            ASSOCIATION FOR COMPUTERS AND THE HUMANITIES
         ASSOCIATION FOR LITERARY AND LINGUISTIC COMPUTING
 
          1993 JOINT INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE  ACH-ALLC93
 
                          JUNE 16-19, 1993
               GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY, WASHINGTON, D.C.
 
 
                          CALL FOR PAPERS
 
This conference is the major forum for literary, linguistic and
humanities computing.  It is concerned with the development of new
computing methodologies for research and teaching in the
humanities, the development of significant new networked-based and
computer-based resources for humanities research, and the
application and evaluation of computing techniques in humanities
subjects.
 
TOPICS: We welcome submissions on topics such as text encoding;
statistical methods for text analysis; hypertext; text corpora;
computational lexicography; morphological, syntactic, semantic and
other forms of text analysis; also, computer applications in history,
philosophy, music and other humanities disciplines. For the 1993
conference, ACH and ALLC extend a special invitation to members of the
library community to contribute to the conference on the topics of
creating and cataloguing network-based resources in the humanities,
developing and integrating databases of texts and images of works
central to the humanities, and refining retrieval techniques for
humanities databases.
 
LOCATION: Georgetown, an historic residential district along the Potomac
River, is a six-mile ride by taxi from Washington National Airport.
International flights arrive at Dulles Airport, which offers regular
bus service to the Nation's Capital.
 
REQUIREMENTS: Proposals should describe substantial and original
work. Proposals describing the development of new computing
methodologies should make clear how these methodologies are applied
to research and/or teaching in the humanities. Those concerned with a
particular application (e.g., a study of the style of an author)
should cite previous approaches to the problem and should include some
critical assessment of the computing methodologies used. All proposals
should include references to important sources.
 
ABSTRACT LENGTH: Abstracts of 1500-2000 words in length should be
submitted for presentations of thirty minutes including questions.
 
SESSION PROPOSALS: 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.
 
(b) A panel of up to 6 speakers.  The panel organizer should submit
an abstract of 1500-2000 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.
 
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: November 1, 1992
 
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE: February 1, 1993
 
FORMAT FOR SUBMISSIONS: Electronic submissions are strongly
encouraged, and should follow strictly the format given below.
Submissions that do not conform to this format will be returned to the
authors for reformatting, or may not be considered if they arrive near
the deadline.
 
All submissions should include a header in the following format:
 
TITLE: title of paper
AUTHOR(S): names of authors
AFFILIATION: affiliations of author(s)
CONTACT ADDRESS: full postal address of main author (for contact)
E-MAIL: electronic mail address of main author followed by other
              authors (if any)
FAX NUMBER: fax for main author
PHONE NUMBER: phone for main author
 
ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS: Please submit plain ASCII text files. Files
that include formatting by a wordprocessor, TAB characters, and soft
hyphens are not acceptable. Paragraphs should be separated by blank
lines. Headings and subheadings should be on separate lines and be
numbered. References (up to six) and notes should appear at the end of
the abstract. Where necessary, a simple markup scheme for accents and
other characters that cannot be transmitted by electronic mail should
be used; provide an explanation of the markup scheme after the title
information.
