Hi All,
*When: 21st-22nd November 2012*
*Where: Guys Campus, Hodgkin Building, London, SE1 1UL*
*>> Sign-up form

This is a reminder that the *Humanities Hack* will be taking place later
this month between the *21st and 22nd November*. For those of you who don't
know this is a joint venture between the Open Knowledge
DARIAH <http://dariah.eu/>, DM2E <http://dm2e.eu> and the Kings College
London, Digital Humanities
The London event is the first of a series of hackdays organised for coders
and researchers and intended to nurture research-driven experimentation
with existing openly licensed Humanities data.

The aim of the hackday is not to produce complete applications but to
experiment with methods and technologies to investigate these data sets so
that at the end we can have an understanding of the types of novel
techniques that are emerging. We are curating a list of
datasets<http://www.kcl.ac.uk/artshums/depts/ddh/index.aspx>at the
moment for use at the hack, please have a look at them and add any
that you think would be good to look at on the day.

It's set to be a fantastic day with people who have been involved in some
of the most exciting open source Digital Humanities projects already
signed-up such as TEXTUS <http://textusproject.org> and

As spaces are filling up, I would urge anyone who still wants to come to
the next few days. Any queries about the day itself, then let me know!

All the best and hope to see many of you there!
