This is an annual event, and great fun to attend.

On March 22 and 23, the Brown University Literary Arts Program will
present E-Fest 2006, a celebration of new digital literary art. There
will be showbizz-style performances of new work each night, starting
promptly at 8 p.m., in the McCormack Family Theater at 70 Brown St.
(entrance off Fones Alley, across from the Literary Arts building),
and symposia all day Thursday in the McKinney Conference Room of the
Watson Institute for International Studies, 111 Thayer St. Among the
literary hypermedia artists performing are Stuart Moulthrop, Judd
Morrissey, Aya Karpinska, Rob Kendall, Scott Rettberg, Nick Montfort,

                    Symposium on Digital Semantic Content across Cultures
                                  C2RMF, le Louvre, Paris, France
                                       4-5 May, 2006

Symposium Overview

The objective of the seminar is to discuss the digitalization, archiving,
and retrieval of our cultural heritage in all its forms, to deal with the
development of methods of compilation and indexation, and to present, in
the form of illustrative examples, cultural and recreational services
available to citizens (and consumers) including access to contents in
different languages from foreign cultures.

The symposium is intended for researchers, practioners, and students on
culture domains, museums, archives, libraries, and information and
communication technologies (ICT). In particular, research, applications,
and directions for future co-operation between French and Finnish cultural
organizations, research groups, and companies in the field of cultural
content and ICT will be discussed.


The symposium programme is available at the following address:

Registration is free, but seats are limited and will be allocated on a

July 3-7, 2006, ISEP - Porto, Portugal

The Summer School will be held at Porto, Portugal, jointly organized by
the Polytechnic School of Engineering of Porto (ISEP) and the Faculty of
Engineering, Porto University (FEUP).
Following last year experience, this year's edition also includes a
WORKSHOP SESSION providing a discussion forum where the participants can
obtain peer guidance for their projects.

• Carlos Soares (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Economy, University of
Porto, Portugal)
• Christopher Bishop (Professor, Assistant Director, Microsoft Research,
Cambridge, U.K.)
• Danilo Mandic (Senior Lecturer, Department of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering, Imperial College, U.K.)
• Fernando Sereno (Adjunct Professor, School of Education, Porto
Polythecnic Institute, Portugal)
• Joaquim Marques de Sá (Associate Professor, Dept. Electr. and Comp.
Engineering, Fac. of Engineering, University of Porto, Portugal)
• Luís Alexandre (Assistant Professor, Beira Interior University,
• Mark Embrecht (Associate Professor, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute,
RPI Troy, New York, U.S.A.)
• Noelia Sánchez Maroño (Assistant Professor, Coruna University, Spain)
• Paulo Cortez (Assistant Professor, University of Minho, Portugal)
• Robert Legenstein (Assistant Professor, Institute for Theoretical
Computer Science, Graz University of Technology, Austria)
• Steve Gunn (Senior Lecturer, Dept. of Electronics and Computer Science,
University of Southampton, U.K.)

Neural networks (NN) have become a very important tool in classification
and regression tasks. The applications are nowadays abundant, e.g. in the
engineering, economy and biology areas. The Summer School on NN is
dedicated to explain relevant NN paradigms, namely multilayer perceptrons
(MLP), radial basis function networks (RBF) and support vector machines
(SVM) used for classification and regression tasks, illustrated with
applications to real data. Specific topics are also presented, namely
Spiking Neural Networks, Recurrent Neural Networks, Modular Neural
Networks and Data Mining using NN.
Classes include practical sessions with appropriate software tools. The
trainee has, therefore, the opportunity to apply the taught concepts and
become conversant with a broad range of NN topics and applications. A
special workshop session will provide a discussion forum where the
participants can obtain peer guidance for their projects. Official
language is English.

A preliminary programme and further information about the classes are
available at the school webpage (http://www.nn.isep.ipp.pt)
