    2004 Digital Humanities / Humanities Computing Summer Institute
    University of Victoria
    June 25-30, 2004

    Dear Members of the Humanities Computing Community,

    With good news of sponsorship for this year's summer institute, those
    involved in the institute are very pleased to announce that we are able to
    offer several scholarships for 2004. The scholarships reduce greatly the
    cost of registration, to $225 (CDN) for faculty and staff and $150 for
    graduate students for the six days of the institute and the banquet.

    If you would like to be considered for one of these spots, please visit the
    institute's website (http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/institute/) and, after perusing
    the offerings, contact Ray Siemens (siemens@uvic.ca) by **May 14** with [1]
    a very brief bio-statement (which could include a link to a website), [2]
    an indication of which offering would be your first choice and (if that is
    unavailable) an alternate preference, and [3] a short paragraph outlining
    your current work, and how attending the institute would benefit that work.

    About the Institute

    The Digital Humanities / Humanities Computing Summer Institute provides an
    environment ideal to discuss, to learn about, and to advance skills in the
    new computing technologies, over a week of intensive coursework, seminar
    participation, and lectures. The institute is hosted by the University of
    Victoria's Faculty of Humanities and its Humanities Computing and Media
    Centre, and is co-sponsored by the University of Victoria, Acadia
    University, and Malaspina University-College. It is supported also by the
    Consortium for Computing in the Humanities / Consortium pour ordinateurs en
    sciences humaines, the Association for Computers and the Humanities, the
    Canadian Initiative on Digital Libraries, the Social Sciences and
    Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Image, Text, Sound and
    Technology Strategic Research Grant program, and others.

    For details, see the institute's website, at this URL:
    http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/institute/ .

    On behalf of all those involved in the institute, I encourage you to
    consider joining us, and I look forward to welcoming you this summer.

    With all best wishes,

       Ray Siemens
