DHCS 2019

Call for Proposals

The Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS) brings together researchers, scholars, librarians, and technologists in the humanities and computer science from across the country and around the world to examine the current state of digital humanities as a field of intellectual inquiry and to identify and explore new directions and perspectives for future research.

The conference is interested in proposals for papers, panels, workshops, and posters from people at all ranks whose work contributes to the themes of the conference. Potential topics include (but are not limited to):
• visualization tools, theories, methodologies, and workflows to make sense of Big Data;
• digital approaches to textual studies;
• public digital humanities;
• digital accessibility;
• digital humanities pedagogy;
• preserving the digital humanities;
• digital gaming, critical play, game design, and gaming culture;
• creative coding and electronic literature;
• studies on uses and behaviors of Social media sites users;
• digital humanities technologies (e.g., mapping, text-mining);
• digital humanities project design/management;
• institutional DH partnerships and project-based collaborations;
• community-based online media practices;
• digital representation.
We hope the scope and topical breadth of the conference will stimulate an interdisciplinary dialogue that crosses traditional professional barriers. We are particularly interested in international and underserved populations’ perspectives on digital humanities and computer science.

Applicants should submit a title and 200-300 word abstract along with a brief biography or C.V. by September 9 using the Submission Form. All presenters will have their registration fee for the conference waived. Presenters may have the opportunity to publish their papers in an online proceedings edition from the conference.

DHCS 2019 welcomes submissions in the following formats:
• Papers/Presentations (15 minutes)
• Panels (60-90 minutes)
• Posters
• Workshops (60-90 minutes)
