         Call for Papers, Special Session Proposals & Sponsorships

The joint ICNC'07-FSKD'07 will be held in Haikou, China. Haikou, the
capital city of Hainan Province, is a pleasant modern city with a number
of historical and cultural sights to see and to hold you for a few days
before heading off to Hainan's beautiful beaches and inland villages.
ICNC'07-FSKD'07 aims to provide an international forum for scientists
and researchers to present the state of the art of intelligent methods
inspired from nature, including biological, linguistic, ecological, and
physical systems, with applications to data mining, manufacturing,
design, reliability, and more. It is an exciting and emerging inter-
disciplinary area in which a wide range of techniques and methods are
being studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems.

MINI-WORKSHOP CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Text and Grid: Research Questions for the Humanities, Sciences and
Industry

http://www.allhands.org.uk/news/textgridws_call.cfm

Textual resources play a pivotal role not only in research, but also
in business. In 2003 alone, 300 Terabytes of textual data were
produced, without counting more dynamic texts like blogs, wikis,
websites, etc. Google, Microsoft and Yahoo are all working on
creating gigantic digital libraries for textual resources that would
both be more accessible and comprehensible than any other digital
library in history. Project partners in "Cultural Heritage Language
Technologies" like the Perseus Project promote the use of modern
computational and storage techniques to integrate tools and data for
research on and with texts in different formats. In the UK, the AHRC
E-Science Scoping Study expert seminars in textual studies,
linguistics and history have discussed the potential of Virtual
Organisation and Grid technologies for humanist textual analysis.

Innovations in Grids and other e-Science technologies can help
researchers deal with the new requirements stemming not only from the
growing size and number of digital corpora, but also from the
specific characteristics of digital text editing. Rationalisation and
improvement of the editing workflow, and mass text throughput
abilities lead to new research opportunities. For the first time, it
seems feasible to effectively support researchers building editions
encompassing text, images, and deep level annotations in XML, e.g. in
the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) format. With e-Science tools and
methods for computation and storage, many of the repetitive tasks
associated with text editing can be at least semi-automated. Citation
indices can be built as well as authority lists of people, places,
dictionary entries and organizations. Data Grid technologies make it
relatively easy to create new virtual corpora out of existing textual
resources. However, the new technologies also engender new
challenges. The protocols for publishing research need to be
adjusted; peer review and validation of scholarship need to be re- evaluated.

The workshop is targeted at people working on research or business
applications meeting the challenges of unstructured resources such as
texts for research and business computing. Details on the submission
process can be found on the All Hands website (www.allhands.org.uk).
Submissions are subject to a peer review process and will be
published in the conference proceedings. Informal enquiries about the
mini-workshop can be directed to Dr. Tobias Blanke
(tobias.blanke_at_kcl.ac.uk) or Dr. Stuart Dunn (stuart.dunn_at_kcl.ac.uk).

         Subject: e-Science Institute 'Theme' on A&H e-Science

The Arts and Humanities e-Science Theme, organized by AHeSSC and
hosted at the e-Science Institute in Edinburgh, aims to explore the
new challenges for research in the Arts and Humanities, and to define
the new research agenda that is made possible by e-Science
technology. It will encourage innovation and the pushing back of
intellectual boundaries, while seeking to be accessible to and
inclusive of those researchers who are not currently engaged in this
agenda. The Theme will consider the international context of UK
research, and will identify the strategic considerations for
researchers, students and funding agencies as this agenda is taken
forward.

The first phase of activities is a series of lectures in Edinburgh in
the spring and summer of 2007. Details of these are are now available
at http://www.ahessc.ac.uk/theme. The lectures are free and open to
all, but registration will be required. The lectures will also be
simultaneously webcast, and details on how to access these will
appear on the website shortly, along with information on registration
for those attending in person.

Please do not hesitate to contact AHeSSC for more information.
