Registration Opens for DigiPal Symposium: Monday 16th September 2013

Breaking news: Jane Roberts (Insitute of English Studies) has been added to the list of speakers. Full programme soon.

Date: Monday 16th September 2013

Event: DigiPal Symposium III

Co-sponsor: Centre for Late Antique and Medieval Studies, King's College London

Location: King's College London, Strand WC2R 2LS

Dear all,

It is with great delight that the DigiPal team (Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London) announce that registration is now open for the third DigiPal Symposium (list of speakers below).

Attendance is free and open to all, but places are limited and so registration is essential.

As we're celebrating the relaunch of our website and database, we're pleased to offer a *free* sandwich-style lunch to the first 80 participants who register. Who said there's no such thing as a "free lunch"? I guess those who dilly and dally before registering ;-)

How do I register?

To register, send an email to digipal [at], including your details as you would like them to appear on your name badge. Registration is likely to close on Friday 6th September 2013. Of course, if you want to be in with a chance of the coveted free lunch, then we recommend registering as soon as possible. Oh, and do please let us know if you are vegetarian.

Looking forward to seeing you in September,

Stewart Brookes and Peter Stokes
