                        Call for Papers
This conference follows on from the previous CATH conferences
held at Southampton and St Andrews.  It is intended for those
using or wishing to use computers in the teaching of the main
humanities disciplines.
The conference will be a mixture of plenary sessions, parallel
sessions, and workshops/tutorials. The workshops/tutorials
will be practical and designed to introduce participants to
some of the skills needed for the preparation of the
courseware materials.
Themes for the conference will focus on:
     Computer applications in the humanities
     Course design issues
     Courseware authoring tools: types, sources, and uses
     Evaluation of courses, courseware, and students
     Pedagogic considerations in the use of computers in
          humanities teaching
     Relevance of research issues
Prospective participants are invited to submit proposals for
papers for parallel sessions (30 minutes in length including
time for questions) or for software demonstrations, based on
the above themes, or for workshops in relevant methodologies
(these should be three hours in length).   Abstracts should be
approximately 500 words long and should have a title and the
full postal address of the proposer at the top.  They should
include brief details of equipment requirements and should be
submitted by 15th June 1991 (decisions will be made by 1st
August).  E-mailed abstracts are welcome; please ensure that
they are in plain ASCII format.
All abstracts and other queries should be sent to:
