    Intellectual Property in Academia Workshop Series:
    Preventing and Detecting Plagiarism in the Digital Environment
    October 1, 2001 to October 19, 2001
    Moderated by Rebecca Moore Howard, Ph.D.

    Is the writer/reader relationship to text profoundly changed online? Can
    assignments be redesigned to avoid plagiarism in the online and face to
    face classroom? Are academic policies properly addressing campus
    plagiarism issues? This dynamic workshop series will provide
    participants with an in-depth understanding of the plagiarism issues
    facing higher education today.

    The second workshop in this asynchronous online series is an excellent
    follow-up to the well received workshop covering the ownership of online
    course material. Participants will receive daily response and feedback
    from the workshop's moderator.

    Rebecca Moore Howard (http://wrt-howard.syr.edu/) chairs and directs the
    Writing Program at Syracuse University and has written extensively on
    issues concerning plagiarism including, Standing in the Shadow of
    Giants: Plagiarists, Authors, Collaborators (1999); co-author of The
    Bedford Guide to Teaching Writing in the Disciplines (1995); coeditor of
    Coming of Age: The Advanced Writing Curriculum (2000); and author of a
    variety of chapters and articles about plagiarism, pedagogy, and
    composition theory.

             Subject: OASIS HumanMarkup TC

    We would like to formally annouce the creation and Call for Participation
    of the OASIS HumanMarkup Technical Committee.

    Mission Statement:

    The HumanMarkup TC is set forth to develop the HumanML and associated
    specifications. HumanML is designed to represent human characteristics
    through XML. The aim is to enhance the fidelity of human communication.

    HumanML is set forth to be an XML Schema and RDF Schema specification,
    containing sets of modules which frame and embed contextual human
    characteristics including physical, cultural, social, kinesic,
    psychological, and intentional features within conveyed information.

    Other efforts within the scope of the HumanMarkup TC include messaging,
    style, alternate schemas, constraint mechanisms, object models, and
    repository systems, which will address the overall concerns of both
    representing and amalgamating human information within data.

    Target Applications: Examples of human characteristics include emotions,
    physical descriptors, proxemics, kinesics, haptics, intentions, and
    attitude. Applications of HumanML include agents of various types, AI
    systems, virtual reality, psychotherapy, online negotiations,
    facilitations, dialogue, and conflict resolution systems.
