        Subject: winter school on LaTeX for critical editions

[my apologies for unavoidable crossposting]

dear all,
I am pleased to announce the "winter school on LaTeX for critical 
editions" which will be held in Vercelli, Università degli Studi del 
Piemonte Orientale, Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici, January 27-31 
2014. The school is endorsed by the italian Associazione per 
l'Informatica Umanistica e la Cultura Digitale (AIUCD) and by the 
European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH). The scientific 
committee is made by Raffaella Tabacco full professor of Latin 
literature and Maurizio Lana researcher of librarianship at Università 
del Piemonte Orientale; and Ermanno Malaspina, associate professor of 
Latin literature and Andrea Balbo researcher of Latin literature at 
Università di Torino.

The school which is aimed particularly but not exclusively to 
postgraduate and postdoc students will teach from scratch how to build a 
critical edition of a classical text (testbed made by 1 short Latin text 
with a small tradition - no more than 4-5 mss) using LaTeX so to have 
files ready for typographic printing: comparison of /mss/, /stemma/ 
generation, bibliography management, and so on. The school will be 
taught in English.

The lessons are divided between 2 days of general LaTeX which will be 
taught by Claudio Beccari (emeritus of Politecnico di Torino) of Gruppo 
utilizzatori Italiani di TeX (GuIT) and moderator of its forum; and 3 
days of philological LaTeX which will be taught by Guido Milanese (of 
Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano), an Italian scholar 
which uses LaTeX for textual studies.

There are 12 places available, enrollment is free, all the interested 
people should write to m.lana at lett.unipmn.it 
<mailto:m.lana at lett.unipmn.it> and attach a motivational letter which 
will be evaluated by the scientific committee should the requests exceed 
the available places. Deadline for the requests is January 10 2014. At 
the end of every section of the school (general LaTeX; philological 
LaTeX) the participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
[a note on 'split enrollment': it is possible to ask to enroll only for 
the 2 initial days on general LaTeX; enrollment for the 3 philological 
days only must be supported by proof of knowledge of at least basic LaTeX]

The five school days will offer some social events (visit to the 
Vercelli Book; evening/night in Turin for some wandering around in the 
young people places; ...).

Accommodation will be available in the university residence, and at an 
agreed price in a hotel in Vercelli. Practical details will be mailed to 
the attending people.

See you in Vercelli!
