Registration for these events is free and open to all, and we thank our partners and sponsors for making this possible. Each conference will comprise video presentations available to registered participants and an open Twitter discussion. A few days before the scheduled Twitter discussion, registered participants will gain access to the password-protected presentations and will have a chance to prepare questions and comments. During the scheduled time, presenters will tweet their project highlights and participate in a Q&A. The DHSI 2020 -Online Edition page has all conference details, schedules, and registration links. You can also find an overview of the events here: DHSI Conference and Colloquium (2-6, 9-10 June), /including/ the ADHO Pedagogy SIG Mini-Conference (6 June): The DHSI Conference and Colloquium offers an opportunity to present diverse, dynamic digital humanities research and projects within an engaging, collegial audience that actively fosters the ethos of the greater DHSI community. This year, the DHSI Conference & Colloquium will be hosted virtually and will also include presentations from the second conference of the Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) Special Interest Group for Digital Humanities Pedagogy and Training, as well as poster and demo sessions. The virtual conference will be held on June 26 and910 and consists of recorded presentations and a series of Twitter discussions. You can register for the conference here (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/virtual-dhsi-conference-colloquium- tickets-104459743906). Project Management in the Humanities (6 June): The Project Management in the Humanities virtual conference will be held onSaturday, June 6. Due to increasingly collaborative interdisciplinary projects, many humanities scholars find themselves as 'instant' or 'accidental' managers. They are leading teams of researchers from a variety of disciplines, research assistants, librarians and others as well as managing financial and other resources. This raises questions for exploration with regard to the application of project management in the humanities generally and digital humanities more specifically. This virtual conference will examine these questions through papers, presentations, and a Twitter discussion. Please register for the conference here. RTL Workshop (7 June): The RTL workshop (Right to Left) brings together researchers who are exploring the challenges, opportunities, and implications of digital engagements with languages written from left to right, such as Arabic, Hebrew, Perisan, Syriac, and Urdo. The RTL workshop embraces research related to the past, present and future of right-to-left languages and their multilingual, multiscript and multidirectional contexts. It aims to encourage digital research in right-to-left language cultures and to provide a context for thinking beyond the left-to-right-centric assumptions of contemporary computing. This year, the RTL workshop will be held virtually on Sunday, June 7 with pre-recorded talks and a Twitter conference. You can register for the eventhere (https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/virtual-right-to-left-rtl-workshop- tickets-104471073794). #GraphPoem (5 June): All those connected to DHSI and its 2020 events are invited to be part of the EPoetryevent #GraphPoemby MARGENTO on June 5 at2:00 PM Pacific time by contributing text files or weblinks to a collectively assembled dataset and/or run a script plotting the latter into a real-time evolving network.
