Apologies for cross posting.
I have received several requests for a short period of grace for the
deadline for the call for papers for the DRH2000 conference. We have
therefore decided to offer a general extension to everyone until 20th March
2000. All papers should be submitted via the web site
http://www.shef.ac.uk/~drh2000 and if you have any queries about the
conference please contact me at email@example.com. The call for papers

CALL FOR PAPERS DRH2000
The academic programme of the conference will comprise academic papers,
panel discussions, and poster presentations. A number of associated
workshops are also planned together with an exhibition of products and
services. The conference is known for its friendly atmosphere and welcomes
developers and users of digital resources from, amongst others,
universities, libraries, museums, galleries, and publishers. The conference
social programme will, we hope, encourage informal discussion and the chance
to make lasting contacts between members of the different groups
The Conference Programme Committee seeks proposals for papers, panel
sessions, and posters relating to any of the following themes:
Creation: the process of creating digital resources whether textual, visual,
time-based or multimedia; encoding standards; digitization techniques and
problems; funding resource creation.
Delivery and Use: policies and strategies for electronic delivery: both
commercial and non-commercial; mining for resource discovery including
cataloguing, metadata and search techniques; intellectual property rights;
cost-recovery, and charging mechanisms.
Integration: the process and result of integrating digital resources into
humanities teaching or research; organisation and management issues in the
digital library; providing support for the use of digital resources and
determining user needs.
Impact: methods for evaluating digital technologies; tracking effective
change in scholarly research and student learning; the impact of digitized
heritage in the public arena.
We invite proposals for papers, panels, posters, and workshops. The deadline
for submitting proposals is 6 March 2000 and notifications of acceptance
will be sent out by 25 April 2000. Please note that all participants in the
conference, including speakers, are expected to pay their own conference and
accommodation costs. We hope, however, to offer a limited number of
bursaries covering the conference fee for certain categories of participant.
All proposals will be reviewed by at least two referees with relevant
expertise. The final decision on acceptance into the conference programme
rests with the Programme Committee. For all type of proposal, authors are
encouraged to provide a clear overview of the work to be presented; state
how the proposal relates to the themes of the conference; outline any
original or innovative methods, technical solutions or conclusions; outline
the demonstrable value of the work to the broad humanities community. All
proposals should be submitted in English.
We invite proposals for conference papers lasting no more than 20 minutes.
Proposals should be between 1,000-1,500 words. Papers will be grouped into
sessions of three papers. You are welcome to propose a session of three
papers relating to a specific theme. In this case, session organisers should
provide a clear description (c.250 words) of how the papers relate to each
other, in addition to the three abstracts. Please note that all proposals
for papers, whether individual submissions or part of a themed session, will
be independently reviewed.
Themed Panel Sessions
We invite proposals for themed panel sessions lasting no more than 90
minutes. Proposals should be between 1,000-1,500 words. The panel organiser
should include details of the individuals or organisations who have agreed
to form the panel. Panel sessions are intended to provide a forum for
discussion of a specific theme or issue, introduced by panel members.
We invite proposals for posters. Posters provide the opportunity for a
visual, rather than oral, presentation of work within an informal
atmosphere. The conference programme will include a plenary poster session
where presenters will be able to discuss their work with delegates. Posters
may also include software demonstrations. Proposals for posters should be
between 500-1000 words.
We are considering holding a limited number of post-conference workshops, to
take place on 13 September, depending on demand. Workshops are expected to
be training events, lasting at least two hours, and focusing on skills or
technology relevant to the conference themes. Proposals for workshops should
be between 500-1,000 words and should outline the workshop aims, the
proposed structure, and include a statement of any technical requirements.
A book of abstracts, containing the revised versions of all accepted papers,
panel sessions and posters, will be provided to all conference delegates.
These abstracts will also be published on the conference web site.
A volume of Selected Papers will be published following the conference.
Everyone who presents a paper at the conference will be invited to submit a
full version of their paper for consideration for the publication.
The Programme Committee, which has responsibility for the academic programme
of the conference, is chaired by Michael Fraser, Oxford University. The
chair of the local organising committee at Sheffield University is Nigel
