Our delightful friends on the joint conference team have put together a THATcamp for the 2016 Conference in Seattle, WA. It’s the day before the conference, Tuesday March 8 2016:
What is THATCamp?
THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” It is an unconference: an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. This allows for a more informal, collaborative atmosphere compared to a typical conference setting.
Who should come?
All are welcome! The organizers of the THATCamp are an enthusiastic working group of both ARLIS/NA and VRA members, but this event is open to the public. Non-ARLIS/NA and VRA members are encouraged to attend!
How to register?:
Attendance is limited to 75 participants to ensure a lively and engaged atmosphere. Apply now to let us know why you want to attend and what ideas you want to share. Registration is free and open from October 12th – November 13th. Register here.
I’m really looking forward to see what gets made during this session. And hey, the Travel Awards are open for submission now, too!
