        The Document
            Academy invites PROPOSALS FOR PAPERS 


      DOCAM'12 is the ninth annual meeting of the Document Academy, an
      international network of scholars, artists and professionals in
      various fields, who are interested in the exploration of the
      concept of the document as a resource for scholarly, artistic, and
      professional work.


      The aim of The Document Academy is to foster a multi-disciplinary
      space for experimental and critical research on the document in
      the widest sense, drawing on scholarship, traditions and
      experiences from the arts and humanities, social sciences, education, and
      from such diverse fields as information, media, museum, archival,
      cultural, and science studies.


      Document Academy originated as a co-sponsored effort by the Program of
      Documentation Studies, University of Tromsø, Norway, and
      the School of Information, University of California, Berkeley. The
      2012 conference is hosted by the Faculty of Information &
      Media Studies at the University of Western Ontario in London,
      Ontario, Canada.


      The conference is tentatively scheduled to begin with a reception
      and keynote presentation on Wednesday evening, August 15, and to
      continue with presentations and discussions from 9 a.m. on
      Thursday, August 16, to 6:00 p.m. on Friday, August 17. These dates will be
        confirmed shortly. To preserve the atmosphere of
      open-ended discussion of previous DOCAM conferences, DOCAM'12 will
      feature only plenary sessions and a poster session to allow for
      additional exchange of ideas.
