Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce the upcoming international workshop The spatial 
inscription of science: exhibitions, devices, architectures, to take 
place on 26-27th May 2014 at the Curie Museum, 1 rue Pierre et Marie 
Curie, Paris. This event is part of the project Matières à penser. Les 
mises en scènes des sciences et leurs enjeux (19.-21. siècles) 
and supported by CIERA.

The admission is free subject to availability.

The spatial inscription of science:
Exhibitions, Devices, Architectures

An International Workshop

Organised by Andrée Bergeron (Centre Alexandre Koyré, Paris), Charlotte 
Bigg (Centre Alexandre Koyré, Paris), Jochen Hennig (Humboldt 
Universität, Berlin), Renaud Huynh (Musée Curie, Paris)

Musée Curie, Paris, 26-27 May 2014

Scientific spaces such as universities, laboratories but also museums 
and temporary spaces for showing science have a lot to tell us. Whether 
through their architecture, their material and symbolic inscription in 
the urban fabric, and their evolution over time and across different 
geographical and cultural environments  they are revealing of the 
evolving relations between science, science policy and science 

Starting from this working hypothesis, this workshop brings together 
historians of science, of the museum, of art, urban historians as well 
as exhibition makers to discuss  concrete embodiements of three types of 
spaces, each considered within the scientific, social and political 
context of their making : the university, the scientific and technical 
exhibition, and the dome.

The workshop aims to contribute to recent historiographical developments 
in the history of science, the history of scientific museums and of 
science popularization that have emphasized spatial issues as well as 
the material and visual cultures involved in scientific work and 
communication. It also aims to foster a dialogue between historical 
investigations (19th and 20th centuries) and current reflections about 
the place of science in our societies today.

19th EURAS Annual Standardisation Conference

Cooperation among standardisation organisations and
the scientific and academic community

8 - 10 September 2014
Belgrade, Serbia


Organised by
The European Academy for Standardisation (EURAS)

The Faculty of Organizational Sciences, University of Belgrade

To accelerate and sustain economic growth, industry needs standards. They provide the basis upon which to invest, to innovate and to gain global market share in an increasingly competitive world. Thus, standardisation is crucial to boost private investment in innovative goods and services. How can cooperation among standardisation organisations and the scientific and academic community contribute here? How can we define and measure quality of standards in different areas? What methods can be used in predicting of success of a standard in the market?

While the developed countries have long been leaders in international standardisation, transitional and developing countries remain largely passive and reap far less benefits than they could. The role of standards in the development of the global knowledge economy is significant. For example, standards are a basis for the transfer of new technologies. This is of particular relevance for transitional countries. Unfortunately, the activities of the scientific and academic community in this area are still inadequate. How can cooperation among standardisation organisation, scientific and academic community contribute to achieving technology catch up in transitional countries?

Standardisation in relation to science, research, knowledge development and knowledge transfer demand academic reflection from different angles. The EURAS 2014 conference seeks to receive academic papers on the above theme. Sample paper topics include:

* Standardisation and Europe's research and innovation agenda
* Standards as a driver for innovation
* Standardisation and IPR
* The role of standardisation in removing barriers to trade
* Standards and knowledge transfer
* Impact of standards and standardisation
* Quality of standards
* National or international policy and standardisation
* Relationship between standardisation and legislation
* Role of industry and their associations in standardisation
* Standardisation via industry consortia
* History of standardisation
* Standardisation processes Standards and conformity assessment

EURAS conferences provide a platform for those interested in standardisation research. Therefore, other standardisation papers not specifically related to the conference theme are also welcome. Full papers (up to 30 double spaced pages; rtf. .doc or .docx format) should be submitted to Kai Jakobs at Kai.Jakobs at cs.rwth-aachen.de.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to serve as discussants upon request. All papers will be reviewed (double blind) by members of the Programme Committee. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, as part of the ?EURAS Contributions to Standardisation Research? book series. Particularly good and relevant papers will be fast-tracked to the International Journal of IT Standards and Standardization Research (JITSR). For more detailed information please consult the EURAS website (www.EURAS.org).

CfP: DH-CASE 2014 at DocEng
Deadline: June 1st (abstracts), June 8 (full papers)

We invite contributions related to the intersection of theory, design, and
implementation, emphasizing a "big-picture" view of architectural, modeling
and integration approaches in digital humanities. Submissions are
encouraged that discuss data and tool reuse, and that explore what the most
successful levels are for reusing the products of a digital humanities
project (complete systems? APIs? plugins/modules? data models?).
Submissions discussing an individual project should focus on these larger
questions, rather than primarily reporting on the project’s activities.
This workshop is a forum in which to consider the connections and
influences between DH annotation tools and environments, and the tools and
models used in other domains, that may provide new approaches to the
challenges we face. It is also a locus for the discussion of emerging
standards and practices such as OAC (Open Annotation Collaboration) and
Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums (LODLAM).

Submission specifications

Papers should be submitted at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dhcase2014. An abstract of up
to 400 words must be submitted by June 1st, and the deadline for full
papers (6 to 8 pages) is June 8, 2014. Submissions will be reviewed by the
program committee and selected external reviewers. Papers must follow the
ACM SIG Proceedings format (

Up to three papers of exceptional quality/impact will be invited to submit
an extended abstract (2-4 pages) for inclusion in the DocEng 2014
conference proceedings.

It is planned that proceedings will be published via the ACM International
Conference Proceedings Series. Workshop organizers will produce and submit
a paper to “Digital Humanities Quarterly” (www.digitalhumanities.org/dhq/)
summarizing topics that arise in the workshop. We may consider a special
issue on workshop topics or key findings to an appropriate journal.
