# Call for Papers

The main topic of the AIUCD 2019 Conference is ‘Pedagogy, teaching, and 
research in the age of Digital Humanities’. The conference aims at 
reflecting on the new possibilities that the digital yields for 
pedagogy, teaching, and scholarly research: how will these transform 
teaching in the humanities? What contributions can humanistic cultural 
critique offer to the digital revolution? What is the connection with 
the digitization plan for Universities outlined by the Ministry? It also 
concerns the Digital Humanities as a new discipline, and this brings 
forward further considerations: how can the new professional figure of 
the digital humanist be developed? Which areas of knowledge define the 
Digital Humanities as a subject of study, research, and teaching? How 
can we recognise, classify, describe, and evaluate research efforts in 
the Digital Humanities?

While open to other topics related to Digital Humanities, proposals for 
contributions are particularly encouraged on the following:

General questions:
* the epistemological positioning and area of knowledge of DH in 
relation to the systems of Academic Research Areas (Settori 
Scientifico-Disciplinari) and  Recruiting in Italy;
* the positioning of DH in the European and International academic systems;
* the evaluation of research in DH beyond traditional publications;
* dissemination, public history, and crowdsourcing within research projects;
* the role of inter(multi-trans-cross)-disciplinary DH research in 
European projects, enquiry, and teaching.

Pedagogy and teaching questions:
* teaching DH: which models, technologies, and methods?
* teaching the humanities in secondary schools and universities with DH 
tools;
* teaching DH at the University: how is it taught today?
* DH and media: production, dissemination, and analytical prospects
* teaching history and DH;
* DH and didactic strategies;
* DH and hands-on teaching practices;
* DH and primary source teaching;
* Big Data methodologies and technologies in DH research and teaching.
* Questions concerning research efforts:
* statistical and quantitative research methods and their teaching 
applications;
* Data Science and the role of DH in the definition of new knowledge;
* Information science and DH:  meeting points and methodological 
integration;
* cultural and social impact of humanities research with computational 
methodologies;
* Semantic web technologies and linked open data in the humanities;
* models and tools for knowledge representation in the humanities and 
the cultural heritage sector;
* visualization methodologies and technologies and their significance 
for humanities and cultural heritage knowledge and information;
* Natural Language Processing methodologies and applications for the 
humanities;
* digitization methodologies and technologies for the production, 
preservation, and promotion of digital cultural heritage.

# Deadlines

The deadline for submitting proposals is the 25th October 2018 (h. 23.59 
CET).

Notifications of acceptance will be sent to the authors by 15th December

However, it is possible to present in other languages if English slides 
are provided.

# Proposal categories and submission

Proposals must be sent in the form of an extended abstract (see below 
for details), using the ConfTool conference management system, 
accessible at: http://www.conftool.net/aiucd2019

The Conference provides the following proposal categories:

1. long proposal (30 mins: 20 mins + 10 mins for for questions and 
answers): it should discuss innovative methodologies and their 
theoretical foundations, experiences of analysis and applications that 
are methodologically significant within a discipline; presentations 
devoted to presenting a specific tool or resource are acceptable only if 
they include a thorough critical discussion of the methods used and/or a 
theoretical evaluation of the results obtained;
2. short proposal (20 mins: 15 mins + 5 mins for questions and answers): 
it must present a mature research product or a research project;
3. panel (90 or 45 mins, including questions and answers): a series of 
presentations (maximum 6) should describe, from a theoretical and 
methodological point of view, a specific topic or a critical 
presentation of the grounding, methods and results of a big project;
4. poster: must primarily address the progress of an ongoing project or 
the technical details of a tool or of a digital resource;
5. workshop and tutorial: in the two days prior to the Conference, one 
or two workshops or tutorials on topics or tools of interest to the DH 
community will be accepted.

Proposals will be evaluated through double-blind peer review by scholars 
in the Humanities, Computer Science and/or Digital Humanities. The 
proposal evaluation will be carried out based on the following criteria:

* Relevance to the topic of the conference; consistency with the Digital 
Humanities and Digital Culture domains.
* Originality, relevance, or innovative approach.
* Methodological rigour, accurate description of the methodology; the 
research presented should be reproducible
* Adequacy of the theoretical and conceptual approach to the reference 
domain.
* Consistency of arguments; clear definition of the objectives; 
coherence between objectives and results.
* Critical analysis of the literature; a bibliography
* Quality of any technical solutions proposed within the reference domain.
* Good balance between the Humanities and Computer Science components of 
the research.
* Structure of the text; quality of writing; ease of understanding; 
explanations of scientific language.

At the end of the evaluation process, the Program Committee may decide 
to move an accepted proposal to a different category of presentation.

To submit a proposal, please sign into ConfTool 
(http://www.conftool.net/aiucd2019). When submitting a proposal, authors 
must specify keywords from those suggested by the platform in order to 
facilitate the review process.

# Proposal structure and formats

Proposals must clearly present the goals of the contribution, provide a 
brief overview of current research in the field, specify and discuss the 
methodology adopted and, where appropriate, the results obtained or 
expected. The abstracts will be published in a book with an ISBN 
identifier. The most promising contributions will be selected for 
publication as full articles in the AIUCD Umanistica Digitale journal 
(https://umanisticadigitale.unibo.it). Proposals must also include a 
short bibliography. Figures or tables may be included. The length of the 
proposal varies depending on the type of proposal:

* Long paper proposal should be 1500-1800 words in length (including 
footnotes but excluding the bibliography);
* Short paper and poster proposals should be 800-1000 words in length 
(including footnotes but excluding the bibliography);
* Panel proposals should be 800-1000 words in length plus 200-250 words 
for each single presentation, (including footnotes but excluding the 
bibliography);
* Workshop or tutorial proposals should be at least 1000 words and

relevance to the conference and the DH community in general, complete 
information of all tutors with a brief description of their research 
interests and previous experience, requests for technical support at the 
conference, and whether the workshop will have its own Call for 
Participation.

When submitting the proposal, ConfTool also requires the provision of a 
short abstract (300 words). Proposals should be drafted according to the 
templates available at:

* Word:

which also includes editorial specifications. Valid formats are DOCX, 
DOC, and ODT.

The official languages of the AIUCD 2019 Conference are Italian and 
English, but it is possible to submit a proposal also in the following 
languages: French, German and Spanish. In these cases, it is mandatory 
to provide a short abstract in English in ConfTool.

Posters should be written in Italian or English. Posters will also need 
to clearly present the objectives of the project, provide a brief 
overview of the state of the art and the methodologies adopted and, 
where appropriate, the results obtained or expected. They must also 
contain a short bibliography. The format is portrait A1 (841x594 mm). 
Posters will be displayed in a dedicated space at the Conference venue. 
Display panels will be provided. Please bring your poster already 
printed, as we are unable to provide a printing service. Personal laptop 
computers may be used in the poster exhibition area. If your 
presentation includes a laptop, please inform the organising committee 
on acceptance of your proposal. Specific poster slam sessions will be 
scheduled in the Conference programme to give authors the opportunity to 
briefly introduce (max 2 minutes) their poster.
