Micro-OCP is the IBM PC implementation of the Oxford Concordance
Program (OCP) which produces word lists, indexes and concordances from
texts in a variety of languages and alphabets. It is suitable for
many applications in languages, literature and social sciences.

The workshops will give an overview of the applications of Micro-OCP
and show how different Micro-OCP commands can be used. The major
features of the program will be covered in the day and there will be
an opportunity for practical work. The workshops will also be
suitable for users of the mainframe version of OCP.

The workshops will be held on 6 and 11 April 1989 at Oxford University
Computing Service, 13 Banbury Road, Oxford.

[The following announcement of a symposium has been sent to me
for posting. It has been extracted from a slightly longer note.
Thus the initial fragment. W.M.]

.... one such symposium, to be held in September in Lisbon. The title is
"Communication, Meaning, and Knowledge in the Age of Information
Technology". It is co-sponsored by the Portuguese Association for the
Development of Communication (A.P.D.C.) and the Portuguese Society of
Philosophy (SPF). The dates are Sept. 13-15, 1989. Abstracts of
suggested papers should be sent to engineer Maria R. Prata Dias/ Rua
Tomas Ribeiro, 41 - 8., 1000 Lisboa, Portugal.

Three sections are planned: 1. epistemology and cognitive
systematization of the models of communication, artificial
intelligence and computation. 2. advanced communication
technology; ai and computing systems in education. 3. advanced
communication technology; ai, computers and robotics: historical
perspective, prospective trends, cultural and social impact.
Each section will have an opening session by a guest lecturer,
commented by another invited guest. There will then be working
sessions, with the contributions by the participants. The threefold
division does not exclude other possible topics, relevant to the
general aim of the symposium which is to bring together engineers,
computing and communication specialists, educators, and philosophers
in an interdisciplinary spirit.
