*2nd. International Meeting on Graphic Archaeology and Informatics,
Cultural Heritage and Innovation*

Cultural Center of Villa, La Rinconada
Roman City of Itálica
16-19 June 2009
Seville. Spain

On behalf of the Organisation Comittee of the **2nd International
Meeting on Graphic Archaeology and Informatics, Cultural Heritage and
Innovation ARQUEOLÓGICA 2.0,** it is a pleasure to invite colleagues
from all over the World to come to La Rinconada, Seville, Spain, from
16th to 19th June, 2010. This will be the second International meeting
held in Spain, where researchers from Archaeology and Graphics fields
will work together on Virtual Archaeology, concerning all its
posibilities. The participation of well-known researchers on this field
will shape a very interesting meeting.

*ARQUEOLÓGICA 2.0* will analize both the present and future of
reconstruction and computer aided render techniques, applied to
archaeological heritage and culture. The main aim is to offer an updated
overview about the Archeology of XXI Century: research and development
on virtual archaeology, performed and planned projects, new render
techniques, development of innovative methods and procedures.

Besides, it is also important to provide both the scientific community
and the related companies with a suitable meeting point, in order to
share the latest research projects and professional frameworks. Thus,
*ARQUEOLÓGICA 2.0* is the place to exchange ideas and information, as
well as seek for cooperation and chances of participation in common

The official languages are Spanish, English and Italian. Scientific
communications and lectures can be held in any of those three languages.
Simultaneous translation into Spanish and English will be provided at
all sessions.


Participants from any discipline are encouraged to contribute in order
to create an open forum for knowledge exchange and a fertile environment
for discussion relating to the topic of Graphic Archaeology and
Informatics, Cultural Heritage and Innovation.

Researchers or practitioners are invited to submit papers on original
work from within archaeology although contributions are particularly
encouraged from other disciplines which address and inform key issues in
the context of the following sub-themes:

Virtual reconstruction or virtual anastilosys
of archaeological heritage
Virtual and zoomed reality applied to Archaeology
3D digitalization of archaeological heritage
CAD tools on virtual Archaeology. Render techniques
Archaeological visualization
Applied theory of virtual archaeology
Virtual Archaeology and museums. Virtual museums and visits

The communications abstracts must fit within 120 text rows, in English
or Spanish, including pictures and images.

The complete communication paper will be submitted according to the
indications set up by the Scientific Committee, in maximum 6 DIN A4
pages, keeping to the previously delivered document template.

Call for Proposals


Canadian e-Learning Conference June 22-25, 2010 University of Alberta,
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada 

Deadline for Submissions: Jan 31, 2010
Notification: March 31, 2010
Submission URL: www.celc2010.ualberta.ca

Launched in 2003, the Canadian e-Learning Conference has developed into
an engaging venue for practitioners, instructors, administrators, and
students alike to share ideas and evidence on  technology enhanced
learning and teaching.  In 2010, in keeping with our conference theme of
"rEvolution," the conference comes full circle and returns to its origins at the
University of Alberta.

In choosing the word rEvolution to guide and define this year's
conference, we hope to inspire thinking on a number of fronts: on the
one hand, revolution is a marker of radical change, progress, and new
and innovative thinking; on the other, revolution speaks to the cyclical
nature of time and progress, where a full revolution (of a wheel, even
of the globe) brings us back to where we began.  Contained within
"revolution", and perhaps in contrast to the sense of radical and
fast-paced change, we find "evolution" which helps us to recognize that
change can happen incrementally and at a much more guarded and
methodical pace.  Each of these connotations gives us fruitful ways to
think through the relationships between and among teaching, learning,
discovery, and technology.

We invite you to submit a proposal to the 2010 conference program.  Like
e-Learning tools, the program is flexible and allows for innovation. 

Proposals must specify one of the conference formats listed below, and
are encouraged to engage with one of the key conference themes.

Conference Themes

Imagine the Possibilities
These presentations will focus on the near and distant futures of
e-Learning.  What will e-Learning be like in 20 years?  Tomorrow?  
Reality  Check
How feasible is innovation in e-Learning? What are the impacts of
current fiscal, administrative, political and educational realities on
the implementation of e-Learning?  These sessions should be rooted in
current realities and, where possible, based on evidence-based practice.

Keeping Our Feet on the Ground
"Teaching is teaching." How should the scholarship of teaching drive
developments in e-Learning?  What is the empirical evidence?  

We're Listening
We strongly encourage student presenters to share how they understand,
critique, and analyse their relationship to e-Learning.

Case Studies and Demonstrations
These sessions highlight specific experiences with e-Learning : specific
assignments, courses, or innovations.  We particularly encourage
submissions under the headings "My best failure" and "My greatest

