Call for Papers

The TEI Members' Meeting
1-3 November 2007
University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, USA
TEI_at_20: 20 Years of Supporting the Digital Humanities

The Organizing Committee of this anniversary TEI Members' Meeting
invites individual paper proposals, panel sessions, and poster/tool
demonstrations on the theme, broadly conceived, 'The TEI_at_20: 20 Years
of Supporting the Digital Humanities'. Topics might include but are
not restricted to

     * Building and using tools for TEI-based text encoding
     * Teaching TEI: Challenges and Opportunities
     * TEI as a theory of text
     * TEI: the next 20 years
     * New career opportunities for those using the TEI
     * Lacunae and omissions: new directions for the TEI

Paper presenters will be allocated 30 minutes to speak, 25 minutes
for delivery, and five minutes for questions.

Alternatively, group sessions can be organized for 1.5 hours each and
may be of varied formats, including:

     * A working papers session (pre-circulated papers)
     * A round-table discussion
     * Software demonstrations

Of the formats described above, a working paper session might be more
appropriate for a smaller group, all of whom have all read the
pre-circulated papers in advance. This type of format may span more
than one session and will be held concurrently with the general session.

Submission Procedure

Individual paper proposals: submit a title, brief abstract (no more
than 500 words), the name of the presenter, institutional
affiliation, and email address.

Panel sessions: submit a session title, brief overview of the session
(no more than 300 words), abstracts of each of the papers (no more
than 500 words each) OR a 500 word abstract for a panel discussion,
the names of each of the participants, their institutional
affiliations, and email addresses.

Poster Session/Tool Demonstration: submit a title, brief abstract (no
more than 500 words), the name of the presenter, institutional
affiliation, and email address. The local organizer will provide a
flip chart and a table for each presenter, along with wireless
internet access. All poster session participants will have an
opportunity to participate in a poster slam immediacy preceding the
poster session/reception.

All submissions should be sent to Conference Chair, Sebastian Rahtz
<sebastian.rahtz[at]oucs.ox.ac.uk> by 6 April 2007.
