    In recent years techniques from disciplines such as computer science,
    artificial intelligence and statistics have found their way into the
    pages of journals such as the Journal of Quantitative Linguistics,
    Literary and Linguistic Computing and Computers and the
    Humanities. The two previous CIMQL workshops have had invited speakers
    presenting their own work in these areas, but in response to
    participant demand, the third CIMQL workshop will be devoted to
    introductory methods in Statistics.

    The workshop is designed to introduce the participants to statistical
    techniques in a practical environment. Time will be spent in
    traditional lectures as well as working with statistical software on
    examples taken from linguistics and literature. The presenters, Fiona
    Tweedie and Lisa Lena Opas-Hanninen, have experience of teaching this
    material to a wide variety of students from European countries. Their
    aim in this workshop is to enable the participants to return to their
    home institutions able to carry out these techniques in the course of
    their own research.

    Topics covered will include:
    * Introduction; Basic approaches and vocabulary,
    * Summary statistics and displaying data,
    * Confidence intervals and hypothesis testing; differences in
        means and proportions,
    * Tests of Association - Chi-square test, correlation
    * Linear Regression; One-way Analysis of Variance.

    The workshop will be held in the Boyd-Orr building of the University
    of Glasgow, commencing on Tuesday 18 July at 1pm. The workshop
    sessions will take place on Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday 19 July,
    Thursday 20 July and the morning of Friday 21 July. There will
    also be a half day tour on the Friday afternoon and a reception in
    the Hunterian Art Gallery on Tuesday evening.

    Accommodation has been arranged in university accommodation. The
    reception, tea and coffee, lunches on 19, 20 and 21 July and evening
    meals on 18, 19 and 20 July are included in the registration fee. The
    registration fee, until 31 May, is GBP200.00 and GBP150.00 for
    students. Participants who are also attending the ALLC/ACH Conference,
    21-25 July are eligible for a discount in the ALLC/ACH registration fees.

    For more information about the workshop and to register, please

    email to the conference organisers at cimql@stats.gla.ac.uk.

    Hubert Dreyfus

    Greetings Humanists,

    ((Prof. Hubert Dreyfus (University of California, Berkeley) will be
    speaking on "Could Anything be more Intelligible than Everyday
    Intelligibility?: Reinterpreting Division I of _Being and Time_ in the
    light of Division II" --A great venture to be there!! --Arun))

    ((In the words of great philosopher, Michel Foucault, he commented on
    Heidegger in his last interview, "..For me Heidegger has always been
    the essential philosopher....My entire philosophical development was
    determined by my reading of Heidegger...." [Courtesy: "Being and Power:
    Heidegger and Foucault" -by Hubert L. Dreyfus]

    ((In the words of Heidegger on the philosophy of electricity as the
    paradigm technological stuff, "..The revealing that rules throughout
    modern technology has the character of a setting-upon, in the sense of a
    challenging-forth. That challenging happens in that the energy concealed
    in nature is unlocked, what is unlocked is transformed, what is
    transformed is stored up, what is stored up is, in turn, distributed, and
    what is distributed is switched about ever anew.." [Courtesy: "Being and
    Power: Heidegger and Foucault" -by Hubert L. Dreyfus]

    One Pointer: "Hubert Dreyfus ON "Intelligence Without Representation
    is Merleau-Ponty's Critique of Mental Representation, The Relevance of
    Phenomenology to Scientific Explanation" -can be found at
