    DRH 2000 : DIGITAL RESOURCES FOR THE HUMANITIES, University of Sheffield,
    10-13 September 2000

    The DRH conferences have established themselves firmly in the UK and
    international calendar as a forum that brings together scholars,
    librarians, archivists, curators, information scientists and computing
    professionals in a unique and positive way, to share ideas and information
    about the creation, exploitation, management and preservation of digital
    resources in the arts and humanities.

    The DRH 2000 conference will take place at the University of Sheffield,
    10-13 September 2000. Proposals for academic papers, themed panel
    sessions, posters and workshops are invited. Themes include: the creation
    of digital resources; their delivery, use and integration; the impact of
    digital resources on humanities research and education.

    The deadline for submission is 6 March 2000.

    Full details about the conference and the submission of proposals may be
    found at:


    Please address any queries to drh2000@sheffield.ac.uk

    CALL FOR HOSTS : DRH 2001 and DRH 2002

    The DRH Standing Committee warmly invites proposals to host the DRH
    conferences in 2001 and 2002. Further information about DRH together with
    the conference Protocol, which includes guidelines for prospective hosts,
    is available via the DRH Web site at http://www.drh.org.uk/.

    Proposals to host DRH should be submitted by 8 April 2000 to the Chair of
    the Standing Committee, Marilyn Deegan
    (marilyn.deegan@queen-elizabeth-house.oxford.ac.uk), giving as much detail
    as possible to help the Committee in its selection process. Previous
    hosts of DRH have found running the conference very rewarding and have
    also found that it can be an opportunity to alert their wider institution
    to research activities in this area.

    Call for Participation - 2nd international Language Resources and
    Evaluation Conference (LREC2000)

    Year 2000 marks the beginning of a new era for Human Language
    Technology and Language Engineering. The European Commission
    and the US National Science Foundation have announced
    Multilinguality as one of their main action points. The 2nd
    international Language Resources and Evaluation Conference
    (LREC2000), the second of a series of leading biennial events
    representing cross-sectoral research and development in
    speech, text, multi-media, and multi-modal processing, is
    committed to promoting the language engineering initiatives
    of these and similar organizations.

    LREC2000, scheduled to take place 29 May - 2 June 2000 in
    Athens, Greece, has accepted nearly 300 papers for
    presentation at the main conference. About 10 pre- and
    post-conference satellite workshops will also take place.
    Many commercial and research systems for speech and natural
    language processing will be demonstrated at the LREC2000
    Exhibition in parallel with the conference sessions. From
    500 to 700 conference delegates are expected to attend this
    conference, with half coming from the corporate and
    industrial sectors and half coming from the academic field.

                              WORKSHOP II
                held in conjunction with NAACL/ANLP2000

                        Thursday, May 4, 2000
                       Seattle, Washington, USA

               Embedded MT Systems homepage for this workshop


    An "embedded MT system" is a computational system with one
    or more MT engines among its components. These systems
    accept multilingual, multimodal inputs and create various outputs
    that enable the users to access the original information in their
    own language. An MT component embedded in an end-to-end system
    allows users to perform their specific tasks on foreign language
    input that they previously only had been able to perform in
    their native language. To date, these tasks have included
    summarization, content extraction, filtering and document

    Beyond Control or Through the Looking Glass? Threats and Liberties in the
    Electronic Age

    Friday 28 April 2000

    The Oxford Union Debating Chamber

    Organised by: Humanities Computing Unit, University of Oxford


    We are constantly being told that the new technologies, and particularly
    the Internet will bring unparalleled benefits to society by increasing
    access to all manner of resources, educational, cultural, and
    entertainment. Yet at the same time we read of Internet scare stories
    about the availability of pornography, racist material, and information
    inciting violence. How can we square this circle? Is the Internet 'Beyond
    Control', or are we 'Through the Looking Glass' into a wonderland of
    strange and new adventures.

    Set in the historical Debating Chamber of the Oxford Union, distinguished
    speakers will present their views and debate the future shape of our
    culture's landscape. The format of Beyond Control will be a mixture of
    presentations, open discussion, and debates. We will aim to stimulate
    discussion between the speakers and encourage the audience to participate

    The list of invited speakers is growing all the time, and at the
    moment we are pleased to announce the following.

                    --- PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ---
            The Association for Machine Translation in the Americas

    AMTA-2000 Conference
    Location: Cuernavaca, Mexico
    Dates: October 10-14, 2000

    Envisioning Machine Translation in the Information Future

    The Association for Machine Translation in the Americas (AMTA) is happy to
    announce the plans for the fourth biennial conference, planned for October
    10-14 at Mision del Sol, near Cuernavaca, Mexico.

    The theme of AMTA-2000 is "Envisioning MT in the Information Future." The
    focus will be on the articulation of future visions of MT: in the '00
    decade, the 21st century, and even in the third millennium. Ubiquitous,
    instant internet access will be available very soon from a host of
    appliances and apparel. Later on, ways of thinking about the universe of
    information will transcend our current metaphors of networks, clients,
    servers, and communication. How will these and other possible paths into
    the future affect our exponential need for translation? Will the process of
    translation become transparent? How long before we each have a true
    babelfish in our ear? Will the quality ceiling finally be broken by
    incremental improvements, or by an as yet unimagined breakthrough? Will
    translation even be necessary - will globalization lead to a single
    language, or will translation allow for the growth of local languages?
