ASSOCIATION FOR HISTORY AND COMPUTING
6TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
ODENSE, DENMARK, AUGUST 28-30, 1991


The Association for History and Computing is an international
organisation which aims to promote and develop interest in the use of
computers in all types of historical study at every level, in both
teaching and research.

The 6th international conference of the AHC in 1991 will be held in
Odense, Denmark, with the Danish Data Archives as the organizing
institution. The previous conferences were held in London twice, in
Cologne, Bordeaux, and Montpellier.


Themes

A number of workshops on methodological questions will be held in the
spring of 1991. The topics of the workshops include text encoding,
model solutions for historical problems, high-tech history in the
East and West, and image processing. The participants of these
workshops will present their results with a view to further
discussion in workshop sessions at the conference.

It would be natural, as the conference takes place in Scandinavia,
that demographic studies and large data collections should be central
issues.

And, as has become a tradition at the previous conferences, we
expect to see and hear presentations of what is happening in the
large field of history and computing. Among the expected topics are:

Standardization and exchange of machine readable data in the
historical disciplines
Data analysis and presentation
Event history analysis
Text analysis
Simulation and modelling
Computer-aided teaching
Social and economic history
Quantitative methods

Other activities at the conference

The General Assembly of the association will take place during the
conference.
Furthermore, the numerous special working groups of the AHC will,
of course, take this opportunity to get together and continue their
activities. Among the working groups are some dealing with topics
such as the intellectual property of source data banks, archiving and
the exchange of data.


Call for papers

Papers are invited on all aspects of computing in history, on
substantial subjects as well as on methodological questions.
Proposals for papers or demonstrations should be sent to H. J.
Marker, Danish Data Archives, Munkebjergv{nget 48, DK-5230 Odense M,
Denmark before April 15, 1991.

Proceedings of the conference

Papers presented at the Odense conference and given to us in machine
readable form (WordPerfect or ASCII) will be collected and published
after the conference.


Place

The conference will be held at the congress center Hotel H.C.
Andersen, Claus Bergs Gade 7, DK-5000 Odense.

Hotel accommodation will be provided by Odense Kongress Bureau, and
on the registration form you will find the prices for single bedrooms
in three categories. It goes without saying that if you want a double
bedroom, this can be arranged by the bureau.

Odense lies on the island of Funen, which is known for its lovely
countryside and many castles and manor houses. On the second day of
the conference we have arranged a guided tour to start at 3 p.m. The
trip will take us across southern Funen and the island of Taasinge.
On the way we will pay a visit to Egeskov Castle, which was built on
a complex construction of rammed down oak piles and is rising
directly from a lake. It was built in 1550 by the Lord High
Constable, Frands Brockenhuus.

Registration Fees

The conference fee, which includes conference activities, reception,
lunch and coffee on the 3 days of the conference is DKK 900, which
must be paid with a cheque, drawn on a Danish bank with the return of
the registration form before June 4, 1991 to Odense Kongres Bureau,
