The Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon is a chance to experience an interdisciplinary research project from start to finish within the span of 10 days. For researchers and students from computer science and data science, the hackathon gives the opportunity to test their abstract knowledge against complex real-life problems. For people from the humanities and social sciences, it shows what is possible to achieve with such collaboration. 


For both, the hackathon gives the experience of intensely working with people from different backgrounds as part of an interdisciplinary team, as, during the hackathon, each group will develop a digital humanities research project from start to finish. Working together, they will formulate research questions with respect to particular data sets, develop and apply methods and tools to answer them, and present the work at the end of the hackathon. 


In 2021, the event will be organized as an online hackathon. As a CLARIN, DARIAH and SSHOC summer school, the event will be truly international welcoming applications from all over Europe. Participation to #DHH21 is free to all accepted participants.
