TRANSLATING AND THE COMPUTER 30 Conference 
27-28 November 2008, London
Supported by BCS Natural Language Translation Specialist Group, EAMT, IAMT, ITI,
IoL, LISA and TILP.  Sponsored by CNGL and LTC.

Come and join us at the Holiday Inn Camden Lock to celebrate the 30th conference
with an exciting programme of papers and panels.  The programme, and other
details, can be found at www.aslib.com/conferences

The keynote presentation on the first day of the conference is by Marc Laporte,
AvanTech.net, Canada.  Marc Laporte is an expert on Wikis, Online collaboration,
and Open Source software with over ten years of Web experience.  He has been the
project administrator for TikiWiki CMS/Groupware since 2003. TikiWiki is the
Wiki Way applied to software development where over 170 people have contributed
to the source code, making it one of the largest open source Web applications in
the World. TikiWiki is used in tens of thousands of web
sites/projects/communities/companies and has been picked by Firefox for their
support site. The vast collaborative documentation effort is 960 printed pages,
which is a testament to the scope of the project. TikiWiki was among a handful
of community-driven free source projects to be named to the Seventh Annual
EContent 100. The annual list contains the companies "that matter most in the
digital content industry."

The keynote presentation on the second day is by Ulla Falk-Petersen, Director of
