    Philological Disciplines and Digital Technology
    Computational Philology: Tradition versus Innovation


    The meeting will focus on the scientific production of critical editions
    where the study sources are available in digital format. In this sense the
    discussion created between specialists from the sector will verify if, and
    in which way, the critical methodology will be forced to modify the
    traditional and consolidated approach adopted or if the technological
    instruments have not a particular impact on the methodological aspects,
    limiting them to the provision of some new services for an old discipline.

    This conference's aim is to highlight the relationship between digital
    technology, in particular archives of digital images from inedited
    documents, and critical edition of old, medieval and modern texts written
    both with alphabetical characters and non alphabetical ones (hieroglyphics,
    cuneiform, musical).

    > "Online Classes Go Mainstream"
    > November 10-13, 2003

    The focus of the 2003 Teaching Online in Higher Education online
    conference is on merging online classes into the mainstream. Contrary to
    initial expectations, online classes are often taken by traditional
    students with scheduling problems, family responsibilities or work
    constraints that interfere with traditional class schedules.
    Consequently, existing infrastructure may not sufficiently accommodate the
    flood of students taking online classes. This year we want to take a
    special look at what problems currently exist in how students enroll in
    online courses, how they are served by support services, and how faculty
    teaching online courses fit into the system. If you are aware of
    particular problems that exist in your infrastructure or you are working
    within one that is particularly suited for online courses, we want to
    extend a special invitation to you to submit a proposal to present a paper
    and chat with conference participants online this November.
