The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites submissions of proposals for pre-conference workshops for its annual conference, on any aspect of the digital humanities. This includes but is not limited to:

	• computer applications in literary, linguistic, cultural, and historical studies, including electronic literature, public humanities, and interdisciplinary aspects of modern scholarship;
	• the digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital games, and related areas;
	• the creation and curation of humanities digital resources;
	• social, institutional, global, multilingual, and multicultural aspects of digital humanities
	• and the role of digital humanities in pedagogy and academic curricula.
We particularly welcome submissions on interdisciplinary work and new developments in the field, and encourage proposals relating to the theme of the conference.The paper, poster, and panel deadlines have passed, and we are now looking for proposals for pre-conference workshops and tutorials (proposal max of 1500 words). Workshop and pre-conference tutorial proposals are due at midnight GMT on 21st February 2014, with notice of acceptance by 17th March 2014.

An electronic submission form will be available soon on the conference website http://dh2014.org/.  Previous DH conference participants and reviewers should use their existing accounts rather than setting up new ones. If you have forgotten your user name or password, please contact Program Committee Chair, Melissa Terras m.terras at ucl.ac.uk.

Pre-Conference Workshops and Tutorials

Participants in pre-conference workshops or tutorials will be expected to register for the full conference as well as pay a small additional fee.

Proposals should provide the following information:
	• a title and brief description of the content or topic and its relevance to the DH community (not more than 1500 words);
	• full contact information for all tutorial instructors or workshop leaders, including a one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas of expertise;
	• a description of target audience and expected number of participants (based, if possible, on past experience);
	• and any special requirements for technical support.
Additionally, tutorial proposals should include:
	• a brief outline showing that the core content can be covered in a half day (approximately 3 hours, plus breaks). In exceptional cases, full-day tutorials may be supported as well.
And workshop proposals must include:
	• the intended length and format of the workshop (minimum half-day; maximum one and a half days);
	• a proposed budget (as DH workshops are expected to be self-financing)
	• and, if the workshop is to have its own CFP, a deadline and date for notification of acceptances, and a list of individuals who have agreed to be part of the workshop’s program committee.
