The Digital Medievalist Community of Practice
(http://www.digitalmedievalist.org/) is sponsoring two sessions at the
Forty-Fifth International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 7-10,
2009 (http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/). See below for session
names and descriptions.

Please send inquiries and abstracts for 20-minute presentations to
Peter Robinson at p.m.robinson at bham.ac.uk. Abstracts must be attached
to a Participant Information Form, available in both MS Word and PDF
formats from the Congress website:
http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions/index.html#PIF.

Proposals must be submitted by September 15, 2009.

Paper session: The state of the art in handwriting recognition and
analysis for medieval documents

Much work has been done towards automated analysis of handwritten
documents, with a focus on handwriting recognition, in the last years,
and some of the developments seen in OCR and layout recognition
systems may be applicable to medieval studies.  Further, the
increasing interest in sophisticated linkages of text and image might
be enhanced by developments in handwriting recognition and analysis.
We welcome papers which report on work done or ongoing in these areas,
or which seek to establish methodologies.

Paper session: Collaborative tools and environments for medieval scholarship

Many groups around the world are working to develop a new generation
of collaborative tools and research environments, with potential wide
applicability to medieval studies.  This leads to questions about the
nature of collaboration itself, and about useful models of
collaboration.  Reports form the coal face on collaborations which
have, or have not, worked are welcome, as are demonstrations of tools
and ruminations on the many faces of collaboration.

Again, please send inquiries and abstracts for 20-minute presentations
to Peter Robinson at p.m.robinson at bham.ac.uk. Abstracts must be
attached to a Participant Information Form, available in both MS Word
and PDF formats from the Congress website:
http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions/index.html#PIF.

5th Doctoral Workshop on Mathematical and Engineering
                        Methods in Computer Science

                                MEMICS 2009

                           http://www.memics.cz
       November 13--15, 2009, Hotel Prestige, Znojmo, Czech Republic

             		      Call for Papers

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

           Deadlines:
                       abstract registration: September  7, 2009

                       submissions:           September 14, 2009

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The aim: To provide a forum for doctoral students interested in applications 
of mathematical and engineering methods in computer science with an emphasis 
on methods for developing reliable and secure computer systems.

Topics: Submissions are invited especially in the following (though not
exclusive) areas: software and hardware dependability, computer security,
parallel and distributed computing, formal analysis and verification,
simulation, testing and diagnostics, GRID computing, computer networks, modern
hardware and its  design, non-traditional computing architectures, quantum
computing, and all  related areas of theoretical computer science.

Invited talks: Four invited talks by distinguished researchers from the
different areas of interest of the workshop will be a part of the programme:

* Mikolaj Bojanczyk (University of Warsaw, Poland): 
    Automata for XML.

* Michael Fellows (University of Newcastle, Australia): 
    The Lost Continent of Polynomial Time: Meta-theorems About FPT
    Kernelization.

* Günther Raidl (Vienna University of Technology, Austria): 
    Combining Metaheuristics with Mathematical Programming Techniques for
    Solving Difficult Network Design Problems.

* Andrey Rybalchenko (Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, Germany):
    Automated methods for proving program safety and liveness.

Involvement: Students are invited to submit a regular paper or a presentation. 
A regular paper is a previously unpublished original work, not exceeding 
8 pages in the LNCS style. A presentation reflects recent outstanding work 
that has been published (or is accepted) at a leading computer science 
conference or in a recognized scientific journal, and shall be submitted 
in the form of a one-page abstract which will also appear in the proceedings. 
Detailed instructions are available at the web page http://www.memics.cz/.

The proceedings will be available at the workshop in printed form. Moreover,
selected regular papers from MEMICS 2009 will be published in the External
Workshops series of Dagstuhl DROPS, http://drops.dagstuhl.de/, and a further
possibility of publishing some of the papers in an electronic journal is under
negotiation.
