Girona, 2-4 July 2020

Organized by Commission on Science & Literature DHST/IUHPST and the
Càtedra Dr. Bofill de Ciències i Humanitats

Third call for papers and extension deadline (March 15^th )

Following the successful three International Conferences on Science and
Literature which took place in Athens, Poellau and Paris, this
Conference is the fourth to be organized under the aegis of the
Commission on Science and Literature DHST/IUHPST. The fourth
International Conference will be organized by the Càtedra Dr. Bofill de
Ciències I Humanitats (Dr Bofill Chair on Science and the Humanities)
integrated at the University of Girona (UdG) with the technical support
of the Commission on Science and Literature. The conference includes
communications with public lectures (we are glad to announce that our
list of keynote speakers includes the prestigious scholar, Simon J.
Schaffer, from the University of Cambridge).

As it was the case with the first three Conferences, the fourth one does
not have a specific theme, as its intent continues to be the creation of
an open forum for all scholars interested in Science and Literature.
Nevertheless, the Conference will be organized along thematic sessions.
Those proposed by the Organizing Committee are:

·Science in Western Art

·Literature and Medicine

·Science and Religion

·Poetry and Science

·Scientific Genres in Science Fiction

·Mathematics, Physics and Literature

·Women in the History of Science, Philosophy and Literature

Other themes, according to the papers accepted by the Scientific
Committee, can be organized.

Proposals for individual papers or panels of three or four papers should
be submitted until March 15^th , 2020, with an extension deadline from
previous CfP. They must include the title of the paper (or the theme of
the panel), name and affiliation of the author(s), an abstract of no
more than 350 words and a short CV. Proposals and inquiries about
practical matters may be sent to gvlahakis@yahoo.com
 and cgamez@unav.es .
An international scientific committee will review the submissions and
notice of acceptance will be sent at mid-March 2020. Participants will
have the opportunity to submit their paper to be considered for
publication in a special issue of Interdisciplinary Science Reviews.

Juan Ortega will be the chair of the Local Organizing Committee.

Registration: March 15^th to May 30^th , 2020

Registration fees (include coffee, tea, refreshments and Conference
material): 100 Euros

Fees for students and early career scholars: 50 Euros

Participants are asked to make their own arrangements concerning their
accommodation in Girona, but the Conference organizers have published
useful information and interesting offers (discounts on bookings are
available until May 31^st ). There is also a 35% discount for those
travelling to Girona with RENFE (the Spanish national railway company).

        From: Diane Jakacki 
        Subject: Call for Hosts, DH2023

The Conference Coordinating Committee of the Alliance of Digital 
Humanities Organizations 
(http://www.adho.org/, ADHO) 
invites proposals to host the Digital Humanities Conference in 2023.

Digital Humanities (DH) is ADHO's annual international conference. 
ADHO's constituent organizations are the European Association for 
Digital Humanities (http://eadh.org/, EADH); 
the Association for Computers and the Humanities (http://ach.org/, ACH); 
the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities / Société canadienne des 
humanités numériques (http://csdh-schn.org/, CSDH/SCHN); 
the Australasian Association for Digital Humanities (http://aa-dh.org/, 
centerNet (http://dhcenternet.org/); 
Humanistica, l'association francophone des humanités numériques 
the Japanese Association for Digital Humanities 
(http://www.jadh.org/, JADH); 
the Digital Humanities Association of Southern Africa 
Red de Humanidades Digitales 
(http://www.humanidadesdigitales.net/, RedHD); 
and the Taiwanese Association for Digital Humanities 
(http://tadh.org.tw/en/index.php/conference/, TADH). 

The next joint DH conference (DH2020, https://dh2020.adho.org/) 
will be held in Ottawa, CA, co-organized by the University of Ottawa and 
Carleton University in alliance with CSDH, 22-24 July 2020. DH2021 will 
be held in Tokyo, Japan, organized by the University of Tokyo 25-30 July 
2021. DH2022 will be held in Graz, Austria, organized by the University 
of Graz.

