The DH 2020 Ottawa Program Committee Co-Chairs are Laura Estill and Jennifer Guiliano.
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. Paper, poster and panel submissions qualify for consideration, authored or co-authored by an applicant.
The ADHO Conference Coordinating Committee invites proposals to host the Digital Humanities conference in 2020. According to the three-year rotation adopted by the ADHO steering committee in 2014, DH2021 will be hosted outside of Europe, the United States, or Canada.
Digital Humanities has grown so much the last ten years that the organizational structure of ADHO is not efficient any longer. At its yearly meeting on July 10, 2016, the ADHO Steering Committee approved a new governance framework and a new financial model.
Every three years, the Digital Humanities conference is held in North America. At DH2017, ADHO’s Steering Committee voted to hold DH2020 in Ottawa from July 22nd to July 24th 2020. The conference will be co-hosted by Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. The two universities have a history of DH collaboration and are partners on the Digital Humanities Summer Institute: Technologies East, the only bilingual digital humanities summer training initiative in Canada.
ADHO is excited to announce that the annual DH conference submissions will be given double blind peer review for the first time this year. While in the past reviewers were kept private from those submitting their scholarly work for consideration, this change means that neither the reviewer nor the applicant will be aware of the other's identity. We believe this will improve the outcomes of the conference by minimizing unconscious biases that can emerge during the review process.
