CFP: Text Encoding Initiative Conference
"At DH 2017 in Montreal, the Text Encoding Initiative received the Antonio Zampolli Prize in recognition of our thirtieth anniversary. Four years and a pandemic later, the TEI Guidelines remain a significant part of the digital humanities toolkit, with a strong focus on internationalization, both linguistic and geographic. From Japan to Argentina, Austria to Cameroon, we can cite multiple examples of workshops, graduate programs, and community-driven activities focused on the TEI Guidelines and their use.
Theme: Next Gen TEI
This year, the TEI-C will hold a shorter virtual version of our usual conference as our extended global community begins to recover from the pandemic. We wish to feature a forward-looking program, one that will help frame the next thirty years of the TEI.
Since we were unable to hold a conference in 2020, we feel a need to do so this year. At the same time, our members’ ability to travel is likely to remain restricted for the rest of 2021. Thus we have resolved to organize a virtual conference.
We invite submissions for presentations that consider any aspect of text encoding, with especial encouragement for submissions that address issues related to text encoding in international contexts, linguistic, cultural, and geographic. Abstracts may be submitted by individuals or groups; they should be no more than 300 words in length; they should outline the approach, challenge, and/or context in which text encoding is being applied; proposals may reflect upon subjects that are project-driven or methodological in nature.
Abstracts should be submitted via ConfTool: https://www.conftool.pro/tei2021 beginning immediately. Deadline for submissions is 31 July 2021.
Authors should anticipate that accepted work will be presented synchronously in a telecommunications conference format (concurrent sessions conducted in Zoom on Monday, 25 October, and on Wednesday, 27 October.
We realize that virtual conferences have certain limitations and present a variety of challenges. We will therefore make accepted presentations available on Zenodo between 15 and 25 October. We will also organize a social poster session in gather.town. More information about both opportunities will be forthcoming, and will be posted to this web page."
