NZ eResearch Symposium 2011
Thursday 30 June – Friday 1 July
University of Otago, Dunedin

NZ eResearch Symposium 2011 will be held at The University of Otago, 
Dunedin on Thursday 30 June  – Friday 1 July 2011.   Please mark these 
dates in your calendar and start making arrangements.

eResearch encompasses all of the  research computing that supports a 
research community. It crosses research  disciplines,  from the 
humanities and social sciences, physical and biological sciences, to 
math and engineering. It includes the computing and software platforms 
that connect equipment, data, and other computing resources with people, 
along with collections management,
platforms to run experiments, and advanced collaboration tools. 
eResearch communities thrive on deep engagement with researchers,  and 
aim to support the formation and operation of effective 
digitally-supported research communities.

Our NZ eResearch Symposium is a  broad  forum for NZ's research sector 
and nascent eResearch community. This is an opportunity to meet leaders 
of eResearch initiatives within NZ and internationally, and to hear 
about emerging practice, and to share experiences.

Further details including a call for contributors will be available shortly.

DH2011: Early Registration Closing Soon!

Have you registered for DH2011 at Stanford yet? Early registration will 
close on June 1,2011 --- just a little over two weeks before the 
conference begins.


You can continue to register right up until conference time, and even 
on-site --- but all bets are off after June 1: your favorite workshops 
and tutorials are beginning to fill up --- in fact, a few of them are 
already full. <https://dh2011.stanford.edu/?page_id=475>

Or there might be no more seats on the magic bus headed for the 
post-Conference excursion of your California 

Finally, we'll need to raise the registration rates just a little to 
compensate for the last-minute menu tweaking and tee-shirt tie-dying and 
what have you. We'll try to go easy on this --- we're Californians; 
we're easy-going by nature --- and we might even be able give everyone a 
day or two leeway.  But please help us out by registering soon.  We want 
to be sure there's enough of everything to go around.

P.S. In case you need any more convincing, we've just posted the 
complete DH2011 Book of Abstracts on the conference website.  It's a 
stunning compilation of the collected work and thought of the DH 
community, and promises an outstanding academic program.   It's linked 
at the bottom of the "Schedule" page of our site, at
