Text Encoding Initiative
Tenth Anniversary User Conference

Call for Papers

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of its founding, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) is sponsoring its first user conference, to be held 14-16 November 1997 at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

The TEI was established at an international planning meeting on text encoding standards, held at Vassar College on November 12-13, 1987. The TEI is sponsored by the Association for Computers and the Humanities, the Association for Computational Linguistics, and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing.

The TEI Guidelines for Electronic Text Encoding and Interchange were published in spring of 1994. They provide an extensive SGML-based scheme for encoding electronic texts across a wide spectrum of text types and suitable for any kind of application. The Guidelines have already achieved wide-scale implementation in projects throughout North America and Europe.

The TEI conference will bring together users of the TEI Guidelines in order to share ideas, experiences, and expertise, provide a forum for technical discussion and evaluation of the Guidelines as they have been implemented across a variety of applications. The topics include but are not limited to:

A portion of the conference will also be devoted to consideration of the future of the TEI. Possible topics to be discussed include the organization of the project, membership on the component committees, priorities, and new work items to be proposed to the Technical Review Committee.


Submissions of at least 1500 words should be sent by August 20, 1997. Email submissions or a URL where the submission can be retrieved should be sent to tei10@stg.brown.edu. Submissions in TEI Lite are preferred, but full TEI or (valid!) HTML 3.2 is acceptable. If it is not possible to submit in one of these forms, please contact tei10_program@stg.brown.edu to make special arrangements.

Papers should include complete references to related work and should clearly identify the main problem being addressed, other similar projects and their relation to this project, the main and original contribution of the paper, and remaining or open problems. Authors are also asked to indicate if this paper is or will be submitted elsewhere.

Notification of acceptance will be made by September 20, 1997. Final versions of full papers will be due by October 15, 1997. An electronic conference proceedings will be published; other publication details will be forthcoming.
