DHN 2018 conference 7-9 March 2018, Helsinki - Registration open - Preliminary programme available - News Hackathon - Call for Open Science workshops

Jouni Tuominen
Dear digital humanities enthusiasts,

HELDIG is organizing the Di­gital Hu­man­it­ies in the Nor­dic
Coun­tries (DHN) conference in 7-9 March 2018 in Helsinki, Finland

The registration for the conference is now open. See the instructions,
fees, and the registration form here:

The preliminary programme of the DHN conference is available here:

In addition to the main conference tracks, the DHN programme includes
interesting pre-conference workshops
(http://heldig.fi/dhn-2018/programme#section-45496). Please remember to
register for the workshops as well - you will be asked for your
selection in the conference registration form.

* News Hackathon *

We are proud to offer a 1,5 hackathon on digitised newspaper corpora and
web-archives! The hackathon takes place on 5-6 March, prior the main
conference. More information and registration (by 31 January 2018) for
the hackathon:

* Call for Open Science workshops in DHN2018 (March 9, 2018) *

The overarching theme of DHN2018 is Open Science. This pragmatic concept
emphasises the role of transparent and reproducible research practices,
open dissemination of results, and new forms of collaboration, all
greatly facilitated by digitalisation. Conference participants have been
invited to specifically highlight aspects of Open Science in the
submitted work.

A call is now open for workshops that emphasize themes relevant to Open
Science. The workshops will take place on March 9, 2018 in Tiedekulma,
parallel to the main event. We are looking for proposals on any aspects
or activities that are relevant for Open Science. Examples of
appropriate formats include, but are not limited to, academic seminar,
hackathon, or a public outreach event.

Brief proposals (max 1 page) can be sent to Leo Lahti [hidden email]
(DHN2018 Open Science chair) by Feb 5, 2018. Kindly include a brief
description of the event, anticipated number of participants, session
timing (up to a full-day event), and contact information of the
organizer/s. You can also contact us to discuss the proposal in more
detail before submission.


See you in Helsinki!

On behalf of the DHN 2018 local organisers,
Jouni Tuominen
