    The general aim of the annual conference and course
    Libraries in the Digital Age (LIDA), started in 2000, is to
    address the changing and challenging environment for
    libraries and information systems and services in the
    digital world, with an emphasis on examining contemporary
    problems, advances and solutions. Each year a different and
    'hot' theme is addressed,divided in two parts; the first
    part covers research and development and the second part
    addresses advances in applications and practice. LIDA seeks
    to bring together researchers, practitioners, and developers
    in a forum for personal exchanges, discussions, and
    learning, made easier by being held in memorable locations.

             Subject: Call for Papers

    Dear Computing Humanists,

    Please circulate.

    Call for papers for a joint ACCUTE and COCH/COSH Session at the Canadian
    Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of
    Manitoba in May, 2004.

              Playing with Text Analysis

    Computer assisted text analysis has been seen as an aide to traditional
    research techniques in textual disciplines. The idea was that
    computers could help us answer the questions we have always asked by
    automating the repetitive tasks like creating concordances to texts.
    Recently however there has been a shift away from using computers as
    servants towards more playful ways of using computers in literary
    research. The papers at this session will explore the intersection
    of literary studies and creative computing in order to survey some of the
    trajectories taken by humanities computing researchers and
    developers. All of the presentations should include both
    a demonstration of a tool or software toy along with a theoretical
    positioning of that tool/toy in the discourse around what computers can do
    for literary study.

    Proposals should be sent to Geoffrey Rockwell ( grockwel@mcmaster.ca ) by
    November 15th, 2003.
