If you want to create a panel/workshop on any topic but need other participants, feel free to post a blog on HASTAC with the call in the headline, and we’ll make sure to tweet it out. Or post your call on Twitter as #HASTAC2015.

There will be student housing available on the campus for very affordable rates - something like $40 a night, I believe (details on their site below.) The hotels start at $120 a night too, so there will be some affordable housing for everyone.

We’d LOVE to have a panel from GO::DH on the specific questions and projects organized by folks here. Why not put together a panel?

Please email hastac2015 at gmail.com<mailto:hastac2015 at gmail.com> if you have any questions. You can cc me but please contact them directly as well.

all the best,

HASTAC 2015 conference <http://www.hastac2015.org> will be held May 27-30, 2015 at the Kellogg Center on the campus of Michigan State University.
