An increasingly significant part of the current documentary memory is being digitized in the Information Technology (ICT) systems of private companies and public institutions, on servers connected to the global network, as well as on our computers and mobile devices. At the same time, files inherited from the past are subjected to digital conversion processes and become increasingly accessible over the Internet. To discuss the relationship between historical research, sources and digital means, means to confront a rapidly changing access to information dynamics, as well as to trace some lines of possible criticism of digital sources capable of providing the historian and not only with the essential tools for analysis and interpretation to face the complex technological, cultural and social stratifications of the new digital era.

We invite the submission of proposals that fit into the following thematic axes:

- The digitization of public and private archives
- Methods and techniques of digitization and digital preservation
- The impact of information born in digital format
- Public use of the digital archive


The selection of the proposals will be carried out by the members of the Scientific Committee, being guided by the objective of guaranteeing the maximum quality, relevance and originality of the works and also taking into account the scientific merit of the proponent(s).

The communication proposals must be presented in a text with a maximum of 500 words (in Portuguese, Spanish or English). Proposers should attach a biographical note of 200 words, indicating their institutional affiliation and an email for contact.


Proposals must be sent in word format to the following address:
