Call for Hosting Conferences: The LLOH Prize (2015)
Deadline: October 10
Email address for proposal: firstname.lastname@example.org
The late EADH chair (2010-2012), Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen, attended conferences not only in the digital humanities but also in other disciplines. She was invariably interested in and encouraging of young scholars in particular, and she also spent a great deal of time in informal conversation with a wide range of colleagues. The Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen Young Scholar Prize was established in 2013 to honour her memory. The LLOH Prize is awarded to early-career scholars, that is, students, graduate students, or postdoctoral researchers at different conferences each year.

A Balisage pre-conference symposium (Monday August 4, 2014)
HTML5 is taking over the Web. XML and XML-based toolsets are used to create, manage, interchange, and manipulate much of the content that is published as HTML5. XMLers and HTML5ers may each find the other more than a little peculiar; but it is time to get past our differences and discuss how our differing strengths can be combined to benefit each other, our users, and the information eco-system as a whole.
