The Humanities Computing Development Team (HCDT) has been in operation for
almost six months from within Oxford's Humanities Computing Unit. The HCDT
has the remit of working with Humanities academics and staff within the
University to develop IT-based teaching and research projects. Four
projects have been developed to date and this seminar will give us the
opportunity to demonstrate the work which we have done so far, and to
invite comments and questions. The short programme will take place as

2.00 The HCDT: where did it come from, and what is it for? Sarah Porter

The URL was given in an outdated form last time: it is:


The Workshops on Human-Computer Conversation in Bellagio, Italy,
took place in 1997 and 1998, as small groups of experts from
industry and academia met to discuss this pressing question for
the future of Language Engineering, not as an academic question
only, but chiefly to bring forward for discussion computer
demonstrations and activities within company laboratories that
were not being published or discussed. The Workshops were highly
successful in these aims and we now wish to widen participation
and add distinguished speakers, as well as introducing more
theoretical topics, though without losing the practical emphasis.
The site remains one of the finest in the world, and it promoted
excellent and intimate discussions in 1997 and 1998.

The emphasis this year will take note of the CE Fifth Framework
calls announced under Human Language Technology and in particular
the emphasis on interactivity. We also plan to emphasise (in
invited talks) the issue of politeness and whether it is
crucial or dispensible to conversation, as well as recent
results on statistical/empirical work on dialogue corpora,
and on deriving marked up dialogue corpora.

All details, including previous program, program committee,
accomodation and travel, details of registration (a form is
attached below for the convenience of some) are on the web site.
Hotels are in great demand at that time of year and intending
participants should book soon.

Subject: MT Summit 99 - theme session suggestion

>> From: Jeff ALLEN <jeff@elda.fr>

Dear colleagues in the field of translation technologies:

As you are aware, the deadline for paper submissions to
Machine Translation (MT) Summit 1999 is soon approaching.

The European Language Resources Association (ELRA)
would like to see if a theme session on language resources=20
could be organized at the conference if enough papers on the
topic are submitted.

We would highly encourage you to consider proposing a paper
on the theme of language resources/databases/corpora that
are used in MT and other translation systems/applications.
