Assistant Bursaries, ADHO Bursaries

Dear DH folks,

while we are eagerly awaiting for more results from the DH program 
committee about the acceptance of submissions, let’s spread some other 
great news.

You can now book your hotel rooms for DH2012. An online booking form is 
available on our website. In order to make your travel plans, you may 
have a look at the preliminary conference program (still subject to 
changes): http://www.dh2012.uni-hamburg.de/conference/schedule/

We would like to encourage especially the young academics to participate 
in the DH2012. In the spirit of the conference theme „Digital Diversity: 
Cultures, languages and methods“ we hope to welcome students from all 
over the world. There are two award schemes to gain financial support:
If your submission for DH2012 was accepted, you can apply for the ADHO 
bursary award. If you have not submitted a paper or were unlucky and not 
selected, you still have the opportunity to get a student assistant 
bursary award for DH2012. This bursary is in exchange for a little help 
during the conference. Further detailed information can be found below.

We will keep you updated with more DH2012 news soon and are looking 
forward to seeing you in Hamburg!

Best wishes from your local hosts,
Chris and Katrin


Hotel Online Booking Form

We have blocked a large contingent of reservations for conference 
members at several hotels near the campus. Our conference support 
division, the University of Hamburg Marketing GmbH, will be handling the 
hotel reservations directly. The online booking form is now available on 
the DH2012 website, for more information, click here.

The university campus is situated right in the heart of Hamburg. There 
are lots of different places to stay. We will update you with some 
alternative suggestions for short-term apartments and budget 
accommodations soon.

Student Assistant Bursaries

The student assistant bursary scheme is designed to enable up to 12 
international students to participate in the Digital Humanities 
conference 2012 at the University of Hamburg. Successful applicants will 
be required to support the running of the conference for a duration of 
up to four and a half hours each day, but will otherwise be free to 
participate at no cost in all conference sessions and receptions. Each 
international student assistant will form a team with a local Hamburg

ADHO Bursaries

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) makes bursary 
awards to students and young scholars who have submissions accepted for 
presentation at the Digital Humanities 2012 conference. Both paper and 
poster submissions qualify for consideration. The recipients receive a 
cash award of 500 GBP to help defray expenses incurred in attending the 
conference such as the conference registration, airline/train fare, 
lodging, and meals paid by the recipient. Certificates are presented at 
the Conference Banquet, which winners are invited to attend free of 
charge, as guests of ADHO.

Please note that the official twitter hashtag for the DH conference was
