We hosted a computational archival science unconference!
Did you miss it? Check out the notes and slides here.

Thursday, December 14, 2017
9am-1pm: Tours and demonstrations for CAS workshop participants
1pm-5pm: Public unconference


We seek to connect participants from the CAS 2017 workshop (scholars researching and developing computational methods for archives) with archivists and librarians using computational methods to curate and manage collections, explore possible collaborations, and provide an open forum where a broad community of interest might engage with these ideas.
Anyone from the public is invited to attend! If you are interested in...
  • Digital humanities,
  • Automation of archival processes,
  • Digital archives, or
  • Research data management / data science / scientific data sets

...this event is for you!

Registration is limited to 60 participants, and we will manage a wait list after reaching capacity. Please email Jane Kelly (jkelly@law.harvard.edu) if you register and are unable to attend.

CAS Background:

Computational Archival Science is defined by CAS scholars as:
An interdisciplinary field concerned with the application of computational methods and resources to large-scale records/archives processing, analysis, storage, long-term preservation, and access, with aim of improving efficiency, productivity and precision in support of appraisal, arrangement and description, preservation and access decisions, and engaging and undertaking research with archival material.
Additional information including slides, videos, notes, and other documentation on past meetings and workshops are available from the CAS portal: http://dcicblog.umd.edu/cas/
