The DRH conferences have established themselves firmly in the UK and
international calendar as a forum that brings together scholars, librarians,
archivists, curators,
information scientists and computing professionals in a unique and positive
way, to share ideas and information about the creation, exploitation,
management and preservation of digital resources in the arts and humanities.

Following a number of requests for extensions to the deadline for
submissions to DRH99, the organisers have agreed to receive submissions of
papers and panels up to 19 March 99. Proposals for academic papers, themed
panel sessions, posters, demos and workshops are invited. Deadlines are:
Papers and panels : 19 March 99
Posters and demos : 29 March 99
Workshops : 29 March 99.

Full details and submission forms may be found at the URL given above.

Academic and commercial publishers and developers of digital resources for
the arts and humanities are invited to exhibit at DRH'99 in the Great Hall
at King's College London.

For the four days of the conference, individual exhibition space will be
provided in the Great Hall at King's College London, on the Strand. There
exhibitors will have the opportunity to demonstrate their electronic
resources and show relevant books to conference delegates. Sales of
commercial products at the conference is encouraged.

The plenary sessions of the conference and the refreshment breaks will also
take place in the Great Hall, which will be the focal point for the
conference. The general conference sessions will take place in rooms
adjacent to the Great Hall.

Exhibitors will be encouraged to submit information on their activities,
products and resources. Descriptions of electronic resources and related
products on exhibit will be published in a separate section of the
conference Proceedings, on paper and in electronic form, to provide a
valuable source for delegates.
