First Call for Papers
We are pleased to invite submissions of abstracts for the El’Manuscript-2016 international conference on the creation and development of information systems for storage, description, processing, analysis, and publication of medieval and early modern handwritten and printed texts and documentary records. Any person involved in the creation or application of these resources—including researchers; instructors; staff of libraries, museums, and archives; programmers, and undergraduate and graduate students—is welcome to participate.
El’Manuscript-2016 is the sixth in a series of biennial international conferences entitled “Textual Heritage and Information Technologies” that brings together linguists, specialists in historical source criticism, IT specialists, and others involved with publishing and studying our textual heritage. Tutorial sessions are planned for the conference, along with lectures, workshops, demo and consultations that will allow practitioners to become familiar with various systems and methods for working with them.
The working languages of the 2016 conference are Lithuanian, English, and Russian, and papers presented at the conference will be published in a volume of proceedings and on the textualheritage.org website.
