PROPOSALS FOR PAPERS

Preconference activities Friday, March 19, 2010
Conference Saturday & Sunday, March 20 - 21, 2010

DOCAM '10 is the eighth annual meeting of the Document Academy, an
international network of scholars, artists and professionals in various
fields interested in the exploration of the document as a useful
approach, concept and tool in Sciences, Arts, Business, and Society.

The aim of The Document Academy is to create an interdisciplinary space
for experimental and critical research on documents in a wide sense,
drawing on traditions and experiences around the world. It originated as
a co-sponsored effort by The Program of Documentation Studies,
University of Tromso, Norway and the School of Information, University
of California, Berkeley. The University of North Texas College of Information will be hosting the 2010 meeting.

The conference will begin with a gathering Friday evening, March 19, and continue with its mix of formal and informal presentations and discussions from 9 a.m. Saturday, March 20, to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 21. In an effort to preserve the open-ended discussion atmosphere of previous DOCAMs, we will again have only plenary sessions. A poster session will allow for additional exchange of ideas.

Call for proposals:

Scholars, developers, artists and practitioners working with document
research and development are invited to submit proposals for full and
short papers for plenary sessions and posters by December 13, 2009.

- DOCUMENT THEORY (general issues)
- DOCUMENT ANALYSIS (case-studies and methodological issues)
