Subject: ALLC/ACH 2002: Registration now open
University of Tuebingen
24-28 July 2002
The 2002 Joint International Conference of the Association for Literary
and Linguistic Computing and the Association for Compters and the
Humanities takes place from July 24-28 at the University of Tuebingen
The Annual Joint Conference of the ALLC and ACH is the most widely
attented international event in the field. It is the major showcase
for projects combining humanities research with cutting-edge technology,
providing a wide forum for paper presentations, panel discussions,
project reports and software demonstrations.
The theme for the 2002 conference is "New Directions in Humanities
Computing". It will feature plenary addresses by two leading scholars:
Hans-Walter Gabler of the University of Munich, and Roy Wisbey, Professor
emeritus of King's College London and co-founder of ALLC.
Tbingen University has a long-standing tradition of interdisciplinary
work, which includes combining humanities and technology: in 1623,
Wilhelm Schickard, Professor of Oriental Languages and later of Astronomy,
invented the first calculating machine. In 1966, Tbingen was the first
German university to create an extra academic post for humanities
computing at its computing centre.
Tbingen is a quaint medieval town located in an attractive countryside.
Two full day and two half day excursions give the opportunity for
participants to get in contact with each other while exploring
highlights of south-western Germany's cultural heritage and enjoying
its picturesque countryside.
Registration is now open. A list of accepted papers and a provisional
summary timetable are available at the conference website; a list of
poster sessions and the full program will be announced soon. You can
