities.

The conference fosters the exchange of experiences between humanities scholars, employees of libraries, archives, as well as computer and data scientists. More information can be found on the following website
