The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites submission of abstracts for its annual conference, on any aspect of digital humanities. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Humanities research enabled through digital media, artificial intelligence or machine learning, software studies, or information design and modeling;
  • Social, institutional, global, multilingual, and multicultural aspects of digital humanities;
  • Computer applications in literary, linguistic, cultural, and historical studies, including public humanities and interdisciplinary aspects of modern scholarship;
  • Quantitative stylistics and philology, including big data and text mining studies;
  • Digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital games, and electronic literature;
  • Emerging technologies such as physical computing, single-board computers, minimal computing, wearable devices, applied to humanities research;
  • Digital humanities in pedagogy and academic curricula.

The theme of the 2017 conference is Access/Accès: contributions that focus on knowledge mobilization, public-facing scholarship, collaboration among scholars and communities, open access to code, software, research and results, and aspects of digital humanities research and publication involving accessibility technologies are particularly welcome. The conference will be officially bilingual in French and English, since Canada is a bilingual country: so we invite proposals for presentations particularly in both languages, as well as in the other official ADHO languages (German, Italian, Spanish).

Presentations may include

  • Posters (abstract maximum 750 words)
  • Short papers (abstract maximum 1500 words)
  • Virtual short papers (abstract maximum 1500 words)
