The Humanities and Technology Camp<http://thatcamp.org> is an open unconference where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. Since its founding at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media<http://chnm.gmu.edu> at George Mason University in 2008, more than 105 THATCamps<http://thatcamp.org/04/24/how-long-how-much-how-many/> have been held in places all around the world, helping more than 6000 students, scholars, and professionals improve their skills in the digital humanities while meeting terrific, smart people from all kinds of fields and professions.

The sixth annual THATCamp CHNM<http://chnm2013.thatcamp.org> (affectionately nicknamed "THATCamp Prime") will take place June 7-8, 2013 at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media in Fairfax, VA, home of Omeka<http://omeka.org> and Zotero<http://zotero.org>. Spots are still available, and the whole event is free. At an unconference, the program is mostly created on the first day by the participants themselves, but pre-scheduled events<http://chnm2013.thatcamp.org/schedule> include a 3D modeling and printing workshop, a manuscript transcribathon where participants transcribe and tag digital historical documents, and a workshop on how to use JSTOR Data for Research to analyze a massive archive of scholarly journal articles. A Maker Challenge<http://chnm2013.thatcamp.org/challenge> will offer THATCamp CHNM participants prizes such as an iPad Mini for an original project begun that weekend.

Register now<http://chnm2013.thatcamp.org/register> while space is still available. Everyone is welcome, and THATCamp is notoriously<http://www.foundhistory.org/2010/05/24/thatcamp-groundrules/> fun, productive, and collegial.
