      *********** Extreme Program Now Available *************
      *********** Extreme Markup Languages 2005 ************

The program for Extreme Markup Languages 2005, is now
     available at: http://www.extrememarkup.com

EXTREME MARKUP LANGUAGES: Devoted to the theory and practice of
     markup languages from industrial, academic, and other points of view.
     It differs from other conferences partly in its unapologetic emphasis
     on technical subjects and problems on the frontiers of current
     practice, and partly in the participants it attracts. Extreme
     typically has an unusually high concentration of markup theorists,
     computer scientists, linguists, taxonomists, publishers,
     lexicographers, typographers, software developers, librarians, and
     other people you want to spend time with - also anarchists,
     curmudgeons, and deep thinkers - and a lower than average
     concentration of managers in need of a clue.

Papers at Extreme this year discuss: new tools, markup theory, RDF,
     XML Schemas and schema processing, modeling XML documents, Topic
     Maps, TEI, DITA, Web Services, Architecture of documents and
     XML processing applications, XSLT and XQuery.

Pre-conference tutorials are described at:
    Tutorial topics include: Web services (one based on SOAP & WSDL and
    based on REST), UNICODE, Processing XML with Prolog, the Data Format
    Description Language (DFDL, called "daffodil") standard, and XML
    design using W3C XML Schema.

         From: Licia Landi <licialandi_at_yahoo.it>
         Subject: European conference at the University of Cambridge, UK
European perspectives on the teaching and the learning of the Latin
A conference held from 22-24 July 2005
at the University of Cambridge, UK
The conference is jointly organized by:
Bob Lister (University of Cambridge, UK)
Licia Landi, SSIS Veneto, (University of Verona, Italy)
Per Rasmussen (University of Copenhagen, Denmark)
Throughout Europe classicists are having to reinvent themselves
and their subject in order to help preserve the place of the classical
languages in the curriculum. The time available to study Latin
in schools is being eroded; students' priorities and interests are
changing; the wide-spread use of computers is creating new
teaching and learning environments. The aim of this conference
is to identify common issues facing Latin teachers in schools and
universities and share possible solutions, particularly those making
use of new technologies.
The conference has three main strands:
1. A contemporary subject for the contemporary world (curriculum)
What do learners in the 21st century want out of education?
What does Latin offer them in terms of skills and knowledge?
What arguments do we use to justify the place of Latin in the modern
To what extent does the educational, political and social context
affect the case for Latin in different countries?
What is the public perception of Latin among learners, employers,
colleagues from other disciplines?
2. Modern courses for the modern curriculum (pedagogy)
What are the principles underlying modern Latin courses?
What are their teaching and learning objectives?
How do they approach the teaching of syntax, accidence and
To what extent should Latin courses incorporate aspects of cultural
and historical context?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of grammar-based and
story-based courses? Do older learners require 'older' courses?
3. New technologies, new pedagogies (ICT)
What electronic resources are available for teaching Latin language
and literature?
How can we exploit easily available software (such as Microsoft
PowerPoint) in the classroom?
To what extent can new technologies enhance teaching and
learning, and create new ways of teaching and learning?
How do we integrate new technologies into teaching programmes?
Will new technologies transform distance learning?

topics within the three areas of interest: Language and Computation,
Language and Logic, and Logic and Computation.
Previous summer schools have been highly successful, attracting up to

an important meeting place and forum for discussion for students and
researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic,
Language and Information.
The ESSLLI 2006 Program Committee invites proposals for
foundational, introductory, and advanced courses, and for workshops
for the 18th annual Summer School on a wide range of timely topics
that have demonstrated their relevance in the following fields:
     - Logic and Language
     - Logic and Computation
     - Language and Computation
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: Proposals should be submitted through a web form
available at http://www.folli.org/submission.php
