We invite submissions from anyone who presented at the meeting, including those who gave long and short papers, or who participated in panels and poster sessions.

The vision for the GeoHumanities SIG began at the DH2013 conference in Lincoln, where a number of panels and papers addressed questions of place and geographic connections and contexts.

ADHO Chair Neil Fraistat offered the following summary of ADHO's Steering Committee meeting at DH 2013 and activities over the past year:
Inclusivity is a core value of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations and of the associations and communities of practice brought together under its umbrella. However, like many projects in humanities computing, the creation of inclusive enabling structures within ADHO must remain a work in progress. This work requires: regular, careful, humble, honest self-examination; conscious efforts to create an environment of transparency and fair-dealing; and an inviting stance toward the input of under-represented groups or disciplines.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) is pleased to announce that the venue of Digital Humanities 2015 will be Sydney, Australia. The conference will take place at the Parramatta campus of the University of Western Sydney from 29 June-3 July 2015, during the mild Sydney winter. This will be the first Digital Humanities conference held outside of North America or Europe.
