    Dear Céline,
    thank you very much for your interest in our conference. Unfortunately the deadline for submitting abstracts has already expired, but you are very welcome to our conference without a paper. You will find a preliminary program on these pages, and soon there will be information about registration and conference fees too. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
    Best from Tromsø!

    I am interested to become s student member of DOCAM. I am working on the “medium of a document” being a document itself, using the original archives of 17th century found in Québec and Canadian repositories as an example. These documents were written on hand made paper with watermarks. The study of these metadata is part of my research on this topic.

    Thank you.
