A Conference to be held at Somerville College, Oxford July 1-3 1996=20

   Technology for Scholarship, London Guildhall University
The Conference Theme
   Advances in computing affect all who work with the fundamental
   resources of humanities scholarship. Archivists are learning new ways
   to conserve their holdings of primary materials, ranging from
   manuscripts through electronic texts to video. Electronic materials
   are becoming increasingly important to librarians, who are developing
   new forms of structured access to them. Scholars explore these
   materials with new tools, and produce new kinds of scholarship with
   them. As electronic publication increasingly gives individual archives
   and scholars the power to publish, the traditional role of the
   publisher is also changing. Long-held paradigms of scholarly
   resources--their ownership, their use, their distribution--are being
   transformed. Archivists, librarians, scholars and publishers have to
   rework their relationships in this new information world, without
   losing sight of the traditional values of academic discourse.
The Conference
   This conference will provide a forum for archivists, librarians,
   scholars and publishers to explore these changes, and to seek the best
   ways to exploit them together. The conference will have four strands,
   as follows:
     * News from the front: papers and sessions on work done and in
       progress, focusing on innovation in resource handling,
       scholarship, and in delivery systems.
     * As we may think: papers and sessions on the intellectual
       framework, discussing (for example) issues of standards design,
       copyright and wider social implications.
     * Hard answers to practical problems: workshop sessions pitched at
       various levels, from novice to expert. Suitable workshop topics
       might include: project management, fund-raising strategies,
       encoding design, resource discovery, Internet publishing,
       digitization, copyright management, time-based media, image
       recognition, application of international standards.
     * For sale or rent: an exhibition of computer software and
       electronic publications.
Who should Attend?
   All who are concerned with the impact of computing on work with the
   fundamental resources of humanities scholarship =D1 traditional primary
   textual and still image material, and newer sound and moving image
   media also =D1 will find this conference of interest. Some conference
   presentations will be addressed to those engaged in projects
   addressing large-scale scholarly resources. Other presentations will
   be addressed to those interested in the legal or cultural aspects of
   these developments. Others will be suitable for those seeking the best
   way to begin a project in this area.
Call for Proposals
   Conference sessions will be of ninety minutes, with up to three
   sessions at once, and at least one plenary session on each of the
   three days of the conference. The conference will open and close with
   addresses from distinguished invited speakers. We invite proposals for
   the four strands of the conference outlined above, as follows:

   publishers. Papers, workshops or exhibitors focusing on standards and
   open systems will be especially welcome.
