    >> From: Methods for Modalities <m4m@science.uva.nl>



    Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
    University of Amsterdam
    November 29-30, 2001

    DEADLINE: October 12, 2001

    The workshop Methods for Modalities (M4M) aims to bring together
    researchers interested in developing proof tools and reasoning methods for
    modal logic broadly conceived, including description logic, hybrid logics,
    feature logic, temporal logic, etc.

    To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will be centered
    around a number of long presentations by leading researchers; these
    presentations aim to provide both the general background and inside
    information in a number of key areas. To complement these, we are inviting
    submissions of short, focussed presentations aimed at highlighting new
    developments and applications, and submissions of system demonstrations.
    M4M-2 is the second installment of this bi-anual workshop series.

                                   * ALTERED PROGRAM *

    "Intellectual Property & Multimedia in the Digital Age"
    Monday September 24: New York Public Library

                   * Siva Vaidhyanathan and Jane White added to Program *

    The New York City NINCH COPYRIGHT TOWN MEETING will be held Monday
    September 24 (8:30am-5pm) at the New York Public Library (Fifth Avenue at
    42nd Street).

    Due to the turmoil induced by the attack on New York City last week, two of
    the advertised speakers will not be able to participate. However, we are
    very grateful that two new speakers have agreed to contribute to the program:

    * Siva Vaidhyanathan, cultural historian and media scholar at the
    University of Wisconsin-Madison, author of the new book "Copyrights and
    Copywrongs," is currently working on a book about Napster and the ways we
    regulate our information ecosystem.

    * Jane White, Director of the International Children's Digital Library at
    The Internet Archive, and formerly of ABC News, will speak about copyright
    issues faced by The Internet Moving Images Archive <www.archive.org/movies/>

    As before, the two keynote speakers, Professor Peter Jaszi (Washington
    College of Law, American University) and Linda Tadic (Manager of the
    Digital Library, Home Box Office) will explore issues arising for
    non-profit cultural institutions as they manage and use multimedia digital
    cultural material in an online environment. They will then each moderate a
    panel discussing issues from the points of view of owners and users of
    digital assets.

    Registration: A free box lunch will be available only for those 315 people
    who have registered for the meeting. Although registration has closed,
    there may be some limited seating available for others.

    The NINCH Copyright Town Meetings balance expert opinion and audience
    participation on the basics of copyright law, the implications of copyright
    online, recent changes in copyright law and practice, and practical issues
    related to the networking of cultural heritage materials. The program will
    include plenty of time for audience questions, comments and discussion. For
    information on all the NINCH 2001 Copyright Town meetings, see

    Two keynote speakers will address the issues of non-profits as
    rightsholders and as users of digital multimedia material. Professor Peter
    Jaszi (Washington College of Law, American University) will speak on
    "non-profits as rightsholders" while Linda Tadic (Manager of the Digital
    Library, Home Box Office) will address "non-profits as users."

    lobbyist on intellectual property issues as the world wrestled with the
    reform of IP law for the Internet
    age. Eisgrau also was a primary organizer and media spokesperson for the
