Association for Computers and the Humanities / International Conference on Computers and the Humanities

The Association for Computers and the Humanities arose from the community that started the "International Conference on Computing in the Humanities" conference, or ICCH, in 1971. The ACH was officially founded in 1978, and continued organizing a biennial conference until 2005, after which it became simply the "Digital Humanities" conference under the ADHO umbrella. From 1989-2005, the ACH and ALLC co-branded each others' conferences. ACH renewed its biennial conference in 2019, while maintaining its affiliation with ADHO. Until around 1990, ACH conferences were called "ICCH" conferences.

    The effort to establish ADHO began in Tuebingen, at the ALLC/ACH conference in 2002: a Steering Committee was appointed at the ALLC/ACH meeting in 2004, in Gothenburg, Sweden. At the 2005 meeting in Victoria, the executive committees of the ACH and ALLC approved the governance and conference protocols and nominated their first representatives to the ‘official’ ADHO Steering Committee and various ADHO standing committees. The 2006 conference was the first Digital Humanities conference.
