                          FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS


           ALLC/ACH 2000 invites submissions of between 1000 and 1500
           words on any aspect of humanities computing, broadly
           defined as the point of intersection between computing
           methodologies and problems in humanities research and
           teaching, encompassing both traditional and new, and
           discipline-specific and inter-disciplinary, approaches.

           Appropriate discipline areas include, but are not limited
           to, languages and literature, history, philosophy, music,
           art, film studies, linguistics, anthropology, archaeology,
           creative writing, and cultural studies. We particularly
           encourage submissions from non-text-based areas and from
           library science, both of which have been under-represented
           in the past.

           Other areas of interest include the creation and use of
           digital resources (what has been characterised as
           'extending the scale and breadth of scholarly evidence')
           and the application to humanities data of techniques
           developed in such fields as information science and the
           physical sciences and engineering (including neural
           networks and image processing).

           We are interested in receiving
               - technical proposals that focus on new computational
                 tools and approaches to research in humanities disciplines;
               - proposals that focus on traditional applications of
                 computing in humanities disciplines, including (but
                 not limited to) text encoding, hypertext, text
                 corpora, computational lexicography, statistical
                 models, and syntactic, semantic, stylistic and other
                 forms of text analysis;
               - proposals which present and discuss applications of
                 computing methodologies and tools to audio and visual
		 materials;
               - proposals that focus on significant issues of
                 creation, representation, discovery, delivery,
                 management and preservation of digital and other
                 resources relevant to the humanities;
               - proposals that present and evaluate the use of
                 computers in humanities teaching;
               - proposals dealing with the role of humanities
                 computing in undergraduate and graduate
                 teaching and institutional support for humanities
                 computing.

           PhD students are encouraged to submit proposals. Those
           describing finished research may be submitted as
           papers. Ongoing dissertation research may be submitted as
           poster proposals. See below for details.

           Those interested in seeing the type of paper the committee
           is looking for can consult the abstracts of
           papers at previous conferences:

                 University of Bergen, Norway
                 Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada
                 Lajos Kossuth University, Debrecen, Hungary
                 University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA

           Students and young scholars should also read the note on
           bursaries later in this document.

           Papers may be given in English, French, and German, but to
           facilitate the reviewing process we ask that proposals for
           papers in a language other than English are submitted with
           an English translation.

           The deadline for submissions of paper/session proposals is
           15 NOVEMBER 1999. The deadline for submissions of
           poster/demo proposals is 15 JANUARY 2000.

     FORMAT OF PROPOSALS
           Proposals may be of four types: papers, posters, software
           demonstrations, and sessions. The type of
           submission should be specified in the header of the
           proposal.

     PAPERS
           Proposals for papers (1000-1500 words) should describe
           completed research which has given rise to
           substantial results. Individual papers will be allocated 30
           minutes for presentation, including questions.

           Proposals should describe original work. Those that
           concentrate on the development of new computing
           methodologies should make clear how the methodologies are
           applied to research and/or teaching in the humanities, and
           should include some critical assessment of the application
           of those methodologies in the humanities. Those that
           concentrate on a particular application in the humanities
           should cite traditional as well as computer-based
           approaches to the problem and should include some critical
           assessment of the computing methodologies used. All
           proposals should include conclusions and references to
           important sources. Those describing the creation or use of
           digital resources should follow these guidelines as far as
           possible.

     POSTERS AND DEMONSTRATIONS
           Poster presentations and software and project
           demonstrations (either stand-alone or in conjunction
           with poster presentations) are designed to give researchers
           an opportunity to present late-breaking
           results, significant work in progress, well-defined
           problems, or research that is best communicated in
           conversational mode.

           By definition, poster presentations are less formal and
           more interactive than a standard talk. Poster presenters
           have the opportunity to exchange ideas one-on-one with
           attendees and to discuss their work in detail with those
           most deeply interested in the same topic. Each presenter is
           provided with about 2 square metres of board space to
           display their work. They may also provide handouts with
           examples or more detailed information. Posters will remain
           on display throughout the conference, but a block of time
           separate from paper sessions will be assigned when
           presenters should be prepared to explain their work and
           answer questions. Specific times will also be assigned for
           software or project demonstrations.

           The format for proposals for posters and software
           demonstrations are the same as those for regular
           papers.

           Proposals for software or project demonstrations should
           indicate the type of hardware that would be
           required if the proposal is accepted.

     SESSIONS
           Sessions (90 minutes) take the form of either:
           ((a) Three papers. The session organizer should submit a
           500-word statement describing the session
           topic, include abstracts of 1000-1500 words for each paper,
           and indicate that each author is willing to
           participate in the session; or
           (b) A panel of four to six speakers. The panel organizer
           should submit an abstract of 1000-1500 words
           describing the panel topic, how it will be organized, the
           names of all the speakers, and an indication
           that each speaker is willing to participate in the
           session.

           The deadline for session proposals is the same as for
           proposals for papers.

     FORMAT OF SUBMISSIONS
           All submissions must be sent electronically. Please pay
           particular attention to the format given below.
           Submissions which do not conform to this format will be
           returned to the authors for reformatting, or may
           not be considered if they arrive very close to the
           deadline.

           All submissions should begin with the following
           information:

           TYPE OF PROPOSAL:
                 paper, poster, session or software demonstration.

     BURSARIES
           As part of its commitment to promote the development and
           application of appropriate computing in
           humanities scholarship, the Association for Literary and
           Linguistic Computing will award up to five
           bursaries of up to 500 GB pounds each to students and young
           scholars who have papers accepted for
           presentation at the conference. Applicants must be members
           of ALLC. The ALLC will make the awards
           after the Program Committee have decided which proposals
           are to be accepted. Recipients will be
           notified as soon as possible thereafter. A participant in a
           multi-author paper is eligible for an award, but
           it must be clear that s/he is contributing substantially to
           the paper. Applications must be made to the
           conference organizer. The deadline for receipt of
           applications is the same as for submission of papers,
           i.e. November 15, 1999. Full details of the bursary scheme,
