DH2007 is the same conference that has been meeting annually since  
the late 1980s, as a joint effort of the Association for Computers  
and the Humanities and the Association for Literary and Linguistic  
Computing.  This year, the conference will be held at the University  
of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, hosted by the Graduate School of  
Library and Information Science with support from the National Center  
for Supercomputing Applications and the Center for Computing in  
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.
