Text Encoding in the Era of Mass
Digitization: 2009 Conference and Members’ Meeting of the TEI Consortium
November 11-15, 2009. University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Traditionally, the
TEI Conference and Members’ Meeting has been preceded by educational workshops.
The goal of these workshops is to give members of the TEI community an
opportunity to learn more about the use of the TEI markup under the guidance of
experienced instructors and practitioners. In the past such workshops have
ranged from a basic introduction to the use of TEI markup to more specialized
sessions on specific aspects of the TEI or its use in specific domains. They
have ranged in length from a single morning or afternoon to a maximum of two
days. Workshops are run on a cost-recovery basis: a separate fee is charged of
participants that is intended to cover the costs of running the workshop.

We are now soliciting proposals for workshops for the 2009 Conference
and Members’ Meeting, to be held November 11-15 in Ann Arbor, Michigan (USA).

sessions, and Special Interest Group meetings. They should be educational in

segments of the TEI community […]
