The Board is pleased to announce a new benefit for individual members of the TEI-C and for staff at institutional members of the TEI Consortium.

The Program Committee is pleased to announce that ConfTool is now open to accept submissions for the 2017 Members Meeting and Conference of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium. The meeting will be held at the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada. Workshops are scheduled for November 11 and 12, with the conference on November 13-15.
The TEI Consortium (TEI-C) has created the Rahtz Prize for TEI Ingenuity in memory of Sebastian Rahtz, who contributed significantly to the TEI infrastructure. The award is intended to honour Sebastian’s noteworthy technical and philosophical contributions to the TEI, and to encourage innovation in the TEI community. The Rahtz Prize for TEI Ingenuity is awarded to an individual or team judged to have made a significant contribution to the TEI-C’s mission in particular by means of technical innovation. Many members of the TEI community are engaged in exploring new ways of implementing and expanding the coverage of the TEI encoding system. It is hoped that the Rahtz Prize will not only recognize excellent work already completed, but through its celebration and dissemination of nominated works also encourage new projects and fresh approaches. The recipient(s) of the 2017 award will receive $1,000 USD or equivalent.
The TEI community is encouraged to nominate prospective candidates for the Rahtz Prize. Self-nominations will also be accepted. You do not have to be a member of the TEI-C to make a nomination. The TEI community can also contact members of the Awards Panel to facilitate nominations: Gabriel Bodard (email@example.com), Hugh Cayless (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Michelle Dalmau (email@example.com).
Nominations should be submitted through a form, which requires contact information for the nominee, or nominees in the case of a team, a project title, and a brief statement for the nomination: https://goo.gl/forms/o7juxgAJIEAZSeVv2. Nominators will be asked to provide their name and contact details for the record and to ensure they are not robots. These data will not be published or otherwise shared.
The Award Panel will review the nominations and extend invitations for applications by 15 April 2017. Nominees interested in applying will need to submit their application materials by 15 June 2017. For more information about the Rahtz Prize, including the nomination and application process, consult: http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/rahtz.xml.
Nominations are due 1 April 2017 by midnight Hawaii/Aleutian Standard Time (HAST).

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.
