Call for Papers for Junior Scholars – English Version
[Deutsche Version siehe unten]

Are you an Egyptologist or a Papyrologist? Do you conduct or plan research (master thesis, dissertation, etc.) in the field of Digital Humanities? How do you manage your data? Are you involved into new forms of teaching? Do you want to bring along your field into society and could talk about innovative methods? Our mission is to bring people together who envision a future for “Altertumswissenschaften” in times of transition in what is often called the “Digital Turn”. From November 4 to 6, 2015 we would like to gather especially Egyptologists and Papyrologists for two days of presentations and one day for a workshop. This call for papers has four key research areas:

Day 1:
1) How to structure, organize and represent data? Workflow
2) Which Fields of Research are relevant? Established and Emerging Use Cases

Day 2:
3) How to train the next generations? Teaching
4) How to impact society? Citizen Science and Public Engagement

The workshop on day 3 will be reserved for discussion in small groups, touching the issues of Disruptive Technologies, Annotated Corpora, and leaves room for general discussions.

If you are interested in presenting a paper (20 minutes plus 10 minutes discussion or 30 minutes plus 15 minutes of discussion), please send us a title, duration, an abstract (max. one page) and a short CV. Let us also know if you would like to attend the workshop on day 3. Please send all the required information to Monica Berti and Franziska Naether by September 15, 2015. We look forward to your submissions and to seeing you in Leipzig!

There is no conference fee. Participants have to make their own hotel and travel arrangements under the usual travel regulations (economy class airfare, 2nd class train, up to 70 EUR per night for hotel, 70 EUR per day spending money).
