will be held in Sheffield, UK on 16-19 July 2008.

In the tradition of our biennial conference series this will be a
broad-ranging event open to all topics and disciplines relevant to
designing. However we will have a conference theme which will inform
the choice of keynote speakers and, we hope, stimulate debate:
UNDISCIPLINED! Rigour in emerging design disciplines and professions.

The Document Academy



March 28-29, 2008

University of Wisconsin-Madison
School of Library and Information Studies
Helen C. White Hall
Madison, Wisconsin USA

DOCAM '08 is the fifth Annual meeting of the
Document Academy, an international network of
scholars, artists and professionals in various
fields interested in the exploration of the
document as a useful approach, concept and tool
in Sciences, Arts, Business, and Society.

The aim of The Document Academy is to create an
interdisciplinary space for experimental and
critical research on documents in a wide sense,
drawing on traditions and experiences around the
world. It originated as a co-sponsored effort by
The Program of Documentation Studies, University
of Tromso, Norway and the School of Information,
University of California, Berkeley. For 2008, the
University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Library
and Information Studies will be hosting the meeting.

The conference will run from 9 AM Friday, March
28, to 5 PM Saturday, March 29. In order to keep
the open-ended discussion atmosphere of previous
DOCAMs alive along with a growing number of
participants, we have decided to have only
plenary sessions and a relatively limited, but
well-selected number of presentations.

Call for proposals:

Scholars, developers, artists and practitioners
working with document research and development
are invited to submit proposals for full and
short papers for plenary sessions and exhibits by December 1, 2007.

Full papers for plenary sessions will address these themes:

- DOCUMENT THEORY (general issues)
- DOCUMENT ANALYSIS (case-studies and methodological issues)

Length: 6000-7500 words

Short papers for plenary sessions will focus on

- DOCUMENT RESEARCH (theory, methods, case-studies)

Length: 2400=973600 words

Each author or group of authors of FULL papers
will have 45 minutes for their presentation,
including discussion; authors or groups
presenting SHORT papers will be allotted 30
minutes. The order of presentations will be
arranged according to themes as much as possible.

Conference language is English. Conference
organizers can provide an LCD projector; other
equipment is the responsibility of the presenter.

File format: RTF or PDF

All proposals must include:


- a short (500 words) verbal description of the work to be presented
