UPDATE (10/17): All Saturday pre-colloquium events will now take place on the second floor of Cobb Hall from noon until 6:00 PM.
This year (inspired in part by the success of THATCamp) we’ve added time for participant organized workshops and informal, “birds-of-a-feather” meetings on the day before the colloquium’s regular paper and poster sessions.
We envision the pre-colloquium being used for seminars and/or tutorials on topics that will feature in the colloquium’s paper presentations and the birds-of-a-feather (BOF) for more informal exchanges on topics of common interest (e.g. “digital archaeology”). More details here as we start registering colloquium participants.
