    The Center for Hellenic Studies invites applications for a Summer Workshop
    on Electronic Publication, to be held in Washington DC from June 23 through
    June 29, 2003.

    The workshop will allow Classicists at any stage of their careers to spend
    a week exploring new technologies, learning best practices, and sharing
    ideas with each other, the CHS faculty and staff, and invited leaders in
    the field of electronic publication in Classics.

    The focus of the week will be the promise of XML, TEI standards for marking
    up humanistic texts, ways of bringing XML to readers via the web, the
    Unicode standard for Greek, and building interrelationships between
    projects toward a distributed and networked library for Classics.

    Persons interested in attending should have some initial awareness of the
    basic technologies used for online publication and an interest in expanding
    their knowledge via some particular project.

    The CHS will provide housing for the week, all breakfasts and lunches, a
    reception at the outset, one formal dinner, and some informal dinners;
    participants should expect to provide some dinners for themselves.

    The CHS cannot provide travel funds, for which participants are asked to
    apply to their home institutions. Under extraordinary circumstances,
    however, the CHS may be able to contribute to travel expenses.

    Interested scholars should send a letter of application and CV by e-mail
    (with "Summer Workshop" in the subject-line, please) to Ross Scaife
    (scaife@uky.edu) by February 12th, 2003. The letter should explain the
    applicant's reason for applying. This explanation can be more or less
    specific, but should focus on a desire to do serious work with texts in
    electronic media; the texts in question can be primary sources or secondary
    works of scholarship, but should not be limited to use in the classroom.

    Applicants should expect to hear back from the Center by March 1, 2003.

    Upon acceptance, the CHS will provide a formal letter of invitation that
    may help secure funding from home institutions.

    Please forward this announcement to anyone who may be interested.
