[The following points to a report on an event, Digital Innovation
Day, that took place at UCLA on Thursday, in which I participated.
The amount, breadth and depth of activity in the digital humanities
at UCLA is quite impressive. --WM]

                              Call for Participation

           14th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
                            Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
                                July 2-5, 2007
      (a satellite event to Brazilian Computer Society Conference - CSBC'07)

      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, in conjunction with the 27th Brazilian
      Computer Society Conference. It is 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).

      The proceedings of WoLLIC'2007, including both invited and contributed
      papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
      Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science. In addition,
      abstracts will be published in the Conference Report section of
      the Logic Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions will
      be published as a special post-conference WoLLIC'2007 special issue
      of the journal Information and Computation.
