Call for Bids: TEI Members Meeting, 2006
Deadline: August 1, 2005

The annual TEI Members' Meeting takes place every year in October or
November. We are now seeking bids to host this event in 2006.

The meeting this year (2005) will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria on October
28-29. The previous meetings have

Baltimore, USA, October 22-23, 2004, hosted by Johns Hopkins University
Nancy, France, November 7-8 2003, hosted by ATILF.
Chicago, USA, October 11-12 2002, hosted by the Newberry Library and
Northwestern University.
Pisa, Italy, November 16-17 2001, hosted by the University of Pisa.

The site of the meeting has typically alternated between Europe and North
America, but that is not a fixed rule. We welcome proposals from other
parts of the world, and in particular from areas where new TEI communities
are arising.

The meeting is a two-day event, with approximately 70-100 attendees. The
first day is usually an open day with attendance open to all interested
parties and an eclectic mix of presentations and discussions from invited
speakers and participants. The second day is usually a closed session,
restricted to TEI members and subscribers only, which includes reports on
the TEI's work and the annual elections for the TEI Board and Council.
Meetings of TEI Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are usually also scheduled
for this day.

The TEI Consortium covers the direct costs in connection with the meeting,
but TEI is an organisation with limited financial resources, and any
contribution from the host is very welcome.

Bids should be sent to info_at_tei-c.org by August 1, 2005, and should include
the following information:

The name of the institution(s) making the bid
The name, address, email, and telephone number of the contact person
A brief description of the facilities available for the event (rooms,
equipment, technical support, food)
An indication of what financial support, if any, the hosting institution is
prepared to give (for instance, sponsoring a reception or a pre-meeting
workshop; payment of travel expenses for a plenary speaker; etc.)
Any other details that may be useful in assessing the bid (e.g. the
presence of a conference on a related topic at the institution around the
time of the meeting; the launch of a new TEI-related initiative at the
institution, etc.).

All bids will be reviewed by the TEI board, which makes the final decision.

Thank you very much!
