Reminder - DH2017 abstract deadline is just over a week away!

At DH2016 in Krakow, geohumanities topics were very well represented  
in multiple sessions, workshops and posters.  I am happy to share with  
you that additional geohumanities scholars have volunteered to review  
this year, further strengthening the review process for our area of  
interest. Thank you all in advance!

Please see CFP below -

I: GENERAL INFORMATION

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites submission
of abstracts for its annual conference, on any aspect of digital
humanities. This includes, but is not limited to:

    - Humanities research enabled through digital media, artificial
    intelligence or machine learning, software studies, or information design
    and modeling;
    - Social, institutional, global, multilingual, and multicultural aspects
    of digital humanities;
    - Computer applications in literary, linguistic, cultural, and
    historical studies, including public humanities and interdisciplinary
    aspects of modern scholarship;
    - Quantitative stylistics and philology, including big data and text
    mining studies;
    - Digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital
    games, and electronic literature;
    - Emerging technologies such as physical computing, single-board
    computers, minimal computing, wearable devices, applied to humanities
    research; and
    - Digital humanities in pedagogy and academic curricula.

The theme of the 2017 conference is ?Access/Acc?s?: contributions that
focus on knowledge mobilization, public-facing scholarship, collaboration
among scholars and communities, open access to code, software, research and
results, and aspects of digital humanities research and publication
involving accessibility technologies are particularly welcome. The
conference will be officially bilingual in French and English, since Canada
is a bilingual country: so we invite proposals for presentations
particularly in both languages, as well as in the other official ADHO
languages (German, Italian, Spanish).
Presentations may include:

    - Posters (abstract maximum 750 words)
    - Short papers (abstract maximum 1500 words)
    - Virtual short papers (abstract maximum 1500 words)
    - Long papers (abstract 1500 words)
    - Multiple paper sessions, including panels (regular abstracts +
    approximately 500-word overview)
    - Pre-conference workshops and tutorials (proposal maximum 1500 words)

The deadline for submitting poster, short paper, long paper, and multiple
paper session proposals to the international Program Committee is 11:59pm
GMT, 1 November 2016. Presenters will be notified of acceptance by 17
February 2017.

The deadline for submitting workshops proposed by a Special Interest Group
(SIG) is 11:59pm GMT, 16 December 2016, with notice of acceptance by 30
January 2017.

The deadline for workshop and tutorial proposals is 11:59pm GMT, 17
February 2017, with notice of acceptance by 10 March 2017.

https://www.conftool.pro/dh2017/

When submitting proposals, previous Digital Humanities conference
participants and reviewers should use their existing accounts rather than
setting up new ones. If you have forgotten your username or password,
please contact Program Committee Chair Diane Jakacki: diane {dot} jakacki
{at} bucknell {dot} edu.

To facilitate the production of the conference proceedings, authors of
accepted papers will be asked to submit final approved versions of their
abstracts via the DHConvalidator, available through ConfTool, which creates
a TEI text base of conference abstracts for further processing.

II: TYPES OF PROPOSALS

Proposals may be of seven types: (1) poster presentations; (2) short paper
presentations; (3) virtual short paper presentations; (4) long papers; (5)
three-paper, half-panel or full-panel sessions; (6) pre-conference
workshops and tutorials; and (7) pre-conference workshops endorsed by a
Special Interest Group. Based on peer review and its mandate to create a
balanced and varied program, the Program Committee may offer acceptance in
a different category from the one initially proposed. The committee will
not normally accept more than a total of two submissions from one primary
or co-author. Papers and posters may be given in English, French, German,
Italian, or Spanish. For the first time at DH2017, the program committee
will work towards encouraging widespread ?whispering? ? community ad hoc
translation and/or multilingual resources, like visual aids ? to foster and
facilitate exchanges and dialogue among practitioners in the two languages
of the conference as well as the other ADHO official languages.

Poster Presentations

Poster proposals (500 to 750 words) may describe work on any relevant topic
or offer project and software demonstrations. Posters are appropriate for
projects in early stages of development and for demonstrations of tools and
platforms. Poster presentations are intended to be interactive with the
opportunity to exchange ideas one-on-one with attendees.

