    Hi All —

    I am sure that this nearby conference will be of interest to many in our community; please propose a session if you can make it. Below, please see a call for proposals from the organizers.

    There is still one month to propose presentations for the Keystone Digital Humanities Conference! The deadline for proposals is January 12, 2015. Selection will be made by open, online peer review by the community. Although a regional conference (Pennsylvania being the “Keystone State”), we welcome proposals from across the USA and abroad, from all areas of the digital humanities.

    The Keystone Digital Humanities conference will be held in the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, July 22-24, 2015.

    Proposals are now invited for long presentations (20 minutes), short presentations (7 minutes), and project showcases (10 minutes) in all areas of digital humanities.

    Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, short papers, project demos, workshops, or panel discussions. We welcome proposals from emerging and veteran students, teachers, and scholars.

    The community will be invited to vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The 10 proposals with the highest scores are guaranteed a slot at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.
    Please send your name, email address, and a proposal of 200-300 words to The proposal deadline is *January 12, 2015*, and community peer review will run from January 20-February 15. Proposers will be notified by March 1.

    The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH; is generously providing funding for 10 graduate students to attend and present their work.
