The University of Siegen

The Universitaet-Gesamthochschule-Siegen was founded as a comprehensive
university in August 1972. However, the university tradition traces
back to 16th century when the Nassovian university resided in Siegen.

Of the many research projects we list only a few:
- Computer-Oriented Methods of Measuring and Control
(Automation)
- Mobility in History and Changes of Norms
- Mass Media and Communication
- Materials Science and Materials Technology
- Monetary Macro-Economics (Research Center, sponsored by the
German research Foundation DFG)
- Aesthetics, Pragmatics and History of Screen Media:
Television in the Federal Republic of Germany
(Research Center, sponsored by the German Research
Foundation DFG)
- Special research projects of the Department of Physics with
DESY, CERN, ALEPH and NASA

The excellent quality of teaching at this university is proven
by its selection as the best German university 1989 in the
ranking list (quality of teaching) of the magazine "Der Spiegel"
(no. 50, vol. 43, Dec. 11, 1989)

Siegen and Siegerland-Wittgenstein

Siegen, formerly residence of the House of Nassau-Orange with its two
castles and birthplace of the Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens, is the
urban center of the scenic Siegen-Wittgenstein County in the State of
North-Rhine-Westphalia. The city is situated in the center of West
Germany, 100 Kilometers north of Frankfurt, 100 Kilometers east of
Cologne. It can be easily reached by frequent trains from Frankfurt or
Cologne Main Stations, or by car, via A4/A45 from Cologne, or via A5/A45
from Frankfurt.

Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC)

What is the ALLC?
The Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing is an
international association which brings together all who have an
interest in using computers in the analysis of text. The ALLC
was founded in 1973 and its members are drawn from subjects such
as literature, linguistics, lexicography, psychology, history,
law, and computer science.

What the ALLC offers
The ALLC offers conferences, courses, representatives for
subject and geographical area and a major journal, Literary and
Linguistic Computing, published by Oxford University Press,
which all members receive. ALLC Members are also entitle to
reduced rates at ALLC-sponsored gatherings.
Representatives
The ALLC has representatives in over thirty countries throughout
the world. Recognised experts advise on over twenty-five subject
areas including Machine Translation, Computer-Assisted Learning,
Software, Lexicography, Structured Databases, Literary
Statistics, Textual Editing besides language-oriented groups for
texts in many different languages.
Conferences

Recent ALLC conferences have been held at Pisa (1982), San
Francisco (1983), Luvain-la-Neuve (1984), Nice (1985), Norwich
(1986), Gothenburg (1987), Jerusalem (1988), and Toronto (1989).
Literary and Linguistic Computing
In 1986 the ALLC's own publications, the ALLC Bulletin
(1973-1985) and the ALLC Journal (1980-1985) were merged to form
a major new journal published by Oxford University press.

Literary and Linguistic Computing is published four times per
year and appeals to all who have an interest in computer usage
and the humanities. The Editor-in-Chief is Mr. Gordon Dixon,
Institute of Advanced Studies, Manchester Polytechnic,
Manchester, UK.
