DHBenelux 2015: Programme, Registration, Announcements

16 Apr 2015 - 00:00

Please find enclosed a series of announcements concerning the upcoming DH Benelux conference (8-9 June 2015 in Antwerp, Belgium), including links to the conference’s preliminary program and registration form, more information on our bursaries for early career scholars, etc.

Preliminary Program

It is with great pleasure that we announce the preliminary program for DHBenelux 2015. You will find the program on the conference's website. Please note that this is the *preliminary* program, subject to changes.

We were very excited to welcome many great contributions of high quality. Unfortunately this also meant that competition is up and we had to reject a larger number of papers than the previous year. We shall however take it as a positive sign of a well developing DH Benelux community. Please check out this year's host of high quality papers, posters, and demos…

DHQ: Special DH Benelux Issue

It also gives us great pleasure to be able to announce that we have found the editorial board of Digital Humanities Quarterly willing to work together with us on a special issue of DHQ on the occasion of DHBenelux 2015. The special issue will show case the highlight contributions to the conference.

Bursaries for Early Career Scholars

We are also proud to announce that we can offer a limited number of bursaries to early career scholars who wish to attend the DH Benelux conference. In addition to a reimbursement fee to cover travel and accommodation expenses, the bursary will include an invitation to the conference dinner at the Antwerp Zoo, and a waiver of the recipient’s registration fee. For more information on these bursaries please refer to the dedicated section on our website.


It remains then for us to once again kindly invite you to join us for this exciting digital humanities event in the beautiful and bustling city of Antwerp. Registration is now open. We offer discount fees for early bird registration (until May 15). Please refer to the registration form for more information. Please also note that instead of an integrated fee payment system we rather make use of decentralized highly intelligent payment systems that are able to ensure timely payment of fees to the appropriate account (this means you).

Reminder: Workshop on Visualization in DH

Finally, we also wish to remind you that the University of Antwerp’s Platform Digital Humanities is organizing a three day workshop on 'Visualization in Digital Humanities' that will immediately follow the DH Benelux conference (10-12 June 2015). Registration for this workshop is open until 30 April 2015. For more information please visit the workshop’s official website.
