HomeAnnual Conference and Members’ Meeting of the TEI Consortium (2013)

*  *  *

Published on Friday, February 22, 2013


The Text Encoding Initiative's annual conference and members' meeting is the gathering point for the TEI community. It offers an opportunity to meet with colleagues, learn about new projects, share research, and find out about new developments in the TEI. Originally structured around the annual TEI business meeting and election, the event has more recently expanded to include a full academic conference program with peer-reviewed papers, posters, tool demonstrations, and meetings of the TEI special interest groups. The conference and members' meeting is also and excellent opportunity for businesses and other organisations in the Digital Humanities community to reach active researchers through sponsorship and other support activities.

Please submit your proposals by March 30, 2013.

  • Individual paper or poster proposals (including tool demonstrations): Supporting materials (including graphics, multimedia, etc., or even a copy of the complete paper) may be uploaded after the initial abstract is submitted. Submission should be made in the form of an abstract of 750-1500 words (plus bibliography).

  • Panel sessions (three paper panels): The panel organizer submits a proposal for the entire session, containing a 500-word introduction explaining the overarching theme and rationale for the inclusion of the papers, together with a 750-1500 words section for each panel member.
  • Panel sessions (round table discussion): The panel organizer submits a proposal of 750-1500 words describing the rationale for the discussion and includes the list of panelists. Panelists need to be contacted by the panel organizer and have expressed their willingness in participation before submission.

All proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and selected external reviewers.

Those interested in holding working paper sessions outside the meeting session tracks should contact the meeting organizers at meeting@tei-c.org to schedule a room.

Please send queries to meeting@tei-c.org.

Conference submissions will be considered for conference proceedings, edited as a special issue of the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative. Further details on the submission process will be forthcoming.

Call for Workshops and Tutorials

The Programme Committee of the 2013 Annual Conference and Members Meeting of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI –http://www.tei-c.org) Consortium invites proposals for educational tutorials or workshops to precede the conference.

The goal of the tutorials is to give an opportunity to learn more about the use of TEI markup under the guidance of experienced instructors and practitioners, whereas workshops are an opportunity for specific groups to meet and work together on a TEI related subject.

Workshops and tutorials range in length from a single morning or afternoon to a maximum of two days. Tutorials are run on a cost-recovery basis: a separate fee is charged of participants that is intended to cover the costs of running the tutorial. Workshops are expected to be free of charges.

Submission guidelines

If you are interested in proposing either a workshop or a tutorial for the 2013 Members’ Meeting and Conference, please contact meeting@tei-c.org as early as possible and submit your proposal

before 30 March 2013

via Conftool, the availability of which will be announced shortly. Expressions of interest should include as much as possible of the following information (the committee is willing to work with proposers in developing their proposals):

  • Topic
  • Rationale explaining why this topic is likely to draw sufficient attention of the TEI community
  • Length of the event
  • Infrastructural requirements
  • (In the case of a tutorial)
    • Proposed instructor or slate of instructors including brief discussion of relevant experience
    • Preliminary budget of your anticipated costs (if any)
  • (In the case of a workshop)
    • Core list of people who are likely to participate, keeping in mind that workshops are by essence open for participation
    • Organisational and infrastructure costs (e.g. coffee breaks and the like) will be determined later in conjunction with the local organising committee

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated by the programme committee primarily on the basis of their likely appeal to the TEI community, the quality of the proposed instructors and method of instruction, and cost.
Please send queries to meeting@tei-c.org.
