        Subject: Hestia2 in Stanford: complex data visualisation in the humanities


Dear all,
 
The Hestia project is pleased to announce its second community event, which
will take place at Stanford University on 4-5 November 2013. The two-day
workshop, hosted by Stanford's Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis
(http://cesta.stanford.edu/), will tackle the issue of visualizing complex
data, and will be of interest to anyone working on network theory and the
digital analysis of literature and historical material.
 
It will include presentations from various local high-tech companies
developing complex data analysis and hands-on work with the following
humanities projects based in Stanford:

- Orbis 2.0 (http://orbis.stanford.edu/), the latest geospatial network
model of the ancient world;

- Arches (http://archesproject.org/), a new open-source geospatial software
system for cultural heritage inventory and management;

- Palladio, a new platform for visualizing and analyzing networks of
historical data;

- Topotime, a new data model and graphical layout designed specifically to
handle the fuzzy temporal bounds and cyclical time of literary narratives.

 
This two-day event is free for all. We simply ask you to register in advance
here: https://www.eventbrite.com/event/8878063527

For more information about the event and about Hestia, please visit our

We look forward to welcoming you in Stanford!

 
Best wishes
The Hestia2 team
