    The Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC) and the
    Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) hereby announce their
    2004 joint conference to be held in Göteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden

    Computing and Multilingual, Multicultural Heritage

    16th Joint Annual Conference of ALLC and ACH
    June 11-16, 2004, Göteborg (Gothenburg), Sweden

    The joint conference of the Association for Literary and Linguistic
    Computing (ALLC) and the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH)
    is the oldest established meeting of scholars working at the intersection
    of advanced information technologies and the humanities, annually
    attracting a distinguished international community of scholars at the
    forefront of their fields.

    The 2004 conference has two aims. First, we invite papers and contributions
    in all areas related to humanities computing and the application of
    advanced information technologies in humanities subjects, including
    linguistics, literature, cultural and historical studies, translation
    studies, media studies and digital collections. Papers on research and on
    teaching are both of interest. Papers may report on new theoretical and
    methodological advances in any relevant field. Second, within this context,
    the conference is expected to address the increased challenges of
    multilingualism, an issue manifested by the further enlargement of Europe
    and the process of integration of nations world wide. We thus also
    encourage papers related to the linguistic and cultural issues of
    multilingual communities.

    It is clear that specialists in humanities computing can help achieve these
    aims through individual scientific and educational tasks and joint
    projects, as well as by making available their research base through
    educational and electronic library resources. We believe that responding to
    these new challenges will also have a fertilizing effect on humanities
    computing as a whole by opening up new ways and methodologies to enhance
    the use of computers and computation in a wide range of humanities disciplines.

    The Call for Papers for the 2004 Joint ALLC/ACH Conference will be
    published in June 2003. We welcome presentations in English, French,
    German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.

    Further information on the research and educational activities as well as
    on past conferences of the two associations can be found at www.allc.org
    (ALLC) and www.ach.org (ACH). For an overview of the range of topics
    covered by humanities computing please refer to the journals of the
    Associations, Literary and Linguistic Computing (www.oup.co.uk) and
    Computers and the Humanities (www.kluweronline.com).
