The III International Conference of the Hispanic Digital Humanities Society is proud to announce a special CFP aimed to attract proposals of artistic creations from professionals and researchers developing artistic-technical-scientific approaches related to thematic areas of the Conference (please, click here). We are looking for works that explore expressive and communicative possibilities that the different approaches of digital technologies can offer to humanities. Alternatively, we are also looking for works which are related to current affairs topics or which have the aim to interactively encourage viewers to discover and foster their intellectual adventures.
Two kinds of categories have been established:
a) previously-developed projects;
b) original creations exploring new possibilities and ideas.
Artistic proposals may include the following: prototypes, models, audiovisual installations, augmented reality solutions, game-art, sound art, tangible interfaces and apps for cellphones or social networks.
Presentation of proposals is to be done by following this procedure, divided into three stages.
Interested authors must submit an abstract, which must include a description of the project or work and an explanation of the technical elements needed for the installation. Minimum and maximum length for the abstract is 300 and 500 words, respectively.
Following the abstract, images or graphic elements can be attached, in order to better render the content of the proposed work.
Works that have not been previously displayed must necessarily be at an advanced state of completion by the registration date.
The deadline to submit a proposal is May 31st, 2017.
All submissions will be subject to blind-peer review by members of the scientific committee.
Selection criteria include:
Qualitative assessment of the artistic, aesthetic and/or critical concept
Content interactivity, performativity and/or richness
On June 15th, 2017 authors will be notified of acceptance/rejection of their submissions. Accepted authors will be asked to submit their work or project following the guidelines for short papers (please, click here to see instructions for authors of short papers).
The file, in PDF format, must be submitted via the Conference website by July 15th, 2017. Authors must follow the guidelines that appear in the Guide for document submission and in the Guide for presentation of short papers.
Accepted proposals will undergo a more detailed review process in this second stage. A review will be performed by a commission appointed by the scientific committee to be assisted by local organizers of the Conference.
On September 1st, 2017 authors will be notified of assessment/review of proposals. After considering comments and feedback from reviewers, authors will be asked to submit their final document in PDF format, including name/s of the author/s, e-mail address and affiliation, no later than September 30th, 2017.
The Conference organizing committee will design the installation of the exhibition.
Members of the committee will assist in the process of installation of the works; however, authors must be present to install their own works.
Authors will bear expenses related to packaging and shipping of the works.
Thanks to collaborating entities of the Conference, video projectors and audio players will be available. The Conference organizing committee will contact authors to gather information on each proposal’ needs.
During the Conference dates, some media will offer special coverage of this section.
All accepted proposals will be published as a book of abstracts. After the Conference, authors will have the opportunity to participate in a special issue of a high-impact journal specialized in Digital Humanities and/or Digital Culture. Prior acceptance, papers will need to go through a new peer review process.
