Meeting Description:

Today, there are many ways in which the human and social sciences use digital resources and technology to investigate different aspects of human life. As the significance and use of digital resources continually expands into new fields of study, there are some disciplines which have already been working with digital data for decades. As such, researchers now produce and have access to an increasing range of different digital materials, offering new opportunities for interdisciplinary scholarly work and enabling certain data to be approached from different viewpoints and with novel and diverse methodologies.

The Digital Research Data and Human Sciences (DRDHum 2022) conference aims to bring together researchers who have different areas of interest and expertise to discuss the themes of data compilation and management, and to share their knowledge and experience of using digital materials, methods, and data analysis tools. We are especially keen for researchers and research groups who have implemented interdisciplinary research to participate in the event. We are inviting scholars of all ages and experience, teachers, graduate students, and any other parties that might be interested to participate and contribute to this event.

DRDHum 2022 is organized by the University of Jyväskylä in collaboration with FIN-CLARIAH. The event is the second in a series of conferences that, postponed once because of COVID, will normally take place every other year in one of the FIN-CLARIAN Consortium universities (part of CLARIAH Finland – a research infrastructure for social sciences and the humanities). The first (D)RDHum Conference was hosted at the University of Oulu in 2019, where the focus was specifically on linguistic text corpora. The second conference – at the University of Jyväskylä – will have a wider scope. Not only will the event look at the use of digital resources and technologies in fields such as the social sciences, language and communication sciences, and behavioural sciences (for instance), but discussions this year are also encouraged to go beyond textual data and also look at multimodal forms such as social media data, grid databases, and big data.

2nd Call for Papers:

This is the third call for proposals for the 2nd International Conference on Digital Research Data and Human Sciences, to be held in Jyväskylä, Finland, December 1-3, 2022.
The deadline for submission of oral presentations and posters has been extended until 21 Mar, 2022.
