1. About the Workshop

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and developers
who are interested in exchanging new ideas and presenting results of the
field of information retrieval, with an emphasis on the issues related to
Asian languages and multi-lingual issues.The first International Workshop
was held with the name "Information Retrieval with Oriental Languages" on

***** ABSTRACTS DUE AUGUST 20!!! *****



November 14-16, 1997
Brown University
Providence, Rhode Island, USA

Sponsored by

Brown University Computing and Information Services
Brown University Libraries

- o -

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

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:

o reports on the use of the TEI scheme in a particular project
or in a particular application area or discipline

o reports from particular user communities such as the builders and
designers of electronic text centers, digital libraries, language
corpora, electronic editions, multi-media databases, etc.

o evaluations of the TEI scheme as applied to a particular class of
texts or in a particular type of scholarly research

o technical discussions of particular encoding problems and solutions
such as unusual or complex text types, multi-media, multiple views
or information types, multi-lingual data and internationalization,
textual variation, overlap, etc.

o papers on customization and extension of the TEI for particular
application areas and text types

o reports on experience using off-the-shelf software with TEI
documents, or developing software to handle TEI material

o discussions of markup theory and markup architectures, with
particular reference to the TEI

o discussions of the TEI in the light of developments in the larger
computing community (the Web, XML, ...)

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


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

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.
