Monday, October 27, 2014 is the date for the IEEE International Conference on Big Data, this year held in Bethesda, MD, right outside of Washington, DC. Like last year, the IEEE is featuring a day-long workshop on "Big Humanities," focusing on data-driven research in the humanities and social sciences. This workshop was organized by Mark Hedges and Tobias Blanke from King’s College London, and Richard Marciano from the University of Maryland.
We are pleased to say that of the 16 papers accepted for the Big Humanities workshop, 7 are from Digging into Data researchers. Our congratulations to each Digging team on their work!
The workshop will feature a keynote from Michael Levy and Michael Haley Goldman, both of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. It will conclude with a "funders roundtable" chaired by Andrew Prescott of the University of Glasgow and featuring program officers from four Digging funders: the NEH, IMLS, SSHRC, and AHRC.
