TEI 2010 Conference, Meeting, and Workshops: Registration opens

Registration for the 2010 TEI Conference, Members Meeting, and Workshops 
is now open at http://www.tei-shop.org/. The meeting will take place 
November 11-14 at the University of Zadar, Zadar Croatia. Pre-conference 
Workshops will be held November 8-10. See the conference website: 

The theme of the conference is “TEI Applied: Digital Texts and Language 
Resources,” though papers and posters on other subjects are also included.

The conference programme includes two keynote lectures, twenty-one 
regular papers in parallel sessions (with additional space being held 
back for our September call for “late breaking” papers), numerous 
posters and demos, and a number of five minute micro-paper+poster 
demonstrations of the use of TEI XML. And of course there will be the 
TEI’s famous “poster-slam” where presenters have one minute to discuss 
their paper in a plenary session, will also be held. The annual TEI 
members meeting will be held at this conference and the results of the 
annual election for board and council will be announced.

Our keynote speakers for 2010 are

    * *Tomaž Erjavec* (Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia)
    * *Ian Gregory* (Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK)

The conference will be preceded by seven intensive workshops, led by 
many of the most significant members of the TEI and wider markup 
communities including

    * *C. M. Sperberg-McQueen* on XQuery and XForms
    * *Norm Walsh* on XProc
    * *The TEI at Oxford team (Lou Burnard, Sebastian Rahtz, James
      Cummings)* on the TEI ODD Metalanguage (Introduction and Advanced 
    * *Elena Pierazzo and Malte Rehbein* on the TEI’s new proposal for
      Module for the Transcription of Genetic Documents
    * *Andreas Witt, Thomas Schmidt, Hanna Hedeland, Timm Lehmberg* on
      the use of TEI for Speech Transcription

In keeping with the relevance of this line up to the wider community, 
the TEI is for the first time also offering a special commercial rate on 
its workshops and conference registration in addition to its usual 
Academic and heavily discounted member/subscriber and student/retired 
rates. In addition to individual registration prices, a 3-day pass is 
also available allowing attendance at any workshops over the 
pre-conference period for a 15% discount.

/A 20% early registration discount for workshops (15% for conference 
registration) is available for registrations before September 8, 2010. 
Members and subscribers are eligible for up to an additional 50% 
discount on conference registration and workshops/.
