                                          International Seminar
                                                     CLiP 2001
                              "Philology and Information Technology"
                               Gerhard-Mercator-Universit=E4t Duisburg

    CLiP 2001 aims at the conceptualisation of a multilingual European
    study program where students not only acquire solid basic knowledge
    in philological contents and methods but at the same time qualify
    for the computational processing of language, text and cultural con-
    tents in general. The program is to be offered jointly by universities
    in different European countries and is to be realised with the help
    of the European mobility programs (Sokrates/Erasmus) already in place,
    with the help of distance teaching, distance studying, eLearning and
    internships in European IT-Industries/Media enterprises or academic IT

    CLiP 2001, therefore, invites contributions above all from researchers
    and teachers at European universities

         - who already make use of Information Technology in their research
           and teaching,
         - who actively take part in digitalisation projects,
         - who contribute to the realisation of virtual universities, digital
           study modules and language courses

    and from the European IT-Industries / Media enterprises

         - who need multilingual humanists,
         - who want to contribute their suggestions regarding relevant key
           qualifications to the concept of such a program,
         - who are able and willing to offer internships for students.

    CLiP 2001 invites contributions to the following sessions

         1.State of the Art

         - Basic theories, models and methods with respect to the
            computational processing of philological contents;
         - Main fields of computer based research and of the digitalisation of
           cultural heritage;
         - Key qualifications from the perspective of IT-Industries, Media
           enterprises, Publishers etc.

         2.Degree Course "Philology and Information Technology"

         - Contents and structure
         - Similar programmes of study

         3.Realisation of a multilingual European Degree Course

         - Virtual Universities, Online-modules;
         - Exchange, study and research periods in a foreign country,
           internship in a foreign country;
         - Computer aided language tuition and language learning (e.g.
         - Technologies of the 3rd generation (e.g. UMTS etc.)

    If you read the journal, Computers and the Humanites, you may remember a very
    thorough review article of Lanham's book "The Electronic Word" together with
    jay Bolter's book "Writing Space" written by Allen Renear in 1995!!
