Scope of the Workshop
This workshop provides a forum for presenting and discussing current and emerging research on technology that supports family history and genealogy. Results should address technology problems whose solutions have the potential to improve family history and genealogical research work. The workshop will include a keynote speaker and technical presentations.
Who Should Attend
We invite all who enjoy learning about emerging technology as it applies to family history and genealogy. We especially invite those who do research and publish in the areas of informatics, computer science, statistics, linguistics, and library science.
Topics of Interest
We solicit submissions of original research as well as experience papers that address, but are not limited to:
How to Submit
Authors should submit full length papers along with an abstract to
the submission website.
How to do a Demo
Those interested in demonstrating their family history technology or software can contact the demo chair, John Finlay. Each demonstrator will take 1 minute in the main auditorium to tell "what they've got and why it's cool", and will be able to give people hands-on demonstrations during several breaks in the main presentations.
Awards will be given for the top student papers.
