More details, the Conference Programme and registration
form can be found at the AHC-2001 Conference Web site:
Information processing technology has been used by avantgarde
historians for half a century but it is only in recent years
that practically all members of the historical community
started to perceive the Computer as an indispensable tool and
the Internet as a new publishing medium and a virtual library.
This new situation that historians have to face must be
reflected in parallel evolution of historical methodologies
and the philosophy of history itself. The XVth International
Conference of the Association for History and Computing will
provide a forum to discuss these issues as seen through
different approaches to history and from different research
perspectives. It is hard to visualise the Post-Millennial
Historian without a computer as his/her main research tool, so
the methodological issues discussed will have considerable
importance for the future of historical scholarship as a whole.
Registration and Conference fee must be received by July 15th.
Students requesting the AHC sponsored reduced fee should
supply their professors' opinion by July 1st at the latest.
All registrations should be submitted electronically via
the Conference Web site:
