New Methods/New Perspectives on Humanities Scholarship: A NeDimah/DARIAH Workshop

Tuesday 27 November 2012, 9.00am-3.00pm

Trinity Long Room Hub, Dublin, Ireland

For registration see http://nedimahdublin2012.eventbrite.com/

Digital technologies have opened up a wealth of methodologies that can augment and enhance more traditional research practice, allowing new ways to engage with the ever-growing web of digital data. This one-day workshop hosted by NeDIMAH with support from DARIAH will provide an introduction to these methods

NeDiMAH (Network for Digital Methods in the Arts and Humanities) is an ESF-funded network investigating the use and impact of digital methods on arts and humanities research in Europe. As part of the network's ongoing work, Trinity College’s Long Room Hub will be the venue for a free one-day symposium to analyse and evaluate the methods thus far developed within the network, and identify ways in which it can further assist scholarly research being carried out in the Digital Arts and Humanities.

This workshop will focus on the core areas which NeDIMAH has been investigating: space and time; information visualisation; linked data and ontological methods; building and developing collections for digital data for research; using large-scale text collections for research; digital scholarly editions; and  the impact of digital methods on scholarly publishing.

We invite digital humanists at all different career levels, from MPhil students to advanced researchers, to join us for this event.  Your experience and feedback is vital to the ongoing work of NeDIMAH and DARIAH.

The event is free but registration is required at  http://nedimahdublin2012.eventbrite.com/

You are invited to "The Difference that Makes a Difference 2013", An interdisciplinary workshop on Information: Space, Time, and Identity.

Location: The Open University and the MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, UK
Dates: 8-10 April 2013
Website: http://www.dtmd.org.uk

Deadline for one page abstracts - 3rd January 2013.

Information has been conceptualised in many different ways in different disciplines, and the DTMD series of workshops is a forum for sharing of those insights . We are keen to involve as many different people, from as many different disciplines, as possible in presenting and participating in the workshop. We invite a wide range of participants to give short (10 minute) presentations on their work as it relates to an understanding of information.

There will be six sessions:

Over days 1 and 2 the first four sessions consist of a keynote speaker followed by six or seven short presentations (which will have been selected by referees from submitted abstracts) then a panel discussion. 
1.	Information and Space. The relationship between information and space, 'meaning' in our physical environment, and the information landscapes that go beyond physical space. 
2.	Information and Time. Both the historic framework of the notion of information, and time as a 'dimension' in information – physics, entropy, information and ‘the arrow of time’. 
3.	Information and Identity. Identity (race, gender, nationality, class and sexual orientation, for example) as information and, conversely, information as identity. 
4.	What is information? Why are so many disciplines using informational concepts in their narratives? Is a Universal Theory of Information (UTI) possible?
Sessions 5 and 6 on day 3 draw together the insights from the first two days in two ways. First, through art, when the results of the work of the Workshop artist’s collaboration with delegates is presented and discussed. Second, a final keynote speech from Luciano Floridi, Professor of the Philosophy of Information will lead in to a panel discussion with the keynote speakers from the earlier sessions.

For more details see the workshop programme: http://www.dtmd.org.uk/programme and the Call for Papers: http://www.dtmd.org.uk/call-for-papers

Accepted abstracts will be published in a Workshop Digest which will be made available online prior to the event, and, following the workshop, delegates will be invited to submit papers for special issue of Kybernetes, based on papers presented at the workshop.

We hope to see you in Milton Keynes in April.

Best wishes,
Magnus Ramage and David Chapman on behalf of the Programme Committee: http://www.dtmd.org.uk/committee

JCDL 2013 CALL FOR PAPERS AND PROPOSALS

The ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2013) is a 
major international forum focusing on digital libraries and associated 
technical, practical, organizational, and social issues. JCDL 
encompasses the many meanings of the term digital libraries, including 
(but not limited to) new forms of information institutions and 
organizations; operational information systems with all manner of 
digital content; new means of selecting, collecting, organizing, 
distributing, and accessing digital content; theoretical models of 
information media, including document genres and electronic publishing; 
and theory and practice of use of managed content in science and education.

JCDL 2013 will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana (USA), 23-25 July 2013. 
The program is organized by an international committee of scholars and 
leaders in the digital libraries field and attendance is expected to 
include several hundreds of researchers, practitioners, managers, and 
students.

CONFERENCE FOCUS
The intended community for this conference includes those interested in 
all aspects of digital libraries such as infrastructure; institutions; 
metadata; content; services; digital preservation; system design; 
scientific data management; workflows; implementation; interface design; 
human-computer interaction; performance evaluation; usability 
evaluation; collection development; intellectual property; privacy; 
electronic publishing; document genres; multimedia; social, 
institutional, and policy issues; user communities; and associated 
theoretical topics. JCDL welcomes submissions in these areas.

