Call for Papers Announcement

I. General

The international Programme Committee invites submissions of abstracts
of between 750 and 1500 words on any aspect of humanities computing and
the digital humanities, broadly defined to encompass the common ground
between information technology and issues in humanities research and
teaching. As always, we welcome submissions in any area of the
humanities, particularly interdisciplinary work. We especially encourage
submissions on the current state of the art in humanities computing and
the digital humanities, and on recent and expected future developments
in the field.

Suitable subjects for proposals include, for example,
* text analysis, corpora, corpus linguistics, language processing,
language learning
* creation, delivery and management of humanities digital resources
* collaboration between libraries and scholars in the creation,
delivery, and management of humanities digital resources
* computer-based research and computing applications in all areas of
literary, linguistic, cultural, and historical studies, including
interdisciplinary aspects of modern scholarship
* use of computation in such areas as the arts, architecture, music,
film, theatre, new media, and other areas reflecting our cultural
heritage
* research issues such as: information design and modelling; the
cultural impact of the new media
* the role of digital humanities in academic curricula

Proposals should report significant and substantive results and will
include reference to pertinent work in the field (up to 10 items) as
part of their critical assessment.

The range of topics covered by humanities computing can also be
consulted in the journal of the associations: Literary and Linguistic
Computing (LLC), Oxford University Press.

The deadline for submitting paper, session and poster proposals to the
Programme Committee is November 1, 2006 (midnight CST). All submissions
will be refereed. Presenters will be notified of acceptance February 1,
2007.

The electronic submission form will be available at the conference site
from October 1st, 2006. See below for full details on submitting
proposals.

Proposals for (non-refereed, or vendor) demos and for pre-conference
tutorials and workshops should be discussed directly with the local
conference organizer as soon as possible.

For more information on the conference in general please visit the
conference web site, at http://www.digitalhumanities.org/dh2007/.

II. Types of Proposals

Proposals to the Programme Committee may be of three types: (1) papers,
(2) poster presentations and/or software demonstrations (poster/demos),
and (3) sessions (either three-paper or panel sessions). The type of
submission must be specified in the proposal.

Proposals to the Programme Committee may be presented in English and one
of the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian,
Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. Conference presentations may be in
these languages as well, and the Programme Committee encourages
presenters to consider multilingual presentations (for example, a
presentation in one language with accompanying slides or handouts
accommodating speakers of another language).

1) Papers

Proposals for papers (750-1500 words) should describe original work:
either completed research which has given rise to substantial results,
or the development of significant new methodologies, or rigorous
theoretical, speculative or critical discussions. Individual papers will
be allocated 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions.

Proposals that concentrate on the development of new computing
methodologies should make clear how the methodologies are applied to
research and/or teaching in the humanities, and should include some
critical assessment of the application of those methodologies in the
humanities. Those that concentrate on a particular application in the
humanities should cite traditional as well as computer-based approaches
to the problem and should include some critical assessment of the
computing methodologies used. All proposals should include conclusions
and references to important sources. Those describing the creation or
use of digital resources should follow these guidelines as far as
possible.

2) Poster Presentations and Software Demonstrations (Poster/Demos)

Poster presentations may include computer technology and project
demonstrations. The term poster/demo refers to the different possible
combinations of printed and computer based presentations. The
poster/demo sessions build on the recent trend of showcasing some of the
most important and innovative work being done in humanities computing.
By definition, poster presentations and project demonstrations are less
formal and more interactive than a standard talk. They provide the
opportunity to exchange ideas one-on-one with attendees and to discuss
their work in detail with those most deeply interested in the same
topic. Presenters will be provided with about two square meters of board
space to display their work. They may also provide handouts with
examples or more detailed information. Poster/demos will remain on
display throughout the conference, but there will also be a separate
conference session dedicated to them, when presenters should be prepared
to explain their work and answer questions. Additional times may also be
assigned for software or project demonstrations.

There should be no difference in quality between poster/demo
presentations and papers, and the format for proposals is the same for
both. The same academic standards should apply in both cases, but
posters/demos may be a more suitable way of presenting late-breaking
results, or significant work in progress, including pedagogical
applications. Both will be submitted to the same refereeing process. The
choice between the two modes of presentation (poster/demo or paper)
should depend on the most effective and informative way of communicating
the scientific content of the proposal.

As an acknowledgement of the special contribution of the posters and
demonstrations to the conference, the Programme Committee will award a
prize for the best poster.

3) Sessions

Sessions (90 minutes) take the form of either:

Three papers. The session organizer should submit a 500-word statement
describing the session topic, include abstracts of 750-1500 words for
each paper, and 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.

The deadline for session proposals is the same as for proposals for
papers, i.e. November 1, 2006.

III. Format of the Proposals

All proposals must be submitted electronically using the on-line
submission form, which will be available at the conference web site from
October 1st, 2006.

IV. Bursaries for Young Scholars

A limited number of bursaries for young scholars will be made available
to those presenting at the conference. If you wish to be considered for
a bursary, please refer to information about the bursary schemes
available from the Association for Computing in the Humanities
(http://www.ach.org/ach_bursary/) and the Association for Literary and
Linguistic Computing (http://www.allc.org/awards/bursary.htm).

Applications may be made to either the ACH or the ALLC, but not both
organizations.
