It has been over half a century since father Roberto Busa, who later became the father figure of digital humanities, demonstrated the use of a punched card machine fitted with Hebrew type to the audience of the third World Congress of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. Now nearly all scholars work with digital equipment and resources. 
 
Increasingly, scholars and practitioners have have become involved in creating digital resources and editions, using computational tools to analyse and represent their objects of study, designing digital interfaces and leading digital projects themselves. 
 
Are you one of these people?
 
We invite you to participate in a digital poster exhibition at the World Congress for Jewish Studies. We envision an opportunity to showcase and discuss completed projects and works in progress. 
 
The Seventeenth World Congress of Jewish Studies will take place at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, August 6 - 10, 2017
