>
> *     October 1st, 2004: An electronic submission form will be made
> available at the conference website.
>
> *     November 8th, 2004: Deadline for the submission of proposals for

> I. The ACH/ALLC Conference
>
> The joint conference of the Association for Computers and the
> Humanities
> (ACH) and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC)
> is the oldest established meeting of scholars working at the
> intersection of advanced information technologies and the humanities,
> annually attracting a distinguished international community at the
> forefront of their fields.
>
> Recent years have seen enormous advances in information technologies,
> and a corresponding growth in the use of information technology
> resources for research and teaching in the humanities. How exactly are
> these developments changing the ways in which humanities scholars work?
> What are the fields of humanities scholarship that are most affected by
> the use of computers and computation? What new and distinct
> methodologies is information technology bringing to the humanities, and
> how are these methodologies being introduced and applied? How do we
> expect methodologies, and the role of the humanities scholar, to change
> in the future as a result of the impact of information technology? How
> are information technology-related developments in one discipline
> affecting or likely to affect those in others?
>
> What are the implications of multilingualism and multiculturalism to
> humanities computing? What is the role of information technology
> technologies in establishing multilingualism? What are the meanings and
> implications of these developments for languages, communities, genders
> and cultures, and humanities research? What is the role of individual
> scientific and educational tasks, joint projects, or educational and
> electronic library resources? How can humanities computing help in the
> challenge to preserve individual cultures in a multicultural
> environment? What is the role of humanities computing in the
> preservation and creation of a multilingual, multicultural heritage?
>
> We believe that responding to these new challenges will also have a
> fertilizing effect on humanities computing as a whole by opening up new
> ways and methodologies to enhance the use of computers and computation
> in a wide range of humanities disciplines. Now is the time to survey
> and
> assess the impact humanities computing has had and is likely to have on
> humanities scholarship in a multilingual, multicultural world.
>
>
>
>
> II. Associated Organizations
>
> ACH and ALLC are continuing to develop the associated organizations
> initiative, which enables professional organizations with a remit
> similar to that of ALLC and ACH to present their own panel sessions
> within the conference.
>
> We welcome proposals from such organizations for the 2005 conference,
> especially in areas of computing in the humanities which have not been
> represented, or have been poorly represented, at previous ACH/ALLC
> conferences (e.g., linguistics, libraries, museums, history and
> archival
> fields, to mention a few).
>
> We encourage representatives from professional organizations to
> consider
> submitting a proposal under this initiative on topics they think might
> be relevant to the ACH/ALLC conference audience.
>
> Such proposals will undergo a review process and should be submitted
> directly to the conference programme chair, Alejandro Bia, no later
> than
> the date stated as the deadline for all types of proposals (see
> important dates on top of this document).
>
> For more information please contact the conference programme chair,
> Alejandro Bia, [log in to unmask]
>
>
>
>
> III. Submission topics
>
> ACH/ALLC 2005 invites submissions of abstracts of between 750 and 1500
> words on any aspect of humanities computing, broadly defined to
> encompass the common ground between information technology and problems
> in humanities research and teaching.
>
> As always, we welcome submissions in any area of the humanities,
> particularly interdisciplinary work. We especially encourage
> submissions
> on the current state of the art in humanities computing, and on recent
> new developments and expected future developments in the field.
>
> Suitable subjects for proposals might focus on:
>
> *     traditional applications of computing in the humanities, including
> (but not limited to) text encoding, hypertext, text corpora,
> computational lexicography, natural language processing, linguistics,
> translation studies, literary studies, text analysis, edition philology
> and statistical models;
>
> *     computational models and applications related to multilingualism and
> multicultural issues;
>
> *     the application of information technology to issues related to
> minority, indigenous and rare languages;
>
> *     emerging digitization efforts: new best practices, experiences,
> recommendations, training;
>
> *     humanities teaching;
>
> *     the application of information technology to cultural and historical
> studies (including archaeology and musicology);
>
> *     new approaches to research in humanities disciplines using digital
> resources dependent on images, audio, or video;
>
> *     the application to humanities data of techniques developed in such
> fields as information science and the physical sciences and
> engineering;
>
>
> *     pedagogical applications of new media within the humanities;
>
> *     applications of technology in second language acquisition;
>
> *     commercial applications of humanities computing, e.g. web technology,
> natural language interfaces, archival organization and accessibility;
>
> *     applications in the digital arts, especially projects and
> installations that feature technical advances of potential interest to
> humanities scholars;
>
> *     information design in the humanities, including visualization,
> simulation, and modelling;
>
> *     thoughtful considerations of the cultural impact of computing and new
> media;
>
> *     theoretical or speculative treatments of new media;
>
> *     the institutional role of new media within the contemporary academy,
> including curriculum development and collegial support for activities
> in
> these fields;
>
> *     the broader social role of humanities computing and the resources it
> develops.
