DRH2003: FINAL CALL FOR REGISTRATION AND LATE-BREAKING NEWS
The deadline for registering to participate in the Digital Resources for
the Humanities 2003 conference is 15 August 2003.
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 atmosphere.
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 15 August 2003. Please
contact firstname.lastname@example.org 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
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; Kim Veltman, Scientific Director of the Maastricht McLuhan
Institute and co-ordinator of a European Network of Centres of Excellence
in Digital Cultural Heritage; and Theodor Holm Nelson, currently
Leverhulme Visiting Professor at the University of Nottingham.
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
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.
