 Call for Papers:

The Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands is organizing the first of DiXiT’s three conventions, September 16-18 2015 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The convention will be an informal meeting where the DiXiT research fellows will present their first results in interactive sessions. We anticipate a lively get-together bristling with new ideas, and we hope that many of those working in the field of scholarly editing and digital humanities will gather here. In order to broaden the scope and diversity of the meeting, the convention organisers are issuing this call.

While the focus of the convention is on technology, software and standards, topics for the sessions may include anything related to scholarly digital editing, such as:

tools for editing, collation, publicationtext markup: application, development, advantages, disadvantagessustainability and preservation of editions: economic and technicalediting as a social endeavour: crowd-sourcing, social editions and other forms of collaborationthe role of the editor in digital editingand others

We encourage exploratory papers. Early-career scholars are welcome.

We ask those interested in presenting a twenty-minute paper to mail their proposal to congres@huygens.knaw.nl. The proposal should include:
