We apologize for any cross-postings and appreciate it if you could forward
this call to those who may be interested in this conference.

*Call for Papers/Panels/Posters*

*The 8th International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital

*Conference Theme: Digital Humanities Evolving: Past, Present, and Future*

Venue: National Chengchi University, Taipei

Dates: November 29 – December 1, 2017

While the debates over the definition, landscape, and scale of digital
humanities continue, digital humanists seem to have a consensus that
digital humanities are constantly evolving and facing new challenges.  Take
big data as an example.  Technologies automatically and instantly archive
what people say, what people do, and even what people think.  The rich
information provided by big data leads humanities research to a new
frontier that can hardly be imagined by classical humanists.  However, the
self-archived data contain real, virtual, and even fake contents.  How
shall digital archivists and digital humanists embrace big data and big
data analytics?  Alternatively, will the ubiquitous digitization
transform human
culture and make “digital humanities” simply become “humanities”?

Digitalization involves computing.  Digital humanists share the same tools
with computational social scientists to extract information, to analyze
social network, and to perform geospatial analysis.  Digital humanists have
also attempted to apply the tools of computational social sciences to model
and simulate the complex human experiences.   In the meanwhile,
computational social scientists are exploring sentiment modeling.  When the
research tools and topics of interest become common, how far can digital
humanists and social scientists collaborate to gain deeper insights into
common research problems and cope with shared challenges?

Continuing the legacy of the past 7 annual conferences of DADH, we welcome
the submissions of paper or poster abstracts and panel proposals related
to, but not limited to, the aforementioned issues, digital technologies and
applications, interdisciplinary research in humanities and social sciences
with the use of digital data, theoretical and epistemological
considerations in digital humanities, digital humanities education, digital
arts and music, digital infrastructure, cultural heritage, and internet
