New message with further details from Charles Ramble, IATS President :

IATS XIII Announcement
July 21-27, 2013 * Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

The Mongolian Academy of Sciences (MAS) in association with the Mongolian National University is very honoured to host the 13th Seminar of the International Association for Tibetan Studies (IATS) in Ulaanbaatar from Sunday 21st July to Saturday 27th July 2013. The joint convenors will be Dr S. Chuluun (Institute of History, MAS), Dr U. Bulag (University of Cambridge), and Dr Ulrike Roesler (University of Oxford). It is with great pleasure that we now extend this invitation for proposals for papers and panels.

The convenors will work with a number of co-sponsors in Mongolia including the Centre of Mongolian Buddhists, the National Library, the National Museum of Mongolian History, the National Archives, and others. The meeting will be held in the premises of the National University of Mongolia.

We will be pleased to cover the costs of infrastructure, conference lunches, two evening events with dinner, and transportation within Mongolia for all international participants, but regret that under the present economic situation we will be unable to offer funding for international travel and accommodation. Although we will of course try to secure further financial backing from other bodies, we urge you to make every effort to obtain independent funding.

Accommodation: There are various types of accommodation available in Ulaanbaatar, ranging from hotel rooms to student dormitories. We will negotiate very reasonable rates for members of IATS. An online booking service will be available from June 2012.

Registration fee: USD $250

An online registration system will be available shortly: information about the website will be circulated in due course.

Please note that the convenors, the president, and the secretary general of IATS, in consultation with the advisory board, would like to call the following points to the attention of all prospective participants:

1. Participants are generally required to present a paper. Papers will be subjected to a time limit of 20 minutes and may be presented in any of the four working languages of the IATS: English, Tibetan, French, and German. Exceptionally, a certain number of presentations in Mongolian will also be accepted on this occasion.

2. If you are proposing a panel, roundtable panel or workshop, you must submit a brief description (less than one page) by 1 October 2012.

3. Participants should not present papers that have been read at other conferences or published elsewhere. All papers should present the results of original research and should not simply be a restatement of material and data already available elsewhere in secondary literature. Papers should be based on the use of primary sources (written or oral) in original languages or should otherwise provide a substantial advance in the field of Tibetology.

4. All participants are required to submit an abstract of their papers.

a) Students attending an IATS seminar for the first time are asked to provide one letter of recommendation from a suitable faculty member at their institution and to submit a short curriculum vitae, listing publications and work.

b) All participants who will be attending for the first time or whose first IATS conference was the 12th seminar held at the University of British Columbia, including students, are also asked to submit a one-and-a-half-page abstract of their paper by 1 January 2013. This also applies to participants in roundtable panels or workshops.

c) All others are asked to send in a brief abstract (less than one page) by the same date.

d) All abstracts will be screened and papers may not be accepted if they are deemed not to conform to international standards of academic work.

e) Independent scholars are encouraged to submit papers.

5. Those who wish to attend only as observers, such as students, should submit a description of approximatelyone-and-a-half-pages of the current state of their work and research interests as well as a letter of recommendation from their academic institution by 1 January 2013. This also applies to independent scholars who may submit a letter of recommendation from an established Tibetologist.

6. Participants may organize round table panels or workshops on specific subjects, but it is their responsibility to contact others whom they would like to include and to keep the organizers informed about such plans. Those participating in a round table discussion should note that they cannot also present a paper in another session of the conference as well.

7. If you intend to participate in the 13th IATS seminar, please fill in your application and abstracts by 1 January 2013. Notice of acceptance/rejection will be sent by late February 2013.

8. If you are accepted as a participant in the 13th IATS seminar, it is absolutely necessary that your registration fee is received by 31 March 2013. We have to pay the seminar expenses in advance, well ahead of the actual event!

9. All participants are requested to organize their own visas and travel insurance. The Mongolian Academy of Sciences will not be responsible for any of these issues. Letters of invitation for visas will be provided if requested.

A dedicated website for the 13th Seminar will be created in due course. For general information about the IATS, and for announcements concerning the 13th Seminar, visit:

From the H-Buddhism list :

Digital Libraries, Archives, and Resources


Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for any duplicate postings. Following numerous submissions
and conferral with colleagues, we have decided to propose a second
session of the "Tibetan Information Technology" panel at the 13th
Seminar of the International Association for Tibetan Studies
conference in Ulaanbaatar (21 - 27 July 2013) entitled "Tibetan
Information Technology (II): Digital Libraries, Archives, and
Resources". Please find the Call-For-Papers (CFP) below.

