Call for papers

Submissions of abstracts for papers related to all areas of the VCHIreland workshop are welcome. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words with a view to producing a paper approximately 2500 words in length. We also welcome proposals for practical workshop demonstrations which may or may not be supplemented by papers. Participants may submit more than one abstract/proposal, but only one paper/demonstration by the same first participant will be accepted. Panel and paper proposals from PhD students and early career scholars are particularly welcome, and we would also encourage the inclusion of a short Bio/Profile. Accepted papers will be published in a new web-portal for Virtual Cultural Heritage in Ireland. All abstracts/proposals should be submitted in PDF format and include the Title, Author(s) and Affiliation(s).

Abstracts should be submitted to no later than 30 January 2014 and notifications of acceptance will be sent out by 7 February 2014. Completed papers will be expected by 14 March 2014.
