**Digital Resources for the Humanities** conference (DRH 2005)
4th-7th September 2005
Lancaster University, UK ( http://www.ahds.ac.uk/drh2005/ )

REGISTRATION for DRH 2005 is now open: see

Registration will remain open until FRIDAY 12th AUGUST.
(While we will accept late registrations, we cannot guarantee
accommodation at the University for any registrations received after
12th August.)


The keynote speakers are:
-- Lou Burnard (Oxford University Computing Services, UK)
-- Neil Silberman (Ename Center for Public Archaeology and Heritage
Presentation, Belgium)

***A full list of papers accepted for the conference is available***
http://www.ahds.ac.uk/drh2005/papers.php?first_letter=all .

At this, the tenth DRH conference, we will focus on critical evaluation
of the use of digital resources in the arts and humanities. What has the
impact really been? What kinds of methodologies are being used? What are
the assumptions that underlie our work? How do we know that the work
that we accomplish is truly new and innovative? How does technology
change the way that we work?

The Conference will also address some of the key emerging themes and
strategic issues that engagement with ICT is bringing to scholarly
research in the arts and humanities, with a particular focus on advanced
research methods. What sort of research does ICT in the arts and
humanities enable researchers to do that could not be done before at
all? Does this enable 'old' research to be done in a significantly new
way? In what ways does the technology serve the scholarship? Similarly,
what are the key aspects of virtual research environments
("cyberinfrastructure") which can facilitate collaborative research?

Please address any queries about the conference to drhconf_at_lancaster.ac.uk

         Subject: WWW2006 Call for Papers


The International World Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2) invite
you to participate in the Fifteenth International World Wide Web
Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland on May 22nd-26th 2006.

The first international WWW conference was held in 1994 at CERN where
the Web was born. Since then, the conference series has been the
prime venue for both academics and industries to present, demonstrate,
and discuss the latest ideas and developments about the Web.

WWW2006 will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Edinburgh
International Conference Centre. The technical program will include
refereed paper presentations, special interest tracks, plenary
sessions, panels, and poster sessions. Tutorials and workshops will
run before and throughout the conference. A Developers track, devoted
to in-depth technical sessions designed specifically for web
developers, will run in parallel throughout the conference.

The conference will also be running a programme of high-level,
non-technical presentations for professionals in media, government,
education and commerce to inform and debate the issues relating to the
latest Web technology developments.

See http://www2006.org/ for regular updates on conference information.
WWW2006 is held in association with ACM, BCS, ECS and W3C.


WWW2006 seeks original papers describing research in all areas of the
web. Topics include but are not limited to:

# E* Applications: E-Communities, E-Learning, E-Commerce, E-Science,
                     E-Government and E-Humanities
# Browsers and User Interfaces
# Data Mining
# Hypermedia and Multimedia
# Performance, Reliability and Scalability
# Pervasive Web and Mobility
# Search
# Security, Privacy, and Ethics
# Semantic Web
# Web Engineering
# XML and Web Services
# Industrial Practice and Experience (Alternate track)
# Developing Regions (Alternate track)

Detailed descriptions of each of these tracks appear at

Submissions should present original reports of substantive new
work. Papers should properly place the work within the field, cite
related work, and clearly indicate the innovative aspects of the work
and its contribution to the field. We will not accept any paper which,
at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been
published or accepted for publication in a journal or another

New for WWW2006: We solicit submissions of "position papers"
articulating high-level architectural visions, describing challenging
future directions, or critiquing current design wisdom. Accepted
position papers will be presented at the conference and appear in the
proceedings. Both "regular papers" and "position papers" are subject
to the same rigorous reviewing process, but the emphasis may differ
--- regular papers should present significant reproducible results
while position papers may present preliminary work rich in
implications for future research.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by reviewers from an International
Program Committee. Accepted papers will appear in the conference
proceedings published by the Association for Computing Machinery
(ACM), and will also be accessible to the general public via
http://www2006.org/. Authors of all accepted papers will be required
to transfer copyright to the IW3C2.


Posters provide a forum for late-breaking research, and facilitate
feedback in an informal setting. Posters are peer-reviewed. The poster
area provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to
present and demonstrate their recent web-related research, and to
obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. It gives
conference attendees a way to learn about innovative works in progress
in a timely and informal manner. Formatting and submission
requirements are available at http://www2006.org/posters/.


A program of tutorials will cover topics of current interest to web
design, development, services, operation, use, and evaluation. These
half and full-day sessions will be led by internationally recognized
experts and experienced instructors using prepared content.

Workshops provide an opportunity for researchers, designers, leaders,
and practitioners to explore current web R&D issues through a more
focused and in-depth manner than is possible in a traditional
conference session. Participants typically present position statements
and hold in-depth discussions with their peers within the workshop
setting. For more information and submission details see


Panels provide an interactive forum that will engage both panelists
and the audience in lively discussion of important and often
controversial issues. For more information and submission details see