We encourage anyone with an interest in Tibetan Information Technology
as it pertains to Digital Libraries, Archives, and Resources to
participate in this conference panel. The panel description is as
follows:

Tibetan Information Technology (II):
Digital Libraries, Archives, and Resources

This panel is effectively a continuation of the IATS-XII (Vancouver)
panel, "Tibetological Library and Archive Resources." Broadly
defined, it is intended as a venue or forum for the presentation and
discussion of digital libraries, archives, and online resources of use
and interest to scholars in Tibetan studies.

If you have research that you would like to present in this forum, we
would encourage you to look over the IATS-13 web site, read the CFP
(below), and contact the chairs (email given in CFP).

Please feel free to pass this message on to any colleagues or other
parties who might wish to participate in this conference panel.

Thank you,

Paul G. Hackett
Lauran Hartley
Susan Meinheit

Panel Chairs,

Tibetan Information Technology (II): Digital Libraries, Archives, and
Resources, IATS-XIII

===============================


CALL FOR PAPERS

IATS-XIII Tibetan Information Technology (II):
Digital Libraries, Archives, and Resources
July 21 - 27, 2013
Ulaanbaatar, MONGOLIA


This panel session covers a variety of topics related to digital
libraries, archives, and resources for Tibetan studies, and is
intended as a venue for the presentation and discussion of online
resources of use and interest to scholars of Tibetan and Buddhist
studies.

While the other session of this panel, Tibetan Information Technology
(I), focuses on technical issues central to digital resources and
research in Tibetan studies, this session is intended to showcase the
results of such research and related resources. Presentations in this
panel are less about the technical details of such initiatives and
more about the end-user experience and resources being made available
in a digital environment.

Presentations suitable for inclusion in this session of the panel fall
within three broadly defined areas of digital libraries, archives, and
resources:

1. Digital Library and Archive Presentations.

Presentation of currently functional online libraries and archives.

Such presentations would hopefully cover issues such as:

a. A statement of the nature and contents of the library or archive,

b. An overview of the research significance of the archive and its
relationship to any other physical or digital resources,

c. The design and structure of the digital library/archive reflecting
its intended use in accessing the content,

d. The state of its completeness and expectations of growth in content
and direction,

e. Concerns or issues of interest that arose in the digitization or
construction of the archive.

2. Digital Resource Presentations

Presentation of digital resources (other than libraries and
archives) constructed to provide supplementary or stand-alone
reference resources for library and archive collections, or to
explore alternate forms of research enabled by technology.


Such presentations would hopefully cover issues such as:

a. A statement of the nature and contents of the resource,

b. An overview of the questions the resource is designed to address or
the research it facilitates,

c. The design and structure of the online resource reflecting its
intended use in accessing the content,

d. The relationship of the resource to any other traditional or
digital projects,

e. The state of its completeness and expectations of growth in content
and direction,

f. Concerns or issues of interest that arose in the digitization or
construction of the resource.


3. Project Previews and Works-in-Progress

This category of submission enables presenters to make the scholarly
community aware of research projects being undertaken at their early
stages. Such presentations would be largely focused on project
conceptualization and sample demos, and could include solicitation for
participation and/or feedback on existing work-plans.

Submissions should include:

Author’s name
Affiliation (if any)
Proposed Paper Title
Type of Paper (library/archive, resource, work-in-progress)
Brief Abstract (300-400 words)


Please send copies of paper proposals to all three co-chairs:

Panel Chair, Paul G. Hackett <ph2046@columbia.edu>
Panel Chair, Lauran R. Hartley <lh2112@columbia.edu>
Panel Chair, Susan Meinheit <smei@loc.gov>

Note: Proposals are due by August 20, and will be accepted for their
relevance to the overall Panel goals. At the 12th Seminar, IATS
members were allowed to present on only one panel. Thus, if you are
also applying to another panel, we would appreciate your letting us
know the panel name and contact information for the panel chair.

For general information, please refer to the IATS-XIII Conference
website at:

previous Tibetan IT Panels, see the IATS Tibetan IT webpages at:

A newer message from Dr Charles Ramble :


IATS XIII Submission of Abstracts


As you will have seen from the announcement of the Thirteenth Seminar of the IATS (http://www.iats.info/the-thirteenth-sem ... atar-2013/), the deadline for the submission of abstracts is 1 January 2013.

Acceptance of applications will take the form of a letter of invitation that will enable you to obtain a visa for Mongolia.

However, we realise that in the case of applicants from certain countries, a letter of acceptance from the IATS may be required in order for you to obtain a passport, in which case the 1 January deadline may not give you adequate time.

For applicants who are in this situation, we suggest that you submit your application and abstract by 1 October 2012, and if the review is favourable, you will be sent a letter of acceptance in November 2012.

If you have questions, please contact the organizers: iats2013@innerasiaresearch.org
