We are just a few days away from this year’s Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science. This page is an attempt to answer the most frequently asked questions about the event (in paragraph form) and will be updated as other questions arise.
Event Venue: The conference is being held at Loyola University Chicago, 25 E. Pearson Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611. When you reach 25 E. Pearson, you will want to check in at the front desk and proceed to Kasbeer Hall on the 15th floor. The entire event will take place in Kasbeer Hall.
Registration: We are still able to accommodate walk-in registrations. However, as space is limited, we encourage you to fill in the registration form prior to arrival. If the registration form has been taken down, it means that we have received the maximum number of registrations. You may pick up your name tag on Saturday (between 3:00pm and 7:00pm), Sunday (anytime), or Monday (anytime).
Food: Continental breakfast and coffee breaks will be provided (at no charge) on Sunday, November 20, and Monday, November 21. (Saturday is completely on your own.) Lunch is on your own on Sunday and Monday, given the myriad of choices near Loyola’s Water Tower Campus and to give all participants a breather. There will be a catered reception of light eats and wine/beer/beverage service on Sunday, November 20.
Parking/Transit: There are many parking garages near Loyola’s Water Tower Campus. Unfortunately, most do not offer validation on Sundays. You are encouraged to take public transportation. Loyola Chicago is served by the CTA Red Line stop at Chicago Avenue.
Wireless Access: Wi-Fi has been arranged for all participants. You may connect up to two devices to our Wi-Fi network. Details will be posted shortly or provided when you arrive to pick up your name tag.
Poster Session: We have arranged for easels and poster boards for the poster session. You may set up your poster anytime on Saturday or Sunday. We have scheduled the poster session at the same time as the catered reception to enhance interest in the accepted posters/demos.
Proceedings: Owing to environmental and financial considerations, there will not be printed proceedings. We will only be providing a single printed page with an abbreviated version of the conference schedule and how to connect to our wireless network. The entire program and accepted papers can be found here.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s DHCS and hope you have a great time during your visit.