Submissions that resonate with the JCDL 2013 theme of Digital Libraries 
at the Crossroads are particularly welcome; however, reviews, though 
they will consider relevance of proposals to digital libraries 
generally, will not give extra weight to theme-related proposals over 
proposals that speak to other aspects of digital libraries. The 
conference sessions, workshops and tutorials will cover all aspects of 
digital libraries.

Participation is sought from all parts of the world and from the full 
range of established and emerging disciplines and professions including 
computer science, information science, web science, data science, 
librarianship, data management, archival science and practice, museum 
studies and practice, information technology, medicine, social sciences, 
education and humanities. Representatives from academe, government, 
industry, and others are invited to participate.

JCDL 2013 invites submissions of papers and proposals for posters, 
demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops that will make the conference 
an exciting and creative event to attend. As always, the conference 
welcomes contributions from all the fields that intersect to enable 
digital libraries. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Collaborative and participatory information environments
* Cyberinfrastructure architectures, applications, and deployments
* Data mining/extraction of structure from networked information
* Digital library and Web Science curriculum development
* Distributed information systems
* Extracting semantics, entities, and patterns from large collections
* Evaluation of online information environments
* Impact and evaluation of digital libraries and information in education
* Information and knowledge systems
* Information policy and copyright law
* Information visualization
* Interfaces to information for novices and experts
* Linked data and its applications
* Personal digital information management
* Retrieval and browsing
* Scientific data curation, citation and scholarly publication
* Social media, architecture, and applications
* Social networks, virtual organizations and networked information
* Social-technical perspectives of digital information
* Studies of human factors in networked information
* Theoretical models of information interaction and organization
* User behavior and modeling
* Visualization of large-scale information environments
* Web archiving and preservation

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Paper authors may choose between two formats: Full papers and short 
papers. Both formats will be included in the proceedings and will be 
presented at the conference. Full papers typically will be presented in 
20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Short papers 
typically will be presented in 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions 
and discussion. Both formats will be rigorously peer reviewed. Complete 
papers are required -- abstracts and incomplete papers will not be reviewed.

Full papers report on mature work, or efforts that have reached an 
important milestone. Short papers will highlight efforts that might be 
in an early stage, but are important for the community to be made aware 
of. Short papers can also present theories or systems that can be 
described concisely in the limited space.

Full papers must not exceed 10 pages. Short papers are limited to at 
most 4 pages. All papers must be original contributions. The material 
must therefore not have been previously published or be under review for 
publication elsewhere. All contributions must be written in English and 
must follow the ACM http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html 
formatting guidelines (templates available for authoring in LaTex2e and 
Microsoft Word). Papers are to be submitted via the conference's 
EasyChair submission page: 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl13.

All accepted papers will be published by ACM as conference proceedings 
and electronic versions will be included in both the ACM and IEEE 
digital libraries.

POSTER AND DEMONSTRATION SUBMISSIONS
Posters permit presentation of late-breaking results in an informal, 
interactive manner. Poster proposals should consist of a title, extended 
abstract, and contact information for the authors, and should not exceed 
2 pages. Proposals must follow the conference's formatting guidelines 
and are to be submitted via the conference's EasyChair submission page: 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl13. Accepted posters will 
be displayed at the conference and may include additional materials, 
space permitting. Abstracts of posters will appear in the proceedings.

Demonstrations showcase innovative digital libraries technology and 
applications, allowing you to share your work directly with your 
colleagues in a high-visibility setting. Demonstration proposals should 
consist of a title, extended abstract, and contact information for the 
authors and should not exceed 2 pages. All contributions must be written 
in English and must follow the ACM 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html formatting guidelines 
(templates available for authoring in LaTex2e and Microsoft Word), and 
are to be submitted via the conference's EasyChair submission page:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl13.  Abstracts of 
demonstrations will appear in the proceedings.

PANELS AND INVITED BRIEFINGS
Panels and invited briefings will complement the other portions of the 
program with lively discussions of controversial and cutting-edge issues 
that are not addressed by other program elements. Invited briefing 
panels will be developed by the Panel co-chairs David Bainbridge 
(davidb at cs.waikato.ac.nz) and George Buchanan 
(George.Buchanan.1 at city.ac.uk) and will be designed to address a topic 
of particular interest to those building digital libraries -- they can 
be thought of as being mini-tutorials. Panel ideas may be stimulated or 
developed in part from synergistic paper proposals (with consensus of 
involved paper proposal submitters).

This year stand-alone formal proposals for panels also will be accepted 
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl13); however, please 
keep in mind that panel sessions are few and so relatively few panel 
proposals will be accepted. Panel proposals should include a panel 
title, identify all panel participants (maximum 5), include a short 
abstract as well as an uploaded extended abstract in PDF (not to exceed 
2 pages) describing the panel topic, how the panel will be organized, 
the unique perspective that each speaker brings to the topic, and an 
explicit confirmation that each speaker has indicated a willingness to 
participate in the session if the proposal is accepted. For more 
information about potential panel proposals, please contact the Panel 
co-chairs named above.

