Virtual Conference

There will be many opportunities for virtual participation in the conference. A focal point for access and dissemination will be, the knowledge base and community forum for the digital arts and humanities, with links from the conference website. is based at the Centre for e-Research, one of the hosts of DH2010.

 These include:

Twitter: the hash-tag #dh2010 has been in use for many months, and it is expected that this will become particularly active during the conference, following the pattern established in DH2009 at the University of Maryland.

Podcasts: all three plenary sessions will be podcast via  Other podcasts will be made available each day of the conference.  It is hoped that it will be possible to provide a near-complete set of podcasts covering all conference sessions.

Blog(s): a conference blog will be available on There is an open invitation to all conference delegates to contribute to this blog, or of course members of the virtual conference audience who wish to respond to or comment on podcasts, twitter or blog entries as the conference proceeds.

Student Assistants and audio-visual mashups: a number of Student Assistants have been signed up to help with the running of the conference.  Each day, some of these students will be asked to record conference sessions, while others will record brief on-the-spot interviews with speakers and delegates.  Some of these recordings will be archived and made available as podcasts, while a number will be taken by a small team of 'editors' in order to create what we hope will be interesting audio-visual mashups that capture the spirit and some of the highlights of the conference.  New mashups will be produced each day, for screening in the Anatomy Theatre and Museum (ATM) as well as being made available via

Posters: student assistants will be assigned the task of recording brief interviews with each poster presenter, and the complete set of recordings will be made available on

Slides: Each presenter will be invited to provide a copy of any set of slides they use, for inclusion on a DH2010 site on  In addition, each poster display will be photographed and the set of photographs will be published - with the presenters' permission - as a set of slides on the same site.

Digital Scholarship at King's College London

Running alongside the conference and the virtual conference, there will be an informal series of events in the ATM presenting various aspects of digital scholarship across the disciplines at the host institution, King's College London. Presentations, workshops and demonstrations will run throughout the week and conference delegates are welcome to attend and participate in these events. There will be a combination of presentations, discussions and workshops (on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning) and drop-in demonstrations and opportunities for hands-on experimentation (Thursday and Friday). These will focus on four key themes: research infrastructures; tools and methods for advanced research; advanced techniques in practice; and interdisciplinary collaboration. There will also be an opportunity to see some student work in the digital arts and humanities, and to find out more about digital humanities MA programmes offered at King's College London, including the MA in Digital Humanities, MA in Digital Culture & Technology, and the new MA in Digital Asset Management, due to start in October 2010.
