The High Throughput Humanities satellite event at ECCS'10 establishes a forum for high throughput approaches in the humanities and social sciences, within the framework of complex systems science. The symposium aims to go beyond massive data aquisition and to present results beyond what can be manually achieved by a single person or a small group. Bringing together scientists, researchers, and practitioners from relevant fields, the event will stimulate and facilitate discussion, spark collaboration, as well as connect approaches, methods, and ideas.
The main goal of the event is to present novel results based on analyses of Big Data (see NATURE special issue 2009), focusing on emergent complex properties and dynamics, which allow for new insights, applications, and services.
Utilizing a complex systems approach to harness these data, the contributors of this event aim to make headway into the territory of traditional humanities and social sciences, understanding history, arts, literature, and society on a global-, meso- and granular level, using computational methods to go beyond the limitations of the traditional researcher.
The deadline for submissions was April 30, 2010.
Notifications of acceptance have been sent out by May 31, 2010. The meeting takes place on September 15, 2010 in Lisbon, Portugal.

Attendees must register for ECCS'10 – European Conference on Complex Systems at http://www.eccs2010.eu.
The video introduction features the slides and live audio track of a talk that we have presented to an awesome audience of 400 people [Thank you!] at the O'Reilly Global Ignite Boston 7 event on March 4, 2010 at Microsoft NERD in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
