             Subject: Final Call: DRH2003: registrations / posters


    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 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

    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.
