Call for Submissions

From August 6-9, 2024, DH2024 will be held at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, USA. DHTech will hold a mini-conference at DH2024 themed “DH Inside Out”. Typical DH conference presentations are focussed on the research with a slight nod to the technical details; we want to flip that format and dive more deeply into the technical aspects of the work, while still keeping it in context of the research and domain specifics. To that end, we invite submissions of interest to the people who work on the technical aspects of DH projects, such as:

  • implementation and design specifics of packages and applications
  • lessons learnt regarding the design and implementation of research software
  • tool demonstrations from a technical perspective
  • community and diversity topics specific to the technical DH community.

Submissions should specify the desired format:

  • Presentations: 20 minute talks including Q&A with the audience.
  • Tool presentations: 10 minutes demonstrations followed by 10 minutes discussion with the audience.
  • Other: do you have a format in mind you would like to try out? Please describe the format including length and audience engagement.

Submissions should be 500 to 750 words in length. Links to relevant code and packages should be provided in the submission.

Submission deadline is March 15, 2024 March 31, 2024 April 26, 2024 (final deadline extension). Please submit using this form. Please be aware, we may ask you to resubmit to a different platform depending on the number of submissions we receive.

Please note that this mini-conference will be in-person only. If you can’t be present at the conference in person but would really like to present, please submit and add a note that you won’t be able to attend in-person. Depending on the number of submissions, we might be able to accept pre-recorded talks potentially followed by a Zoom discussion.
