Call for Presentations

CaSTA 2005 -- Canadian Symposium on Text Analysis
Digital Technologies: Tools, Methods, Solutions
University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
October 3-7, 2005


The fourth annual CaSTA Symposium will be held at the University of Alberta
October 3rd through 7th, 2005. The event will:

- bring together scholars from diverse disciplines, whose work shares
common approaches in text encoding, knowledge management, and digital
approaches to scholarly communication

- be a forum for discussion of best practices, and sharing of
insights, tools and approaches in these fields

- provide hands-on, practical workshop and discussion activities for
scholars considering or underway with projects of this type

To achieve these goals, we are running a series of discipline-specific
workshops, seminars, and forums during the week. Invited experts will
conduct workshops, lead seminars, and provide personal consultation on
scholarly projects which use text encoding and text transformation
