    Archives & Museum Informatics announces the second event in the 8 week
    Grindstone Island 2002 Summer Seminar Series. For full details of our
    summer program see http://www.archimuse.com/grindstone/learn.html
    Connecting with the K-12 Teaching and Learning Community
    June 15-21, 2002
    Scott Sayre, Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
    Kris Wetterlund, Educational Consultant, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

    This workshop will help museum educators define their institution's current
    connections to K-12 teachers and students, and use those connections to
    develop a strategy for on-line museum resources that serve the needs of
    their own institutions and the K-12 teaching audience. Through individual
    and group process participants will work with a number of activities and
    case studies from The Minneapolis Institute of Arts. At the conclusion of
    the workshop participants will have developed a draft of formal education
    plans for on-line tools and resources which can be applied in their own

    Teaching with Digital Content: Collaborations with Cultural Institutions

    March 1, 2002, 9:00a.m. - 4:00p.m.
    Chicago Public Library

    Teaching with digital primary source documents brings new challenges to
    teachers, librarians, museum curators and educators. Using digitized
    primary source materials involves fundamental shifts in the service and
    teaching methods of curators, librarians, and teachers, regardless of their
    audiences. New programs need to be developed to integrate digital primary
    source materials into K-12 curriculum and assignments, as well as into the
    educational programs of museums and libraries.
    We invite you to a workshop at the Chicago Public Library on new approaches
    to teaching with digital content. The workshop, funded through an
    Institute of Museum and Library Services grant, will feature individual
    presentations from scholars, educators, librarians and museum personnel, as
    well as a panel question and answer session.
    Speakers include:
    * Prof. Brenda Trofanenko
    - College of Education, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign;
    * Patricia L. Miller
    - Executive Director of the Illinois Heritage Association;
    * Nuala Bennett
    - Interim Coordinator, Digital Imaging and Media Technology Initiative,
    University of Illinois Library;
    * Debbie Hohulin
    - Dr. Howard Elementary School, Champaign;
    * Paul Hohulin
    - Centennial High School, Champaign;
    * Prof. Beth Sandore
    - Associate University Librarian for Information Technology, University of
    * Prof. Evangeline Pianfetti
    - College of Education, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
    * Prof. Paula Kaufman
    - University Librarian, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

    Target Audience: museum curators, librarians, school librarians, school
    media specialists, museum educators, librarians involved in special
    collections work and digitization projects, K-12 educators.

    This event is open to the public. Admission is free, but seating is
    limited so we invite registration by email or phone at the address below.

    FIRST CALL FOR ATTENDANCE HLT 2002, Human Language Technology Conference March 24-27, 2002 Catamaran Resort Hotel, San Diego, California


    Human language technology (HLT) incorporates a broad spectrum of disciplines working towards two closely related goals: to enable computers to interact with humans using natural language capabilities, and to serve as useful adjuncts to humans in language understanding by providing services such as automatic translation, information retrieval and information extraction. The HLT 2002 Conference, following the great success of HLT 2001, is a forum for researchers to present high-quality, very recent, cutting-edge work, to exchange ideas and to explore emerging new research directions. The Conference and Program Chairs have now received over 170 submissions from researchers in computer science, speech science, engineering, etc., who are exploring innovative methods for improving human language technology. HLT 2002 will also include a special focus on Language Processing of Biological Data, which includes both Information Extraction of Biological Data and Language Modeling of Biological Data. This special focus, sponsored by NSF, will comprise back-to-back tutorial sessions at the opening of the conference and a paper session within the larger conference setting. Further information is available at the Conference web site, http://hlt2002.org.

    The Conference will span four days, running from early Sunday afternoon through noon Wednesday. It will include peer-reviewed research presentations, posters, demonstrations, panel sessions and time for discussion.

    ====================================================================== IMPORTANT DATES: Feb. 22, 2002 (Friday): Draft papers (about 5 pages) due March 21, 2002 (Thursday): Notification of acceptance April 22, 2002 (Monday): Camera-Ready papers & Prereg. due June 24-27, 2002: PDPTA'02 International Conference ======================================================================


    Component-based software is likely to be the most promising approach to making distributed systems and Internet applications fit the requirements of the new information-based work organization. Component-based software encompasses many disciplines and application domains, such as groupware, distributed object-oriented software development, middleware, multimedia, CSCW, and distributed simulation. The focus of this session is on component-based in special coordination issues that arise in these systems. Models, languages, and applications for both architectural and behavioral aspects of systems are of special concern.

    The purpose of this session is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on component-based computing and coordination in the diverse disciplines this field encompasses. The session serves as a forum to enable exchange of experience between academia and industry, as well as between researchers working on different aspects of coordination and component-based computing.
