20th International Conference on Electronic Publishing
Positioning and Power in Academic Publishing: Players, Agents and Agendas
We would like to invite you to join us for the 20th anniversary of the conference that will take place on 7-9 June 2016 at the University of Göttingen, Germany! Since the beginnings twenty years ago, the Elpub conference has been a leading forum on electronic publishing attracting people from around the world facilitating active collaboration and knowledge exchange. ELPUB 2016 continues the tradition, and brings together scholars, publishers, lecturers, librarians, developers, entrepreneurs, users and all other stakeholders interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts.
A GLANCE AT SOME HIGHLIGHTS
This year’s keynote speakers:
Jean-Claude Guédon from the University of Montréal, Canada, will speak on the topic of “Whither Open Access? Four scenarios and four choices”, and our second keynote speaker, Tara Andrews from the University of Bern in Switzerland talks on the topic of “After the Spring: digital forms of scholarship and the publication ecosystem”. The third and national speaker Prateek Mahalwar, Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, shares with us his views on opportunities and challenges for early career researchers in the context of Open Science.
A rich program with many presentations and demos can be found here: http://meetings.copernicus.org/elpub2016/Elpub2016_preliminary_programme.pdf
Four workshops will offer delegates the opportunity to explore:
– Open Peer Review: Models, Benefits and Limitations (co-organized by OpenAIRE),
– Opening up the collection – reuse and publishing (LIBER)
– Entering the publishing system – Junior Scientist Day (FOSTER)
– OJS 3.0 and OMP 1.2: The latest in open source software for academia-controlled publishing (PKP).
A panel of experts investigates the conference topics in an open forum with short rhetoric stakeholder perspectives and the opportunity to engage with the audience into the discussion.
We look forward to welcoming you in Göttingen in June!

NOTE: Early Bird Registration closes on 24 April 2016
The School aims at giving the opportunity to scholars, PhD students, researchers and specialists in Geophysics, Remote Sensing and Archaeology to deepen their knowledge and expertise with geophysical and remote sensing techniques for archaeology and cultural heritage documentation and management.
The school consists of lectures and on-field practical work at the prestigious site of Pompei. The course will provide the basics about data collection, processing and interpretation for geophysical techniques (GPR, magnetic, ERT), passive and active remote sensing and low-cost approaches based on the use of UAV.
The course will be held from Monday May 9 to Friday May 13, 2016, and we will foresee lectures/practical work on morning and afternoon (8 hours) for the first four days and only the morning for the last day.
The school is organized by two Institutes of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, i.e., CNR-IBAM and CNR-IREA, and Soprintendenza Speciale Beni Archeologici Pompei, Ercolano e Stabia.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Oct. 31st – Nov. 5th, 2016; Cyprus
NEW Paper submission deadline: 13th of June, 2016 (24:00 London-UK time)
The 6th biannual European-Mediterranean (EUROMED) conference brings together researchers, policy makers, professionals, fellows and practitioners to explore some of the more pressing issues concerning Cultural Heritage today. In particular, the main goal of the conference is to focus on interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research on tangible and intangible Cultural Heritage, using cutting edge technologies for the protection, restoration, preservation, massive digitalization, documentation and presentation of the Cultural Heritage contents. At the same time, the event is intended to cover topics of research ready for exploitation, demonstrating the acceptability of new sustainable approaches and new technologies by the user community, owners, managers and conservators of our cultural patrimony.
Topics and themes:
Researchers and practitioners willing to participate to the EUROMED 2016 conference are invited to submit papers on original works addressing the following subjects and research themes:
More detail information regarding the themes can be found at: http://www.euromed2016.eu/index.php/call-participation
Submission of Papers:
Submissions for the event are completely electronic through the on-line submission website available at http://www.euromed2016.eu/index.php/paper-submission
The conference accepts only original, unpublished work written in English which will be blind-reviewed and published onSPRINGER-NATURE LNCS.
We are soliciting three types of contributions:
The 20 best submitted papers will be published on a special issue of the International Journal Heritage in the Digital Era published by the SAGE the 5th largest journal publisher in the world.

An Foras Feasa at Maynooth University, Ireland, is delighted to announce two Masters degree programmes in digital humanities for the 2016-17 academic year. More information is at https://www.
The MA in Digital Humanities is in its 7th year, making it the oldest Masters in Digital Humanities in Ireland and one of the oldest in the world. This one year practice-based MA is a transformative degree covering areas such as, digital scholarly editing, data modelling, designing and delivering photographic archives, computational imaging, 3D visualisation, computer graphic simulations, and digital heritage. Most classes have both practical and theoretical components and students learn a variety of technical skills including text encoding (XML/TEI/XSLT), linked data, Java, photogrammetry, reflectance transformation imaging, 3D scanning, hyperspectral imaging, virtual and augmented reality, and 3D modelling.
In 2016-17 AFF, in conjunction with The National Centre for Geocomputation we will offer an MSc in Spatial eHumanities. This programme takes an interdisciplinary approach to focus on spatio-temporal concepts, methods, and tools in the development of computational and visual frameworks from which to explore the past and better understand our present. It combines geocomputation, cultural heritage, archaeology, design, and humanities/arts research, providing both a historical background and theoretical grounding to the field, while enabling students to develop solid skills in contemporary digital methods and technologies, including Geographic Information Systems and 3D computer graphics modelling, simulation, and animation.
Both Masters offer a practicum in the spring semester with a cultural heritage institution, in the private sector, or with a digital humanities project in which students get project-based real-world experience and develop management skills. Both Masters are practice-based with a small number of students per course, thus allowing for 1:1 mentoring in practicums and thesis supervision.
These courses are ideal for students wishing to upskill in digital technologies bringing new methods, technologies, and theoretical approaches to humanities and cultural heritage. Past students are employed in a variety of sectors, including libraries, archives, digital humanities projects, cultural heritage institutions, and the private sector.
