Dear Colleagues,

Coming off a successful conference in Pittsburgh in July, the ACH Executive
Council now invites proposals to host the 2021 ACH Conference

The ACH Conference is the biennial conference of the Association for
Computers and the Humanities, the US-based member organization of the
Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). The ACH Conference
aims to provide a forum for conversations that accommodate an expansive
definition of digital humanities in a broad array of subject areas,
methods, and communities of practice. The event ran every other year from
1973-2005 as the ICCH/ACH Conference, and was reborn in 2019.

The ACH welcomes proposals from regional organizations or institutions
within the United States and outlying areas. This includes any group
ranging from emerging communities and new partnerships to those who have
been active for a long time and have organized regional conferences. ACH is
interested in supporting hosts and groups for whom organizing the
conference would build on previous regional DH activities and/or bolster
growing DH centers, projects, communities, and programs. ACH emphasizes
that bids do not need to replicate the structure of previous conferences,
and welcomes locally informed and creative programming.

*Please note the lead applicant must be a member of ACH at the time of

The bid timeline:

   - Expressions of interest - September 23
   - Submissions of bids to host - December 6
   - Selection of bidders - January 2020

More details, such as about committee organizational structure for
conference planning and the requirements for expressions of interest, may

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the workshop "Advancing Digital
Editing: TAG and Alexandria". The workshop Liège, Belgium.

Participants of this full-day workshop learn to work with TAG, an alternative
(graph-based) data model for text, which allows them to explore a flexible way
of editing complex texts. The goal of the workshop is not (only) to learn to
work with a new text editing tool, but primarily to approach text modeling in a
way that is not constrained by external models or by the assumptions built into
editing tools and software.

The workshop has room for about 20 participants. You can find more information
via on the workshop website
https://dhbenelux2019-alexandria.github.io/workshop/. You can apply to the
workshop by filling out the form provided here
http://2019.dhbenelux.org/workshops-details/ (register for workshop 2).

We are looking forward to seeing you in Liège!

On behalf of the organizers,

Elli Bleeker
