             Subject: CFP -- CaSTA: The Inaugural Canadian Symposium on Text
    Analysis Research


    The Inaugural Canadian Symposium on Text Analysis Research
    Montreal, November 23rd, 2002
    sponsored by
    TAPoR (Text Analysis Portal for Research)

    In 2001, a small group of Canadian researchers sought and
    achieved the seemingly impossible -- an enhanced infrastructure for
    computing in the humanities in Canada. With a approximately $6.8
    million grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and
    matching provincial and corporate funding, the group is in the
    process of changing the face of humanities computing nationally
    and globally.

    In conjunction with its fall meeting in Montreal on November 23rd,
    the group is holding its first Symposium. Researchers, graduate
    students and others in the academic community are invited to
    participate and/or attend.

    The Symposium will have two parts:

    1.About 75% devoted to research presentations; the author of the
    best submission will be invited to give the keynote address

    2.About 25% devoted to a panel on TAPoR -- its Future.
    Submissions are invited for on a panel on visions of the future.
    What can and should TAPoR do? How should it serve the
    humanities research community? What should TAPoR be in 5
    years? 10 years?

    To participate, please submit a 300-500 word abstract by October
    25th to interaction@fis.utoronto.ca. Authors will be notified within
    one week of receipt.

    Topics include but are not limited to the following:

    a) digitization and representation of text
    b) TEI, XML and other encoding techniques
    c) metadata issues for humanities text
    d) use of humanities digital resources
    e) needs of the humanities community
    f) cross-disciplinary use of texts
