I'm delighted to write today to extend a special invitation to all HASTAC 2010 Scholars to participate in the HASTAC 2010: Grand Challenges and Global Innovations Conference.
Held April 15-17, 2010 and hosted by the Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science at the University of Illinois, HASTAC 2010: Grand Challenges and Global Innovations will be a free, entirely virtual event held in a multiplicity of digital spaces instigated from sites across the globe.This years’ event will focus on grand challenges and global innovations in the form of technologies, research, teaching, and inquiry that can be leveraged across personal, physical, geographical, institutional, disciplinary, and organizational boundaries. HASTAC 2010 seeks to ask: what are the influence(s) of virtual spaces that can transcend boundaries to impact global innovations? How will the next generation of digital technologies alter personal, physical, geographical, institutional, disciplinary, and organizational boundaries? What are the grand challenges in humanities, arts, and sciences that will shape the next generation of global innovation?

But I wanted to draw your attention to a special initiative designed especially for HASTAC Scholars.
HASTAC 2010 would like to feature work in progress (written, visual, technical, artistic etc) from undergraduate and graduate students. These special sessions would offer you the opportunity to do a short presentation (5-7 minutes) on your ongoing work and to receive feedback from other presenters and conference attendees.You can present via powerpoint, digital video, podcast, or via second life.
This is a great way to float a new project, get feedback on a seminar paper, get input from the brilliant scholars that are part of the HASTAC community etc.
To indicate your interest in one of these special presentations, you should complete the online application at: http://nucri.nu.edu/hastac/ following the guidelines specified. However, the title of your presentation should read: HASTAC SCHOLAR SHORT: (your title)
Of course, HASTAC Scholars are also welcome to submit for a full length (20 minute) presentation via the general call for papers that is listed above. In that case, just follow the regular rules of the conference application process.
The deadline for conference submissions has been extended to MIDNIGHT, JANUARY 4, 2010.
