         Subject: Digital Humanities 2006: Call for Papers

The joint conference of the Association for Literary and Linguistic
Computing and the Association for Computers and the Humanities is the
oldest established meeting of scholars working at the intersection of
advanced information technologies and the humanities, annually
attracting a distinguished international community at the forefront
of their fields.

Submissions are invited on all topics concerning humanities computing:

      * text analysis, corpora, language processing
      * IT in librarianship and documentation
      * computer-based research in literary, cultural and historical
      * computing applications for the arts, architecture and music
      * research issues such as
            o information design and modelling
            o the cultural impact of the new media
      * the role of humanities computing in academic curricula

Submissions may be of three types:

     1. Papers. The submission should be of 1500 words maximum. The
duration of the paper is 20-25 minutes. Submissions are peer-reviewed.
     2. Poster presentations and software demonstrations. This is
especially suitable for work in progress to be discussed with
delegates. Poster presentations will be reviewed on the same criteria
as paper presentations.
     3. Sessions. These can be either 3-paper sessions or panel
discussions on a chosen topic. Sessions will be peer reviewed on the
same criteria as paper presentations.

Submissions may be in English, French, German, Spanish or Italian,
but submissions in languages other than English or French are
expected to provide an English summary. The firm deadline for
submissions is November 14, 2006. Presenters will be notified of
acceptance February 13, 2006. A limited number of bursaries will be
available for new scholars.
