           Conference Description

                For the purpose of our teaching, is there an accepted
                set of tools and techniques, and a unique and related
                collection of theories having a commonly-understood
                application, that are associated with the
                (inter)discipline of humanities computing? In other
                words, is there a humanities computing curriculum, a
                curriculum that appropriately treats the role of the
                computer, today, in the context of the centuries-old
                tradition of the arts and humanities?

                What must be considered when designing and implementing
                courses that bring the computer to the arts and
                humanities, courses in humanities computing? Can such
                courses discover and survey the influence of computing
                technology, broadly construed, in the arts? Must
                courses in humanities computing reflect the tradition
                of the computing humanist? Should they embrace all
                current applications of computing in the humanities?
                Can textual description and markup, cybercultural
                studies, text analysis, and (multi)media theory and
                practice, &c., co-exist? What are others in the field
                bringing to their classrooms and to their programs that
                have humanities computing components? Such are the
                questions that many face as they and their institutions
                formulate, for the first time, new academic courses and
                programs that seek to apply computing to established
                arts and humanities curricula.

                Led by expert practitioners in the field of humanities
                computing, through a number of papers, sessions, poster
                presentations, and seminars this conference will
                address the broad range of issues involved in
                integrating computing practice in the teaching of the
                arts and humanities -- from developing a single course
                in a particular discipline to the development of an
                entire curriculum.

                Invited speakers include

                   * Willard McCarty (King's College, London)
                   * John Unsworth (U Virginia)

                such curricula are invited to be considered for
                presentation at this conference.

           Description de la confrence

                Dans le domaine des sciences humaines assistes par
                ordinateur existe-t-il un consensus suffisant sur ses
                techniques, ses outils, et ses thories pour fonder
                notre enseignement et, du mme coup, fonder le domaine
                en tant qu'(inter)discipline distincte? Autrement dit,
                dans le domaine des sciences humaines assistes par
                ordinateur est-il possible de concevoir un programme
                d'tudes centr sur le rle actuel des ordinateurs et
                nanmoins situ au sein des tudes traditionnelles et
                sculaires des arts et des sciences humaines?

                Quelles considrations s'imposent lors de la conception
                et de la ralisation des cours visant appliquer
                l'informatique aux domaines des arts et des sciences
                humaines? De tels cours peuvent-ils dcouvrir quels
                effets a l'informatique, au sens large, sur le domaine
                des arts et sciences humaines? Peuvent-ils en dresser
                l'inventaire? Ces cours en informatique applique
                doivent-ils tenir compte des traditions tablies par
                des chercheurs en sciences humaines dj acquis
                l'approche informatique? Doivent-ils promouvoir toutes
                les applications qui appartiennent au domaine? Les
                approches diffrentes, telles que la textologie et
                l'tiquetage, les tudes de la cyberculture, l'analyse
                textuelle, la thorie et pratique des (multi)mdia,
                etc., peuvent-elles co-exister dans un domaine unique?
                Qu'est-ce que d'autres chercheurs amnent au domaine
                dans la pratique de leurs cours ou de leurs programmes
                ayant une dimension informatique? Telles sont les
                questions que se posent les chercheurs et leurs
                institutions quand ils veulent crer pour la premire
                fois des cours dans lesquels on applique la technologie
                aux programmes dj tablis en arts et sciences

                Dans ces communications, sances, prsentations poster
                et tables rondes, toutes animes par des chercheurs
                experts du domaine des sciences humaines assistes par
                ordinateur, nous traiterons l'ventail des
                problmatiques associes l'intgration de la pratique
                informatise et de l'enseignement des arts et des
                sciences humaines -- de la cration d'un simple cours
                dans un domaine donn jusqu' la cration d'un
                programme d'tudes complet.

    Further to the successful and competitive 1st and 2nd conferences
    on Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing (selected papers
    from which were published by John Benjamins as CILT=A0 vol.136
    and CILT vol.189), we are pleased to announce the third RANLP
    conference to be held this year.

    The conference will take the form of addresses from invited keynote
    speakers plus individual papers. All papers accepted and presented
    will be available as a volume of proceedings at the conference.
    There will also be an exhibition area for poster and demo sessions.


    We invite papers reporting on recent advances in all aspects of
    Natural Language Processing. We encourage the representation of
    a broad range of areas including but not limited to: pragmatics,
    discourse, semantics, syntax, and the lexicon; phonetics, phonology,
    and morphology; text understanding and generation; multilingual NLP;
    machine translation, machine-aided translation, translation aids and
    tools; corpus-based language processing; POS tagging; parsing;
    electronic dictionaries; knowledge acquisition; terminology;
    word-sense disambiguation; anaphora resolution; information retrieval;
    categorisation; question- answering; dialogue systems; speech
    processing; computer-aided language learning; language resources;
    evaluation; and theoretical and application-oriented papers related
    to NLP of every kind.
