    The DRH conferences

    The annual Digital Resources for the Humanities conference is the major
    forum for all those involved in, and affected by, the digitization of our
    cultural heritage: the scholar creating or using an electronic resource to
    further research; the teacher gathering Web resources into an online
    learning environment; the publisher or broadcaster integrating print or
    analogue with the digital to reach new audiences; the librarian, curator
    or archivist wishing to improve both access to and conservation of the
    digital information that characterizes contemporary culture and
    scholarship; the computer or information scientist seeking to apply new
    developments to the creation, exploitation and management of humanities
    resources. A volume of selected papers from the conferences is published
    annually by the Office for Humanities Communication at King's College
    London. See

    DRH 2002
    DRH 2002 will be held at the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh University
    Library, George Square, Edinburgh EH8 9LJ, Scotland UK, from 8th-11th
    September 2002. Conference information will be posted on the Web site at

    The academic programme of the conference will comprise academic papers,
    panel discussions, and poster presentations. An exhibition of products and
    services of interest to participants will form an important part of the
    conference. The conference is known for its friendly atmosphere and
    welcomes developers and users of digital resources from, amongst others,
    universities, libraries, archives, museums, galleries, broadcasters,
    publishers and community groups. The conference social programme will, we
    hope, encourage informal discussion and the chance to make lasting
    contacts between members of the different groups represented.

    The Conference Programme Committee seeks proposals for papers, panel
    sessions, and posters relating to the creation and use of digital
    resources in all aspects of work in the humanities.

    Prospective speakers are asked to bear in
    mind the following points:
    - Paper and session proposals should seek to develop themes and
    intellectual approaches which will be of interest and relevance across the
    subject domain. It is not sufficient simply to outline recent work on an
    individual project. Papers should take account of, and seek to address,
    strategic themes across the subject domain.
    - Preference will be given to papers which outline innovative technical
    approaches or explore subject areas which have been generally neglected by
    the conference communities.

    Areas on which DRH conferences have concentrated have included the
    creation of digital resources, providing access to digital projects, the
    application of digital resources to teaching and research, and digital
    preservation. The Conference Programme Committee of DRH 2002 will
    particularly welcome proposals which relate to the following themes:

    - Provision and management of access
    - Digital libraries, archives and museums
    - Time-based media and multimedia studies in music and performing arts
    - Other social sciences where these overlap significantly with the
    - Network technologies used to support international community programmes
    - The anticipated convergence between televisual, communication and
    computing media and its effect on the humanities
    - Information analysis, design and modelling
    in humanities research
    - Knowledge representation, including visualization and simulation

    Submitting Proposals The deadline for submitting proposals is 15th March,
    2002; notifications of acceptance will be sent out by 19th April 2002.

    Proposals should be submitted using the Call for Papers link to the online
    Web form from the conference Web page at http://www.drh2002.lib.ed.ac.uk/
    or (if you are unable to use Web forms) by email to

    Your submission should be text only, with no word processor formatting or
    graphics (final submissions of accepted papers may include graphics).

    Please note that all participants in the conference, including speakers,
    are expected to pay their own travel, conference and accommodation costs.
    All proposals will be reviewed by at least two referees with relevant
    expertise. The final decision on acceptance into the conference programme
    rests with the Programme Committee.

    For all types of proposal, authors are encouraged to provide a clear
    overview of the work to be presented; state how the proposal relates to
    the themes of the conference; outline any original or innovative methods,
    technical solutions or conclusions; outline the demonstrable value of the
    work to the broad humanities community. It is essential that the proposal
    makes clear how the work to be presented relates to the relevant work in
    the field.

    All proposals should be submitted in English. All proposals should include
    full name, institutional affiliation, postal address, telephone and email
    details for all participants.

    Papers: We invite proposals for conference papers lasting no more than 25
    minutes. Proposals should be between 750 and 1,000 words. Papers will be
    grouped into sessions of three papers.

    You are welcome to propose a session of three papers relating to a
    specific theme. In this case, session organisers should provide a clear
    description (c.250 words) of how the papers relate to each other, in
    addition to the three abstracts. Please note that all proposals for
    papers, whether individual submissions or part of a themed session, will
    be independently reviewed.

    Themed Panel Sessions: We invite proposals for themed panel sessions
    lasting no more than 90 minutes. Proposals should be between 1,000-1,500
    words. The panel organiser should include details of the individuals or
    organisations who have agreed to form the panel. Panel sessions are
    intended to provide a forum for discussion of a specific theme or issue,
    introduced by panel members.

    Posters: We invite proposals for posters. Proposals should be between 500
    and 750 words. Posters provide the opportunity for a visual, rather than
    oral, presentation of work within an informal atmosphere. Posters will be
    on display throughout the conference in a prominent area. Posters should
    not include software demonstrations. Where a software demonstration is
    required, the proposer should apply to be an exhibitor at the academic

    Conference Publications: A book of abstracts, containing the revised
    versions of all accepted papers, panel sessions and posters, will be
    provided to all conference delegates. These abstracts will also be
    published on the conference web site. A volume of Selected Papers will be
    published following the conference. All presenters who wish their paper to
    be considered for publication will be asked to submit a full version of
    their paper before the end of the conference.

    academic programme of the conference, is chaired by Jean Anderson,
    University of Glasgow (j.anderson@arts.gla.ac.uk).
