4th Historical Network Research Conference

This 4th Historical Network Research Conference seeks to further strengthen and foster the awareness of historians for the possibilities of network research and create possibilities for cross- and multidisciplinary approaches to the networked past by bringing together historians, social scientists and computer scientists. Further, the conference will be an opportunity to benefit from works hops designed to introduce analytical tools, research methodology and visualisation techniques.
