The 3rd DH Benelux conference will take place on 9-10 June 2016, at the City-of-Science-Belval, Luxembourg organised by the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE) and the University of Luxembourg. DH Benelux is a young initiative that aims to further the dissemination of, and collaboration between Digital Humanities activities in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. The conference serves as a platform for the community of interdisciplinary DH researchers to meet, present and discuss their latest research findings and to demonstrate tools and projects. Previous conferences were held in The Hague, The Netherlands (2014) and Antwerp, Belgium (2015).

The call is open to all colleagues with an interest and enthusiasm for the humanities or digital technology (and ideally both). Submissions are welcome from researchers at all career stages. We particularly encourage PhD students and junior researchers to submit abstracts. We welcome humanities scholars, developers, computer and information scientists as well as librarians, archivists and museum curators. While the conference has a focus on recent advances in Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg, we warmly welcome contributions from outside the Benelux.

We invite submissions of abstracts on any aspect of digital humanities: practical experimentation, through theorising, cross- and multidisciplinary work, new and relevant developments. Relevant subjects can be any of—but are not limited to—the following:

  • Digital media, digitisation, curation of digital objects
  • Software studies, data modeling, information design and tool criticism.
  • Text mining and data mining
  • Applications of Linked Open Data
  • Design and application of algorithms for analysis and visualisation methods
  • Critical study and digital hermeneutics of digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital games and cyberculture
  • Social and economic aspects of digitality and digital humanities
  • Stylometry, topic modeling, sentiment mining and other digital technologies
  • Pedagogy, teaching, and dissemination of digital humanities
  • Human factors in DH technology: user research, crowd-sourcing, citizen science and public humanities
  • Geo-humanities, spatial analysis and applications of GIS for Humanities research
  • Digital scholarly editing and ePublications
  • Virtual Research Environments / Research Infrastructures
