The XVIth Conference of the international AHC aims to bring together
specialists from three broad streams:
- Scholars using computers in historical and related studies (history
of art, archaeology, literary studies, etc.)
- Information and computing scientists working in the domain of
cultural heritage and the humanities
- Professionals working in cultural heritage institutes (archives,
libraries, museums) who use ICT to preserve and give access to their

The subject matter of the conference is primarily oriented at
methodological issues and not restricted to one particular domain within
history and the humanities. Preferably, sessions will consist of a mix
of these three interest groups and fields. There will be numerous cross
links between the streams.

Call for Presentations

CaSTA 2005 – Canadian Symposium on Text Analysis
University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
October 3-7, 2005

The fourth annual CaSTA Symposium will be held at
the University of Alberta October 3rd through 7th, 2005. The event will:

* bring together scholars from diverse
disciplines, whose work shares common approaches
in text encoding, knowledge management, and
digital approaches to scholarly communication
* be a forum for discussion of best practices,
and sharing of insights, tools and approaches in these fields
* provide hands-on, practical workshop and
discussion activities for scholars considering or
underway with projects of this type

To achieve these goals, we are running a series
of discipline-specific workshops, seminars, and
forums during the week. Invited experts will
conduct workshops, lead seminars, and provide
personal consultation on scholarly projects which
use text encoding and text transformation technologies.

Outline of Each Day's Activities

Workshop 08:30 - 10:00
  break 10:00 - 10:30
Seminar 10:30 - 12:00
  lunch 12:00 - 1:30
Project Consultations 1:30 - 3:00
  break 3:00 - 3:30
Forum 3:30 - 5:00

This is a Call for Presentations for graduate
students working in one for these disciplines (or related areas):

* linguistics
* anthropology
* information science
* digital editing
* scholarly editions on the web

Suitable subjects for presentations include (but are not strictly limited to):

* text encoding, hypertext, text corpora, natural
language processing, linguistics, translation
studies, literary studies, text analysis, digital editions
* information design in the humanities, including
visualization, simulation, and modelling


The presentations may be in either one of these formats:

  A poster taking up no more than 6' x 4' (2m x 1.2m).

  A demonstration of a computer-based research
approach, software program, or website.

A scheduled block of time will allocated each day
for poster presentations; presenters will have an
opportunity to discuss their work with colleagues
and answer questions. The posters will remain on
display throughout the conference, if the
presenter wishes it. The software demonstrations
will also be scheduled for a specific time period
each day; the presenter will have about 15
minutes to make their presentation, with an
additional 10 minutes for questions and comment.

Submissions will be refereed.

Participating graduate students will have the
opportunity to sign up for workshops, symposia,
personal consultations and forums with invited experts from a number of fields.

How to submit a proposal

Prepare a short abstract (about 350 - 500 words)
which describes your research proposal. Please
make clear how your research uses or addresses
issues relating to text encoding, knowledge
management, or digital approaches in the humanities.

Please send your proposal to:


In addition to the abstract, please indicate your
technical requirements (if you are proposing a
software demonstration): are you bringing your
own computer (what is its make and operating
system?); do you wish us to provide a computer
(Macintosh, PC, or Unix? specific operating
system required? specific software required? what
version? CD-ROM or DVD player needed? audio? resolution requirements?)


The deadline for submissions is: Tuesday, July 12, 2005

We hope to be able to response to the accepted
applicants by: Thursday, July 28, 2005
