MCML Meets Humanities 2023

Machine learning algorithms and data science techniques are getting increasingly popular among researchers in the humanities („Digital humanities”). In this workshop, we aim to bring together students and young researchers working in mathematics, computer science, the humanities and cultural history, to learn about state-of-the-art tools, both those readily designed with a specific use in the humanities in mind, and novel research, which could have a potential usecase in the digital humanities.


Keynote speakers include


The following four hour intensive workshops are designed for PhD students and postdocs, to learn state-of-the-art tools and methodology for text-based research. Please bring a laptop to the workshop.

Poster Session

The goal of our meeting is to foster exchange and cross-disciplinary collaborations. We therefore welcome both posters highlighting results and research concepts/experiment design/predata posters from all parts of Digital Humanities, Digital Cultural Heritage and Computational Social Sciences. There is no peer-review process for posters, but a mandatory registration. Please register until 4.10.2023 by email to Carina Geldhauser.
