    RARE BOOK SCHOOL is pleased to announce its 2002 Sessions, a collection of
    five-day, non-credit courses on topics concerning rare books, manuscripts,
    the history of books and printing, and special collections to be held at
    the University of Virginia.

    Subscribers to the Humanist list may find the following Rare Book School
    courses to be of particular interest:

    6-10). Encoded Archival Description (EAD) provides standardized
    machine-readable access to primary resource materials. This course is aimed
    at archivists, librarians, and museum personnel who would like an
    introduction to EAD that includes an extensive supervised hands-on
    component. Students will learn SGML encoding techniques in part using
    examples selected from among their own institutions' finding aids. Topics:
    the context out of which EAD emerged; introduction to the use of SGML
    authoring tools and browsers; the conversion of existing finding aids to
    EAD. Instructor: Daniel Pitti

    DANIEL PITTI became Project Director at the University of Virginia's
    Institute for Advanced Technology in 1997, before which he was Librarian
    for Advanced Technologies at the University of California, Berkeley. He was
    the Coordinator of the Encoded Archival Description initiative. He has
    taught this course since 1997, usually twice annually.

    exploration of the research, preservation, editing, and pedagogical uses of
    electronic texts and images in the humanities. The course will center
    around the creation of a set of archival-quality etexts and digital images,
    for which we shall also create an Encoded Archival Description guide.
    Topics include: SGML tagging and conversion; using the Text Encoding
    Initiative Guidelines; the form and implications of XML; publishing on the
    World Wide Web; and the management and use of online texts. Some experience
    with HTML is a prerequisite for admission to the course. Instructor: David

    DAVID SEAMAN is the founding director of the internationally renowned
    Electronic Text Center and online archive at the University of Virginia. He
    lectures and writes frequently on SGML, the Internet, and the creation and
    use of electronic texts in the humanities. He has taught this course at
    Rare Book School many times since 1994.

                            Second North American Summer School
                              Logic, Language and Information
                           June 17-21, 2003, Bloomington, Indiana


                       CALL FOR COURSE and WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

    The main focus of the North American Summer School in Logic, Language and
    Information is on the interface between linguistics, logic and
    computation, broadly conceived, and on related fields. The school is the
    second NASSLLI, following the successful first school at Stanford in June,
    2002. Our sister school, the European Summer School in Logic, Language,
    and Information, has been highly successful, becoming an important meeting
    place and forum for discussion for students and researchers interested in
    the interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language and Information. We intend
    for NASSLLI to similarly become an important setting. The NASSLLI Steering
    Committee invites proposals for introductory and advanced courses, and for
    workshops on a wide range of topics.

    In addition to courses and workshops there will be a Student
    Session. A Call for Papers for the Student Session will be
    distributed separately.

    A NOTE ON THE DATES OF NASSLLI The Summer School comes at a time of year
    when many conferences take place. NASSLLI comes just after the
    Federated Computing Research Conference (June 714) in San Diego:
    see http://www.acm.org/sigs/conferences/fcrc/
    and just before
    the IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (June 22 - 25) in Ottawa,
              http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/als/lics/ .
    NASSLLI also comes somewhat before the LSA Summer Institute (June 30-August 8)
    in East Lansing:

    PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: Proposals should be submitted
    by email to nasslli@indiana.edu by October 15, 2002.
    should follow the guidelines below while preparing their submissions;
    proposals that deviate might not be considered.

             Subject: EACL03: Last Call for Workshop Proposals


                   Proposal submission deadline: October 1, 2002

                 The EACL-03 Organizing Committee invites proposals
                       for workshops to be held at EACL-03.

          EACL-03 will take place in Budapest, Hungary, April 12-17, 2003
       with workshops being held on Sunday and Monday, April 13 and 14, 2003.

    * Workshop topics

       EACL-03 workshops provide organizers and participants with an
       opportunity to focus intensively on a specific topic within
       computational linguistics. Often, workshops concentrate on specific
       topics of technical interest (e.g., parsing technologies), particular
       areas of application for language processing technologies (e.g., NLP
       applied to IR), or community-wide issues that deserve attention (e.g.,
       standardization of resources and tools).

       We welcome proposals on any topic that is of interest to the EACL
       community, but we particularly encourage proposals that broaden the
       scope of our community through the consideration of new or
       interdisciplinary techniques or applications.

       We also encourage topics that are specific to the EACL community such
       as resources and tools for European or Mediterranean languages.
