DHOxSS Peer-Reviewed Poster Session: Call for Posters
Deadline: 1 May 2014

Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is one of the 
leading international training events in Digital Humanities. It 
is for researchers, project managers, librarians, research 
assistants, students, and anyone interested in Digital 
Humanities. DHOxSS delegates are introduced to a range of topics 
including the creation, management, analysis, modelling, 
visualization, or publication of digital data in the humanities. 
Each delegate follows one of our five-day workshops and 
supplements this with additional morning parallel lectures. There 
will also be a peer-reviewed poster session giving delegates a 
chance to present their Digital Humanities work to those at the 
DHOxSS. Presenting a poster often gives delegates a chance to 
receive funding to attend from their local institution.

This year's DHOxSS will be held on 14-18 July 2014 and the 
five-day workshops offered are:

1. Introduction to Digital Humanities
2. Taking Control: Practical Scripting for Digital Humanities 
3. Data Curation and Access for the Digital Humanities
4. A Humanities Web of Data: Publishing, Linking and Querying on 
the Semantic Web
5. Using the Text Encoding Initiative for Digital Scholarly Editions

The Monday evening reception at the Oxford University Museum of 
Natural History also will be our peer-reviewed poster session. 
The poster application form asks for an abstract (max 250 words) 
of what your poster is about and why it will be useful for 
delegates at DHOxSS 2014 to see it. Only registered delegates of 
DHOxSS, or members of the University of Oxford, may present a 
research poster at DHOxSS. However, you do not need to be 
registered at the time of submitting the poster application form.

The DHOxSS will offer an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge 
and participate in discussions about a wide range of digital 
techniques and research methods, as well as exploring key topics 
in depth with leading senior researchers and technologists.

Applications are due by 1 May 2014. For more information see: 
http://dhoxss.humanities.ox.ac.uk/2014/posters.html and for 
enquiries email researchsupport at it.ox.ac.uk.

DonÂ’t forget our NeDiMAH bursaries, deadline fast approaching: 22 
April 2014.

Crossover & Transformation

The 5th International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital
Humanities 2014


December 1-2, 2014

International Conference Hall, Humanities & Social Sciences Building
(HSSB), Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan


Digital Humanities refers to the practice of humanities research with
digital resources and information technology. The interdisciplinary nature
of digital humanities enables researchers examining new methodology,
defining new research issues, discovering new context between quantity
data, and exploring how the humanities may evolve. The emergence of Digital
Humanities has not only transformed the practice of academic research. With
equally importance, digital humanities also aims to endeavor a nuanced and
critical understanding of how digital technology shapes our society,
inspires innovation, and creates new life style in the digital era.

This conference is thus organized to engage more researchers to participate
in the ongoing dialogs that will eventually lead to encourage collective
projects, to stimulate more new research themes, and ultimately to
contribute to the growth and flourishing of the global research community
of Digital Humanities.

Topics of interest

We invite submissions of abstracts relating (but not limited) to the
following aspects of digital humanities:

1.      Development of digital technologies and their applications to help
advancing humanities studies (including digital media, data mining,
software design, and modeling, etc.).

2.      Interdisciplinary research and humanistic research in literature
studies, linguistics, culture, and history that are conducted with the use
of digital data or digital technology.

3.      Research related to the impact of digital technologies on social,
institutional, and linguistic aspects, as well as its impact on
globalization and multiculturalism.

and digital applications such as digital design and new media.

        Subject: Conference: Breaking Scientific Networks

All are invited to an upcoming conference – "Breaking Scientific 
Networks" – to be held next week at UC Davis.

What happens when scientific collaborations fall apart? What causes 
networks to falter? How resilient are they in the face of outside 
interference, internal strife, or major geopolitical disruption? In this 
one-day conference, we will look at the long history of networks, from 
the early modern period to the present day. Join us for the discussion – 
all are welcome!

When: April 25th, 2014. Breakfast at 9:30am; talks and discussion from 
10:00am to 6:45pm.

of California, Davis. All events will be in the Social Sciences & 
Humanities Building, room 1246.
