CATH '95 (Computers and Teaching in the Humanities)


The CATH '95 conference will be held at Royal Holloway, University of
London, Egham, Surrey, from 5th-7th September 1995.

The conference is organized by the Office for Humanities Communication and
the Computers in Teaching Initiative Centre for Textual Studies (both at
the University of Oxford), and the English Department, Royal Holloway.

The theme of this year's conference is Computers and the Changing
Curriculum. We would like to encourage proposals which include practical
experiences of the use of computers in teaching, and approaches taken by
the teacher in integrating computing into courses, describing problems as

Contributions are invited for individual formal papers (30 minutes
inclusive of 10 minute question time), panel sessions comprising three
related papers, or workshops. Workshops should be about 2-hours in length
and should involve hands-on tuition as well as time for discussion; the
level of experience aimed at should be indicated (and may be from novice to
more experienced).

For individual papers, please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words
(500 for each paper in a panel session) no later than April 14th. This
should include a summary paragraph of the main points covered in your paper
which will be used in the programme to describe the session. For workshops,
a descriptive paragraph of aims and means will suffice. The proposals will
be refereed by a programme committee and all authors will be notified of
the outcome by early May. We are also interested in proposals for other
forms of presentation such as poster sessions, and demonstrations at the
software fair.

Further information including a draft programme and costs is expected to be
available in May. All participants at the CATH '94 conference will be sent
these details.
