Subject: DH Convalidator: LaTex documents needed
[Announcement of DH2015 is on its way!]
Dear DH conference participants,
As you may have already read in the Call for Papers for the DH2015
conference in Sydney next year, ADHO's infrastructure committee is
working on a procedure that will facilitate the production of the
conference proceedings for the annual DH conferences. For this purpose
DH ConValidator, a web-based tool is currently under development. It
will be made available in early 2015 for authors of accepted papers who
will be asked to submit final approved versions of their abstracts via
The tool will be able to deal both with common text editor formats
(probably docx and odt) and LaTeX documents. For the latter we would
like to ask those list readers for help, who submitted abstracts in
tex-format in the past: We plan to evaluate which are the packages that
are used commonly in those abstracts and therefore would appreciate it
very much if you could provide us with the tex-file of your submissions
or, if you don't want to share it, the information which packages you
included in it.
Please send the files or the information about the packages to Evelyn
Gius (evelyn.gius at uni-hamburg.de <mailto:evelyn.gius at uni-hamburg.de>)
who will take care of the package overview.
Thank you in advance for your valuable contribution to a much more
sustainable solution for the future conference proceedings!
