John Noecker Jr.
Undergraduate Student
Computer Science and Mathematics
Duquesne University

I am an undergraduate student at Duquesne University pursuing a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics. For the past year and a half I have been working with Dr. Juola on the Java Graphical Authorship Attribution Package (JGAAP), which I have recently begun to use for more interesting problems, such as the one I will be presenting at the colloquium.

My research interests include text classification, particularly authorship attribution, and machine learning techniques. I also studied classification techniques for speaker verification at the 2008 CLSP Workshop on Human Language Technologies at the Johns Hopkins University. I will graduate in May of 2009 with a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics, and hope to go on to study machine learning and text classification at the PhD level next fall.

I am an associate professor of German with a primary research focus on the cultural reception of various technologies from the railway to the computer. I am interested in humanities computing as a way of representing my next project rather than the traditional monograph format. I am currently working on developing a joint workshop between my university and a German university dealing with digital humanities.

After some initial glitches our online registration form is now open. N.B. Attendance at DHCS is open to all. There are no registration fees.

Although online registration will remain open until October 27th, we’d like to encourage you to register sooner rather than later. This helps us project attendance numbers for the colloquium and ensure that we have enough food and drink on hand for everyone.

The full colloquium schedule and program has now been posted. We expect to open registration sometime tomorrow.

Unfortunately we’re running a little late on both – but we’ll have these up late today or early tomorrow. Please check back again soon.

I’d like to thank everyone who submitted paper and poster proposals to the colloquium. We were especially pleased to note a large number of proposals from faculty and students and a significant contingent of proposals from outside the country (hello, Canadians!).

The program committee has completed their review and I expect to email everyone their decisions later today.

Thank you again – the success of the colloquium rests largely upon your efforts.
