The Body and the Mask in Ancient Theatre Space:=20
Perceptions, Coincidences and Diversions

2-day interdisciplinary conference May 5th & 6th 2007

Handa Nô Studio, Royal Holloway University, Egham
and King's College, London (Strand Campus)

This symposium, organised by the AHRC-funded
project "The Body and Mask in Ancient Theatre
Space," will explore contemporary approaches to
the world of ancient masked performance. Members
of the research team will present the fruits of
their latest research using advanced
3-dimensional (3D) visualisation technologies to
bring together ancient mask and performing body
in virtually-realised ancient spaces. A central
focus will be the project’s collaboration with
the distinguished Japanese Nô performer Matsui
Akira, who will discuss his work with the project
and give a live workshop/demonstration as part of the conference.

Professor Richard Beacham, who heads the project,
will speak about the aims of the project. Other
members of the team will present aspects of the
project's current work including Dr. Richard
Williams on 3D modelling of mask artefacts; Dr.
Margaret Coldiron on Cross-Cultural Connections,
Confluences and Contradictions in Masked
Performance, and Martin Blazeby on "The Virtual
Stage" and Drew Baker on “Paradata and Pipelines:
Getting the Virtual Actor onto the Virtual Stage."

Other speakers will include the
internationally-renowned Greek mask-maker and
designer Thanos Vovolis on “The Acoustic Mask in
Greek Tragedy,” Professor J. Michael Walton on
“Writing for the Mask,” and Professor Jonah Salz
of Ryukoku University (Kyoto) on “The Nô Actor,
His Mask and the Cinematic Use of Stage Space.”

The conference will begin at 10 am on Saturday, 5
May at the Handa Nô Studio on the campus of Royal
Holloway and will continue on Sunday 6 May in
Lecture Theatre 2C on the Strand Campus of King’s College, London.

Registration for the full conference costs £75
per person or £25 for students. The fee includes
all conference events and materials, refreshments
and lunch on both days and the workshop
demonstration by Akira Matsui. The fee for one
day is £50. The workshop/demonstration by Akira
Matsui will be open to the public and tickets for this event alone are £5.

Those wishing to attend the conference or the
workshop/demonstration should contact the
organizer: Dr. Margaret Coldiron, email:
A limited number of subsidized internships are
still available for students who wish to attend
the conference; those who are interested should
contact the conference organiser as soon as possible.

Research Areas - Call for Papers and Participation


Eighteenth International ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia (HT 07).

*** Hypertext, The Web, and Beyond: Five Autonomous Programmes, One
Unified Conference ***

Dates: September, 10 =AD 12, 2007
Location: Manchester, UK
Conference Website: http://www.ht07.org/
RSS News Feed: http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/news/atom.xml

Hypertext and hypermedia involve a diverse range of technologies that
support structured knowledge. The Eighteenth International ACM
Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia is operating under the banner
"Five Autonomous Programmes, One Unified Conference" to reflect that
although there is a wide range of research areas within the community,
all have a common interest in hypertext and hypermedia. Hypertext 2007
will therefore have the following five autonomous programmes each with
its own programme chair and committee, with the aim of bringing together
a vast range of people and interests to a single venue.

- Hypertext Models and Theory (http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/htmodel.php):
Scholarly, Structural, Dynamic and Adaptive Models and Theory of Hypertext.
Chair: Paul De Bra (Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands)

- Practical Hypertext (http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/practicalht.php):
Applications of hypertext including The Web, Semantic Web, Web
Engineering, and Web Design.
Chairs: Helen Ashman (The University of Nottingham, UK), Alexandra
Cristea (The University of Warwick, UK)

- Hypertext and Society (http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/htsociety.php):
The effect of hypertext on Developing Regions, Social Tagging and
Annotation, Blogs, and eLearning.
Chairs: Hugh C Davis (University of Southampton, UK), Dave Millard
(University of Southampton, UK)

- Hypertext and the Person (http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/htperson.php):
Human Centred hypertext including Browsers and Interfaces, Web
Accessibility, Usability, Evaluation and Observational Studies.
Chair: Vicki Hanson (IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, USA)

- Hypertext, Culture, and Communication
Art, Literature, Philosophy, and the hypertext tools to support them.
Chair: Mark Bernstein (Eastgate Systems, USA)

In addition to the autonomous programmes, we will also be hosting:
- Hypertext Reading Room
(http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/hypertexts.php) - Sponsored by Eastgate:
This allows participants to submit hypertext systems to the conference
in order for others within the community to gain hands on experience in
using the system.
Chairs: Jamie Blustein (Dalhousie University, USA), Rosemary Simpson
(Brown University, USA)

- Posters & Demonstrations (http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/posters.php):
Provides a great way to test new ideas, generate interest in a research
area, or describe useful or interesting work that is not substantial
enough for a full paper presentation.
Chair:Jessica Rubart (Arvato Direct Services, Germany)

- Student Research Competition
(http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/research.php) - Sponsored by the ACM
and Microsoft:
Provides students the opportunity to participate in an ACM conference
and get visibility for their research (including Arts / Humanities) by
displaying a poster and making a brief presentation to a panel of judges.
Chair: Mark Truran (University of Teesside, UK)

- Birds Of A Feather (http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/bof.php):
A community discussion forum where people with similar interests can
flock together and discuss their research.
Chair: Jim Whitehead (University of California, Santa Cruz, USA)

- Carole Goble (School of Computer Science - University of Manchester, UK)
- Wendy Hall (Computer Science - University of Southampton, UK)

Humanities Honour Scheme
In order to support and continue with the interdisciplinary aspect of
the Hypertext conferences, the "Humanities Honour Sceme" is introduced.
With this scheme we would like to ensure that attendees from Humanities
get as much discounts as Computer Scientists.

Creche - Sponsored by Hoppers
Hypertext 2007 will be able to provide free creche services to delegates
with small children. The creche can have child carers for children aged
6 months and above.
