DRH2003: CALL FOR REGISTRATION AND LATE-BREAKING NEWS
Registration is now open for the annual Digital Resources for the
Humanities conference. DRH (http://www.drh.org.uk/) is the major forum for
all those involved in, and affected by, the digitization of our cultural
heritage. It is a unique forum bringing together scholars, teachers,
publishers and broadcasters, librarians, curators and archivists, and
computer and information specialists. It provides an opportunity to
consider the latest ideas in the creation and use of digital resources in
all aspects of work in the humanities, in an informal and enjoyable
This year's conference will be held at the University of Gloucestershire,
Cheltenham UK, 31 Aug - 3 Sept 2003.
Conference themes include:
- The impact of access to digital resources on teaching and learning
- Digital libraries, archives and museums
- Time-based media and multimedia studies in performing arts
- Network technologies used to support international community programmes
- The anticipated convergence between televisual, communication and
computing media and its effect on the humanities
- Knowledge representation, including visualization and simulation
This year we are also offering an extra opportunity for delegates to
discuss the very latest DRH developments. There will be a special
space for anyone wishing to present a poster on any topic relating to
the themes of the conference. The object of this "late breaking news"
call is to enable you to share ideas and discuss work in progress
which has not yet reached the stage of being a formal academic
paper. Space will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis,
but we will go on accepting proposals up to the end of July. Please
contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief (200 word max) description of
your topic if you have something you'd like to present!
The academic programme for the conference includes over 50 refereed
papers, and a range of panel discussions, as well as poster
presentations. This year's plenary speakers are Meg Bellinger,
formerly of OCLC and now of Yale University Library, a key figure in
the world of digital preservation; and Kim Veltman, Scientific
Director of the Maastricht McLuhan Institute and co-ordinator of a
European Network of Centres of Excellence in Digital Cultural
Heritage. The conference will also feature an exhibition of
leading-edge products and services of relevance to the DRH
communities, and a range of social activities -- including dinner at
the celebrated Cheltenham Gold Cup Race Course.
The conference fee of 240 pounds includes full conference attendance
and all social activities. Special rates are also available for
students and those wishing to attend on a daily basis.
