Annual conference ITUP

Yearly conference of the International Tustep User Group

We would like to invite you to participate in the conference by reading a paper on a topic within the conference theme Digital Humanities: Deployment and Perspectives.

Our Dutch colleague and keynote speaker Rens Bod, professor of Computational and Digital Humanities (University of Amsterdam), however, made the statement in his inaugural oration that we must not continue to dwell on searching for mere patterns.

Questions concerning that combination will be the theme of the conference.
