crossing Greece, Poland, Israel, China, Japan, Chile, Brazil etc.

The music by Mário Laginha and Maria João will
keep you company while you'll observe the writing
in plank of clay of Gilgamesh or many versions of
a poem of Eugénio de Andrade; the writing of the
Confucius's Analects or that of the Leopardi's
poems etc. It will also be a precious opportunity
to observe the palimpsest involving the
Confessions of St. Augustine and Pliny's Natural History.

Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science

The second Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer
Science will be held on October 21-22, 2007 at Northwestern
University. The event is jointly sponsored by the Illinois Institute
of Technology, Northwestern University, and the University of Chicago.

The theme for this colloquium will be "Exploring the scholarly query
potential of high quality text and image archives in a collaborative
environment." This is a call for papers and poster sessions. The
deadline for submissions will be July 31, 2007, and notifications
will be made by September 3, 2007. Proposal abstracts (2 page
maximum) should be submitted in either PDF or MS Word format to
dhcs- submissions_at_listhost.uchicago.edu.

Further details will be available soon at the colloquium web site
(http://dhcs.uchicago.edu/), where right now you can see the program
of last year's very successful colloquium.

The sessions will be organized around the sub-themes of the query
potential of high-quality image archives, the query potential of
well- encoded archives, and the significance of collaborative or social
computing environments for research in the humanities.

We look forward to receiving your proposals on these topics.
