My colleagues and I in the King’s Visualisation Lab at the Centre for Computing in the Humanities are excited by the opportunity both to present our work to scholars working in related fields of humanities computer based research, and to see, discuss, and learn from examples of other important work taking place internationally. We welcome the kind invitation to develop closer ties and indentify and pursue opportunities for very attractive and promising collaborative research projects.
