University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
I Hotel and Conference Center
The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is a unique collaborative research center launched jointly by Indiana University and the University of Illinois, along with the HathiTrust Digital Library, to help meet the technical challenges of dealing with massive amounts
of digital text that researchers face by developing cutting-edge software tools and cyberinfrastructure to enable advanced computational access to the growing digital record of human knowledge.
The second annual HTRC UnCamp will be held in September 8-9, 2013 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The UnCamp is different: it is part hands-on coding and demonstration, part inspirational use-cases, part community building, and a part informational,
all structured in the dynamic setting of an un-conference programming format. UnCamp will feature stellar keynote speakers including Matt Wilkens, who specializes in contemporary American fiction, and digital and computational literary studies at Notre Dame,
and Christopher Warren, specialist in Renaissance literature as it relates to politics, law, international political thought, and intellectual history, at Carnegie Mellon. New this year is a Scholarly Communication Office Hours. The office hours is a pilot
for user services: participants will have the option to sign up for individual consultation sessions with members of the UIUC library.
Who should attend?
The HTRC UnCamp is targeted to the digital humanities and informatics tool developers, researchers and librarians, and graduate students.
