The EasyChair Submission Page is now open at:


The workshop ``Methods for Modalities'' (M4M) aims to bring together
researchers interested in developing algorithms, verification methods
and tools based on modal logics. Here the term ``modal logics'' is
conceived broadly, including temporal logic, description logic,
guarded fragments, conditional logic, temporal and hybrid logic, etc.

To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will feature a
number of invited talks by leading scientists, research presentations
aimed at highlighting new developments, and submissions of
system demonstrations.

We strongly encourage young researchers and students to submit papers
and posters, especially for experimental and prototypical software tools
which are related to modal logics.

         Subject: Philosophy of engineering - engineering and metaphysics

Dear all

This is a reminder that The Royal Academy of Engineering is holding
its next philosophy of engineering seminar, on engineering and
metaphysics, on Monday September 3rd at 2 for 2.30pm. The seminar
will explore a number of metaphysical issues concerning the nature of
engineering, and the application of philosophical metaphysics to
engineering practice. This should be a very interesting meeting
covering highly novel topics, with plenty of time for discussion.

The details of speakers and their talks are available on the flyer here:

         Subject: Program for Chicago Colloquium
on Digital Humanities and Computer Science

The program for the Second Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities
and Computer Science has now been set, and you can see it at http://
dhcs.northwestern.edu/index.html. The Colloquium will take place on
Sunday and Monday, October 21-22, 2007 at Northwestern University.
This is an event jointly sponsored by the Illinois Institute for
Technology, Northwestern University, and the University of Chicago.
Registration is free, and you are cordially invited to attend.

Information about logistics will appear shortly on the web site. You
may also contact the conference coordinator, Nathan Mead (n-

There still is room for poster sessions, and we will be delighted to
receive and review submissions on a rolling basis. Please send them
to dhcs-submissions_at_listhost.uchicago.edu.

The theme of this year's colloquium is "Exploring the scholarly query
potential of high quality text and image archives in a collaborative
environment." The presentations range widely across cultures and
technologies. There are digital surrogates of Mesopotamian cylinder
seals and of 3,000 clay statuettes from a Chinese Buddhist temple
that make you see things you could not easily see "in the flesh." How
to find readable and manipulable representations of the symbols that
appear in Isaac Newton's alchemical writings. How to explore the
"countless links" that are at the heart of the Orlando Project about
Women's Writing in the British Isles from the Beginnings to the
Present. How to make the history of North Carolina speak in different
ways when the print records (a massive work of late nineteenth
century scholarship) are translated into a digital medium.

A special session on Monday will explore the different ways in which
quite similar technologies of text mining support different goals in
legal, literary, and business analysis, and it will ask what these
different approaches can learn from each other.

The keynote speakers, Matt Kirschenbaum (The Remaking of Reading) and
Lew Lancaster (Beyond 2-D Text/Plan: The Chinese Buddhist in 3-D)
nicely define the range of topics. Ray Siemens will sum it all up.

I hope you will find this attractive enough to come.
