2011 TEI Conference in Würzburg 10-16 October

It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that the 2011 TEI Conference and Members Meeting will be hosted by the University of Würzburg and its Centre for Digital Editing in cooperation with the German Archive of Literature / Museum of Modern Literature Marbach.

The proposed conference dates are 10-16 October 2011.

The conference programme committee and local organisation will be led by Laurent Romary for the TEI and Fotis Jannidis, Roland Kamzelak (German Archive of Literature Marbach), Malte Rehbein (manager), and Werner Wegstein for the local organisation.

The specific wording of the theme of the conference is to be determined by the committee and will appear in the call for papers. But it should include an emphasis on digital editing in keeping with the emphasis of the Centre at the University. As always papers on all aspects of markup will be considered.

As part of the planning for the conference, the local organisers intend to offer delegates an excursion to Marbach to visit the German Archive of Literature, the Schiller Museum (Marbach is the birthplace of Friedrich Schiller), and the Museum of Modern Literature. Special rates have already been negotiated with local hotels.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
