CfP: Archaeological Information in the Digital Society

Call for presentations: Archaeological Information in the Digital Society

Archaeological Information in the Digital Society is a part of the series of annual Digital Heritage conferences hosted by the Centre for Digital Heritage. The first conference was held in 2014 in York and the second in Århus in 2015. In 2016, the third conference is organised by the Archaeological Information in the Digital Society (ARKDIS) research project in collaboration with the Department of ALM (Archives, Library & information, Museum & Cultural heritage studies), Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden. We are inviting submissions from all fields and topics of digital heritage. This year, without restricting the scope and field of presentations, we are especially encouraging researchers and practitioners to propose presentations relating to the production, use and management of archaeological information and how digitisation influences these processes. We are also encouraging researchers to submit presentations relating to other heritage disciplines discussing how digitisation affects information in these contexts. Presentations can represent any field of study in sciences, technology, social sciences or humanities beyond conventional disciplines of cultural and digital heritage, or can be based on an inter- or transdisciplinary approach.

Presentations can be traditional talks (oral paper presentations) but it is also possible to present posters or technical demonstrations as a part of a special session organised in exhibition format. Also other forms of presentations including but not restricted to panel discussions and tutorials can be proposed. Mark clearly in your submission the preferred format of your presentation, oral presentation or other, and in case for other, specify the type e.g. poster, technical demonstration in the abstract.

Abstracts describing the presentations should be no longer than 200 words including a title. Please submit your abstract no later than February 28, 2016 using Easychair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=arkdis2016 Questions regarding the submissions can be sent to Isto Huvila (firstname.lastname@abm.uu.se).
