ASSOCIATION FOR LITERARY AND LINGUISTIC COMPUTING
ASSOCIATION FOR COMPUTERS AND THE HUMANITIES
 
JOINT INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ALLC-ACH '96
 
JUNE 25-29, 1996 UNIVERSITY OF BERGEN, NORWAY
 
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 developing applications.
 
TOPICS: The Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing and the
Association for Computing and the Humanities invite submissions on
topics and applications focused on the humanities disciplines, such as:
languages and literature, history, philosophy, music, art, linguistics,
anthropology and archaeology, creative writing, cultural studies, etc.
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. Submissions on humanities computing in developing
countries and software/courses/courseware in undergraduate education are
welcomed.
 
The official language is English.
 
The deadline for submissions is 30 NOVEMBER 1995.
 
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 six 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
 
ALLC-ACH '96 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 displayed 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 January 15, 1996 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 indicate 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.
 
As part of its commitment to promote the development and application of
appropriate computing in humanities scholarship, the Association for
Literary and Linguistic Computing  will award up to five bursaries of up
to 500 GB pounds each to students and young scholars who have papers
accepted for presentation at the conference.  Applicants must be members
of ALLC, and must be aged 30 years or less at the start of the
conference. Those wishing to be considered for an award should indicate
this in their conference proposal.  The ALLC will make the awards  after
the Programme Committee have decided which proposals are to be
accepted.  Recipients will be notified as soon as  possible thereafter.
A participant in a multi-author paper is eligible  for an award, but it
must be clear that s/he is contributing  substantially to the paper.
 
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

LOCATION
 
The University of Bergen was founded in 1946 but its history goes  back
to 1825 with the founding of the Bergen Museum.  The University has  an
enrolment of some 17,000 students. It is located in the central part of
the  city of Bergen. Hosting this conference, the  Norwegian  Computing
Centre  for  the Humanities was founded in 1972 and is located  at  the
University of Bergen.
 
Bergen, Norway's second largest city with a population of 220,000, was
founded in 1071 according to the sagas. The city was an important
Hanseatic trading centre and has retained an international profile that
dates back to the early Middle Ages.
 
There are direct flights to Bergen from Copenhagen, London, Oslo, and
Paris. There is also a train connection with Oslo, and a ferry between
Newcastle and Bergen.
 
Hotel rooms in different price ranges will be available within walking
distance from the conference center, and economically priced student
accommodation will be available outside central Bergen.
 
It is expected at this time that the fee for early registration for the
conference will be in the US$125 to US$150 range, with an additional
late registration fee.
 
Detailed information about the conference will be made available in
January or February of 1996.
