2010 Annual Meeting of the TEI Consortium


  • Meeting dates: Thu 11 November to Sun 14 November, 2010
  • Workshop dates: Mon 08 November to Wed 10 November, 2010

The Program Committee of the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium invites individual paper proposals, panel sessions, poster sessions, and tool demonstrations particularly, but not exclusively, on digital texts, language resources and any topic that applies TEI to its research.

Submission Topics

Topics might include but are not restricted to:

  • TEI and natural language processing
  • TEI and language resources
  • Analyzing and quantifying encoded texts
  • Aggregation and compilation
  • Integrating the TEI with other technologies and standards
  • Tools that create and process TEI data
  • TEI used in conjunction with other technologies and standards
  • TEI as:
    • metadata standard
    • interchange format: sharing, mapping, and migrating data

In addition, we are seeking micropaper proposals for 5 minute presentations on how you applied TEI.

Submission Types

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
  • 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.

Micropapers will be allocated 5 minutes.

Submission Procedure

All proposals should be submitted at http://www.tei-c.org/conftool/ by May 1st, 2010.

You will need to create an account (i.e., username and password) in order to file a submission. For each submission, you may upload files to the system after you have completed filling out demographic data and the abstract.

  • Individual paper or poster session proposals (including tool demonstrations):
    • Please submit a brief abstract (no more than 500 words) in the “Abstract” field.
    • Supporting materials (including graphics, multimedia, etc., or even a copy of the complete paper) may be uploaded after the initial abstract is submitted.
  • Micropaper:
    • The procedure is the same as for an individual paper, however the abstract should be no more than 300 words, but may be as short as the name of the feature.
    • Please be sure the abstract mentions the feature to be presented!
  • Panel sessions:
    • The panel organizer submits an abstract for the entire session, listing the proposed papers, and explaining the organizing theme and rationale for the inclusion of the papers in no more than 500 words in the “Abstract” field.
    • The panel members each submit a separate complete individual paper proposal; see above.

The program committee reserves the right to accept papers submitted as part of a panel without accepting the whole panel.

All proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and selected external reviewers.

Those interested in holding working paper sessions outside the meeting session tracks should contact the meeting organizers at meeting@tei-c.org to schedule a room.

Please send queries to meeting@tei-c.org.

Conference submissions will be considered for conference proceedings. Further details on the submission process will be forthcoming.
