[crm-sig] [Fwd: ACH/ALLC 2005: CALL FOR PAPERS]

A general introduction, workshop or a paper on a specific application of
the CRM? CRM has, according to my knowlegde, never been discussed or
presented on a ALLC/ACH conference. There are usually not so many people
with museum background on those conferences. But a session on CRM is,
perhaps, a good idea.

> IV. Types of Proposals
>Proposals to the Programme Committee may be of three types: (1) papers
><#papers>, (2) poster presentations and/or software demonstrations
><#poster-demo>, and (3) sessions <#sessions> (either three-paper or
>panel sessions). The type of submission must be specified in the proposal.
>Papers and posters may be given in English, French, German, Italian,
>Spanish or Swedish.
>Proposals for papers (750-1500 words) should describe original work:
>either completed research which has given rise to substantial results,
>or the development of significant new methodologies, or rigorous
>theoretical, speculative or critical discussions. Individual papers will
>be allocated 30 minutes for presentation, including questions.
>Proposals that concentrate on the development of new computing
>methodologies should make clear how the methodologies are applied to
>research and/or teaching in the humanities, and should include some
>critical assessment of the application of those methodologies in the
>humanities. Those that concentrate on a particular application in the
>humanities should cite traditional as well as computer-based approaches
>to the problem and should include some critical assessment of the
>computing methodologies used. All proposals should include conclusions
>and references to important sources. Those describing the creation or
>use of digital resources should follow these guidelines as far as possible.
> Poster Presentations and/or Software Demonstrations
>Poster presentations may include computer technology and project
>demonstrations,which we encourage. Hence the term poster/demo to refer
>to the different possible combinations of printed and computer based
>presentations. There should be no difference in quality between
>poster/demo presentations and papers, and the format for proposals is
>the same for both. The same academic standards should apply in both
>cases, but posters/demos may be a more suitable way of presenting
>late-breaking results, or significant work in progress, including
>pedagogical applications. Both will be submitted to the same refereeing
>process. The choice between the two modes of presentation (poster/demo
>or paper) should depend on the most effective and informative way of
>communicating the scientific content of the proposal.
>By definition, poster presentations are less formal and more interactive
>than a standard talk. Poster presenters have the opportunity to exchange
>ideas one-on-one with attendees and to discuss their work in detail with
>those most deeply interested in the same topic. Presenters will be
>provided with about two square meters of board space to display their
>work. They may also provide handouts with examples or more detailed
>information. Posters will remain on display throughout the conference,
>but there will also be a separate conference session dedicated to them,
>when presenters should be prepared to explain their work and answer
>questions. Additional times may also be assigned for software or project
>The poster sessions will build on the recent trend of showcasing some of
>the most important and innovative work being done in humanities computing.
> Poster Prize
>As an acknowledgement of the special contribution of the posters to the
>conference, the Programme Committee will award a prize for the best poster.
>Sessions (90 minutes) take the form of either:
>Three papers. The session organizer should submit a 500-word statement
>describing the session topic, include abstracts of 750-1500 words for
>each paper, and indicate that each author is willing to participate in
>A panel of four to six speakers. The panel organizer should submit an
>abstract of 750-1500 words describing the panel topic, how it will be
>organized, the names of all the speakers, and an indication that each
>speaker is willing to participate in the session.
>The deadline <#deadline> for session proposals is the same as for
>proposals for papers.
> V. Format of the Proposals
>All proposals must be submitted electronically using the on-line
>submission form found at the conference website.
>Please pay particular attention to the information that is required
>regarding each proposal. Submissions that do not contain the required
>information will be returned to the authors, and may not be considered
