    Collecting, Connecting, and Creating Knowledge:
    Libraries, Archives and Research in the C21st
    A conference organized by the Friends of the Turnbull Library
    and the Humanities Society of New Zealand.

    National Library of New Zealand, Molesworth Street, Wellington, 20-22
    June 2003

    The purpose of this conference is to explore the topic of libraries,
    archives and research in the multiple contexts of national, university,
    specialist and public libraries and archives, new and old media, and the
    changing environment for research and new knowledge creation, especially in
    the humanities and arts.

    The conference aims to bring together researchers and representatives of
    the principal components of the New Zealand library system, broadly
    interpreted to include all repositories of information sources.
    Exploring the topic will require assessing the principal changes occuring in
    the conception and functions of information repositories and the different ways
    in which research can be understood as a characteristic of the knowledge

                           August 9-21, 2004, Nancy, France

                      CALL FOR COURSE and WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

    The main focus of the European Summer Schools in Logic, Language and
    Information is on the interface between linguistics, logic and
    computation. Foundational, introductory and advanced courses together
    with workshops cover a wide variety of topics within the three areas
    of interest: Language and Computation, Language and Logic, and Logic
    and Computation.

    Previous summer schools have been highly successful, attracting up to
    500 students from Europe and elsewhere. The school has developed into
    an important meeting place and forum for discussion for students and
    researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic,
    Language and Information. ESSLLI-2004 is organized under the auspices
    of the European Association for Logic, Language and Information

    The ESSLLI-2004 Program Committee invites proposals for foundational,
    introductory, and advanced courses, and for workshops for the 16th
    annual Summer School on a wide range of timely topics that have
    demonstrated their relevance in the following fields:


    In addition to courses and workshops there will be a Student Session.
    A Call for Papers for the Student Session will be distributed

    PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: Proposals should be submitted through a web form
    available through <http://www.esslli.org/2004/submission.html>.

    All proposals should be submitted no later than Wednesday July 16,
    2003. Authors of proposals will be notified of the committee's
    decision no later than Wednesday September 17, 2003. Proposers should
