28–31 October 2015
Deadline: Monday 4 May 2015
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.
This list is not exclusive.
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.
Speakers will be given 30 minutes each: 20 minutes for presentation, and 10 minutes for discussion. Proposals should not exceed 300 words.
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.
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.
Workshops will be held before the conference, 26-27 October 2015. If you are interested in running a workshop at the Conference, please see the Call for Workshops.
If you are interested in holding a working group meeting during the Conference, please contact the local hosts to book a room, firstname.lastname@example.org.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 4 May 2015.

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.
