CURIOS paper accepted for Digital Humanities 2014 Conference

The CURIOS Team has had a paper accepted by conference chairs for the Digital Humanities 2014 Conference. The conference takes place in Lausanne in July where David Beel and Gemma Webster will present the paper. The extended abstract faced a competitive field before being accepted, as their feedback indicates:

“This year the number and standard of abstracts submitted was exceptionally
high, with over 600 submitted, but we are pleased to be able to open up
another parallel track to accommodate more presentations by members of our
growing community.

We have accepted 8 panels, 137 long papers, 84 short papers, and 120 posters.
This gives an overall acceptance rate of 60%. Acceptance rates for panels,
long papers and short papers are just under 50%, with many more posters slots
being made available this year.”
