International Conference

"Codicology and Palaeography in the Digital Age", Munich, 3-4 July 2009

The conference will focus on the challenges and consequences of using IT and the internet for codicological and palaeographic research. The authors of some selected articles of an anthology to be published this summer by the Institute for Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE) will present and discuss their excellent research results with scholars and experts working on ancient books and manuscripts. The presentations will be given on current issues in the following fields: manuscript catalogues and descriptions, digitization of manuscripts, collaborative systems of research on manuscripts, codicological databases, manuscript catalogues, research based on digital resources, e-learning in palaeography, palaeographic databases (characters, scripts, scribes), (semi-) automatic recognition of scripts and scribes, digital tools for transcriptions, visions and prototypes of other digital tools.
A panel discussion will be held with renowned exponents in the field of codicology and palaeography and contributors of cutting edge research to get an overview of the state of the art as well as to open up new perspectives of codicological and palaeographic research in the "digital age".

The conference is open to the public.

        Subject: [IFIP-EC-NEWS] CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - ACM-SIGCHI IDC 2009: TheEight International Conference on Interaction Design and Children

IDC 2009 - The 8th International Conference on Interaction Design and Children
In cooperation with ACM-SIGCHI

Politecnico di Milano - Como Campus, Como, Italy
June 3-5, 2009

******        FINAL PROGRAM NOW AVAILABLE                   ******


For young people today, technology is pervasive in many aspects of 
life. From childhood onwards, they learn and play using computers and 
other technological devices; as they grow, they build and maintain 
friendships using computers and mobile phones; they interact with one 
another virtually; and even find critical interpersonal support and 
therapy using computers, the web, and other technology-enhanced artifacts.

The IDC 2009 conference will continue IDC's tradition of better 
understanding children's and youngsters' needs in relationship to 
technology, exploring how to create interactive products for and with 
them, and investigating how technology-mediated experiences affect 
their life. ICD 2009 will present and discuss the most innovative 
contributions to research, development, and practice in these areas, 
gathering the leading minds in the field.

This conference builds on the successes and high standards of the 
previous IDC conferences (IDC 2008 in Chicago, USA, IDC 2007 in 
Aalborg, Denmark, IDC 2006 in Tampere, Finland, IDC 2005 in Boulder, 
USA, IDC 2004 in Maryland, USA, IDC 2003 in Preston, UK and IDC 2002 
in Eindhoven, the Netherlands).

The PROGRAM of IDC09 presents a complete spectrum of events and 
sessions, exploring all the themes of the conference, in all possible aspects:

- 4 high level scientific WORKSHOPS (selected from a set of 12 
proposals) will be held on June 3 and will offer a terrific 
opportunity to meet in the context of focused and interactive 
discussions, to investigate emerging topics, to move new fields 
forward and to build communities
- Two prestigious KEYNOTE speakers - S. A. Barab (Indiana University, 
USA)  and A. Druin (University of Maryland, USA) - will provide a 
broad perspective on issues of general interest and new visions in 
the IDC field
- The different sessions on June 4 and 5 will include 17 outstanding 
FULL PAPERS (selected from a set of 53 submissions), 30 high-quality 
SHORT PAPERS (selected from a set of 82 submissions), and 14 exciting 
DEMOS (selected from a set of 20 submissions)
- A PANEL will debate the issue of INTERACTION FOR CHILDREN in the 
-  A SPECIAL SESSION  is devoted to present the European Commission 
2010 Research Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning, and the 
recently launched IFIP Special Interest Group on Interaction Design 
and Children.
- The best ideas for interaction for children at pre-school, object 
of the international COMPETITION C4C (Como for Children), will be 
presented in the final session.

Social events (a welcome cocktail on June 3, a Gala Dinner on the 
lake shores on June 4, and a closing reception at Villa del Grumello) 
will complement the scientific program and will be  a chance for 
participants to meet and discuss in the context of a gorgeous 
informal setting, and to build future collaborations.

We look forward to meeting you in Como!

Those on the list working with premodern texts may be interested in

TEI schema designed for encoding inscriptions, papyrus, and other
early texts).


*EpiDoc Training Sessions 2009*
*London 20-24 July*
*Rome 20-25 September*

The EpiDoc community has been developing protocols for the publication
of inscriptions, papyri, and other documentary Classical texts in
TEI-compliant XML: for details see the community website at

Over the last few years there has been increasing demand for training
by scholars wishing to use EpiDoc. We are delighted to be able to
announce two training workshops, which will be offered in 2009. Both
will be led by Dr Gabriel Bodard. These sessions will benefit scholars
working on Greek or Latin documents with an interest in developing
skills in the markup, encoding, and exploitation of digital editions.
Competence in Greek and/or Latin, and knowledge of the Leiden
Conventions will be assumed; no particular computer skills are

*London session,* 20-24 July 2009. This will take place at the Centre
for Computing in the Humanities, King’s College London, 26-29 Drury

employees of universities or other non-profit institutions; £200 for
employees of commercial institutions. Those interested in enrolling
should apply to Dr Bodard, gabriel.bodard at kcl.ac.uk by 20 June 2009.

We hope to be able to offer some follow-up internships after the
session, to enable participants to consolidate their experience under
supervision; please let us know if that would be of interest to you.

*Rome session,* 20-25 September 2009. This will take place at the
British School at Rome. Thanks to the generous support of the
International Association of Greek and Latin Epigraphy, the British
School and Terra Italia Onlus, attendance will be free.

Those interested in enrolling should apply to Dr Silvia Orlandi,
silvia.orlandi at uniroma1.it by 30 June 2009.

*Practical matters*
Both courses will run from Monday to Friday starting at 10.00 am and
ending at 16.00 each day.

Participants should bring a wireless-enabled laptop. You should
acquire and install a copy of Oxygen
(http://www.oxygenxml.com/download_oxygenxml_editor.html) *and* either
an educational licence ($48) or a 30-day trial licence (free). Don’t
worry if you don’t know how to use it!
