    Consortium for Computers in the Humanities / Consortium pour ordinateurs en
    sciences humaines (COCH/COSH)

              **Congress 2003: 2nd Call for Papers and proposals for Panels**

    The annual conference of the Consortium for Computers in the Humanities /
    Consortium pour ordinateurs en sciences humaines at the Congress of the
    Social Sciences and Humanities will be held 27-28 May 2003 at Dalhousie
    University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA.

    This year's theme: Humanities Computing and Pedagogy

    Advances in computing technology and the growing availability of
    information technology resources have had an enormous impact on the way we
    teach. Papers are invited on such topics as:

              the use of WWW resources in the classroom
              application of IT to teaching writing
              development of interactive learning programs
              use of text-analysis in humanities teaching
              the teaching of humanities computing itself

    It is hoped to present a joint session with ACCUTE (Association of Canadian
    College and University Teachers of English) devoted to this year's theme.
    In addition to papers on this subject, proposals for papers or panels on
    any other area of humanities computing research are also welcome.

    DEADLINE for submissions: 28 February 2003

    Proposals for papers and panels must be submitted to the program chair:

    Building Educational Applications Using Natural Language Processing HLT/NAACL 2003 Workshop May 31, 2003 Edmonton, Canada

    http://www.etstechnologies.com/NAACL Overview There is an increased use of NLP-based educational applications for both large-scale assessment and classroom instruction. This has occurred for two primary reasons. First, there has been a significant increase in the availability of computers in schools, from elementary school to the university. Second, there has been notable development in computer-based educational applications that incorporate advanced methods in NLP that can be used to evaluate students' work. Educational applications have been developed across a variety of subject domains in automated evaluation of free-responses and intelligent tutoring. To date, these two research areas have remained autonomous. We hope that this workshop will facilitate communication between researchers who work on all types of instructional applications, for K-12, undergraduate, and graduate school. Since most of this work in NLP-based educational applications is text-based, we are especially interested in any work of this type that incorporates speech processing and other input/output modalities. We wish to expose the NLP research community to these technologies with the hope that they may see novel opportunities for use of their tools in an educational application.

    Call for Papers

    We are especially interested in submissions including, but not limited to:

    * Speech-based tools for educational technology * Innovative text analysis for evaluation of student writing with regard to: a) general writing quality, or b) accuracy of content for domain-specific responses * Text analysis methods to handle particular writing genres, such as legal or business writing, or creative aspects of writing * Intelligent tutoring systems that incorporate state-of-the-art NLP methods to evaluate response content, using either text- or speech-based analyses * Dialogue systems in education * understanding student input * generating the tutors' feedback * evaluation * Evaluation of NLP-based tools for education * Use of student response databases (text or speech) for tool building * Content-based scoring

    NINCH ANNOUNCEMENT News on Networking Cultural Heritage Resources from across the Community February 4, 2003

    Internet2/New World Symphony Workshop and Symposium March 28-29: Miami, FL March 28: Internet2 Performance Production Workshop March 29: Internet2 Music Education Symposium http://events.internet2.edu/2003/NWSIndex.html

    >Date: Tue, 04 Feb 2003 10:49:24 -0500 >From: Ann Doyle <adoyle@internet2.edu> > Hello all -- I am pleased to announce that Internet2 and the New World Symphony are hosting a two-day event, March 28 and 29, at the New World Symphony campus on Miami Beach. The purpose of the event is to introduce educators and technicians from major music schools to the power of high-performance networking for distance education and music collaboration.

    March 28 is an Internet2 Performance Production Workshop designed primarily for technical personnel supporting schools of music and performing arts departments involved in producing live performances and music education events over Internet2. The focus will be on performance production technologies designed to help members create successful multi-site, interactive, digital video/audio productions. There is a charge of $125.00 to attend this event and registration is required.

    March 29 is an Internet2 Music Education Symposium geared toward deans, presidents, administrators and faculty of schools of music. Michael Tilson Thomas, Artistic Director for the New World Symphony, will talk about the New World Symphony's experience with distance education over Internet2. To demonstrate the power and potential of using Internet2 for real time interaction in music education, live demonstrations will be presented, including several master classes with remote participants. There is no charge for this event, but registration is required.

    Those attending the March 28 Workshop are welcome to stay for March 29 Symposium. Saturday evening, March 29, all will be treated to a reception and live New World Symphony concert at the Lincoln Theatre conducted by Maestro Thomas.
