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 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

  • TEI tools for analysis, publication, and infrastructures

Dear TEI Community,

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