DHCS 2009

The 4th annual Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS) is fast approaching. This year's festivities are hosted by Shlomo Argamon and his collaborators at the Illinois Institute of Technology, November 14-16. The program is interesting and wide ranging and I am particularly looking forward to the presentations by our keynote speakers. Several of the ARTFL group will be giving presentations at the pre-conference meetings and workshops on Saturday, also know as our "Birds of a Feather" meeting. Clovis and I will be talking about recent work, based in part on two talks, "From Words to Works" and "PAIR/PhiloLine", as well as some of the more recent work on topic modeling. I also prepared a more technical PhiloLogic overview, demonstration, followed by a discussion of database loading and configuration (slides), just in case I need one. The second half should probably be expanded at one point, since I have had many requests for more extensive documentation on loading and configuring databases in PhiloLogic.