TUTORIAL SUBMISSIONS
Tutorials provide an opportunity to offer in-depth education on a topic 
or solution relevant to research or practice in digital libraries. They 
should address a single topic in detail over either a half-day or a full 
day. They are not intended to be venues for commercial product training.

Experts who are interested in engaging members of the community who may 
not be familiar with a relevant set of technologies or concepts should 
plan their tutorials to cover the topic or solution to a level that 
attendees will have sufficient knowledge to follow and further pursue 
the material beyond the tutorial. Leaders of tutorial sessions will be 
expected to take an active role in publicizing and recruiting attendees 
for their sessions.

Tutorial proposals should include: a tutorial title; an abstract (1-2 
paragraphs, to be used in conference programs); a description or topical 
outline of tutorial (1-2 paragraphs, to be used for evaluation); 
duration (half- or full-day); expected number of participants; target 
audience, including level of experience (introductory, intermediate, 
advanced); learning objectives; a brief biographical sketch of the 
presenter(s); and contact information for the presenter(s).

Tutorial proposals are to be submitted in electronic form via the 
conference's EasyChair submission page: 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl13.

WORKSHOP SUBMISSIONS
Workshops are intended to draw together communities of interest -- both 
those in established communities and those interested in discussion and 
exploration of a new or emerging issue. They can range in format from 
formal, perhaps centering on presentation of refereed papers, to 
informal, perhaps centering on an extended round-table discussions among 
the selected participants.

Submissions should include: a workshop title and short description; a 
statement of objectives for the workshop; a topical outline for the 
workshop; identification of the expected audience and expected number of 
attendees; a description of the planned format and duration (half-day, 
full-day, or one and a half day); information about how the attendees 
will be identified, notified of the workshop, and, if necessary, 
selected from among applicants; as well as contact and biographical 
information about the organizers. Finally, if a workshop or closely 
related workshop has been held previously, information about the earlier 
sessions should be provided -- dates, locations, outcomes, attendance, etc.

Workshop proposals are to be submitted in electronic form via the 
conference's EasyChair submission page: 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl13.

DOCTORAL SUBMISSIONS
The Doctoral Consortium is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over 
the world who are in the early phases of their dissertation work. 
Ideally, students should have written or be close to completing a thesis 
proposal, and be far enough away from finishing the thesis that they can 
make good use of feedback received during the consortium.

Students interested in participating in the Doctoral Consortium should 
submit an extended abstract describing their digital library research. 
Submissions relating to any aspect of digital library research, 
development, and evaluation are welcomed, including: technical advances, 
usage and impact studies, policy analyses, social and institutional 
implications, theoretical contributions, interaction and design 
advances, and innovative applications in the sciences, humanities, and 
education. See http://jcdl2013.org/doctoral-consortium for a more 
extensive description of the goals of the Doctoral Consortium and for 
complete proposal requirements.

Doctoral consortium proposals are to be submitted via the conference's 
EasyChair submission page: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl13

IMPORTANT NOTES FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS
All contributions must be submitted in electronic form via the JCDL 2013 
submission Web page, following ACM 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html?format guidelines and 
using the ACM template. Please submit all papers in PDF format.

Dear all,

The D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum will be open as part of Dundee's Light Night on Friday 23 November, 9-10pm. As well as our amazing animals from around the world, we will also be premiering the latest acquisition in our Art Funded RENEW project to build a collection of art inspired by D'Arcy's ideas and collections.

Daniel Brown is a designer, programmer and artist, specialising in the fields of Creative Digital Technology and Interactive Design and Applied Arts. Since 1999, he has been acknowledged as a pioneer in the new media field. He was chosen as London Design Museum's Designer of the Year in 2004 and since then selected for The Observer's '80 people who will define the next 10 years' and Design Week's Hottest 50 Designers. His clients have included Selfridge's, Sony, the Wellcome Foundation and Saatchi & Saatchi.

Like many working in the field of computer art, D'Arcy Thompson's work has been an important influence on Daniel's work: "for me mathematics is the language of nature," he says. Brown began a series called 'On Growth and Form' in 1999 - crafted by complex mathematics rather than by hand, these works use computer code to generate hyper-realistic, never repeating forms that explode hypnotically into patterns before the viewer's eyes. Most recently, a version was acquired by the V&A in 2009. We have commissioned Daniel to create a new generation of the series, using imagery from the collections in the museum.

Also on display will be many of the other works acquired so far for the project, including pieces by Will Maclean, Roger Wilson, Bruce Gernand and Henry Moore. We hope to see you on Friday evening. Please enter by the main front door of the Carnelley Building (just behind the University Tower). You can find out about the rest of the Light Night programme at http://www.dundee.com/christmas-light-night-2012.html
