EADH2020 is hosted in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, a city of one million people located next to one of the largest world rivers flowing to the Arctic Ocean. We introduce Diversity as the conference theme because this is the first time that the EADH conference is staged in a place where several academic traditions can be integrated to produce a variety of perspectives in Digital Humanities.

Siberian Federal University belongs to a group of twenty Russian universities involved in the Russian Academic Excellence Project aimed to modernise the Russian higher education. With 26,000 students and over 3,000 faculty members, it has experienced recent infrastructural changes which resulted in new buildings, recreational parks and other facilities. Siberian Federal University staged two major Digital Humanities conferences in 2015 and 2017. This resulted in establishing the Russian Association for Digital Humanities which became the Associate Organization of the European Association for Digital Humanities in 2018.
