Presented by The Special Interest Group for Arts and Humanities (SIG-AH) and the Special Interest Group for Visualization, Images, & Sound (SIG-VIS) of the Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T).

SIG AH and SIG VIS are pleased to announce the dates for the Second Virtual Symposium on Information & Technology in the Arts & Humanities. The theme for 2016 is Connecting the arts and humanities through technology – data, images, and sound. Within this theme, topics for the Symposium schedule may include:

  • Linked data in the arts and cultural heritage
  • Non-text digital collections
  • Visualization projects
  • Open Access in the humanities
  • Research data management
  • Multimedia information retrieval
  • Data curation in visual studies

Like the 2015 Symposium, we will feature speakers from academia and industry, libraries, research institutions, and other organizations.

The Symposium schedule is now live and includes:

  • Nicky Agate, The Modern Language Association (MLA)
  • Katherine Walter, University of Nebraska, Lincoln
  • Martin Calvino, Scientist/Artist/Technologist
  • Cory Lampert, University of Nevada Las Vegas

The Symposium will also showcase student research with the winners from the SIG Student Research Paper Awards presenting. Full details for the Award and the Call for Student Papers can be found at:

ACCESS DETAILS: Thanks to the San Jose State University ASIST Student Chapter, the Symposium will once again be held via Blackboard Collaborate. We suggest the use of a headset rather than computer-only audio; you can also use a phone.
