     *Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing
     International Conference*
     Washington DC
     July 14 - July 17, 2011

     *The Book in Art & Science*

     Sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, the Library of
     Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library and Institute, and the
     Corcoran College of Art + Design.

     This year's conference theme, the Book in Art & Science, is an
     appropriate opportunity to highlight SHARP's continuing commitment
     to digital humanities projects, tools or techniques or work in
     progress. This particular session encourages proposals from any
     college or university digital humanities program, center or group to
     present a poster that overviews their program. Posters may include a
     demonstration, traditional printed poster or a combination of both.

     A brief bio and short abstracts (250-300 words) should be submitted
     to Katherine D. Harris (katherine.harris at email.sjsu.edu
     <mailto:katherine.harris at email.sjsu.edu>) by November 15, 2010.
     Please include any technical requirements (e.g., Internet access).
     This panel will undergo the normal review procedure by the SHARP
     conference committee. One participant for each proposal must be a
     member of SHARP prior to the conference.

     Founded in 1991, the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading
     and Publishing is a global network of literary scholars, historians,
     librarians, booksellers, and publishing professionals. With more
     than 1,000 members in over 20 countries, SHARP works in concert with
     a number of affiliated scholarly organizations around the world to
     encourage the study of book history.

     Evoking Washington's status as an artistic and scientific center,
     "The Book in Art & Science" is a theme open to multiple
     interpretations. Besides prompting considerations of the book as a
     force in either art or science or the two fields working in tandem,
     it also encourages examinations of the scientific text; the book as
     a work of art; the art and science of manuscript, print, or digital
     textual production; the role of censorship and politics in the
     creation, production, distribution, or reception of particular
     scientific or artistic texts; the relationship between the verbal
     and the visual in works of art or science; art and science titles
     from the standpoint of publishing history or the histories of
     specific publishers; and much more.

Future of Robotics in Germany and Japan:
Intercultural Perspectives and technical Opportunities
11-12 November 2010
Technische Universität Dresden
Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft
Friedrich-List-Platz 1, D-01069 Dresden, Germany
Room Nr. Z 107


Today intercultural perspectives and exchange is taken place in many
disciplines of research. But do we recognize a robotic embedding of our
environment? How does robots influence, support and distract our daily 
lives? Are we able to trust in new technology in order of organizing a 
perspective? Japan is known as a nation of technological inventions and
wonders. How do they try to understand robotics? Known as an industrial
nation of Western Europe within an enormous potential of economic power
Germany has developed its production and environment built of robotic
systems. Which perspectives are given to reconsider not just consequences of
human’s life, but developing a cultural view of a whole mankind influencing
technology, while we can effort advantages or deal with its worse
consequences? This workshop has invited Asian and European scientists,
engineers and philosophers working on adequate perspectives to these
