The fifth annual Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS) will be held at Northwestern University on November 21-22, 2010 (Sunday-Monday).
The tag line for this year’s colloquium is “Working with Digital Data: Collaborate, Curate, Analyze, Annotate.” This does not exclude a whole lot. Quality will always trump category, but we will be particularly interested in papers or poster sessions about annotation, scholarly crowdsourcing, and challenges of human/computer interaction.

The deadline for submissions is August 31, with notification by September 17. We welcome submissions for
The colloquium now has its own website at http://chicagocolloquium.org/. It is still under construction but the links to past colloquia are a useful guide to the scope and spirit of this event.
