The conference will feature posters, papers and panels. We invite

encourage papers treating topics that deal with practices that aim to 
cross borders, for example, between academic fields, media, languages, 
cultures, organizations, and so on, as related to the field of digital 

Theme: "Leveraging Open Data"
Open Data has recently been a driver in various fields. The notion, 
activities, and the data themselves have gradually been gaining 
attention in the humanities. Large scale reusable data and greater 
integration of open data provide new research opportunities with 
relatively few costs. Open data has been strongly assisted by recent 
developments in digital tools, guidelines and frameworks that leverage 
digital cultural resources. It has become more important to share data 
and tools and to discuss their use in the context of digital humanities. 
This year we strongly encourage the submission of proposals about 
methods, results, and problems of leveraging open data in the 
humanities. With this as our suggested central focus, we nonetheless 
welcome papers on a broad range of DH topics.

Abstract: 500-1000 words in length in English, including title. Please 
submit abstracts on the open conference system for conference below by 
May 8, 2018.
