Digital Humanities refers to the practice of humanities research with digital resources and information technology. The interdisciplinary nature of digital humanities enables researchers examining new methodology, defining new research issues, discovering new context between quantity data, and exploring how the humanities may evolve. The emergence of Digital Humanities has not only transformed the practice of academic research. With equally importance, digital humanities also aims to endeavor a nuanced and critical understanding of how digital technology shapes our society, inspires innovation, and creates new life style in the digital era.


This conference is thus organized to engage more researchers to participate in the ongoing dialogs that will eventually lead to encourage collective projects, to stimulate more new research themes, and ultimately to contribute to the growth and flourishing of the global research community of Digital Humanities.
