THATCamp UGA in Valence

Grenoble Alpes University (UGA) is delighted to be hosting on June 14-15, 2018 on its Valence campus its first THATCamp !

We’re glad to offer here an opportunity for sessions suited to areas of interest common to all participants, be they tools, methods, sources or any issue which could lead to meaningful exchanges. In June 2018 in Valence, it will be around the following topic :

Open data and Freeware : Researchers in the humanities and social sciences share their experience.

Here are a few suggestions about what it could be about :

  • What are your favourite sources of open data available to researchers ?
  • Public libraries, private data ?
  • Using Open Refine, Gate, Crowdcrafting etc… You name it, we’ll be happy to look into it!
  • Sharing datasets
  • Academic/business partnerships, who owns the data in the end ?
  • Etc…. !

If this is an area you would like to explore with us, please feel free to suggest ideas about what YOU would like to address, learn about, teach others, get feedback on etc…

When registration opens in January, please indicate ideas for sessions in all four of the possible formats : Talk, make, teach, play.

An outline for the programme will be built thanks to your proposals and the sessions actually taking place will be the ones deemed the most interesting by campers.

The camp is open to anyone interested as long as they are willing to actively participate in the activities and debates offered. The goal is to bring together people from a variety of backgrounds to share experience on projects and ideas.

The cost to participants is 25€. It covers attendance to all sessions as well as lunches on the two days of the camp, and coffee/tea breaks. The number of participants is limited to 40 so as to favour interaction. All events will take place in the facilities of the UGA in Valence town centre and ADUDA building next door.

For more information on this camp, please get in touch with Geraldine.

Come and share your skills, passion, concerns, hopes and anything in between !
