A call for nominations to the TEI Board and Technical Council and for the TAPAS Advisory Board has been issued on TEI-L.
The 2016 TEI conference will be hosted by the Austrian Centre of Digital Humanities at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, September 28-30. The deadline for paper and poster submissions is May 15. Submit abstracts (no longer than 300 words) via ConfTool at https://www.conftool.net/tei2016/ , where you will find more precise instructions. If you submit your proposal well before the deadline you do us and yourself a favour. The Program Committee will notify you of its decisions no later than June 17.
Whatever the theme of a conference, people will submit what they are interested in: the conference will be what you want to make of it. We may want to give it a name once we know what the program looks like. In the meantime we will give equal attention to any submission plausibly related to the Text Encoding Initiative.
We will highlight the work of the Technical Council at this conference and have a plenary session exploring questions the council and membership may have for each other. “Whither TEI?” is a possible name for that particular session.
The conference will offer opportunities for pre-conference workshops on Monday and Tuesday, September 26-27. If you have such proposals write to firstname.lastname@example.org directly, preferably well before May 15. The program committee will review such proposals separately from conference submissions and discuss them with the Local Committee, because they involve both substantive and logistical issues.
A skeletal version of the conference site is now up at http://tei2016.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/ and will acquire more flesh as the weeks go by.
The hashtag for the conference is #teiconf2016. Feel free to share this information with anybody who might be interested in this event.
