I don’t feel like I have as much travel planned for this year as most. It’s great to have more or less travel, with time always needed with folks at UF and outside of UF to build collaborative projects and community in ways that best support new projects and initiatives. I like to share on conference travel, whenever I remember, so that it hopefully supports opportunities to meet and chat with folks.
- Next weekend, February 15-16, I’ll be traveling with a group from UF to attend THATCamp Florida in Orlando. Mark Sullivan and I have proposed a session on SobekCM, and the whole group will be adding more proposals.
- April 24-25: THATCamp-Gainesville: no travel for me, but it’s going to be an awesome event and offer opportunities to meet loads of folks and much more! (The website will be up soon, and the URL is active: http://gainesville2014.thatcamp.org/)
- June 8-13: ACURIL Conference in The Bahamas; and, this year, we’re celebrating the tenth birthday of the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC). We’re getting a birthday cake and there’ll be a party!
- June 20-22: Attending the “Data Driven: Digital Humanities in the Library” Conference in Charleston, SC and presenting with Mark Sullivan on SobekCM, “Gathering Lost Things and Connecting Lone Researchers: SobekCM and Digital Humanities Collaborations with the Librarians and Scholars”
- October 27-29: Digital Library Federation Forum (DLF Forum), in Atlanta. Until now, I haven’t been able to make my scheduling work for the DLF Forum. With it being in Atlanta, it likely means another awesome road-trip with folks from UF to attend the conference. I’m looking forward to this because it’s known as a great event, so many great folks attend (and folks I don’t get to see at other events, including great colleagues like Matt Mariner and his awesome project with Internet Archive), and because it’s Atlanta and Atlanta is always amazing.
