ACH/ALLC 2005: CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) and the Association 
for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC) hereby announce their 2005 
Joint Conference to be held at the University of Victoria, British 
Columbia, Canada:

ACH/ALLC 2005
International Conference on Humanities Computing and Digital Scholarship
Joint Annual Conference of the ACH and the ALLC
June 15-19, 2005, University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/achallc2005/

The 17th 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 of scholars at 
the forefront of their fields.

We invite papers and contributions in all areas related to humanities 
computing and the application of advanced information technologies in 
humanities subjects; papers on research and on teaching are both of 
interest.  Papers may report on new theoretical and methodological advances 
in any relevant field (e.g. linguistics, literature, libraries, history, 
archaeology, cultural studies, computer technology).

The Call for Papers for the 2005 Joint ACH/ALLC Conference will be 
published soon (August 2004).

Proposals may be of three types: papers, poster presentations, and sessions 
(either three-paper or panel sessions). Suitable subjects for proposals 
include but are not limited to:
- traditional applications of computing in the humanities, including (but 
not limited to) linguistics, text corpora, computational lexicography, 
natural language processing, translation studies, literary studies, text 
encoding, hypertext, text analysis, edition philology and statistical models;
- second language acquisition;
- minority, indigenous and rare languages: multilingualism, minority 
languages;
- emerging digitization efforts: new good practices, experiences, 
recommendations, training;
- humanities teaching;
- computational models and applications related to multilingualism and 
multicultural issues;
- the application of information technology to cultural and historical 
studies (including archaeology and musicology);
- new approaches to research in humanities disciplines using digital 
collections;
- the application to humanities data of techniques developed in such fields 
as information science and the physical sciences and engineering;
- the application of information technology to issues related to minority 
cultures as well as the integration of immigrants in the dominant society;
- pedagogical applications of new media within the humanities;
- 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 modeling;
- 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 range of topics covered by humanities computing can also be consulted 
in the journal of the associations:
