Call of site-specific 

Digital Research in the Humanities and Arts [DRHA] is an annual conference 
whose goal is to bring together the creators, users, distributors, and 
custodians of digital research and resources in the arts, design and humanities 
to explore the capture, archiving and communication of complex and creative 
research processes. DRHA provides an intellectual and physical space for 
cross-disciplinary discussion and the generation of new ideas, resulting in 
many new networks and productive research relationships

Human beings, as users, have always been obsessed with finding new ways of 
communicating through various techniques and technologies.
The rapid technological changes that have occurred during the last two decades 
have allowed us – the users – to communicate through various social media 
platforms, providing us with more easily, faster and more frequently ways of 
communicating.However there are always concerns about other impacts those 
technologies might have on the communication processes.

The aim of the conference is to facilitate conversations on Design and 
collaborations between

Digital Arts and Humanities,
Creative Industries,
Digital Libraries and Archives,

For the first time the DRHA conference would like to support and bring together 
the Academic environment with that of the Creative industries under a 
conference that will affect the current interdisciplinary creative practices.
