A seminar run by Kate Devlin, Goldsmiths College, University of London (7
March 2007)

Computer graphics have become a popular way of interpreting past
environments, for educational and entertainment value, and also as an aid to
research, but they are not subject to the same scrutiny that text invites.
Without supporting data to indicate the motivations for particular
representations of data, the images may merely be one subjective picture of
the past.

Something that proves particularly difficult when creating 3D
computer-generated representations of past environments is how to provide
context of an intangible nature, such as a social, temporal or even
emotional interaction with the representation. For example, many
representations are sterile, empty spaces, devoid of the people who would
have built and used them. We need to look at ways that allow us to convey
the information outside of the physical structure of a scene.

This seminar will address the issues above and other questions including:

*Why are virtual representations being created and are they really being used?

*How do we reconcile the work of computer scientists with the work of

*How do we introduce non-visual and intangible elements to our representations?

The AHRC ICT Methods Network exists to promote and support the application
of advanced ICT methods in the arts and humanities. Please see the Methods
Network website for details about further activities that are being run by,
or in conjunction with, the Methods Network. The Methods Network funds
seminars, workshops and other activities which demonstrate the impact on and
value to arts and humanities research of advanced ICT methods.

Aim of CoLIS
CoLIS is a series of international conferences for which the general
aim is to provide a broad forum for the exploration and exchange of
ideas in the field of library and information science (LIS). To be
examined at CoLIS 6 are theoretical and empirical research trends in
LIS, together with socio-cultural and technical issues relating to our
understanding of the various roles, natures, uses and associated
relationships of information, information systems, information
processes, and information networks. As in previous conferences in the
series, this one, too, promotes an interdisciplinary approach to

In connection to the main conference, both educational and doctoral
forums are provided.


CoLIS 6 has four general themes:
       Reframing LIS from Different Perspectives
       LIS in Contemporary Society
       LIS versus New Research and Professional Fields
       New Research Methods in LIS


Keynote Speakers:
       Dr. Andrew Dillon, USA
       Dr. Elizabeth Orna, UK
       Dr. P.F. (Paul) Wouters, The Netherlands

Invited Speaker at Educational Forum
       Dr. Michael Seadle, Germany


       We invite authors to submit research papers, short papers, panels
and posters.

       Deadline for all submissions: March 1, 2007

Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic allowing direct reference
to worlds/times/states. It is easy to justify interest in hybrid
logic on the grounds of applications as the additional expressive
power is very useful. In addition, hybrid-logical machinery improves
the behaviour of the underlying modal formalism. For example, it
becomes considerably simpler to formulate modal proof systems, and
one can prove completeness and interpolation results of a
generality that is not available in orthodox modal logic.

The topic of the HyLo workshop of 2007 is not only standard
hybrid-logical machinery like nominals, satisfaction operators, and
the downarrow binder, but generally extensions of modal logic that
increase its expressive power.

The workshop HyLo 2007 will be relevant to a wide range of people,
including those interested in description logic, feature logic,
applied modal logics, temporal logic, and labelled deduction. The
workshop continues a series of previous workshops on hybrid logic,
most recently the LICS-affiliated HyLo 2006
(http://hylomol.ruc.dk/HyLo2006/). The workshop aims to provide a
forum for advanced PhD students and researchers to present and
discuss their work with colleagues and researchers who work in the
broad subject areas represented at ESSLLI.

For more general background on hybrid logic, and many of the key
papers, see the Hybrid Logics homepage (http://hylo.loria.fr/).

         Subject: CIP 7th Annual Symposium Copyright Utopia May 21-23, 2007

The Center for Intellectual Property (CIP) at University of Maryland
University College is excited to announce its Seventh Annual Symposium,

          COPYRIGHT UTOPIA: Alternative Visions, Methods & Policies
          MAY 21-23, 2007

For centuries philosophers, writers and artists have dreamed of perfect
worlds. Monarchs by fiat and legislative bodies by bills have attempted
to engineer perfect societies. But it matters not to what corner of the
globe you travel...no one believes we have yet arrived in that perfect
place. Perhaps just one reason we have not yet attained utopia is that
people have such divergent views on what utopia should look like, which
means, of course, that it can be a very complex and messy business to
create one. But, nevertheless, we want to ask the question:

          What would copyright utopia look like?

Join the Center for Intellectual Property as we convene this
conversation with noted scholars and practitioners as they discuss the
current state of copyright nationally and internationally. Featured
keynote speakers:

* Fred Von Lohmann, Senior Staff Attorney, Electronic Frontier
* William Fisher, Director of the Berkman Center for Internet &
Society, Harvard Law School
