                                 Call for Papers

           14th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
                            Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
                                July 2-5, 2007

      WoLLIC is an annual international forum on inter-disciplinary research
      involving formal logic, computing and programming theory, and natural
      language and reasoning. Each meeting includes invited talks and
      tutorials as well as contributed papers.

      The Fourteenth WoLLIC will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from
      July 2 to July 5, 2007, and sponsored by the Association for Symbolic
      Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL),
      the European Association for Logic, Language and Information
      (FoLLI), the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science
      (EATCS), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computacao (SBC), and the
      Sociedade Brasileira de Logica (SBL).

      Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular
      interest in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive
      areas of interest are: foundations of computing and programming;
      novel computation models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and
      formal methods in software and hardware development; logical approach to
      natural language and reasoning; logics of programs, actions and
      foundational aspects of information organization, search, flow, sharing,
      and protection.
      Proposed contributions should be in English, and consist of a scholarly
      exposition accessible to the non-specialist, including motivation,
      background, and comparison with related works.
      They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or higher), with up to
      5 additional pages for references and technical appendices.
      The paper's main results must not be published or submitted
      for publication in refereed venues, including journals and other
      scientific meetings.
      It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by
      one of its authors.
      Papers must be submitted electronically at
      A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by
      February 23, and the full paper by March 2 (firm date).
      Notifications are expected by April 13, and final papers for
      the proceedings will be due by April 27 (firm date).

      Proceedings, including both invited and contributed papers,
      will be published in advance of the meeting.
      Publication venue: Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

         Subject: ESTS Conference 2007
Textual scholarship and THE canon
the fourth international conference of the ESTS
at Vilnius University, Vilnius, Lithuania
22-24 November, 2007
Call for Papers
The conference website:=
Textual Scholarship is mostly concerned with
authors and texts which belong to a cultural
canon, but at the same time it is also engaged in
the formation and reformation of that canon
itself. Most of the stages and aspects of the
emergence of the canon is directly related to the
issues of transmission, editing, publication, and
dissemination of the texts =96 the issues that are
also crucial to Textual Scholarship.
The literary canon of the Western European
nations was influenced by the old tradition of
editing Classical, Biblical, and Patristic
literature in which canonization is an
everlasting question. In respect to this, the
canon of the nations of Central and East Europe
developed relatively late in the context of the
mass dissemination of books and of modern
philology. Both comparisons and analyses of the
models of interaction between those literatures are promising.
The notion of the canon is one aspect among
others in which Textual Scholarship is impacted
by the theories that call into question
hierarchies of value, as well as by the new media
that influence the way canon and the modes of its
existence are viewed. On the other hand,
electronic editing and especially internet
publishing are important factors in terms of the
reformed or the reforming canon, insofar as they
change the nature and scope of the accessibility
of literary works and of their particular versions.
The different nature of literary works held to be
the pride of national literature was important in
determining the differences between the
Anglo-Saxon, German, French, and other schools of
Textual Scholarship. At the same time one should
raise the question as to how the different
emphasis of these schools on certain aspects of
the texts and their distinct editorial strategies
could have helped to focus the attention of the
reading public on certain authors and works in exclusion of others.
Controversies regarding =91canonical texts=92, its
synonyms or euphemisms (=91standard text=92, =91stable
text=92 etc.) and antonyms (=91polytext=92, =91multiple
text=92, =91fluctuating text=92) also attest that the
issue of canon is relevant for discussions in the field of Scholarly=
Textual Scholarship, just as any other area of
scholarship, has a canon of its own, which
underwent major upheavals in the recent decades.
It also has its own =91canonised=92 scholars,
scholarly works, and the evolution within the
canon. Establishment of the most novel tendencies
in this area is also a worthwhile goal.
Finally, the discussion of the concept of CANON
itself, its scope and application in the context
of Textual Scholarship seems to be a meaningful undertaking in its own=
Topics for discussion may include, but are not limited to:
* =91We are what we read=92 =96 but you read what we
edit: Textual Scholarship and the reading public
* The impact of Textual Scholarship on the canon
of national literature (and vice versa).
* Issue of canonical edition
* Un-canonical editions of canonical works
* Notion of canon and the new media: Textual Scholarship approach
* The canon and the canonised within Textual Scholarship
* Methods in Textual Scholarship: between
national schools and international canon
* Textual Scholarship and the CANON
