The Programme Committee of the TEI Members' Meeting invites individual paper proposals, panel sessions, poster sessions, and tool demonstrations particularly, but not exclusively, on the theme, broadly conceived, TEI: Supporting Cultural Heritage Research.
Topics might include but are not restricted to:
- TEI-based projects involving cultural heritage
- Using TEI to create:
- scholarly editions
- hybrid publications (digital and print)
- Tools that use TEI
- TEI used in conjunction with:
- different technologies
- other standards
- TEI as:
- metadata standard
- interchange format: sharing, mapping and migrating data
- TEI and its contribution to digital scholarship
- TEI and markup theory
In addition, we are seeking P5 micropaper proposals for 5 minute presentations on the topic My favourite (or least favourite) P5 feature, chapter, or addition.
Individual paper presentations will be allocated 30 minutes: 20 minutes for delivery, and 10 minutes for questions & answers.
Panel sessions will be allocated 1.5 hours and may be of varied formats, including:
- three paper panels: 3 papers on the same or related topics;
- working paper session: 3-6 papers circulated and read by the audience in advance, so the entire session is dedicated to discussion of and questions & answers about, the papers rather than presenting the papers;
- round table discussion: 3-6 presenters on a single theme. Ample time should be left for questions & answers after brief presentations.
Posters (including tool demonstrations) will be presented during the poster session. The local organizer will provide flip charts and tables for poster session/tool demonstration presenters, along with wireless internet access. Each poster will have the opportunity to participate in a slam immediately preceding the poster session.
P5 micropapers will be allocated 5 minutes.
All proposals should be submitted at http://www.tei-c.org/conftool/ by 30 April 2008.
