Excerpt from the DH2017 CFP

Pre-Conference Workshops and Tutorials

Participants in pre-conference workshops and tutorials will be expected to register for the full conference as well as pay a small additional fee. Tutorials are normally intensive introductions to specific techniques, software packages or theoretical approaches with a small number of participants. Workshop proposals may take many forms, including proposals with a full slate of speakers and presentations, as well as proposals to issue an independent call for papers from which submissions will be chosen.

Proposals should provide the following information:

  • Title and brief description of the content or topic and its relevance to the digital humanities community (not more than 1500 words);

  • Full contact information for all tutorial instructors or workshop leaders, including a one-paragraph statement summarizing their research interests and areas of expertise;

  • Description of target audience and expected number of participants (based, if possible, on past experience); and

  • Special requirements for technical support.

Additionally, tutorial proposals should include:

  • A brief outline showing that the core content can be covered in a half-day (approximately 3 hours, plus breaks). In exceptional cases, full-day tutorials may be supported.

And workshop proposals must include:

  • Intended length and format of the workshop (minimum half-day; maximum one-and-a-half days);

  • Proposed budget (as workshops are expected to be self-financing); and

  • If the workshop is to have its own call for participation, a deadline and date for notification of acceptances, and a list of individuals who have agreed to be part of the workshop’s Program Committee.
