The Associazione per l’Informatica Umanistica e le Culture Digitali (AIUCD) is pleased to announce the sixth edition of its annual conference. The AIUCD 2017 Conference will be held from January 26-28 in Rome, Italy, and it is organized by DigiLab (Sapienza University), in collaboration with the DiXiT Marie Curie network  (Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training). The DiXiT workshop “The educational and social impact of Digital Scholarly Editions” is planned before the Conference.

The main topic of the AIUCD 2017 Conference is the use of big data methods, cultural analytics and distant reading in the Humanities. We would like to explore the methodological and epistemological impact of these methods, their application in the different fields of the Humanities  and on various kinds of media and digital resources, their effects on our comprehension of cultural and historical phenomena and, finally, their consequences and repercussions on the social and public perceptions of the Humanities.
