- THATCamp (The Humanities & Technology Camp): an "'unconference' [see Wikipedia] where humanists and technologists meet to work together for the common good." Started by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University in 2008, THATCamps are now held around the US and the world, and are a locus for innovative, collaborative DH work. The site provides details of upcoming THATCamps and records of past conferences, and #thatcamp hashtag on Twitter is used throughout the year for THATCamp-related discussions.

DH2011 took place in Stanford, DH2012 in Hamburg; DH2013 will be hosted by University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The ADHO provides bursaries to students and young scholars who are presenting at DH, and awards the Fortier prize for the best paper by a young scholar.
- The DH Summer Institute (DHSI) is an annual week-long summer institute at the University of Victoria that combines intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures that help participants share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies.
