Toronto, Ontario, Canada: March 3 -5, 2016

This workshop, with the generous support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the University of Waterloo, the University of Toronto, Rutgers University, the University of Québec in Outaouais, the Internet Archive, Library and Archives Canada, and Compute Canada, presents an opportunity to collaboratively unleash our web collections, exploring cutting-edge research tools while fostering a broad-based consensus on future directions in web archive analysis.

This hackathon will bring together a small group of 20-30 researchers to collaboratively develop new open-source tools and approaches to web archives. While there has been considerable discussion about web archive tools and datasets, few forums or mechanisms for coordinated, mutually informing development efforts have been created. This event presents an opportunity to collaboratively unleash our web collections, exploring cutting-edge research tools while fostering a broad-based consensus on future directions in web archive analysis.
