In 2018, the conference seeks to extend the scope of digital humanities
research covered, both into new areas, as well as beyond the Nordic and
Baltic countries. In pursuit of this, in addition to the abstracts
familiar from humanities traditions, we also adopt a call for
publication ready texts as is the tradition in computer science
conferences. Therefore, we accept the following types of submissions:
1. Publication ready textsof length appropriate to the topic. Accepted
papers will be submitted to the CEUR-WS proceedings series for
publication in a citable form.
1. Long paper: 8-12 pages, presented in 20 min plus 10 min for Q&A
2. Short paper: 4-8 pages, presented in 10 min plus 5 min for Q&A
3. Poster/demo: 2-4 pages, presented as an A1 academic poster in a
2. Abstractsof a maximum of 2000 words. Proposals are expected to
indicate a preference between a) long, b) short, or c) poster/demo
format for presentation. Approved abstracts will be published in a
book of abstracts on the conference website.
Submissions to the conference are now open at ConfTool:
The call for proposals opened on 28 August 2017, and the deadline for
submitting proposals is extended until *5 November 2017* (was 25 October
2017)! Presenters will be notified of acceptance by 8 January 2018. For
papers accepted into the citable proceedings, there is an additional
deadline of 5 February 2018for producing a final version of your paper
that takes into account the comments made by the reviewers.
This year, the conference welcomes in particular work related to the
While the number of researchers describing themselves as digital
historians is increasing, computational approaches to history have
rarely captured the attention of those without innate interest in
digital humanities. To address this, we particularly invite
presentations of historical research whose use of digital methods
advances the overall methodological basis of the field.
Libraries, galleries, archives and museums are making vast amounts of
cultural heritage openly digitally available. However, tapping into
these resources for research requires cultivating co-operation and trust
between scholars and heritage institutions, due to the cultural,
institutional, legal and technical boundaries crossed. We invite
proposals describing such co-operation â examples of great resources for
cultural heritage scholarship, of problems solved using such data, as
well as e.g. intellectual property rights issues.
Humanities perspectives on games are an established part of the game
studies community. Yet their relationship with digital humanities
remains undefined. Digitality and games, digital methods and games,
games as digital methods, and so on are all areas available for
research. We invite proposals that address high-level game concepts like
"fun", "immersion", "design", "interactivity", etc positioned as points
of contact with the digital.
We also invite proposals in the broad category of âFutureâ. Accepted
proposals will still fit in the overall context of the conference and
highlight new perspectives to the digital humanities. Submissions may
range from applications of data science to humanities research to work
on human-machine interaction and ecological digital humanities. We also
welcome reflections on the future of the digital humanities, as well as
the societal impact of the humanities.
Finally, the overarching theme this year is Open Science. This pragmatic
concept emphasises the role of transparent and reproducible research
practices, open dissemination of results, and new forms of
collaboration, all greatly facilitated by digitalisation. All proposals
are invited to reflect on the benefits, challenges, and prospects of
open science for their own research.
Call for workshops/panels and tutorials
In addition to individual papers, the conference calls for interested
parties to submit proposals for workshops/panels and tutorial sessions
to be held preceding the conference. Workshops/panelsgather together
participants around a particular subtopic, while tutorialspresent a
useful tool or method of interest to the digital humanities community.
Either can take the form of either a half or a full day session, and
they generally take place the day prior to the conference.
Proposals should include the session format, title, and a short
description of its topic (max 2000 words) as well as the contact
information of the person/s responsible. Proposals should also include
the following: intended audience, approximate number of participants,
and any special technical requirements.
