"Users of Scholarly Editions: Editorial Anticipations of
Reading, Studying and Consulting"
The 12th Annual Conference of the European Society for
Textual Scholarship (ESTS) will be held at the Centre
for Textual Studies, De Montfort University, Leicester
England 19-21 November 2015

The ESTS returns to Leicester where it was founded in 2001
to stage a major collective investigation into the state
and future of scholarly editing. Our focus is the needs
of users of scholarly editions and proposals for 20 minute
papers are invited on topics such as:

* Are users' needs changing?
* How does edition design shape use?
* Stability in print and digital
* Where are we in the study of mise en page?
* Facsimiles and scholarly editions
* Collaborative and social editing
* Editorial specialization in the digital age
* APIs and mashups versus anticipation
* The logic of annotation
* Is zero the best price point for editions?
* Readers versus users
* Can we assume a general reader'?
* Indexing and annotation versus search
* Editors, publishers and Open Access
* Is technology changing editing?
* Digital editions or digital archives?
* Are editions ever obsolete?
* Scholarly editions versus popular editions
* Any other topic related to the use or users of scholarly editions

Plenary Speaker (subject to confirmation) include:

Hans Walter Gabler (Munich University)
David Greetham (City University of New York)
Tim William Machan (Notre Dame University)
Gary Taylor (Florida State University)
Elaine Treharne (Stanford University)

                          3rd Call for Papers
 2nd International Digital Libraries for Musicology workshop (DLfM 2015)
             25th June 2015 (full day), Knoxville, TN, USA
 co-hosted with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2015

  Workshop website http://www.transforming-musicology.org/dlfm2015/


Deadline for final papers extended to Sunday 26th April; however draft
papers (at least title, authors, and abstract) must be submitted to
EasyChair by Wednesday 22nd April.


Many Digital Libraries have long offered facilities to provide
multimedia content, including music. However there is now an ever more
urgent need to specifically support the distinct multiple forms of
music, the links between them, and the surrounding scholarly context,
as required by the transformed and extended methods being applied to
musicology and the wider Digital Humanities.

The Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) workshop presents a venue
specifically for those working on, and with, Digital Library systems
and content in the domain of music and musicology. This includes Music
Digital Library systems, their application and use in musicology,
technologies for enhanced access and organisation of musics in Digital
Libraries, bibliographic and metadata for music, intersections with
music Linked Data, and the challenges of working with the multiple
representations of music across large-scale digital collections such
as the Internet Archive and HathiTrust.


Final paper submission deadline: 26th April 2015 (23:59 UTC-11)
Draft paper submission deadline: 22nd April 2015 (23:59 UTC-11)
Notification of acceptance: 22nd May 2015
Registration deadline for one author per paper: To be confirmed
Camera ready submission deadline: 1st June 2015 (14:00 UTC)


DLfM will focus on the implications of music on Digital Libraries and
Digital Libraries research when pushing the boundaries of contemporary
musicology, including the application of techniques as reported in
more technologically oriented fora such as ISMIR and ICMC.

This will be the second edition of DLfM following a very successful
and well received workshop at Digital Libraries 2014, giving an
opportunity for the community to present and discuss developments in
the last year that tackle the agenda that emerged in London. In
particular we encourage participants to consider the theme of the main
conference - "Large, Dynamic and Ubiquitous" - and how this properties
are reflected in Music Digital Libraries and their application to

The workshop objectives are:

 - to act as a forum for reporting, presenting, and evaluating this
   work and disseminating new approaches to advance the discipline;

 - to create a venue for critically and constructively evaluating and
   verifying the operation of Music Digital Libraries and the
   applications and findings that flow from them;

 - to consider the suitability of existing Music Digital Libraries,
   particularly in light of the transformative methods and
   applications emerging from musicology and "Large, Dynamic, and
   Ubiquitous" collections of both audio and music related data;

 - to set the agenda for work in the field to address these new
   challenges and opportunities.


Topics of interest for the workshop include but are not limited to:

 - Music Digital Libraries.

 - Digital Libraries in consideration of "Large, Dynamic and
   Ubiquitous" collections of audio and music related data.

 - Techniques for locating and accessing music in Very Large Digital
   Libraries (e.g. HathiTrust, Internet Archive).

 - Music data representations, including manuscripts/scores and audio

 - Interfaces and access mechanisms for Music Digital Libraries.

 - Digital Libraries in support of musicology and other scholarly
   study; novel requirements and methodologies therein.

 - Digital Libraries for combination of resources in support of
   musicology (e.g. combining audio, scores, bibliographic,
   geographic, ethnomusicology, performance, etc.)

 - User information needs and behaviour for Music Digital Libraries.
   Identification/location of music (in all forms) in generic Digital

 - Mechanisms for combining multi-form music content within and
   between Digital Libraries and other digital resources.

 - Information literacies for Music Digital Libraries.

 - Metadata and metadata schemas for music.

 - Application of Linked Data and Semantic Web techniques to Music
   Digital Libraries, and for their access and organisation.

 - Optical Music Recognition.

 - Ontologies and categorisation of musics and music artefacts.

Digital Library Federation Forum

The DLF Forum is an annual meeting where the digital library community comes together to discover better methods of working through sharing and collaboration. It serves as a resource and catalyst among digital library developers, project managers, and all who are invested in digital library issues. The 2015 DLF Forum<http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/> will be held in Vancouver, BC, October 26-28.

We are currently seeking proposals for the 2015 DLF Forum program. The Program Planning Committee requests proposals within the broad framework of digital collections, infrastructure, resources, and organizational priorities. You do not need to be part of a member organization in order to submit a proposal.

The Forum traditionally has no overarching theme so that we can craft a program that speaks to current issues of interest to our community. We depend on contributors to focus proposals on action-oriented topics targeted towards a practitioner audience, considering the aspects of design, management, implementation, assessment, and collaboration.

Suggested topical areas for 2015 include:

  *   Linked data implementations

  *   Collaborative digital projects across GLAM institutions

  *   Innovative approaches to engaging users and reusing data and collections (e.g., data visualization, mapping, crowdsourcing, citizen science)

  *   Systems architecture, both hardware and code

  *   Open data, open access, or open educational resources

This is not a prescriptive list; we encourage you to be creative, collaborative, and collegial.

Proposals are due June 22. For more information and to submit your proposal, please visit http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/cfp/
