Subject:      DRH2005 -- Digital Resources for the Humanities - 2005 Call for
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

**** First Announcement and call for proposals: DRH 2005 **** DRH 2005: Digital Resources for the Humanities University of Lancaster, UK 4th - 7th September 2005 IMPORTANT DATES: * 31st January 2005: proposals can be submitted via the electronic submission form at the conference website. * 28th February, 2005: Deadline for submission of abstracts * 15th April, 2005: Notification of acceptance of papers, sessions, posters and workshops * April 2005: Registration opens * May 2005: Provisional programme announced. Conference Web Site: The DRH conferences have established themselves firmly in the UK and international calendar as a major forum bringing together scholars, postgraduate students, librarians, archivists, curators, information scientists and computing professionals in a unique and positive way, to share ideas and information about the creation, exploitation, use, management and preservation of digital resources in the arts and humanities. At this, the tenth DRH conference, we plan to encourage papers and sessions that focus on critical evaluation of the use of digital resources in the arts and humanities. What has the impact really been? What kinds of methodologies are being used? What are the assumptions that underlie our work? How do we know that the work that we accomplish is truly new and innovative? How does technology change the way that we work? The Conference will also address some of the key emerging themes and strategic issues that engagement with ICT is bringing to scholarly research in the arts and humanities, with a particular focus on advanced research methods. The kinds of questions that we would like to see addressed might include the following: what sort of research does ICT in the arts and humanities enable researchers to do that could not be done before at all? Does this enable 'old' research to be done in a significantly new way? In what ways does the technology serve the scholarship? Similarly, what are the key aspects of virtual research environments ("cyberinfrasture") which can facilitate collaborative research? Proposals for individual papers, sessions, workshops and posters are invited, and the abstract submission system at the conference website will be accepting proposals from January 31st, 2005. Types of presentation for which proposals are invited: Papers Proposals for papers should be no less than 750 words. Papers will be allocated 30 minutes for presentation, including questions. Sessions Sessions (90 minutes) take the form of either: Three papers. The session organizer should submit a 500-word statement describing the proposed session topic, and include abstracts of no less than 750 words for each paper. The session organizer must also indicate that each author is willing to participate in the session; or A panel of four to six speakers. The panel organizer should submit an abstract of 750-1500 words describing the panel topic, how it will be organized, the names of all the speakers, and an indication that each speaker is willing to participate in the session. Poster Presentations Poster presentations may include computer technology and project demonstrations. Posters presentations may be a more suitable way of presenting late-breaking results, or significant work in progress. There should be no difference in quality between poster presentations and papers, and both will be submitted to the same refereeing process. As an acknowledgement of the special contribution of the posters to the conference, the Programme Committee will once again award a prize for the best poster presentation. The Local Organising Committee is headed by Tony McEnery and Andrew Hardie, Department of Linguistics and English Language, University of Lancaster. Please contact the local organizers with any questions about registration or conference arrangements at Lancaster: [log in to unmask] The chair of the Programme Committee is Lorna Hughes, Assistant Director for Humanities Computing, New York University.
