Even imperfect technologies …

[23 August 2010]

The TEI has published a list of workshops to be offered at the TEI Members’ Meeting this November in Zadar, ed Croatia.

Together with Syd Bauman of Brown University, stuff I’m offering two tutorial workshops: one on XForms and one on XQuery. Each will last a day and a half, medicine and involve some talking heads, some group discussion, and as much hands-on work as we can manage.

There are several other very good workshops on offer: Norm Walsh on XProc, the TEI@Oxford team on the ODD system, Elena Pierazzo and Malte Rehbein on the encoding of genetic editions, and Andreas Witt et al. on TEI for transcriptions of speech.

The organizers remind me that there is an early-bird discount for those who register before 31 August. There is some chance that tutorials which fail to attract enough participants will be canceled if they don’t get enough registration, so if you definitely want to come, you definitely want to register early, to help make sure your tutorial has enough registrants to make the cut.
