About the conference
The 5th DH Benelux Conference will take place on 6 - 8 June 2018 at the International Institute for Social History (IISH) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and will be organised by the KNAW Humanities Cluster in Amsterdam. DH Benelux is an initiative that aims to further the collaboration between Digital Humanities activities in Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg. The conference serves as a platform for the community of interdisciplinary DH researchers to meet, present and discuss their latest research findings and to demonstrate tools and projects.
This year's theme is Integrating Digital Humanities. This implies that we encourage you to reflect in your submission, in a critical and self-reflexive way, on how the digital turn affects knowledge production and dissemination in the humanities and heritage sector.
The call is open to all colleagues working in the humanities or heritage sector with an interest and enthusiasm in the application and use of digital technologies. Submissions are welcome from researchers at all career stages. We particularly encourage early stage researchers (MA/PhD students and postdoctoral researchers) to submit abstracts. We welcome humanities scholars, developers, computer and information scientists as well as librarians, archivists and museum curators. The conference has a focus on recent advances concerning research activities in the Benelux as well as data or research projects related to Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg.
The preferred language of the conference is English. Proposals, presentations and posters in any language in the Benelux will be accepted; note, however, that this will likely limit the impact of your message.
Deadline for submitting abstracts: Thursday 1 February 2018 (23:59 CET)
Notification of acceptance: Monday 9 April 2018
We invite submissions of abstracts on any aspect of digital humanities: practical experimentation, theorising, cross- and multidisciplinary work, new and relevant developments. Given this year's theme we especially welcome submissions that focus, in a critical and self-reflexive way, on how the digital turn affects knowledge production and dissemination in the humanities and heritage sector. Relevant subjects can be any of—but are not limited to—the following:
Critical study and digital hermeneutical approaches in the humanities
Humanities research enabled by digital approaches: digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital games and cyberculture; Digital media, digitisation, curation of digital objects; Geo-humanities, spatial analysis and applications of GIS for Humanities research
Computational tools: text mining and data mining; design and application of algorithms for analysis and visualisation methods; Applications of Linked Open Data; stylometry, topic modeling, sentiment mining
Social and economic aspects of digitality and digital humanities
Pedagogy, teaching, and dissemination of digital humanities
Data: Big Data, data modeling, data criticism
Software studies, information design and tool criticism.

For the 2018 conference we welcome submissions in the following format:
For DH Benelux 2018 we welcome five types of proposals: (1) long papers; (2) short project introductions; (3) round tables; (4) posters and; (5) application / tool demonstrations. Abstracts should clearly state the title and name and affiliation of the authors and the presenters, if you have one please include your twitter username too. Also indicate for which category (or categories) of presentation you are submitting your proposal. The word length is dependent on the proposal you submit, see details below. References and/or bibliography are recommended but are not obligatory, and are excluded from the word count. Proposals may contain graphics and illustrations.
Long papers (abstracts of 1000 words, paper presentation 20 mins + 10 mins for discussion) are suitable for presenting empirical work, theorising, cross- and multidisciplinary work, research methods and concise theoretical arguments. The research presented in a long paper should be completed or in the final stages of development.
Short papers (abstracts of 500 words, paper presentation 10 mins + 5 mins for discussion) are well suited reporting on early stage and ongoing research, as well as new project presentations, technical details and the results of practical experimentation and proof of concepts.
Round tables (abstracts of 1000 words) which bring together a group of practitioners/ researchers (ideally both) to discuss particular methodological and/or epistemological challenges.
Posters (abstracts of 500 words) are particularly suited for detailed technical explanations and clarifications, and for the show and tell of projects and research alike.
Demonstrations (abstracts of 500 words) of prototypes, finished software, hardware technology, tools, datasets, digital publications and so forth.
The abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the DH Benelux 2018 Programme Committee and published on the DH Benelux 2018 website.
We intend to publish conference proceedings following DH Benelux 2018, a call will be made after the conference. If you are interested in getting your paper published please indicate so; a paper version should then be submitted by 1 August.
Please submit your abstract by Thursday 1 February 2018 via http://2018.dhbenelux.org/submissions/
