The TEI Members’ Meeting
1-3 November 2007
University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, USA
*TEI@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@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.
/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
