In my phd-project I plan to use pop-up web surveys on a couple of large online cultural heritage collections. Now I am looking for recommendations on software and web services that could be used for the surveys. Good or bad experiences, lessons learned and other tips are of interest.

Thanks in advance,

I just wanted to follow up on Jonathan Sterne's email here to say that his site's excellent and probably the best place for advice for cultural studies folk on the net. I'd highly recommend anyone go check it out, and applaud Jonathan's efforts in putting it together

> Since 1999, I have maintained a collection of web pages that provides links to useful resources for people on the academic job market in communication studies, though others in critical humanities fields may find the materials useful as well.  In recent years, I have added material on other aspects of professional life and will continue to do so.  You can find it at:

If you have a suggestion for a link or a document worth archiving, please email me at jonathan.sterne at mcgill.ca.  Please note that I do not post or keep track of job ads, nor am I particularly interested in promoting commercial services.  I intend to continue building the site, so suggestions for other areas to cover would be appreciated. There are also probably typos and other small errors on the new pages that need correction.

Hello All--I have a grad student, not a member of this list yet, who is interested in representations of nuclear war, as part of this interest, is researching the "Fallout" video game series.  He wonders if there's any existing scholarship that list members might point him to about 1) nuclear representations in video games, and 2) the need to teach video game literacy as either a subset of media literacy or a parallel to it. Any thoughts and suggestions much appreciated. AoIR is just around the corner!

Subject: [Air-L] Call for Participation: 'Bringing MT to the User:
	Research	Meets Translators' Third Joint EM+/CNGL Workshop (JEC2011)
	<A01DEBD9-51EE-41A2-AECC-CDCE6AFB8293 at ventsislavzhechev.eu>

?Bringing MT to the User: Research Meets Translators?
Third Joint EM+/CNGL Workshop (JEC 2011)
The EuroMatrixPlus Project (http://www.euromatrixplus.eu), the Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL) (http://cngl.ie), the Directorate-General for Translation (DGT, European Commission) (http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/translation) and Autodesk (http://www.autodesk.ch) are co-organising the Third Joint EM+/CNGL Workshop (JEC 2011), entitled ?Bringing MT to the User: Research Meets Translators?. 
The JEC 2011 workshop will be hosted by the Directorate General for Translation (DGT) (http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/translation) in Luxembourg on October 14th, 2011. In keeping with previous JECs, the format of the workshop is highly interactive with research paper presentations, invited talks and a panel discussion.

Attendance of the workshop is free. If you wish to participate, please register at http://web.me.com/emcnglworkshop/JEC2011/Registration.html

? Premise:
Recent years have seen a revolution in MT triggered by the emergence of statistical approaches and improvements in translation quality. MT (rule-based, statistical and hybrid) is now available for many languages for free (on the Web) or for a fee and MT technologies are making strong inroads into the corporate localisation and translation industries as well as large public and administrative organisations dealing with multi-lingual content. Open-source MT solutions are competing with proprietary products. Increasing numbers of (professional) translators are post-editing TM/MT output. MT is a reality for internet users accessing and gisting content which is not available in their native language.
At the same time, there has been a degree of disconnect between mainstream academic research and conferences on MT, often (and rightly so) focusing on algorithms to improve translation quality, and many of the important practical issues that need to be addressed to make MT maximally useful in real translation and localisation workflows, with human translators and users in general.

? Objectives:
JEC 2011 brings together translators, users, academic and industrial MT researchers and developers to discuss issues that are most important in real world industrial settings and applications involving MT, but currently under-represented in research circles.

? Invited Speakers:
Lucia Specia, RIILP, UK: "Quality Estimation for Machine Translation: Different Users, Different Needs"
J?rg Porsiel, Volkswagen, Germany: "Machine translation at Volkswagen"
Arle Lommel, GALA Global, USA: Panel Discussion Chair

? List of Accepted Papers for Oral Presentation:
1. "Online Self-Serve Access to State-of-the-Art SMT"
	Andy Way, Kenny Holden, Lee Ball and Gavin Wheeldon
2. "User-Focused Task-Oriented MT Evaluation for Wikis: A Case Study"
	Federico Gaspari, Antonio Toral, Sudip Kumar Naskar and Andy Way
3. "Towards Application of User-Tailored Machine Translation"
	Andrejs Vasi?jevs, Raivis Skadi?? and Inguna Skadi?a
4. "A Review of Machine Translation Tools from a Post-Editing Perspective"
	Lucas Vieira and Lucia Specia

? To be Confirmed for Oral Presentation:
5. "Putting Hybrid Machine Translation into Practice through Large-Scale Involvement of Human Translators in SomeProject"
	Christian Federmann, Aljoscha Burchardt, Maja Popovi?, David Vilar and Eleftherios Avramidis
6. "Using Statistical Machine Translation for Computer-Aided Translation at the European Commission"
	Andreas Eisele and Caroline Lavecchia
