            ASSOCIATION FOR COMPUTERS AND THE HUMANITIES
         ASSOCIATION FOR LITERARY AND LINGUISTIC COMPUTING
 
          1995 JOINT INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ACH-ALLC 95
 
                          JULY 11-15, 1995
          UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA
 
 
                          CALL FOR PAPERS
 
This conference--the major forum for literary, linguistic and
humanities computing--will highlight the development of new
computing methodologies for research and teaching in the humanities,
the development of significant new computer-based resources for
humanities research, especially focusing on the issues and problems
of networked access to materials, and the developing applications,
evaluation, and use of traditional scientific and computing
techniques in humanities disciplines.
 
 
TOPICS:  We welcome submissions on topics and applications focused
on the humanities disciplines, defined as broadly as possible:
languages and literature, history, philosophy, music, art,
linguistics, anthropology and archaeology, creative writing, and
cultural studies.  We are interested in receiving technical
proposals that focus on the cutting edge issues of the application
of scientific tools and approaches to humanities disciplines;
discipline-based proposals that focus on some of the more
traditionally defined applications of computing in humanities
disciplines, including text encoding, hypertext, text corpora,
computational lexicography, statistical models, and syntactic,
semantic, stylistic and other forms of text analysis; broad library
and research-based proposals that focus on significant issues of
text documentation and information retrieval; and tools-focused
proposals that offer innovative and substantial applications and
uses for humanities-based teaching and research, throughout the
academic and research worlds.
 
 
The deadline for submissions is 31 DECEMBER 1994.
 
 
REQUIREMENTS: Proposals should describe substantial and original
work. Those 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 (e.g., a study of the style of an
author) 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.
 
 
INDIVIDUAL PAPERS: Abstracts of 1500-2000 words should be submitted
for presentations of thirty minutes including questions.
 
 
SESSIONS: Proposals for sessions (90 minutes) are also invited.
These should take the form of either:
 
(a) Three papers. The session organizer should submit a 500-word
statement describing the session topic, include abstracts of
1000-1500 words for each paper, and indicate that each author is
willing to participate in the session; or
 
(b) A panel of up to 6 speakers. The panel organizer should submit
an abstract of 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.
 
 
POSTERS AND DEMONSTRATIONS
 
 
ACH-ALLC '95 will include poster presentations and software and
project demonstrations (either stand-alone or in conjunction with
poster presentations) to give researchers an opportunity to present
late-breaking results, significant work in progress, well-defined
problems, or research that is best communicated in conversational
mode.
 
By definition, poster presentations are less formal and more
interactive than a standard talk.  Poster presenters will 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.  Posters are actually several large pieces of paper
that present an overview of a topic or a problem.  Poster presenters
are given space to display two or three posters, and may provide
handouts with examples or more detailed information.
 
Poster presenters must be present at their posters at a
specific time during the conference to describe their work and
answer questions, but posters will remain up throughout the
conference.  Specific times will also be assigned for software or
project demonstrations.  Further information on poster presentations
is available from the Program Committee chair.
 
Posters proposals and software and project demonstrations will be
accepted until February 15, 1995 to provide an opportunity for
submitting very current work that need not be written up in a full
paper.  Poster or software/project demonstration proposals should
contain a 300 to 500 word abstract in the same format described
below for paper proposals.  Proposals for software or project
demonstrations should indic ate the type of hardware that would be
required if the proposal is accepted.
 
Doctoral students are encouraged to consider poster submission as a
viable means for discussing ongoing dissertation research.
 
FORMAT OF SUBMISSIONS
 
Electronic submissions are strongly encouraged.  Please pay
particular attention to the format given below.  Submissions which
do not conform to this format will be returned to the authors for
reformatting, or may not be considered if they arrive very close to
the deadline.
 
All submissions should begin with the following information:
 
TITLE: title of paper
AUTHOR(S): names of authors
AFFILIATION: of author(s)
CONTACT ADDRESS: full postal address
E-MAIL: electronic mail address of main author (for contact),
     followed by other authors (if any)
FAX NUMBER: of main author
PHONE NUMBER: of main author
 
(1) Electronic submissions
 
These should be plain ASCII text files, not files formatted by a
wordprocessor, and should not contain TAB characters or soft
hyphens. Paragraphs should be separated by blank lines. Headings
and subheadings should be on separate lines and be numbered. Notes,
if needed at all, should take the form of endnotes rather than
footnotes. References, up to six, should be given at the end.
Choose a simple markup scheme for accents and other characters that
cannot be transmitted by electronic mail, and include an
explanation of the markup scheme after the title information and
before the start of the text.
 
Electronic submissions should be sent to
Elaine Brennan <[log in to unmask]>
with the subject line "<Author's surname> Submission for ACH-ALLC95".
 
 
(2) Paper submissions
 
Submissions should be typed or printed on one side of the paper
only, with ample margins. Six copies should be sent to
