Subject: Engelbart's Unfinished Revolution: A Symposium at Stanford University

[excerpted from <http://unrev.stanford.edu/introduction/introduction.html>]

Engelbart's Unfinished Revolution: A Symposium at Stanford University
December 9, 1998

Try to imagine "personal" computing without the following:
-The mouse and pointer cursor
-Display editing
-Outline processing
-Multiple remote online users of a networked processor
-"Linking" and in-file object addressing
-Multiple windows
-Hypermedia
-Context-sensitive help

These features, which we take for granted in 1998, were
unheard of before Doug Engelbart's inquiries into "Augmented
Human Intellect" led to a revolutionary vision of the computer,
a vision which was revealed to the computer world on
December 9, 1968 ...

On that day Doug Engelbart and a small team of researchers
from the Stanford Research Institute stunned the computing
world with an extraordinary demonstration at a San Francisco
computer conference. They debuted: the computer mouse,
graphical user interface, display editing and integrated text and
graphics, hyper-documents, and two-way video-conferencing
with shared workspaces. These concepts and technologies
were to become the cornerstones of modern interactive
computing

Stanford University Libraries and the Institute for the Future
will present a day-long, public symposium that will bring
together Engelbart and members of his historic team, along
with other computer visionaries, to consider the impact of
Engelbart's work on the last three decades of the computer
revolution, to explore the challenges facing us today, and to
speculate about the next three decades.

Subject: Classics Symposium at Oxford

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oxford ICT in Classics Conference
St Anne's College, July 19 and 20, 1999
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This two day residential course will be suitable for teachers of Classics
in schools or universities. The programme of events will include lectures
and workshops by:

Professor Greg Crane of Tufts University, Director of the Perseus Project
Dr Don Fowler of Jesus College Oxford,
Rob Latousek, chair of the American Classical League Committee on
Educational Computer Applications, president of Centaur Systems Ltd
Julian Morgan, Computer Coordinator for the Joint Association of Classical
Teachers Chris Stephens, Oxford University Computing Services

As we approach the 21st Century, it is essential that teachers of Classics
should understand what technologies are available and how to make active
use of them. Our aim is to show what can be done and how to do it in this
field. Workshops on authoring web pages and multimedia programs will be
given, as well as on how to use the internet as a research tool for
students and teachers.

Lectures will look at how schools and universities can make full use of
currently available resources. In particular we are delighted to have the
involvement of the Perseus Project Director, and we look forward to hearing
how the project will continue to move forward the presentation, research
and learning of Greek and Latin.

Delegates will receive all meals, including lunch and full college dinner.
A second night's stay at St Anne's can be added on at extra cost, if so
desired. There will be opportunities for delegates to purchase computing
software at discounted prices, as well as to visit the Yale University
Press stand.

The cost of the event will be 140 for a single room with washbasin (20
available), 150 each for two people sharing a double room with en suite
facilities (20 available), or 165 for a double room with en suite
facilities (25 available). Please book your place before February 20th by
writing to Julian Morgan, 81 High St, Pitsford, Northants, NN6 9AD (email
Julian@JPROGS.source.co.uk). Cheques should be made payable to "JACT
Computing Account".

We are grateful to have the support of Friends of Classics, JACT, Oxford
University Computing Services, St Anne's College and Yale University Press
in setting up this event.

Subject: Computer-related sessions at the 1998 MLA

From: John Lavagnino <John.Lavagnino@kcl.ac.uk>

Some Humanist readers may be attending the 1998 MLA convention in San
Francisco at the end of December. There are a number of talks on
humanities computing and related subjects at the MLA, and to help
those interested in finding them, the Association for Computers and
the Humanities has compiled a guide to these talks, based on the
convention program. It is available at:

From: Wilhelm Ott <Wilhelm.Ott@zdv.uni-tuebingen.de>
Subject: TEI-Workshop in Tuebingen

The Computing Center of the University of Tuebingen / Germany
offers a further TEI Workshop:

"Praxis der SGML-konformen Textauszeichnung
nach den Richtlinien der
Text Encoding Initiative (TEI)"

Tuebingen, 17. - 20. Februar 1999

This will be the 4th TEI workshop held at Tuebingen. It differs from the
previous ones in so far as it will focus not on the introduction into
TEI but on the training of encoding and markup according to the Guidelines
of the TEI.

The lectures given in German language by Michael Sperberg-McQueen PhD
(cmsmcq@uic.edu) and Dr. theol. Winfried Bader (bader@dbg.de) will be
accompanied by hands-on training in handling structured text.
