Mark your calendars. HTRC is hosting its first annual HTRC UnCamp in September 2012 at Indiana University in Bloomington. The UnCamp is different: it is part hands-on coding and demonstration, part inspirational use-cases, part community building, and a part informational, all structured in the dynamic setting of an un-conference programming format. It has visionary speakers mixed with boot-camp activities and hands-on sessions with HTRC infrastructure and tools. Through the HTRC Data API, attendees will be able to browse and run applications (yours or ours) against the full 2.8M volumes of the public domain corpus of HathiTrust. Bloomington is lovely in September and the IU campus is noted as one of the most beautiful public university campuses in the nation.

Who should attend? The HTRC UnCamp is targeted to the digital humanities tool developers, researchers and librarians of HathiTrust member institutions, and graduate students. Attendance will be capped at 60 participants, so plan to register early!

Registration. The Uncamp will have a minimal registration fee to make the UnCamp as affordable as possible for you to attend. We anticipate registration at $75.00.

Travel.  We recommend lodging at the Indiana Memorial Union. Participants who plan to fly to the UnCamp should use Indianapolis International Airport IND and shuttle to Bloomington, IN (about 45 minutes). HTRC anticipates funding a small number of travel grants to diversify attendance from within an organization.
