The Humanities Computing Graduate Student's Association invite you to
attend HuCon 2011: Current Graduate Research in Humanities Computing.
The annual conference is being held on Friday, March 11, 2011 this year,

Alberta Campus.

In addition to a reminder of this invitation, we would also like to

Dr. Ray Siemens of the University of Victoria is visiting as one of our
keynote speakers this year, and will be speaking on the
interdisciplinary project, INKE.  Dr. Milena Radzikowska is honouring us
as our second keynote this year, and she will be presenting a paper
entitled, "A Structure for Every Surface: Designing a JiTR Mash-Up," a
paper on a series of interface design concepts made from content
provided by JiTR.

As well, graduate students are showcasing their research on topics
including current technologies such as the tablet, digital libraries,
the robot in proto-science fiction, and issues around gaming and
pop-culture.  This is a great opportunity for students to gain feedback
from experienced professionals about their research, so please consider
attending.  It promises to be an interesting day, with a diversity of
topics for discussion.
