TEI Annual Members' Meeting
Sofia, Bulgaria
October 28-29, 2005

This year's TEI members' meeting will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria,
October 28-29 hosted by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The first
day of the meeting is open to all registrants and will feature
invited speakers with substantive presentations related to the use
and development of the TEI. The morning of the second day is open to
all registrants and will consist of Special Interest Group meetings,
a poster session, and tools demonstration. The afternoon of the
second day is for members only and consists of the business meeting
and election. Members are reminded that only designated member
representatives (or proxies designated in advance of the meeting) can
vote in this election.

More details about the program, and information about lodging and
registration are available on the TEI-C website

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 addition to the poster session, some poster presenters
will be offered to give a short talk about their poster during a "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.

If you wish to present a poster or demonstrate a tool, 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. Successful applicants will be notified
by September 30th, 2005 and given further information about presenting then.

We strongly encourage all members of the TEI community (TEI members
and non-members alike) to attend the Members' Meeting. This year has
already been full of changes and new developments--to the Guidelines,
to the TEI web space, to the TEI hosts--and this year's meeting will
provide an opportunity to discuss them all and consider directions
for the year to come. It will also offer a chance to learn more about
the work that is being done in text encoding in eastern Europe.

If you'd like to attend the members-only portion of the meeting and
are not part of a TEI member institution, please consider joining the
TEI as a subscriber; the annual fee is US$50 per year. If you'd like
to get your institution to join but don't know where to start, just
email us at info_at_tei-c.org and we'll be glad to help.

In addition, the local organizers have asked us to mention a related
event which will be of interest to the TEI membership. Immediately
before the members meeting, there will be an international conference
and workshop held in Sofia on 24-27 October. The conference and
workshop are being organized by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
(the Institute of Bulgarian Language, the Institute of Literature,
the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, the Central Library of
BAS) and the Program Committee consists of Prof. Vassil Raynov,
Assoc. Prof. Maria Nisheva, Assoc. Prof. Dincho Krastev, Assoc. Prof.
Svetla Koeva, Assoc. Prof. Nikola Ikonomov, Assoc. Prof. Anissava
Miltenova (secretary).

Themes of the conference include applications of information
technologies in the humanities; computer processing of old and modern
Slavic languages and texts; description, analysis, and edition of
Slavic sources with computer tools; and electronic publishing. A
workshop for specialists and researchers on computational linguistics
and on the application of the TEI guidelines to electronic publishing
is included in the framework of the conference. Participants are
expected from more than fifteen countries in the workshop, with
lecturers from the United States, Great Britain, Denmark, Bulgaria,
and elsewhere.

For more information about the conference and workshop, please
contact Anissava Miltenova at anmilten_at_bas.bg or anmilten_at_yahoo.com.

We hope to see many of you in Bulgaria!

Best wishes,
