Conference Web Site: http://www.drh.org.uk
The DRH conferences have established themselves firmly in the UK and
international calendar as a major forum bringing together scholars,
postgraduate students, librarians, archivists, curators, information
scientists and computing professionals in a unique and positive way, to
share ideas and information about the creation, exploitation, use,
management and preservation of digital resources in the arts and humanities.
At this, the tenth DRH conference, we plan to encourage papers and sessions
that focus on critical evaluation of the use of digital resources in the
arts and humanities.  What has the impact really been?  What kinds of
methodologies are being used?  What are the assumptions that underlie our
work?  How do we know that the work that we accomplish is truly new and
innovative? How does technology change the way that we work?
The Conference will also address some of the key emerging themes and
strategic issues that engagement with ICT is bringing to scholarly research
in the arts and humanities, with a particular focus on advanced research
methods.  The kinds of questions that we would like to see addressed might
include the following: what sort of research does ICT in the arts and
humanities enable researchers to do that could not be done before at all?
Does this enable 'old' research to be done in a significantly new way? In
what ways does the technology serve the scholarship?  Similarly, what are
the key aspects of virtual research environments ("cyberinfrasture") which
can facilitate collaborative research?
Proposals for individual papers, sessions, workshops and posters are
invited, and the abstract submission system at the conference website will
be accepting proposals from January 31st, 2005.
Types of presentation for which proposals are invited:
Proposals for papers should be no less than 750 words. Papers will be
allocated 30 minutes for presentation, including questions.
Sessions (90 minutes) take the form of either:
Three papers. The session organizer should submit a 500-word statement
describing the proposed session topic, and include abstracts of no less
than 750 words for each paper. The session organizer must also indicate
that each author is willing to participate in the session;
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.
Poster Presentations
Poster presentations may include computer technology and project
demonstrations. Posters presentations may be a more suitable way of
presenting late-breaking results, or significant work in progress. There
should be no difference in quality between poster presentations and papers,
and both will be submitted to the same refereeing process.
As an acknowledgement of the special contribution of the posters to the
conference, the Programme Committee will once again award a prize for the
best poster presentation.
The Local Organising Committee is headed by Tony McEnery and Andrew Hardie,
Department of Linguistics and English Language, University of Lancaster.

The chair of the Programme Committee is Lorna Hughes, Assistant Director
