Proposals relating to the development of new computing methodologies or digital resources should indicate how the methods are applied to research and/or teaching in the humanities and what their impact has been in formulating and addressing research questions. They should also include critical assessments of their application in the humanities as well as of the computing methodologies used.



Panels should focus on a single theme and be conceived as a 90-minute session of four to six speakers. Besides the paper abstracts, a short (200-300 words) presentation of the panel should be submitted by the organizer(s).
