    ALLC/ACH 2002
    University of Tuebingen
    24-28 July 2002

    The 2002 Joint International Conference of the Association for Literary
    and Linguistic Computing and the Association for Compters and the
    Humanities takes place from July 24-28 at the University of Tuebingen
    in Germany.

    The Annual Joint Conference of the ALLC and ACH is the most widely
    attented international event in the field. It is the major showcase
    for projects combining humanities research with cutting-edge technology,
    providing a wide forum for paper presentations, panel discussions,
    project reports and software demonstrations.

    The theme for the 2002 conference is "New Directions in Humanities
    Computing". It will feature plenary addresses by two leading scholars:
    Hans-Walter Gabler of the University of Munich, and Roy Wisbey, Professor
    emeritus of King's College London and co-founder of ALLC.

    Tbingen University has a long-standing tradition of interdisciplinary
    work, which includes combining humanities and technology: in 1623,
    Wilhelm Schickard, Professor of Oriental Languages and later of Astronomy,
    invented the first calculating machine. In 1966, Tbingen was the first
    German university to create an extra academic post for humanities
    computing at its computing centre.

    Tbingen is a quaint medieval town located in an attractive countryside.
    Two full day and two half day excursions give the opportunity for
    participants to get in contact with each other while exploring
    highlights of south-western Germany's cultural heritage and enjoying
    its picturesque countryside.

    Registration is now open. A list of accepted papers and a provisional
    summary timetable are available at the conference website; a list of
    poster sessions and the full program will be announced soon. You can
    register online on our website at:
