CFP: Digital Frontiers 2013 at UNT

I received this call for proposals along with a message that they would really like to have a genealogy panel:
Call for Proposals: Digital Frontiers 2013

The University of North Texas Digital Scholarship Co-Operative and UNT Libraries invite proposals for Digital Frontiers 2013, a conference that brings together the users and builders of digital resources for research and education.

Digital libraries provide unprecedented access to materials, and this has dramatically expanded the possibilities of primary source research in the humanities and related fields.

We seek submissions of individual papers, fully-constituted panels, birds-of-a-feather discussions, hands-on tutorials, or posters--all based on the use of digital archives, social media, and digital tools for humanities research.

We encourage contributions from anyone who creates or uses digital collections, including scholars, educators, genealogists, archivists, technologists, librarians, and students. The goals of this conference are to bring a broad community of users together to share their work across disciplinary and administrative boundaries, and to explore the value and impact that digital resources have on education and research.

Possible Topics
  • Specific ways digital libraries have changed the state of research
  • Digital tools and methods for conducting research
  • Using digital collections in the classroom
  • Using digital libraries for research on any humanities topic
Proposal Types
Digital Frontiers is accepting proposals for:
  • Individual papers
  • Panels or Roundtables
  • Birds-of-a-Feather Discussions
  • Hands-on Tutorials & Workshops
  • Academic Posters
For specific guidelines and further details, please visit http://digitalfrontiers.unt.edu/
Deadline: April 30, 2013
This is a great way for genealogists to let the record keepers know our wants and needs. What are your ideas for topics to be suggested?
