[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 
this tool.

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!

Chris Meister
