Subject: CALL : TEI Workshop at DL'96

* Call for Participation *


The Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines
Application to Building Digitial Libraries


Held in conjunction with

Digital Libraries'96
First ACM International Conference On Digital Libraries


The Text Encoding Initiative's (TEI) Guidelines for Electronic Text
Encoding and Interchange provide an extensive SGML-based scheme for
encoding electronic texts across a wide spectrum of text types and suitable
for any kind of application. Released in spring of 1994, the Guidelines
have already achieved wide-scale implementation in projects throughout
North America and Europe. This workshop is intended to provide a forum for
technical discussion and evaluation of the TEI Guidelines, as they have so
far been implemented in real applications, particularly those which have
relevance for building digital libraries.

This call solicits papers for a one-day workshop, to be held in conjunction
with Digital Libraries '96. The program will consist of several paper
presentations together with substantial time for discussion.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- reports on the use of the TEI scheme for a particular application, with a
focus on evaluation of the scheme to serve application needs

- technical discussion of particular encoding problems and (TEI or non-TEI)
solutions, for example, handling unusual or complex text types, multi-
media, multiple views or information types, multi-lingual data, etc.

- customization and extension of the TEI for particular applications and
text types, including proposals for use in the building of digital

- assessment, evaluation of the TEI DTD architecture, especially as it
serves the needs of building digital libraries

- technical and practical consideration for the design of tools to handle
documents encoded using the TEI or SGML generally

We also invite participation in the workshop by those who may not present a
paper, but who wish to be involved in discussion.
