*Focus on Africa*
In the week before the DH2019 conference, the Lorentz Center in Leiden (The Netherlands) will host a satelite workshop aimed at the articulation of the specific developments in the field of DH that are taking shape in Africa and their potential to enhance the global DH agenda. In addition, attention will be given to capacity building and the planning of ‘science4development’ initiatives. A call for nominations and applications from African scholars will be published soon. In the selection procedure extra weight will be attributed to applications from (co)authors of papers and posters accepted for the DH2019 conference programme. A limited number of grants to partly cover the costs for travel, accommodation during the workshop and the DH2019 conference fee can be applied for as well. Workshop date: 1-5 July, 2019.

*Conference Theme*
The theme of the 2019 conference is ‘Complexities’. This theme has a multifaceted connection with Digital Humanities scholarship. Complexities intends to inspire people to focus on Digital Humanities (DH) as the humanist way of building complex models of complex realities, analysing them with computational methods and communicating the results to a broader public. The theme also invites people to think of the theoretical, social, and cultural complexity and diversity in which DH scholarship is immersed and asks our community to interact consciously and critically in myriad ways, through the conference and the networks, institutions and the enterprises interested in DH research. Finally, it means involving the next generation, teaching DH to students—the people who will need to deal with the complexities of the future.
Proposals related to these themes are particularly welcome, but the DH2019 will accept submissions on any other aspect or field of Digital Humanities. For more details, see the full Call for Papers on the conference website.
