To cope with this problem a national conference has been organised at Rennes on the relation between history and information science and the development of multi-media systems, with lectures of Manfred Thaller and Frank Colson. The proceedings will be published by the university of Rennes. A similar conference is planned for next year in Nice. Mémoire Vive, whose editor is Caroline Bourlet, has published two issues devoted to the workshop on the European curriculum of historical computing, which was held last September in Paris. A large number of copies has been sold to non-members.
The French association has started a new service: provincial
universities are invited to suggest problems that need some
help. The association will send experts to these universities
to organise a local workshop. One hopes that this will be an
other instrument to harmonise life within the branch.
