I've been asked to bring the following to the notice
of the archaeological community - that means you!

The Association for History and Computing is calling for papers for its
next UK conference. The theme is 'The Integration of the disciplines'
and the purpose is to draw together common issues from disciplines
related history. The organisers are particularly keen to see a high
level of input from archaeology.

Two areas of particular interest are GIS and visual databases -
particularly those which are a part of interdisciplinary projects. If
possible emphasis should be on systems which up and running rather than
theory. Demonstrations would also be welcomed.

Association for History and Computing, 5th Annual British
Conference, University College of Wales,

Aberystwyth, UK. 2-4 April 1992

The general theme of this year's conference will be 'The
Integration of the Disciplines'. Apart from plenary papers by
internationally distinguished speakers, it is proposed to organise
specialist sections on a variety of cognate disciplines including
Archaeology, Art History, Archive and Records Managements,
Demography, Spatial Geography and Psephology. In addition
there will be the usual group sessions on the latest developments
and implementations of database management, graphics,
simulation and text handling, while the Education and Teaching
section will involve the collaboration of a number of official
agencies and local authorities. Finally there will be a range of
demonstrations and poster sessions. In addition to the Annual
dinner there will also be an official reception hosted by the
University authorities.
Submissions are invited on all areas of historical computing,
including text handling, databases, quantitative analysis, simulation
and modelling, but we are particularly interested in submissions
which relate to the main themes. The deadline for submissions is
30th December 1991 Submissions should contain brief abstracts,
around 1000 words in length (although longer abstracts up to 2000
can be accepted). Papers will normally be allowed 30 minutes, but
fuller abstracts will be invited from authors who have been included
in the programme and these will be distributed beforehand. Please
