Annotation Unleashed: The Web at 30

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee included annotation as a basic capability in the first description of what would become the World Wide Web. 30 years later, we gather at #ianno19 to mark how web annotation is now realizing its promise through standards, developing technology, a vibrant community, and growing traction in many fields.

Call for Proposals

Submissions are now open for proposals to present at I Annotate 2019, the seventh annual conference dedicated to annotation technologies and practices, to be held Wed 22–Thu 23 May at the American Geophysical Union's newly refurbished "net zero" headquarters in Washington DC.

The theme at #ianno19 is: Annotation Unleashed: The Web at 30

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee included annotation as a basic capability in the first description of what would become the World Wide Web. 30 years later, we gather at #ianno19 to mark how web annotation is now realizing its promise through standards, developing technology, a vibrant community, and growing traction in many fields.

The program for the two-day main conference will include a mix of plenary presentations and panels, flash talks, demonstrations, more in-depth "workshop" sessions, and some unconferencing, where attendees collaborate during the gathering to set additional session topics beyond the formal program. A full hack day/do-a-thon follows the main conference, during which people will work together on specific hands-on projects to advance annotation technologies and practices.

We encourage proposals that highlight the use of annotation in all fields. Past conferences have included sessions on annotation in education, journalism/fact-checking, research and scholarship, and technology. To foster a vibrant and inclusive intellectual community, we strongly encourage proposals from presenters with diverse identities, cultural backgrounds and life experiences.
