             Subject: Workshop on Transcription of Medieval MSS at Berkeley
    April 26

    The Digital Scriptorium Project has prepared a revised version of the
    Document Type Definition (DTD) for the encoded transcription of medieval
    manuscripts using XML, documentation of that DTD, and a set of software
    tools to facilitate their use. These materials are available to anyone, at
    UC Berkeley or elsewhere, at


    The original DTD was prepared by Michael Sperberg-McQueen, former U.S.
    editor of the Text Encoding Initiative. An XML version was prepared by
    David Seaman (Electronic Text Center, U. of Virginia). This in turn was
    revised by Sharon Goetz (UC Berkeley). We are deeply indebted to all three
    for their work.

    The Bancroft Library, U. of California, Berkeley, will sponsor a one-day
    hands-on workshop (9 a.m. - 4
    p.m.) on Friday, April 26. The workshop will be led by Sharon Goetz and
    Charles Faulhaber and will cover all aspects of the use of the
    transcription guidelines and the software: downloading and installation,
    overview of text encoding principles for the preparation of
    machine-readable texts, and step-by-step instruction in the encoding and
    transcription of medieval manuscripts using the software.

    Participants may use manuscripts available on the Digital Scriptorium
    website or provide their own.

    There is no fee, but we can accomodate only 17 participants. If you are
    interested in attending the workshop, please contact Charles Faulhaber

    If there is sufficient interest, we will schedule a second workshop for
    the summer.

             Subject: International symposium on the Slovene novel

    Symposium Obdobja 21
    Methods and Genres
    The Slovene Novel
    Ljubljana, 5-7 December 2002

    You are cordially invited to the international symposium on the Slovene
    novel that will take place in Ljubljana December 5-7 this year. There is at
    least one topic in the invitation that could be of interest to some
    Humanist members, namely the relation between the novel and other media
    (digitalization, screen realization, etc.).

    There will be no registration fee for participants.

    Members of Humanist may be interested to note that some of the Slovene
    novels have been translated into other languages and are suitable for being
    analysed also by those who don't speak Slovene (e. g. the succesful
    Vladimir Bartol's historical novel Alamut, 1938, dealing with the suicide
    soldiers in the 11th century Iran, is available in French and German

    Digital Preservation: 2nd OCLC Institute Videoconference this Friday
    Do you recall the glorious color images sent back by Voyager? Or photos of
    the first humans on the moon? Where is that information now? Will future
    generations be able to access it?

    Conceived by NASA, the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) standard
    offers a framework for protecting our digital heritage.
    What does OAIS mean to information professionals? How should we apply it to
    our storage, preservation, and access projects?

    Please join us this Friday, April 19, noon-2:30 EST, for the OCLC
    Institute's second "Steering by Standards" videoteleconference. Our
    speakers on the topic of "The OAIS Imperative: Enduring Record or Digital
    Don Sawyer of NASA, Bruce Ambacher of NARA, and MacKenzie Smith of MIT--will
    welcome your comments and questions via e-mail, fax, or toll-free phone.
    For registration information, please see

    2003 ACM SYMPOSIUM ON APPLIED COMPUTING (SAC'03) Melbourne, Florida, USA, 9-12 March, 2003


    *** Call for Track Proposals ***

    *** Deadline Extended to 25th of April ***

    For the past seventeen years the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers and application developers to gather, interact and present their work. The ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP)is the sole sponsor of SAC. The conference proceedings are published by ACM and are also available on the web through ACM's Digital Library.

    SAC is based on a flexible structure of mostly self-contained and self-managed tracks. Over the past years it has hosted tracks on a variety of topics such as Artificial Intelligence, BioInformatics, Computers in Education, Parallel and Distributed Systems, Internet Technologies, Software Engineering, etc. SAC'02, which was held in Madrid, Spain, consisted of 21 tracks which hosted 194 accepted papers out of 457 submissions.
