         Subject: Call for Posters, TEI Members' meeting, Sofia

The TEI Consortium is happy to announce that a poster session/tool
demonstration has been added to the program of this year's members'
meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria on October 28 and 29th. The poster session
will take place the morning of the second day of the meeting, Saturday,
October 29th. In addition to the poster session on Saturday, some poster
presenters will be offered to give a short talk about their poster at
the member's meeting on Friday, October 28th during the "10 Minutes of
Fame" session.

The topic of a poster can be a current project you are working on using
TEI encoding, a tool developed for the production or dissemination of
TEI-encoded texts, or any TEI-related topic you feel would be of benefit
to the community. The poster can be a traditional printed poster or a
demonstration on a computer. Unfortunately the TEI cannot fund the
travel, lodging, or meals for poster presenters. The local organizer can
provide a flip chart and a table for each presenter but Internet access
has not yet been confirmed, so keep that in mind when proposing your poster.

If you wish to present a poster or tool demonstration at the members'
meeting in Sofia, please send a brief proposal (500 -750 words)
describing your project to the program chair
(matthew.zimmerman_at_nyu.edu). Deadline for proposals is Friday, September
15th, 2005. The proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and
successful applicants will be notified by September 30th, 2005 and given
further information about presenting.

For more information on the 2005 TEI Members' meeting, please see
