An international seminar

7-9 September 1998

The seminar was made possible thanks to a grant from the Faculty of
Arts for the year 1997-98 and it is organised in association with: The
Computer & Writing Association, University of Aberdeen; CTI Textual
Studies, University of Oxford; CRILet, Center for Literary Computing,
University of Rome; BOLLETTINO '900, Dept. of Italian, University of

The seminar, conducted in English, aims to bring together a
heterogeneous but significant group of scholars in order to promote
lively and informal discussion on the future of philology, writing,
and literary analysis in the digital support era. The conference will
be interdisciplinary and contributions are welcome from the fields of
literature, philology, writing and composition, linguistics, cognitive
science, psychology, etc.

2. Call for papers
3. List of contributors (provisional)
4. Registration Form


*Encoding of linear and non-linear document sources*: Theory and
practice. Text encoding has been the central problem of humanities
computing for years. However, today the question is not only how to
achieve a standard for representing texts, but also how to structure
(concept mapping) and encode different sources of information (images,
sounds, etc.). What happens to structured information once it has left
its paper medium and become electronic? What does this process imply
for transmission of information? In this session, apart from
theoretical papers, there will be discussions on present conventions
(such as SGML, HTML, etc.) and future developments.

*Computers and Philology*: digital realisation of critical editions
and the possibilities of the WWWeb. New definitions of the concept of
the editio critica or abandonment of the concept of authorship? The
epistemology of text and the problems of text transmission will be at
the heart of this session, which will evaluate current projects and
examine the prospects opened up by the Internet.

*Text analysis and virtual data-banks*: new definitions of textual
criticism in the light of literary computing. How information
technology modifies the concept of source and interpretation,
challenging traditional historical disciplines. Presentation of
projects and applications in progress.

*Hype or Hypertext?* Critical evaluation of the theoretical
underpinning of the North American school (George Landow, Michael
Joyce, Ted Nelson, etc.), and assessment of the place of hypertext
theory in the history of books and writing. Review of the more
promising products available on line, and investigation of the
educational possibilities of hypertext in the study of languages and

*Keynote speakers* include: Lou Burnard (Oxford University);
Giuseppe Gigliozzi (University of Rome); Willard
McCarty (King's College, London); Francisco Marcos Marin (Universidad
Autonoma, Madrid); David Robey (University of Reading); Antonio
Zampolli (CNR, Pisa).


*IMPORTANT NOTICE*: due to time constraints, and to preserve the
creative dynamics of the seminar, the number of presentations will be
limited to 15.

*Contributions* should be 20 minutes in length and proposals in the
form of a 500 word abstract (preferably written in HTML) should be
submitted via e-mail by June 30th to: itadfp@srv0.arts.ed.ac.uk or
mc9809@mclink.it. All proposals will be reviewed, and authors of
accepted papers will be notified by July 15th. Abstracts of papers
will be published on the seminar web site.

Subject: FroCoS'98: Second Call for Papers


Frontiers of Combining Systems

ILLC, University of Amsterdam
October 2-4, 1998

In various areas of logic, computation, language processing, and artificial
intelligence there is an obvious need for using specialized formalisms and
inference mechanisms for special tasks. To be usable in practice, these
specialized systems must be combined with each other, and they must be
integrated into general purpose systems. The development of general
techniques for the combination and integration of special systems has been
initiated in many areas.

The first international workshop on `Frontiers of Combining Systems'
(FroCoS'96) was held in Munich in 1996. Like its predecessor, `Frontiers of
Combining Systems `98' (FroCoS'98) is intended to offer a common forum for
research activities in the general area of combination and integration of
systems. It also offers the possibility to present results on particular
instances of combination and integration, and on their practical use.

Papers on the following topics are especially welcome:
+ combination of constraint solving techniques and combination of
decision procedures
+ integration of data structures deduction processes
+ integration of equational and other theories into deductive systems
+ combinations of logics and of term rewriting systems
+ hybrid systems in computational linguistics, knowledge representation,
natural language processing, and HCI
+ logical modeling of multi-agent systems.
Papers on related subjects will also be considered.

The fourth workshop on tree-adjoining grammars and related frameworks
(hence the + after TAG) will be held at the Institute for Research in
Cognitive Science at the University of Pennsylvania in August 1998,
from August 1 to August 3. Previous workshops were held at Dagstuhl
(1990), UPenn (1992), and Univ. Paris 7 (1994).

Prior to the workshop there will be a tutorial (including labs and
demos) from July 28 to July 31 1998. Information about the tutorial
is below, followed by information about the workshop.



The tutorial is open to anyone interested, though we request a
pre-registration and we may limit attendance. We therefore suggest
you indicate interest in attending to Jennifer MacDougall at the
earliest date possible. (See contact information below.)

Travel Stipends

A limited number of travel stipends will be available for graduate
students (i.e., people studying towards a master's or doctorate
degree). This stipend will be limited to a maximum of US$600. If you
are interested in obtaining such a stipend, please send a message to
Jennifer MacDougall at the address below. Please include a one-page
summary (in ASCII text format) of your educational background and of
your planned or present research, and indicate how the tutorial would
enhance your education and/or planned research. (Information about
accommodations will be provided at a later date.)
