As you may have seen, the Call for Proposals for DH 2014 went out recently.  See here for a complete description - http://adho.org/announcements/2013/call-proposals-digital-humanities-2014   The deadline is Nov. 1 for a paper/poster/panel.  We look forward to a great representation of GeoHumanities projects and discussions in Lausanne.

In addition, the workshop proposals are due Feb. 21. As a SIG, we may host a Pre-conference Workshop or Tutorial.  What topics would you like for the GeoHumanities SIG to offer?  Would you like to present a workshop or tutorial on behalf of the SIG?

The 2014 Call for Workshops & Tutorials is not yet out, however the following is the Call from last year that you may use as a guide.

Pre-Conference Workshops and Tutorials

Participants in pre-conference workshops or tutorials will be expected to register for the full conference as well as pay a small additional fee.

Proposals should provide the following information:

  *   a title and brief description of the content or topic and its relevance to the DH community (not more than 1500 words);
  *   full contact information for all tutorial instructors or workshop leaders, including a one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas of expertise;
  *   a description of target audience and expected number of participants (based, if possible, on past experience);
  *   and any special requirements for technical support.

Additionally, tutorial proposals should include:

  *   a brief outline showing that the core content can be covered in a half day (approximately 3 hours, plus breaks). In exceptional cases, full-day tutorials may be supported as well.

And workshop proposals must include:

  *   the intended length and format of the workshop (minimum half-day; maximum one and a half days);
  *   a proposed budget (as DH workshops are expected to be self-financing);
  *   and, if the workshop is to have its own CFP, a deadline and date for notification of acceptances, and a list of individuals who have agreed to be part of the workshop’s program committee.

Preconference workshops can be organized for Monday 7 July 2014 and Tuesday 8 July 2014 in the new EPFL SwissTech conference center<http://conventioncenter.epfl.ch/>. They can last a half-day or a full-day.

We look forward to hearing your ideas for workshops and tutorials.
