1999 Conference of the Association for Computers & the Humanities
and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing
June 9-13: Charlottesville, VA

April 1 Deadline for Non-Member Low-Cost Registration ($175)

I would encourage all readers to consider attendance at this year's
conference of the Association for Computers & the Humanities, held in
conjunction with the Europe-based Association for Literary and Linguistic
Computing, at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

This annual conference has broadened its appeal and, following this
announcement of the conference, drawn from the website, I have taken the
liberty of showing a selection of the program to give a sense of this
evolving association.
