Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing / European Association of Digital Humanities

A series of conferences running from 1970-2006, mostly in Europe. The organization itself was formed in 1973, and the first conference so-titled was in 1974, however two earlier conferences were held titled "Symposium on the Uses of Computers in Literary Research" that later formed the organization. In 1989, the ALLC and ACH began co-branding their conferences, alternating location and host each year. In 2006, the ACH/ALLC conference was renamed the DH conference, but that conference were still co-listed as an ACH/ALLC conference. Subsequent to 2006, it was simply "DH". The ALLC eventually renamed itself to the "European Association of Digital Humanities," and in 2018 restarted its biennial conference in that name. This series is not to be confused the the ALLC International Meetings / Annual General Meetings (1973-1983).

    The effort to establish ADHO began in Tuebingen, at the ALLC/ACH conference in 2002: a Steering Committee was appointed at the ALLC/ACH meeting in 2004, in Gothenburg, Sweden. At the 2005 meeting in Victoria, the executive committees of the ACH and ALLC approved the governance and conference protocols and nominated their first representatives to the ‘official’ ADHO Steering Committee and various ADHO standing committees. The 2006 conference was the first Digital Humanities conference.
