Proposals for complete sessions and individual presentations are currently

SCHOLARLY FOCUS
During this two day conference, we will explore the use of digital
resources in teaching and research in the Middle Ages. We especially

developments in the field. Topics may include but are not limited
to:

- digital paleography
- translation and dictionary projects
- digital projects in the visual and performance arts (material culture,
image annotation
tools, paratextual information, etc.)
- text corpora (creation of a corpus, search systems, etc.)
- encoding of medieval manuscripts and printed texts (use of XML, TEI and
exten-
sions of these protocols)
- management and preservation of digital resources
- information design and modeling
- the cultural impact of the new media
- software studies
- the role of digital humanities in academic curricula
- funding and sustainability of long-term projects
