SUBJECT: CaSTA 2006 paper deadline now April 7, 2006

    The deadline for submitting papers for review to the 2006
Canadian Symposium on Text Analysis (CaSTA) conference has been
extended to April 7, 2006. CaSTA 2006 will be held at the
University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, and promises to be
an exciting event with five invited speakers, four pre-conference
workshops and interesting papers discussing the interdisciplinary
nature of text analysis research.

If you have not already done so, we encourage you to submit
a paper on one of the following (or related) areas:
     .Text analysis from a Humanities Computing perspective
     .Interface Design and usability issues
     .Applying Computer Science research to textual questions
The CaSTA Program Committee invites submissions that focus on the
ways in which researchers mine, manipulate and use electronic texts,
where "texts" are understood in a broad sense to extend to and
include multimedia.

The complete call for papers and submission guidelines are at
Co-sponsors include the Social Sciences and Humanities Research
Council of Canada, the Society for Digital Humanities and the
Association for Computing Machinery (in cooperation).

     It would be much appreciated if you could forward this message
on to others you think might be interested in submitting a paper
to CaSTA 2006.

In the new area of digitalized information, researchers from the
humanities face a new problem: semantic data organisation. In contrast
with the data processed by natural sciences, the material in most
fields of humanities is mostly unstructured. The structuring of such
data is a complex problem that can be solved only by formal models and
languages from computer science. However the application of formal
models from formal sciences (especially computing) is itself a
scientific problem as humanists have their own scientific culture not
only in the argumentation and meta-theories but also in their way of
communication. With the development of the Semantic Web the
?ontology?-concept became an important ?key? for data-structuring. Some
ontologies were developed also in the Humanities, but there is still no
overview of what exists, which standards are used and how well the
current ontologies meet the users requirements.
