    Digitisation for Cultural Heritage Professionals
    HATII, University of Glasgow
    3-8 July 2000
    Following the great success of the 1998 and 1999 Glasgow Digitisation
    Summer Schools, the Humanities Advanced Technology and Information
    Institute (HATII) is pleased to announce the third annual international
    Digitisation Summer School, 3-8 July 2000.

    This course, designed for archive, library and museum professionals,
    delivers skills, principles, and best practice in the digitisation of
    primary textual and images resources with strong emphasis on interactive
    seminars and practical exercises. With expert guidance, you will examine
    the advantages of developing digital collections of heritage materials and
    investigate issues involved in creating, curating, and managing access to
    such collections.

    The lectures will be supplemented by seminars and practical exercises. In
    these, participants will apply the practical experience of digitisation
    across a range of printed, image (photographic or slide), manuscript, or
    map material. The focus will be on working with primary source material.
    The course will visit the Glasgow University Library Special Collections
    and the University Archives. The detailed programme is available at the
    HATII website--http://www.hatii.arts.gla.ac.uk/DigiSS00/

    International Conference on

    Conference Theme:
    Cultural Collisions and Creative Interferences in the Global Village

    12-15 July 2000, Perth, Australia

    Computer-mediated communication networks, such as the Internet and the
    World Wide Web, promise to realise the utopian vision of an electronic
    global village. But efforts to diffuse CMC technologies globally, especially
    in Asia and among indigenous peoples in Africa, Australia and the United
    States, have demonstrated that CMC technologies are neither culturally
    neutral nor communicatively transparent. Rather, diverse cultural attitudes
    towards technology and communication - those embedded in current CMC
    technologies, and those shaping the beliefs and behaviours of potential
    users - often collide.

    This biennial conference series aims to provide an international forum for
    the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research on how diverse
    cultural attitudes shape the implementation and use of information and
    communication technologies. The first conference in the series was held in
    London in 1998. For an overview of the themes and presentations of
    CATaC'98 and links to the papers, see

    Original full papers (especially those which connect theoretical frameworks
    with specific examples of cultural values, practices, etc.) and short papers
    (e.g. describing current research projects and preliminary results) are
    invited. Papers should articulate the connections between specific cultural
    values as well as current and/or possible future communicative practices
    involving information and communication technologies. We seek papers which,
    taken together, will help readers, researchers, and practitioners of
    computer-mediated communication - especially in the service of "electronic
    democracy" - better understand the role of diverse cultural attitudes as
    hindering and/or furthering the implementation of global computer
    communications systems.

    Topics of particular interested include but are not limited to:

    - Communicative attitudes and practices in diverse industrialised countries.
    - Communicative attitudes and practices in industrialising countries and
    marginalised communities.
    - Impact of new communication technologies on local and indigenous languages
    and cultures.
    - Politics of the electronic global village in democratising or preserving
    - East/West cultural attitudes and communicative practices.
    - Role of gender in cultural expectations regarding appropriate
    communicative behaviours.
    - Ethical issues related to new technologies, and their impact on culture
    and communication behaviours.
    - Legal implications of communication and technology.

    > December 8-10, 2000
    > Classical, Medieval, and Byzantine scholars have long relied on
    > academic symposia and printed media to disseminate the fruits of
    > their research. In the last two decades, the Internet and the World
    > Wide Web have made new forms of publication possible. Electronic
    > journals have been founded, such as the Bryn Mawr Classical Review
    > and the Medieval Review. Academic websites, including De Imperatori-
    > bus Romanis, Perseus, Diotima, Electronic Antiquity, ORB, Lacus
    > Curtius, the Stoa, and the Medieval Sourcebook, provide wide audienc-
    > es with primary materials, scholarly studies, and access to other
    > resources. Search engines like Argos have been developed to help
    > navigate the rapidly multiplying opportunities of this new medium.
    > In spite of these advances, the Internet is just beginning to fulfill
    > its potential as a scholarly medium. This conference will address
    > various ways in which the World Wide Web is being, and can be, devel-
    > oped, in the fields of Classical, Medieval, and Byzantine studies.
    > Participants are encouraged to use their imaginations in considering
    > different ways in which the WEB can help to promote ancient and
    > medieval studies. Presentations not only of a theoretical nature, but
    > also of a practical, "how-to", nature are welcome. Just some of the
    > topics on which abstracts are invited include the following:
    > 1. Electronic publication. Case studies discussing the launching and
    > administration of existing e-journals.
    > 2. Reference WEB sites. Case studies of the creation of WEB store-
    > houses of information, which assemble, sometimes locally and some-
    > times from other WEB sites, reference material (such as texts and
    > translations) that in the past had been available only in printed
    > form, if at all.
    > 3. Scholarly WEB sites. Case studies of the means by which scholarly
    > research has been made accessible via the internet. Issues such as
    > the nature of the scholarly topic, database construction, the means
    > by which data have been converted to web-accessible form, and user
    > interactivity might be discussed.
    > 4. Acceptability. In spite of the existence of several e-publica-
    > tions, the submission level remains, in general, low. How can the
    > status of electronic publication in the profession be increased to
    > the point where it stands more on a par with traditional print
    > publication? How should e-publications be evaluated in the context of
    > tenure and promotion?
    > 5. Standards. What kinds of standards have been, and should be,
    > adopted for electronic publishing and for the creation of scholarly
    > web sites?
    > 6. Coordination. What are some practical means (such as the creation
    > of clearing-house sites) of coordinating web-based research activi-
    > ties, and reducing duplication of effort?
    > 7. Peer review of web resources. What is the most effective manner
    > for validating and endorsing web publications and web sites?
    > 8. Promotion. How might the many scholarly facilities and resources
    > of the Internet become known to the audiences that can benefit from
    > them?
    > 9. Communication. Discussions of the ways in which the web has been,
    > and can be, used to further scholarly discussion and interaction, as
    > by means of discussion lists.
    > 10. Research: Navigation and Search Engines. Discussions of "how to
    > find" scholarly resources on the WEB, and how they can best be
    > applied to scholarly research.
    > 11. Technology. Just what is the state of current WEB technology as
    > applied to scholarly publication and research? What are its limita-
    > tions? How can it be improved? What kinds of purely *technical*
    > standards, if any, should be applied to the dissemination of scholar-
    > ly resources on the WEB?
    > 12. Authoring: What kinds of authoring tools are available to assist
    > academics in the creation of resources that take full advantage of
    > HTML resources?
    > 13. Education. How can the scholarly community be educated as to how
    > to use WEB resources effectively and efficiently?
    > 14. Access. How can scholarly electronic resources be packaged so as
    > to be accessible to non-specialist audiences, such as undergraduates,
    > or the general public?
    > Those interested in participating should send a 300-word abstract of
    > a proposed 20-minute presentation to Ralph Mathisen, Program Chair,