For DH2023 the call for hosts is 'open', meaning that we invite bids 
from academic institutions anywhere in the world in coordination with a 
designated ADHO constituent organization (see list above). We are 
particularly interested in proposals from institutions or groups of 
institutions that 1) have developed or are developing digital humanities 
communities and organizations, 2) have not previously hosted a DH 
conference, and/or 3) are interested in developing new modes of 
conference organization and participation. Please note that the local 
organizers must be members of one of the ADHO constituent organizations 
listed above, or their associate organizations.
 Conference Information

The conference has traditionally attracted between 500-1000 attendees. 
It consists of 3 days of panels, papers and posters, preceded by 2 days 
of pre-workshops and pre-tutorials. There are normally 6 or more 
parallel sessions per time slot and a small number of plenary 
presentations and receptions. Meetings of the committees of ADHO's 
constituent organizations (COs) precede the conference, and lunchtime 
slots are normally used for the member meetings of the COs. The 
peer-reviewed academic program is developed by an international Program 
Committee, which is appointed by the COs. Local organizers may want to 
explore the feasibility of innovative forms of participation that would 
reduce environmental impact.
 Local Organizers' Responsibilities

Local organizers at the host institution are responsible for developing 
the conference website, providing facilities, organizing a conference 
banquet, and coordinating any other social events that the local hosts 
think appropriate. The conference is entirely self-financed through 
conference fees and any other financial contributions that ADHO or the 
local organizer is able to arrange. ADHO provides partial financial 
underwriting of the conference (and can, in certain circumstances, 
advance small amounts of funds for expenses that need to be prepaid) and 
works together with the local organizers to ensure that registration 
fees and other income will support all conference expenditures; the 
details can be found in the ADHO Conference Protocol 
and related documentation. ADHO also finances certain conference awards, 
such as named prizes or bursaries. In consultation with the ADHO Program 
Committee, the local organizers may suggest plenary speakers whose 
travel, subsistence, and registration must be funded from the conference 
budget; again, see the Conference Protocol for details.

The local organizers are expected to set three levels of registration 
fees: for members of ADHO constituent organizations; for non-members; 
and for students.

ADHO uses the conference management system ConfTool 
and the ADHO Infrastructure and Conference Coordinating committees 
provide support for this system, including access to data from previous 
conferences. Local organizers are required to use the ConfTool system 
for registering participants and including them in special events such 
as the banquet, but actual credit card payments may be processed outside 
ConfTool by the local organizer.
 Proposal Process

For DH2023 we are introducing a slightly modified process:

Parties interested in submitting a proposal should contact a Constituent 
Organization officer by 28  Februaryto express interest and request 
support. Potential organizers then inform the chair of the ADHO 
Conference Coordinating Committee, Diane Jakacki (dkj004@bucknell.edu), 
of their intention to submit a bid (no later than 31 March). The CCC chair 
will then provide a packet of information and guidelines including protocols, 
codes of conduct, financial models, and examples of past successful conference 
bids, as well as a memorandum of understanding between ADHO and local organizers. 
Documentation can be found here: http://adho.org/conference 

Proposals should be submitted to D.Jakacki by 15 May 2020.

Written proposals should include the following:

   * an overview of facilities at the host institution

   * a summary of local institutional engagement and support for the
     organizers, and contingency plans in case of problems

   * possible arrangements for social events, including the conference

   * options for accommodation, including provisional costs and special
     attention to low-cost student housing

   * travel information and advice for participants

   * a provisional budget, with an estimated registration fee

   * options for payment (credit card, foreign currency, etc.) by

   * a brief outline of potential approaches to conference sponsorship

   * any other information that will help the ADHO Steering Committee
     make a selection

The DH2023 host will be selected at the DH2020 conference in Ottawa, 
Canada. Proposers must be prepared to give a short presentation and to 
answer questions at the ADHO Constituent Organization Board meeting on 
the 20th of July at DH2020 in Ottawa.
