The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO) makes bursary awards to 14 or more students and young scholars who have submissions accepted for presentation at the annual Digital Humanities international conference. These awards are to encourage new contributions to scholarship in the digital humanities from our diverse global constituency and to involve new participants in the application of information technology in humanities research.

Last November I asked the members of the ADHO Steering Committee (SC) and all others interested in ADHO and Digital Humanities to send me suggestions and ideas about possible guidelines for communication in such a culturally diverse global association as ADHO is becoming.

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations Standing Committee on Awards is seeking nominations for the 2017 Antonio Zampolli Prize. The Zampolli Prize recognizes a single output in the field of Digital Humanities by any scholar or scholars at any stage of their careers. As such, it offers a unique opportunity to reward individual projects that have been either formative or had a decisive impact upon the field as a whole. As the prize is awarded to the project as a whole, the recipients can be a single individual or a collaborative group of scholars, researchers and/or practitioners.

On November 11, John Nerbonne tendered his resignation as ADHO Steering Committee Chair in order to make way for new leadership.
John was unanimously elected Chair of the Steering Committee (SC) at our Lausanne meetings in the summer of 2014, while serving as Chair of the Conference Coordinating Committee. The minutes of that meeting note that John's brief words of acceptance focused primarily on his goal of bringing new and diverse communities into ADHO, a cause for which he has worked tirelessly and on many fronts.
