Call for contributions!

As a follow-on to Working with Text in a Digital Age, an NEH-funded 
Institute for Advanced Technologies in the Digital Humanities and in 
collaboration with the/Open Philology Project/ <www.dh.uni-leipzig.de>at 
the University of Leipzig, Tufts University announces a two-day workshop 
on publishing textual data that is available under an open license, that 
is structured for machine analysis as well as human inspection, and that 
is in a format that can be preserved over time. The purpose of this 
workshop is to establish specific guidelines for digital publications 
that publish and/or annotate textual sources from the human record. The 
registration for the workshop will be free but space will be limited. 
Some support for travel and expenses will be available. We particularly 
encourage contributions from students and early-career researchers.
Textual data can include digital versions of traditional critical 
editions and translations but such data also includes annotations that 
make traditional tasks (such as looking up or quoting a primary source) 
machine-actionable, annotations that may build upon print antecedents 
(e.g., dynamic indexes of places that can be used to generate maps and 
geospatial visualizations), and annotations that are only feasible in a 
digital space (such as alignments between source text and translation or 
exhaustive markup of morphology, syntax, and other linguistic features).
Contributions can be of two kinds:

1. Collectionsof textual data that conform to existing guidelines listed 
below. These collections must include a narrative description of their 
contents, how they were produced and what audiences and purposes they 
were designed to serve.

2. Contributions about formats for publication. These contributions must 
contain sufficient data to illustrate their advantages and to allow 
third parties to develop new materials.

All textual data must be submitted under a Creative Commons license. 
Where documents reflect a particular point of view by a particular 
author and where the original expression should for that reason not be 
changed, they may be distributed under a CC-BY-ND license. All other 
contributions must be distributed under a CC-BY-SA license. Most 
publications may contain data represented under both categories: the 
introduction to an edition or a data set, reflecting the reasons why one 
or more authors made a particular set of decisions, can be distributed 
under a CC-BY-ND license. All data sets (such as geospatial annotation, 
morphosyntactic analyses, reconstructed texts with textual notes, 
diplomatic editions, translations) should be published under a CC-BY-SA 

*Contributors should submit abstracts of up to 500 words toEasyChair 
We particularly welcome abstracts that describe data available already 
available under a Creative Commons license. *

January 1, 2014:  Submissions are due. Pleasesubmit via EasyChair 
January 20, 2014:  Notification.
