Short description: 

There is no doubt today that computer science impacts strongly on literature. New forms have been created, works are abundant, and dynamic university has built a strong, specific field of research. The complexity of the field requires a multidisciplinary approach involving specialists in literature, communication, hypermedia, and the art.

Along with the development of this field, innovative educational activities to teach this literature are being developed. Thecomputer also offers powerful tools to transcribe and transmit in digital form works originally intended for other media. More generally, the relationship between computers and literature creates social benefits by offering new ways to read and write,a new "being together" around a work.

All these activities have been changing rapidly in recent years and the European workshop "Literature and Digital Society" aims to bring together researchers operating in different contexts and to federate them in a European network.
