Scholars Engaged in Electronic Resources
In a business meeting which took place during the ICANAS congress
(International Congress on Asian and North African Studies)
at Budapest on We., 9th of July 1997, an informal group of scholars
established itself with the aim of promoting and coordinating further
efforts in the development and spreading of electronic resources
of all kinds relating to Asia and adjacent areas.
The first tasks that are to be undertaken in order to reach this aim
may be summarized as follows:
- a) Finding an adequate name for the group ("SEER" is but a proposal:
"Scholars Engaged in Electronic Resources")
- b) Establishing a mailing system as a basis for exchange of informations
and data (linkage with the existing ASIANDOC list has been proposed);
- c) Establishing a WWW server site (to be mirrored anywhere) and an
electronic newsletter for the documentation of projects, methods and results.
The present page is a first step in this direction. We shall soon provide a
data entry form to collect data concerning activities, web-sites, etc. relating
to the objectives of the group. For the time being, informations to be included
can be sent via mail to Jost Gippert
using "SEER-Information" as the mail subject.
A of group members will take place within the
1999 EBTI, ECAI, SEER & PNC
Joint Meeting held in Taipei, Taiwan (Pacific Neighborhood Consortium,
co-hosted by Computing Centre, Academia Sinica and Computer Center, Ministry of
Education) which will take place in Taipei, Taiwan, January 18 - 21, 1999.
Several participants of the ICANAS have offered their help as volunteers.
Everybody who is interested in cooperating with the SEER group
or to be a volunteer is invited to send comments, proposals and the like
to the mail address given below (for all messages relating to this issue,
please use the mail subject "SEER").
