***Call for Presentations and Participation***

Archiving Language Materials in Web-Accessible Databases: Ethical
Challenges

A parasession of the 9th annual Symposium About Language and Society -
Austin (SALSA).
Sunday, April 22nd, 2001, 1 pm - 5 pm at the University of Texas at
Austin.

In recent years, the emergence of new technology and standards has made
it possible to easily access electronic versions of textual and audio
materials stored in digital databases, using web browsers and free
internet-downloadable software. This has created an opportunity for
applying this new technology to the archiving, dissemination, and
analysis of linguistic materials. Language archives using this web-based
technology are now being launched, and it is necessary to consider the
ethical implications of these new preservation and dissemination
centers.

The purpose of this colloquium is to advance the discussion of the
ethical issues raised by these new language archives. The organizers
are especially interested in the ethical challenges raised by the use of
web-accessible archives for indigenous and endangered languages, but
presentations focused on other languages are also welcome.

Participants are invited to make a 10-minute presentation on the topic
of this colloquium, reflecting their own experience with traditional
archiving of language materials, the use of web-based infrastructure for
the archiving or dissemination of language materials, language research
in indigenous communities, and/or as a speaker of an indigenous or
endangered language.

Those interested in making presentations should send an abstract by
email to the following address: aillauts.cc.utexas.edu . Please
include the abstract in the main body of the email (not as an
attachment), and in the subject line of the email include the following:
"Colloquium Abstract, [Your Name]". For further information, email
aillauts.cc.utexas.edu .
Abstracts are due by Friday, March 23, 2001.

Registration for SALSA is required of colloquium participants; for more
