A second announcement with repeated apologies for cross-posting:

The fifth annual Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer
Science (DHCS) will be held at Northwestern University on November
21-22, 2010 (Sunday-Monday).

The tag line for this year's colloquium is "Working with Digital Data:
Collaborate, Curate, Analyze, Annotate." This does not exclude a whole
lot. Quality will always trump category, but we will be particularly
interested in papers or poster sessions about annotation, scholarly
crowdsourcing, and challenges of human/computer interaction. How to
create better texts from OCR may be a problem in which new forms of
human/computer interaction hold particular promise.

The deadline for submissions is August 31, with notification by
September 17. We welcome submissions for

1. Paper presentations (20 minutes)
2. Poster sessions
3. Software demonstrations

Please submit an abstract (no more than 2 pages, please) in either Adobe
PDF (preferred) or Word format to
dhcs-submissions at listhost.uchicago.edu.

The colloquium now has its own website at http://chicagocolloquium.org/.
It is still under construction but the links to past colloquia are a
useful guide to the scope and spirit of this event.
