9th Meeting of the Digital HPS Consortium: September 9 - 11, Cambridge, UK
On September 6-8, 2012, an international group of scholars, research librarians, and computer scientists convened for the 9th meeting of the Digital History and Philosophy of Science Consortium at the University of Cambridge. The conversation started nearly a decade ago, spurred by the rapid proliferation of digital and computational approaches within the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) community. This year's meeting addressed the latest innovations within digital HPS, from open-access publishing, to global crowd-sourcing and computational approaches to textual analysis. Over the course of two and a half days, participants converged upon a set of intellectual and architectural goals for the digital HPS community, including a resolution toward open-access tool-sharing and strengthening of inter-institutional and interdisciplinary collaborations.
