    News on Networking Cultural Heritage Resources
    from across the Community
    July 7, 2003


    Registration is now open for the annual Digital Resources for the
    Humanities conference. DRH (http://www.drh.org.uk/) is the major forum for
    all those involved in, and affected by, the digitization of our cultural
    heritage. It is a unique forum bringing together scholars, teachers,
    publishers and broadcasters, librarians, curators and archivists, and
    computer and information specialists. It provides an opportunity to
    consider the latest ideas in the creation and use of digital resources in
    all aspects of work in the humanities, in an informal and enjoyable


    This year's conference will be held at the University of Gloucestershire,
    Cheltenham UK, 31 Aug - 3 Sept 2003.


    Conference themes include:
        - The impact of access to digital resources on teaching and learning
        - Digital libraries, archives and museums
        - Time-based media and multimedia studies in performing arts
        - Network technologies used to support international community programmes
        - The anticipated convergence between televisual, communication and
           computing media and its effect on the humanities
        - Knowledge representation, including visualization and simulation


    This year we are also offering an extra opportunity for delegates to
    discuss the very latest DRH developments. There will be a special
    space for anyone wishing to present a poster on any topic relating to
    the themes of the conference. The object of this "late breaking news"
    call is to enable you to share ideas and discuss work in progress
    which has not yet reached the stage of being a formal academic
    paper. Space will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis,
    but we will go on accepting proposals up to the end of July. Please
    contact drh2003@glos.ac.uk with a brief (200 word max) description of
    your topic if you have something you'd like to present!

    The academic programme for the conference includes over 50 refereed
    papers, and a range of panel discussions, as well as poster
    presentations. This year's plenary speakers are Meg Bellinger,
    formerly of OCLC and now of Yale University Library, a key figure in
    the world of digital preservation; and Kim Veltman, Scientific
    Director of the Maastricht McLuhan Institute and co-ordinator of a
    European Network of Centres of Excellence in Digital Cultural
    Heritage. The conference will also feature an exhibition of
    leading-edge products and services of relevance to the DRH
    communities, and a range of social activities -- including dinner at
    the celebrated Cheltenham Gold Cup Race Course.


    The conference fee of 240 pounds includes full conference attendance
    and all social activities. Special rates are also available for
    students and those wishing to attend on a daily basis.
