Leipzig is lovely (in the summer even more so than in the winter). Above all, there are some great digital humanists there. The call for papers of the Leipzig eHumanities seminar series is out for this season. I can definitely recommend the venue, good discussions guaranteed.
Deadline for abstracts is August 15th. More info below:
The Leipzig eHumanities Seminar establishes a new forum for the discussion of digital methods applied within the Humanities. Topics include text mining, machine learning, network analysis, time series, sentiment analysis, agent-based modelling, or efficient visualization of massive and humanities relevant data.
The seminars take place every Wednesday afternoon (3:15 PM – 4:45 PM) from October until end of January at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science in Leipzig, Germany. All accepted papers will be published in an online volume. Furthermore, a small budget for travel cost reimbursements is available.
Abstracts of no more than 1000 words should be sent by August, 15th, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notifications and program announcements will be sent by the end of August.