Short Papers

Short paper proposals (750 to 1500 words) are appropriate for reporting on
experiments or works in progress or for describing newly conceived tools or
software in early stages of development. This category of presentation
allows for up to five short papers in a single session, with the length
held to a strict 10 minutes each in order to allow time for questions.

Virtual Short Papers

For DH 2017 the Local Organizers have agreed to experiment with the
inclusion of a special virtual track for short paper presentations.
Submission parameters remain the same as with the short papers: proposals
(750 to 1500 words) that report on experiments or works in progress or that
describe newly conceived tools or software in early stages of development.

While the intent of this track will be on bi-directional communication,
presenters will be expected to produce in advance a video of their
presentation of no more than 10 minutes in length, in case of technical
difficulties with a real-time connection. Proposals in this category should
specify the virtual track in the abstract. Please, note that the presenters
accepted for a virtual short paper will have also to register for the
conference.

Long Papers

Proposals for long papers (750 to 1500 words) are appropriate for
substantial, completed, and previously unpublished research; reports on the
development of significant new methodologies or digital resources; and/or
rigorous theoretical, speculative, or critical discussions. Individual
papers will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for
questions.

Proposals relating to the development of new computing methodologies or
digital resources should indicate how the methods are applied to research
and/or teaching in the humanities and what their impact has been in
formulating and addressing research questions; they should also include
critical assessments of their application in the humanities. Papers that
concentrate on a particular tool or digital resource should cite
traditional as well as computer-based approaches to the problem and should
include critical assessments of the computing methodologies used. All
proposals should include relevant citations to sources in the literature.

Multiple Paper Sessions
These consist usually of one 90-minute panel of four to six speakers or
three long papers on a single theme. For DH 2017, we also invite proposals
for one 45-minute panel of two to three speakers. Panel organizers should
submit an abstract of 750 to 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.

All paper session organizers should submit a statement of approximately 500
words describing the session topic, include abstracts of 750 to 1500 words
for each paper, and indicate that each author is willing to participate in
the session. Papers that are submitted as part of a special session may not
be submitted individually for consideration in another category. Since the
conference offers an important occasion to attract new scholars to specific
research areas, those submitting proposals for panels and paper sessions
are advised to ensure that the constitution of the panel either reflects
the constitution of the field and/or research topic that is being addressed
or explicitly address problems in that area. In case the proposer?s own
network is too limited, the Program Committee can advise them on whom to
contact to broaden the panel.

Pre-Conference Workshops and Tutorials

Participants in pre-conference workshops and tutorials will be expected to
register for the full conference as well as pay a small additional fee.
Tutorials are normally intensive introductions to specific techniques,
software packages or theoretical approaches with a small number of
participants. Workshop proposals may take many forms, including proposals
with a full slate of speakers and presentations, as well as proposals to
issue an independent call for papers from which submissions will be chosen.

Proposals should provide the following information:

    - Title and brief description of the content or topic and its relevance
    to the digital humanities community (not more than 1500 words);
    - Full contact information for all tutorial instructors or workshop
    leaders, including a one-paragraph statement summarizing their research
    interests and areas of expertise;
    - Description of target audience and expected number of participants
    (based, if possible, on past experience); and
    - 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.

And workshop proposals must include:

    - Intended length and format of the workshop (minimum half-day; maximum
    one-and-a-half days);
    - Proposed budget (as workshops are expected to be self-financing); and
    - If the workshop is to have its own call for participation, 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.

Workshops endorsed by a SIG:
Workshops endorsed by a SIG and focused on a topic related to the concerned
SIG are required to follow the same instructions as other workshops, but
proposers should also note that:

    - They have to be endorsed by a SIG
    - The deadline application is earlier (see above)
    - They should have at least 10 confirmed participants

III: ADHO CONFERENCE CODE OF CONDUCT

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) is dedicated to
creating a safe, respectful, and collegial conference environment for the
benefit of everyone who attends and for the advancement of research and
scholarship in fields supported by our constituent organizations. The ADHO
Digital Humanities conference Code of Conduct is available at
http://adho.org/administration/conference-coordinating-program-committee/adho-conference-code-conduct.

IV: VENUE AND THEME