>
> *     the institutional role of humanities computing and new media within
> the contemporary academy, including curriculum development and
> collegial
> support for activities in these fields.
>
>
> The range of topics covered by humanities computing can also be
> consulted in the journal of the associations: Literary and Linguistic
> Computing  <http://www3.oup.co.uk/litlin/> (LLC), Oxford University
> Press.
>
> See the important dates at the top of this document for the deadline
> for submitting paper, session and poster proposals to the Programme
> Committee. All submissions will be refereed.
>
> Proposals for (non-refereed, or vendor) demos and for pre-conference
> tutorials and workshops should be discussed directly with the local
> conference organizer as soon as possible. See below for full details on
> submitting proposals.
>
> For more information on the conference in general please visit the
> conference web site <http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/achallc2005/> .
>
>
>
>
> IV. Types of Proposals
>
> Proposals to the Programme Committee may be of three types: (1) papers,
> (2) poster presentations and/or software demonstrations, and
> (3) sessions  (either three-paper or panel sessions). The type of
> submission must be specified in the proposal.
>
> Papers and posters may be given in English, French, German, Italian,
> Spanish or Swedish.
>
>
>
> Papers
>
> Proposals for papers (750-1500 words) should describe original work:
> either completed research which has given rise to substantial results,
> or the development of significant new methodologies, or rigorous
> theoretical, speculative or critical discussions. Individual papers
> will
> be allocated 30 minutes for presentation, including questions.
>
> Proposals that concentrate on the development of new computing
> methodologies should make clear how the methodologies are applied to
> research and/or teaching in the humanities, and should include some
> critical assessment of the application of those methodologies in the
> humanities. Those that concentrate on a particular application in the
> humanities should cite traditional as well as computer-based approaches
> to the problem and should include some critical assessment of the
> computing methodologies used. All proposals should include conclusions
> and references to important sources. Those describing the creation or
> use of digital resources should follow these guidelines as far as
> possible.
>
>
>
> Poster Presentations and/or Software Demonstrations
>
> Poster presentations may include computer technology and project
> demonstrations,which we encourage. Hence the term poster/demo to refer
> to the different possible combinations of printed and computer based
> presentations. There should be no difference in quality between
> poster/demo presentations and papers, and the format for proposals is
> the same for both. The same academic standards should apply in both
> cases, but posters/demos may be a more suitable way of presenting
> late-breaking results, or significant work in progress, including
> pedagogical applications. Both will be submitted to the same refereeing
> process. The choice between the two modes of presentation (poster/demo
> or paper) should depend on the most effective and informative way of
> communicating the scientific content of the proposal.
>
> By definition, poster presentations are less formal and more
> interactive
> than a standard talk. Poster presenters have the opportunity to
> exchange
> ideas one-on-one with attendees and to discuss their work in detail
> with
> those most deeply interested in the same topic. Presenters will be
> provided with about two square meters of board space to display their
> work. They may also provide handouts with examples or more detailed
> information. Posters will remain on display throughout the conference,
> but there will also be a separate conference session dedicated to them,
> when presenters should be prepared to explain their work and answer
> questions. Additional times may also be assigned for software or
> project
> demonstrations.
>
> The poster sessions will build on the recent trend of showcasing some
> of
> the most important and innovative work being done in humanities
> computing.
>
>
>
> Poster Prize
>
> As an acknowledgement of the special contribution of the posters to the
> conference, the Programme Committee will award a prize for the best
> poster.
>
>
>
> Sessions
>
> Sessions (90 minutes) take the form of either:
>
> Three papers. The session organizer should submit a 500-word statement
> describing the session topic, include abstracts of 750-1500 words for
> each paper, and indicate that each author is willing to participate in
> the session;
>
> or
>
> A panel of four to six speakers. The panel organizer should submit an
> abstract of 750-1500 words describing the panel topic, how it will be
> organized, the names of all the speakers, and an indication that each
> speaker is willing to participate in the session.
>
> The deadline for session proposals is the same as for proposals for
> papers.
>
>
>
>
> V. Format of the Proposals
>
> All proposals must be submitted electronically using the on-line
> submission form found at the conference website.
>
> Please pay particular attention to the information that is required
> regarding each proposal. Submissions that do not contain the required
> information will be returned to the authors, and may not be considered
> at all if they are received close to the deadline.
