Welcome to the 26th Pacific Neighborhood Consortium Annual Conference and Joint Meetings (PNC 2019)
This is an opportunity for researchers and developers to facilitate information exchanges among institutions of higher education in the Pacific Rim through computing and communications technology. PNC explores issues of information and technology exchange, interdisciplinary collaboration, and the development of the cultural knowledge contents. The theme for 2019 is Regionality and Digital Humanities: South-South Connections.
In fostering access to digitized data on the Pacific Rim, the PNC serves as a portal for access to digital research. It helps scholars to find the library, archive, and museum materials needed to support both teaching and research. The ultimate goal is to enable scholars to regard themselves, not as separated by vast distances, but as residents of a virtual neighborhood.

This conference is hosted by the NTU Digital Humanities Research Cluster.
