THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” THATCamp is an unconference: an open, flat structured meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels get together in interactive sessions proposed on the spot. An unconference is to a conference what a seminar is to a lecture, what a party at your house is to a church wedding, what a pick-up game of Ultimate Frisbee is to an NBA game, what a jam band is to a symphony orchestra: it’s more informal and more participatory.

THATCamp Amsterdam 2016 is organised in collaboration with the Creativity and the City Conference at the University of Amsterdam. This conference is an initiative of CREATE, the digital humanities group within research group ACHI, the Amsterdam Centre for Cultural Heritage and Identity.
