        Subject: Two weeks left to submit proposals to host ACH2021

Dear Colleagues,

Could your institution be the next host of the Association for Computers
and the Humanities (ACH) Conference in 2021? The ACH Executive Council is
seeking proposals to host the 2021 ACH Conference, and they are due two
weeks from today, September 23.

The ACH Conference is the biennial gathering of the ACH, the US-based
member organization of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations.
The 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 successfully relaunched
in 2019, with the venue in Pittsburgh and the conference organized and
sponsored by local institutions, including the University of Pittsburgh,
Carnegie-Mellon University, and Duquesne University.

The ACH welcomes proposals from regional organizations or institutions
within the United States and outlying areas. Any group, ranging from
emerging communities and new partnerships to those who have been active for
a long time and have organized regional conferences, are welcome to submit.
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

conference planning and the requirements for expressions of interest, may

Kindest regards,
