Call for Papers: TEI Members’ Meeting and Conference 2015

Text Encoding Initiative: connect, animate, innovate

2015 Annual Members’ Meeting and Conference of the TEI Consortium


Call for Papers, Panels, Posters, and Demonstrations

28–31 October 2015

Lyon, France

Deadline: Monday 4 May 2015

Submissions: https://www.conftool.net/tei2015/


We invite proposals for individual papers, panel sessions, posters, and demonstrations for the 15th annual Conference and Members’ Meeting of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium (TEI—http://www.tei-c.org).


The power of the TEI is realized in interactions, between texts, between programs, between practices, and between members of its community. This theme invites considerations of technical and social applications and approaches, both to the practice of encoding and to the development of local and international communities of use. It includes training in the TEI and related areas, for example incorporating the digital into traditional forms of editing. It addresses integration of TEI-encoded texts at scale, for example in libraries and large corpora, and acknowledges that new research questions and external developments require continuous innovation.


Possible Topics

This list is not exclusive.

  • Connecting the TEI
    • TEI across corpora, languages, and cultures
    • TEI, formal ontologies and the Semantic Web
    • TEI and beyond: interactions, interchange, integrations and interoperability
    • TEI in galleries, libraries, archives, and museums
  • Animating the TEI
    • TEI outreach, within and between communities of practice
    • TEI, editors, readers, collaborators
    • TEI and sustainability
    • TEI and visualization
  • Innovating with the TEI
  • TEI tools for analysis, publication, and infrastructures
  • TEI environments
  • TEI at scale
  • TEI, refinement, simplification, and extension

Submissions

All submissions should include a title, the abstract(s), a brief biography of all the author(s)/speaker(s), and up to five keywords.


Word counts apply to the text of the abstract, excluding titles, biographies and keywords.

Individual papers

Speakers will be given 30 minutes each: 20 minutes for presentation, and 10 minutes for discussion. Proposals should not exceed 300 words.

Panel sessions

Panels will be given 1.5 hours, which can be used flexibly to include, for example, 3 individual papers followed by questions, or a roundtable discussion. Panel proposals must include a list of speakers. Proposals for 3 papers should not exceed 3 x 300 words, plus a 200-word introduction. Proposals for discussion panels should not exceed 600 words.

Posters and demonstrations

A dedicated poster session will provide poster or tool presenters with tables, poster boards, and wireless Internet access. Proposals for posters or tool demonstrations should not exceed 300 words.

Workshop: Digital Text Editing and Knowledge Transfer, May 14th (London School of Advanced Study)

[Posted on behalf of Elli Bleeker by Paul O’Shea, Social Media Coordinator.]

Dear community,

We are pleased to announce a one-day workshop at the University of London School of Advanced Study (SAS) on sharing digital text editing training and teaching methods. The workshop takes place on May 14, 2015 and is organised and endorsed by NeDiMAH, DARIAH-RS, Erasmus +, and the DiXiT Network.

Over the past decades, those active in developing a range of digital scholarly editing practices have built up a large body of knowledge about digital tools and methods that enable the development, presentation, and analysis of digital texts. This has resulted in a wide variety of methods for teaching and training of text editing. However, those who have to adapt quickly to working in a digital scholarly editing environment are often not aware of these different training methods. As a consequence, they might be overlooking available resources, or even re-inventing the wheel.

The event will bring together teachers of digital editing with a group of people who have faced the need to learn more about this area, especially those working in commercial publishing as well as research projects. A number of key practitioners will be invited to discuss the core resources available for text editing, and how expertise can be shared more widely. Specifically, we are looking to see how the experience of those in academia who teach and research text editing can contribute to the development of a core set of training materials for those new to the field, and how we can have better knowledge transfer around digital text editing.

The underlying aim of the workshop is therefore to scope what is already available in terms of training materials, and to develop a methodology to assess different kinds of teaching material. This critical overview will assist the community in the further development of teaching material for text editing. As an output of the workshop, a basic and open curriculum will be developed and published as an online resource by NeDIMAH.

The workshop will be in English and is open to anyone interested in the field of text editing; some previous experience with text editing and/or teaching is required.  

Please register on the EventBrite page. A limited number of travel bursaries are available to postgraduates and early career researchers in countries that are part of the NeDiMAH network. If you wish to apply for a bursary, please contact the organisers through the online form before April 15.

With kind regards,

Lorna Hughes, School of Advanced Study, University of London

Elena Pierazzo, University of Grenoble

To all digital humanists or people working on digital humanities projects,

Please, save the date and join us for the annual Day of Digital Humanities that will take place on May 19th, 2015.

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is a project looking at a day in the work life of people involved in digital humanities computing. Every year it draws people from across the world together to document, with text and image, the events and activities of their day. The goal of the project is to weave together the journals of participants into a resource that seeks to answer, “Just what do digital humanists really do?”

Call for hosts: TEI Members’ Meeting and Conference for 2016

Dear TEI Community,

This is a public call for bids to host the annual TEI Members Meeting and conference for 2016.

The site of the meeting has typically alternated between Europe and North America, but that is not a fixed rule.
