Digital humanists and data journalists face common challenges, opportunities, and goals, such as how to communicate effectively with the public. They use similar software tools, programming languages, and techniques, and they can learn from each other. Join us for lectures and tutorials about shared data types, visualization methods, and data communication — including text visualization, network diagrams, maps, databases and data wrangling. In addition to the scheduled content, there will be opportunities for casual conversation and networking.

COST OF REGISTRATION IS $99. SPACE IS LIMITED
Airport: Miami International Airport (MIA) is the closest airport by far. Flights may also be available into the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport but will be a much farther taxi / uber / lyft ride.
Transportation: There is a Metrorail station at MIA, so if you stay at a hotel near a Metrorail station (Brickell, Coconut Grove, University, or Dadeland) it's possible to use public transportation to get your hotel.
The University of Miami is on also on a Metrorail station - the University Metro Station. It takes 20 minutes (give or take) to walk from the University Metrorail Station to the Newman Alumni Center.
It is also easy to use Uber or Lyft to get around Miami; taxis are usually available at hotels, but you should not count on being able to flag one down on the street.
Hotels: There are a large number of hotels in the surrounding area that have negotiated rates with the University of Miami and are a Metrorail/taxi/uber/lyft ride away. You can find the full list of hotels with negotiated rates here.
It's also possible to find AirBnB's in the Coral Gables/Coconut Grove area (though note that these are technically illegal in Miami).
Please feel free to contact the organizers with any questions about logistics!