DEFT 2010 - Appel à participation
~~ Où et quand un article de presse a-t-il été écrit ? ~~
Atelier d'évaluation en fouille de textes sur l'identification de la période
et du lieu de publication d'articles de presse francophone
Date de l¹atelier : 23 juillet 2010 (conjointement à TALN 2010)
Lieu : Montréal (Canada)
Site Internet : http://www.groupes.polymtl.ca/taln2010/deft.php
Contact : deft10 at limsi.fr
Cette campagne d'évaluation bénéficie du soutien de CEDROM-SNi,
du CNRTL et de ELDA.
DEFT2010, sixième édition de la campagne d'évaluation en fouille de textes,
portera sur les variations diachroniques et géographiques en corpus de
presse francophones. L'atelier de clôture se tiendra à Montréal dans le
cadre de la conférence TALN 2010.
Un locuteur francophone natif est capable de détecter dans une conversation
des expressions spécifiques à un pays (par exemple au niveau des nombres
"septante" et "nonante" en Belgique et en Suisse contre "soixante-dix et
"quatre-vingt-dix" en France et au Québec, et "huitante" en Suisse vs.
"quatre-vingts" dans les trois autres pays).
Un lecteur est également capable de mobiliser des connaissances
linguistiques, culturelles et historiques pour identifier la période (sur
une échelle plus ou moins grande) de parution d'un article (en identifiant
un événement particulier et/ou des tournures linguistiques ou des entités
nommées jugées représentatives d'une période donnée).
Comme tout acte de communication, les documents ont une origine et un public
visé ; leur nature, c'est-à-dire leurs contenu, niveaux de langue, etc. en
dépend fortement. Dans cette édition du défi fouille de textes, nous nous
intéressons à l'origine des documents, plus particulièrement à l'époque et
au lieu de leur création.
Dans ce cadre, nous proposons plusieurs pistes distinctes et indépendantes.
* Piste 1.
Cette piste, relative à la variation diachronique, concerne l'identification
de la décennie de publication d'extraits d'articles français d'une taille de
300 mots. Les extraits de ce corpus couvrent une période comprise entre 1800
et 1944.
Le corpus d'apprentissage se composera d'extraits (300 mots) d'articles de
quatre titres de journaux différents, le corpus de test intègrera des
extraits provenant de ces quatre mêmes titres plus un cinquième titre absent
du corpus d'apprentissage, de manière à éprouver la robustesse des systèmes.
* Piste 2.
L'identification de l'origine géographique de chaque document (pays
d'origine) constituera la seconde piste de cette campagne. Elle reposera sur
des corpus de presse rassemblant plusieurs titres provenant de France et du
Pour ces deux pistes, les participants auront la possibilité d'utiliser des
ressources externes (linguistiques, historiques, etc.) qu'ils devront
obligatoirement déclarer lors de la soumission des résultats. En ce qui
concerne plus spécifiquement la piste 1, les ressources provenant de Gallica
ne seront pas autorisées.
Nous invitons les participants à participer aux deux pistes. Il est
cependant possible de ne participer qu'à une seule des pistes.
Des corpus d'apprentissage seront fournis aux participants inscrits, à
partir du 26 février 2010. Ces corpus sont composés de 60% des corpus
d'origine. Les 40% de corpus restants seront utilisés pour le test. Le test
aura lieu sur une fenêtre d'un mois, à partir de la mi-mars.  À partir de la
date qu'ils auront choisie dans cet intervalle, les participants auront
trois jours pour appliquer, sur les corpus de test, les méthodes mises au
point sur les corpus d'apprentissage et nous retourner leurs résultats
Dates importantes :
- Inscription : à partir du 25 janvier 2010. Les équipes souhaitant
participer à DEFT 2010 devront s'inscrire à l'aide du formulaire en ligne et
signer les accords de mise à disposition des corpus.
- Diffusion des corpus d'apprentissage : 26 février 2010
- Test : au choix, 3 jours pris entre mi-mars et mi-avril 2010
- Atelier : le 23 juillet 2010 lors de la conférence TALN

Call for Papers http://www.jcdl-icadl2010.org/
Joint Conference on Digital Libraries JCDL 2010
June 21-25, 2010  Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Paper Submission Deadline Extended to February 1


The ACM/IEEE-CS Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) is the
major international research forum focused on digital libraries and
associated technical, practical, and social issues. JCDL encompasses the
many meanings of the term "digital libraries", including (but not
limited to) new forms of information institutions; operational
information systems with all manner of digital content; new means of
selecting, collecting, organizing, distributing, and evaluating digital
content; and theoretical models of information media, including document
genres and electronic publishing. Digital libraries are distinguished
from information retrieval systems because they include more types of
media, provide additional functionality and services, and include other
stages of the information life cycle, from creation through use. Digital
libraries can also be viewed as an extension of the services libraries
currently provide.

The theme of JCL 2010 is “Digital Libraries – 10 years past, 10 years
forward, a 2020 vision”. This theme reflects the fact that the context
in which digital libraries were originally conceived has significantly
changed in the context of new information models embodied in Web 2.0 and
popular social networking applications. In this spirit, we are
especially interested in papers that address and demonstrate new models
of collaborative, participatory information interaction increasingly
ubiquitous in the Web 2.0 context.

JCDL 2010 invites submissions of papers and proposals for posters,
demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops that will make the conference
an exciting and creative event to attend. As always, the conference
welcomes contributions from all the fields that intersect to enable
Digital Libraries. Topics include, but are not limited to:

•       Collaborative and participatory information environments
•       Cyberinfrastructure architectures, applications, and deployments
•       Data mining/extraction of structure from networked information
•       Digital library and Web Science curriculum development
•       Evaluation of online information environments
•       Impact and evaluation of digital information in education
•       Information policy and copyright law
•       Personal digital information management
•       Retrieval and browsing
•       Social networks and networked information
•       Social-technical perspectives of digital information
•       Studies of human factors in networked information
•       Systems, algorithms, and models for data preservation
•       Theoretical models of information interaction and organization
•       Visualization of large-scale information environments
