    artists and their audiences confront in creating, distributing and/or
    re-using the arts online.

    What has been the impact of the Internet on the creative community and how
    has copyright law and practice and other legal structures affected what can
    be done online? Practitioners, lawyers, legal scholars, and a critical
    commentator on digital copyright law and practice come together to offer
    their wisdom and experiences to those creating and using the arts online.

    After an introductory keynote address by June Besek, in which she reviews
    copyright basics and current key developments in digital copyright
    legislation, the meeting will comprise three panels:

    * Art & Work: Copyright, Contracts and Work-for-Hire
    * Access & Use: Copyright, The Public Domain and the First Amendment
    * Artists and Copyright: Experiences Working Online

    The meeting will conclude with an open forum with questions, comments and
    discussion on the issues raised by the presentations.

    Students, Faculty and Staff get more at PHPCon East 2003

    PHP is emerging technology at its best; an open source language with the technical muscle to turn static information into a vigorous e-commerce site and cogent, tailored customer messaging. Flexible and cost effective, it's sought after technology by many of today's employers.

    At PHPCon East 2003, we're bridging the gap between higher learning and professional experience through three days of intensive learning. We've assembled the gurus to show you what PHP can do, what new breakthroughs are on the horizon, and why it's the scripting language of choice for Yahoo, Inc. and nearly 9 million domains worldwide.

    PHPCon East 2003 offers classroom-style tutorials and three technical session tracks on Enterprise PHP, Applications Development and XML/Web Services by PHP notables including PHP inventor Rasmus Lerdorf, Zend's Zeev Suraski, MySQL's Zak Greant, Apache.org's Jim Winstead, NYU's Hans Zaunere, and authors Luke Welling, Laura Thompson, Sterling Hughes, and Christian Wenz.

    Register by March 31st and take advantage of reduced tutorial and conference rates. Currently enrolled students are eligible for an additional 50% off registration rates. University Faculty and Staff receive a 20% discount. Log on http://www.php-con.com/return.php?i=ny3 for full program and registration details.

    *Announcement: Local Humanities Computing Workshops*

    University of Victoria 23-28 June, 2003 Sponsored by the University of Victoria and Malaspina University-College < http://web.mala.bc.ca/siemensr/HCSeminar/2003.htm >

    In response to local needs for training in areas key to computing in the Arts and Humanities, UVic and Malaspina U-C are offering a series of interrelated workshops focusing on digitsation, text encoding, multimedia, and text analysis tools. We anticipate that institutional sponsors will secure most seats, but we also welcome applications from those outside sponsoring institutions, should additional seats be available.

    The particulars of the workshops are found below and, in more detail, on the website listed above. For further information, and for inquiries regarding space in the workshops, please contact Ray Siemens, Malaspina U-C, at siemensr@mala.bc.ca.


    *Stream 1: Text Encoding and Tools

    Text Encoding (Susan Schreibman, U Maryland): Provides an introduction to the theory and practice of encoding electronic texts for the humanities. This workshop is designed for individuals who are contemplating embarking on a text encoding project, or for those who would like to better understand the philosophy, theory, and practicalities of encoding in XML (Extensible Markup Language) using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) guidelines, and/or Encoded Archival Description (EAD). No previous knowledge of XML, the TEI or EAD is necessary. However, a familiarity with HTML would be useful.

    Text Analysis Tools (Stefan Sinclair, U Alberta): Provides a thorough introduction to the fundamental concepts and skills for computer-assisted text analysis. It is appropriate for any scholar wishing to explore how the computer can be used as an aid to textual research, with a particular focus on literary criticism.

    *Stream 2: Digitisation and Multimedia

    Digitisation (Ray Siemens, Malaspina U-C, and staff from the M U-C Centre for Digital Humanities Innovation): Conveys skills necessary to digitise objects -- text (OCR), image, sound, video -- both via direct capture and conversion processes. This workshop is 'bootstrap' in orientation, assuming participants have only basic computing competency.

    New Media and Multimedia (Andrew Mactavish, McMaster U): Balancing theory and practice, participants will learn how to create interactive works of multimedia. The course is designed for individuals with interest in exploring, in a hands-on fashion, a range of applications of multimedia, from research and teaching documents to works of art and entertainment. Experience digitising multimedia objects is required; these are imparted in the digitisation workshop, but this requirement will be waived has requisite skills. In addition, experience using examples of multimedia, such as web pages, educational software, hypertext fiction, or computer games, is recommended.
