It seemed like a very interesting offering and I was disappointed that I
could not attend the sessions. I did, however, manage to squeeze in one
of the Saturday workshops. I went to the one on the Dilbert Ethics Game
put on by an ethics officer from Lockheed Martin. It is our policy at
ArtsEdge to put up a report of staff conference attendance. When the
report on this workshop is ready and up on our site, I will notify the
list. Sorry it's not the entire meeting.

Subject: WORKSHOP: Computationally-Intensive Methods


Department of Statistics
University of Glasgow, UK
7-9 September 1998

Announcement and Call for Registration

In recent years techniques from disciplines such as computer science,
articficial intelligence and statistics have found their way into the
pages of journals such as the Journal of Quantitative Linguistics,
Literary and Linguistic Computing and Computers and the
Humanities. While this influx may bring more advanced methods of
analysis to the fields of quantitative linguistics, stylometry and
stylistics, the demands upon researchers to understand and use these
new techniques are great. Familiarity with the appropriate software
and the ear of a sympathetic expert are pre-requisites without which
the technique may seem out of reach to the average researcher. The
Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute and the
Department of Statistics of the University of Glasgow are hence
supporting this practical workshop in Computationally-Intensive
Methods in Quantitative Linguistics.

Subject: Conference Announcement: TALC 98

*****Call for registration: TALC98********

The 3rd international conference on TEACHING AND LANGUAGE CORPORA
will be held at Keble College, Oxford between 24 and 27 July 1998.

The use of large computer-held corpora of real language, no longer
novel in linguistic research, is increasingly a focus of attention for
language teachers. Experiments in data driven learning and
corpus-based methods are beginning to bear fruit in a wide range of
language teaching environments. This international conference will
bring together practitioners and theorists with a common interest in
the usability of corpus data for such purposes as:
* language teaching and learning
* student-centred learning and investigation
* cross-linguistic comparison
* cultural and historical studies

Subject: new media conference

Willard, I pass along the following conference announcement for
"Creativity and Consumption: New Media Arts in Advanced Technology
Culture" for the those who are interested. Feel free to clip it if it
looks too long. Apologies to those who have already seen it.

But I also forward this to provoke some conversation on the relationship
between the kinds of activities represented by this conference and
humanities computing, along the lines you delineate that field (or
"discipline") in your essay. I see surprisingly little discussion of
creative work in the new media/digital arts on Humanist (or similar
venues, such as H-CLC). Surely we have a great deal in common with the
audience for this conference, as well as artists of all sorts working in
the medium -- not the least of that being a certain DIY (do it yourself)
sensibility necessitated by the consumer-driven R&D paradigms of
commerical industry. Why not cultivate such commonalities, perhaps
starting by bringing digital artists to venues such as ACH/ALLC?

Yours, Matt

Eleventh European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
August 9-20, 1999, Utrecht, The Netherlands


The main focus of the European Summer Schools in Logic, Language and
Information is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation.
Foundational, introductory and advanced courses together with workshops
cover a wide variety of topics within six areas of interest: Logic,
Computation, Language, Logic and Computation, Computation and Language,
Language and Logic. Previous summer schools have been highly successful,
attracting around 500 students from Europe and elsewhere. The school has
developed into an important meeting place and forum for discussion for
students and researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of
Logic, Language and Information. ESSLLI-99 is organized under the auspices
of the European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI).
