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.
