Dear list members,

dealing with documents in a computerized age opens the interpretation of 
what "diplomatics" could be. The third edition of the "Digital

new building of the Archives Nationales de France asks therefore

What is Diplomatics in a digital environment?

It has put up a three days program with internaional speakers in nine 
fields:

- Global Diplomatics

- Diplomatics of Digitally Born Archives
- Digital Corpora: from Charters to Web archives
- The Use of Complex Technology in Diplomatic Analysis
- Diplomatic Visualization
- Teaching Diplomatics
- Methods of critical analysis of digital documents

which you can find the detailed program at

        Subject: Information Design Summer School -Syros, The Cyclades Islands, Greece - Sept 30th-Oct 4th 2013


We have still a 3 places  available for our summer school on Information Design https://infodesign2013.pns.aegean.gr/

"Come to Syros, Greece for a week of expert tuition and deep discussions on Information Design -how to make complex information easier to understand, all while savouring late summer warmth.

The summer school is being organised by the University of the Aegean, with the participation of the Simplification Centre, London, UK, and the International Institute of Information Design (IIID)

Modern life is saturated with complex information and data. For information to have the most impact, it must be easy to find, simple to use and instant to understand. In short, information needs to be designed.

Information design has developed as a specialist field, with a growing research literature and critical tradition. However, specialist education and training in information design is hard to find and many people come to it from another aspect of design or some other profession entirely. As a result, people who want to develop their expertise can find themselves isolated, without access to expert help, and often without like-minded colleagues.

Enticed? Intrigued?

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 8th Annual Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science will take place December 5-7, 2013, on the Lincoln Park Campus of DePaul University. The conference will consist of panels, roundtables, or other kinds of sessions proposed by scholars relating to recent issues and advances in the digital humanities. We are excited as well to welcome as our keynote speaker Prof. Michael Chwe from the Department of Political Science at University of California Los Angeles. Prof. Chwe is the author, most recently, of Jane Austen, Game Theorist (Princeton University Press, 2013).

Interested scholars are invited to present proposals for individual papers, entire panels or roundtable sessions by September 27, 2013 (extended deadline). Panels will consist of three papers and a commentator/moderator, although other formats are possible. Panel proposals should include a title and brief description of the session as a whole (300 words or less), along with paper titles and abstracts (300 words or less) of all panelists. Short-form CVs (1-2 pages, including  institutional affiliation and contact information) should also be attached. Proposals for individual papers will also be considered and are encouraged.

All proposals should be sent by email to BOTH of the Program Co-Chairs for the conference: Professor Robin Burke (rburke at cs.depaul.edu), and Professor Paul B. Jaskot (pjaskot at depaul.edu). Applicants will be informed regarding inclusion on the conference program by October 11, 2013.

Registration will be free. Participants and other interested scholars may register beginning in Fall 2013. At that point, information on the venue, detailed program, local arrangements for hotels and other pertinent information will also be available at the DHCS website (http://chicagocolloquium.org/ ).

We are very excited about coming together again for an outstanding program. We hope to have as many fields and subject areas represented as possible, and encourage you to start thinking now of putting together sessions, submitting individual papers, or possible workshops for consideration.

(Please note that on the original call for papers that the conference dates were off by one day. The correct dates of the conference are December 5-7, 2013.)
