What is InterFace?

InterFace is a symposium for humanities and technology. In 2011 it is
being jointly hosted by colleges across London and will be an
invaluable opportunity for participants to visit this active hub of
digital scholarship and practice.

The symposium aims to foster collaboration and shared understanding
between scholars in the humanities and in computer science, especially
where their efforts converge on exchange of subject matter and
method. With a focus on the interests and concerns of Ph.D students
and early career researchers, the programme will include networking
activities, opportunities for research exposition, and various
training and workshop activities.

A core component of the programme will be a lightning talks session
in which each participant will make a two-minute presentation on their
research. The session will be lively and dynamic. Each presentation
must be exactly two minutes long, making use of necessary,
interesting, appropriate, or entertaining visual or sound aids, and
condensing a whole Ph.D's worth of ideas and work into this short

Participants will be able to join workshops in:

 * _Data Visualisation_

   lead by *Andy Hudson Smith* (UCL, Centre for Advanced Spatial
   Analysis)  http://www.casa.ucl.ac.uk/people/person.asp?id=7

 * _Network Analysis_

   lead by *Tom Brughmans* (Southampton) and *Marco Buechler*

 * _Semantic Web_

   lead by *Joe Padfield* (National Gallery)

 * _Bibliographic Software_

   lead by *Ian Mulvany* (VP New Product Development, Mendeley)

There will be talks on:

 * _User Studies_

   given by *Claire Warwick* (UCL, Information Studies)

 * _How to Get Published_

   given by *Sarah-Louise Quinnell* (http://www.phd2published.com/)
   and representatives from Ashgate Publishing.

 * _How to Get Funding in the EU and UK_

   given by *Henreitte Brun* (UCL, Laws Faculty)

There will also be two keynote talks given by speakers whose work
marks the leading edge of technology in scholarship and practice. The
speakers will be:

 * *Melissa Terras* (UCL)

   _Digitsation of Cultural Heritage and Image Processing_

 * *Stephen Scrivener* (University of the Arts, London)

   _Design Research and Creative Production_

Finally, the symposium will conclude with an unconference; a
participatory, collaborative, and informal event in which the form and
content is decided on by participants as it unfolds and in which
discussion and production is emphasised over presentation and
analysis. Participants may wish to share their own skills, learn a new
skill, establish and develop a collaborative project, or hold a
focused discussion.

We look forward to receiving your application.

        Subject: Upcoming THATCamps

Hi all,

Wanted to send HUMANIST a summary of upcoming THATCamps and THATCamp
deadlines. THATCamp, as you may know, stands for The Technology And
Humanities Camp, and there's plenty of information at
http://thatcamp.org. If you'd let people in your discipline,
organization, or geographic area know about particular THATCamps and
fellowships, it'd be a kindness to us and (we think) to them.

* Remember that we offer BootCamp fellowships in the amount of $500 for
most THATCamps on an ongoing basis: http://thatcamp.org/fellowships

* Applications for THATCamp Melbourne will be accepted through March 10:

* Registrations for THATCamp Florence are being accepted through March
15: http://thatcampflorence.org

* THATCamp Jersey Shore is happening in lovely Atlantic City at the
Carnegie Library Center April 4-5, and will accept registrations till
then, space permitting: http://jerseyshore2011.thatcamp.org

* The National Council on Public History is having a THATCamp on
Wednesday, April 6, just before its annual meeting in Pensacola, FL.
Registration is open through March 15, and others besides public
historians are very welcome: http://ncph2011.thatcamp.org/

* THATCamp Texas at Rice University in Houston, TX is accepting
applications through March 11 and will take place April 15-16:

* Great Lakes THATCamp at East Lansing MI is also accepting applications
through March 11 and will take place April 30-May 1:

* Registrations will open soon (by March 1) for THATCamp "Prime" at the
Center for History and New Media, June 3-5. Registration will be open
this year instead of by application, and participation will be increased
to 125 people. The first day, Friday June 3, will be an exciting set of
BootCamp workshops -- stay tuned.

* THATCamp Liberal Arts Colleges at St. Norbert in De Pere, WI is
happening the same weekend as THATCamp "Prime" -- by design! The two
THATCamps will have a shared virtual session. THATCamp LAC is accepting
applications through April 18, 2011.

* THATCamp Victoria is happening June 10-11 in conjunction with the
world-renowned Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of
Victoria. Registrations are open till April 1 or till 75 people have
