Schematron Quick Fix support was already noticed by TEI users (see the message from Joel Kalvesmaki) – that is one of the highlights of version 17 – along with the user friendly messages provided by Schematron validation, you can annotate the Schematron schema also with recovery actions that will be presented to the user in order to automatically fix a reported problem.
Next Wednesday we have a webinar that presents this functionality, both from the user perspective and from the Schematron developer perspective, so please join us then in case you want to find more about quick fixes and Schematron quick fixes in particular:

This is a public call for bids to host the annual TEI Members Meeting and conference for 2016. Meetings have traditionally been held in the fall. The last two meetings were held in Rome (2013: http://digilab2.let.uniroma1.it/teiconf2013/) and Chicago (2014 http://tei.northwestern.edu/); this year it will be held in Lyon. The site of the meeting has typically alternated between Europe and North America, but that is not a fixed rule.
The TEI website includes a document about Hosting a TEI Conference and Members Meeting (http://members.tei-c.org/hosting
). It is a useful blueprint, but many of its details are subject to negotiation or the preferences of the local host. The details of it can be condensed as follows:

Hosted by the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH), Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany Organised by: Emily Franzini, Greta Franzini and Maria Moritz
The Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities will host a Hackathon targeted at students and researchers with a humanities background who wish to improve their computer skills by working with their own data-set.
