Subject: CFP -- CaSTA: The Inaugural Canadian Symposium on Text
The Inaugural Canadian Symposium on Text Analysis Research
Montreal, November 23rd, 2002
TAPoR (Text Analysis Portal for Research)
In 2001, a small group of Canadian researchers sought and
achieved the seemingly impossible -- an enhanced infrastructure for
computing in the humanities in Canada. With a approximately $6.8
million grant from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and
matching provincial and corporate funding, the group is in the
process of changing the face of humanities computing nationally
In conjunction with its fall meeting in Montreal on November 23rd,
the group is holding its first Symposium. Researchers, graduate
students and others in the academic community are invited to
participate and/or attend.
The Symposium will have two parts:
1.About 75% devoted to research presentations; the author of the
best submission will be invited to give the keynote address
2.About 25% devoted to a panel on TAPoR -- its Future.
Submissions are invited for on a panel on visions of the future.
What can and should TAPoR do? How should it serve the
humanities research community? What should TAPoR be in 5
years? 10 years?
To participate, please submit a 300-500 word abstract by October
25th to email@example.com. Authors will be notified within
one week of receipt.
