Are you in Brussels @simon? More then welcome to join us in Antwerpen! This is the message which we hope to send out to the faculty tommorow. Hope this also works for the organizers (@melvin.wevers/@folgert)? We are using CHR to launch a new Code Repair Cafe initiative at the humanities faculty. Still have to find “funding” for the BBQ but fingers crossed.
Code Repair Café Launch Event: local event of Computation Humanities Research 2021, 17-19 November 2021
We launch the Code Repair Café by organizing a local/hybrid event of the Computational Humanities Research Workshop 2021. The idea is to watch the keynotes and (some of) the talks of CHR together. There will be ample opportunity to discuss the presentations, we will have lunch together and there will be a local social event (BBQ) on Friday evening. Next to the launch of the Code Repair Café, we see this as an experiment to organize better hybrid (local/digital) conferences in the future. Can we get (close to) the same feeling of immersion in exciting research, without physically going to a conference?
Keynotes will be given by Jacob Eisenstein (NLP at Google AI), Iza Romanowska (agent-based modelling and archaeology at AIAS Denmark), and Sara Tonelli (Digital Humanities at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy).
