Dear All,

The first joint conference of the ALLC and the ACH (University of
Toronto, 1989) was announced as the '16th International ALLC
Conference -- 9th ICCH Conference'
In my attempt to reconstruct the chronology of these conferences up
to this first joint one, I lack the details of some of them. I hope
that the community can help me complete my information.

ICCH Conferences:
- Does anyone know whether the proceedings of ICCH/2 (University of
Southern California, Los Angeles, 1975) and ICCH/4 (Darthmouth
College, Hanover, New Hampshire, 1979) were published?
- Where were ICCH/7 (1985) and ICCH/8 (1987, Columbia?) held, and
were their proceedings published?

ALLC Conferences:
- Where was ALLC 1986 hosted?
- Apart from the 10 biannual series of ALLC conferences from
1970-1988, there must have been an (occasional) series of 5 ALLC
conferences which took place between 1982 and 1989. The 1982
conference in Pisa was, according to the proceedings, the 7th
conference whereas the 1984 conference in Louvain-la-Neuve was the
11th conference. The 1988 conference in Jerusalem was the 15th
conference. So I guess I'm looking for three 'missing' ALLC
conferences in 1982-1984 and two in 1984-1988.
- In 1979 an international conference on Literary and Linguistic
Computing was held in in Tel Aviv (Israel) and the proceedings were
published as Malachi, Zvi (ed.) (1979). Proceedings of the
International Conference on Literary and Linguistic Computing Israel.
Tel-Aviv: Tel-Aviv University and the Association for Literary and
Linguistic Computing.
Apparently, this conference was not counted in the 16 ALLC
conferences up to 1989. Does anyone know of more ALLC conferences
outside of the series I sketched so far?

Or maybe someone got their maths very very wrong.

Thanks for all your help,
