Call for proposals

TEI Applied: Digital Texts and Language Resources

2010 Annual Meeting of the TEI Consortium


 * Meeting venue: University of Zadar, Croatia
 * Meeting dates: Thu 11 November to Sun 14 November, 2010
 * Workshop dates: Mon 08 November to Wed 10 November, 2010

The Program Committee of the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Text Encoding
Initiative Consortium invites individual paper proposals, panel
sessions, poster sessions, and tool demonstrations particularly, but
not exclusively, on digital texts, language resources and any topic
that applies TEI to its research.

Submission Topics

Topics might include but are not restricted to:

    * TEI and natural language processing
    * TEI and language resources
    * Analyzing and quantifying encoded texts
    * Aggregation and compilation
    * Integrating the TEI with other technologies and standards
    * Tools that create and process TEI data
    * TEI used in conjunction with other technologies and standards
    * TEI as:
          o metadata standard
          o interchange format: sharing, mapping, and migrating data

In addition, we are seeking micropaper proposals for 5 minute
presentations on how you applied TEI.

Submission Types

Individual paper presentations will be allocated 30 minutes: 20
minutes for delivery, and 10 minutes for questions & answers.

Panel sessions will be allocated 1.5 hours and may be of varied
formats, including:

    * three paper panels: 3 papers on the same or related topics

    * round table discussion: 3-6 presenters on a single theme. Ample
      time should be left for questions & answers after brief

Posters (including tool demonstrations) will be presented during the
poster session. The local organizer will provide flip charts and
tables for poster session/tool demonstration presenters, along with
wireless internet access. Each poster will have the opportunity to
participate in a slam immediately preceding the poster session.

Micropapers will be allocated 5 minutes.

Submission Procedure

All proposals should be submitted at http://www.tei-c.org/conftool/ by
May 1st, 2010.

You will need to create an account (i.e., username and password) in
order to file a submission. For each submission, you may upload files
to the system after you have completed filling out demographic data
and the abstract.

    * Individual paper or poster session proposals (including tool

        o Please submit a brief abstract (no more than 500 words) in the
"Abstract" field.

        o Supporting materials (including graphics, multimedia,
          etc., or even a copy of the complete paper) may be uploaded
          after the initial abstract is submitted.

    * Micropaper:

        o The procedure is the same as for an individual paper,
          however the abstract should be no more than 300 words, but
          may be as short as the name of the feature.

        o Please be sure the abstract mentions the feature to be presented!

    * Panel sessions:

        o The panel organizer submits an abstract for the entire
          session, listing the proposed papers, and explaining the
          organizing theme and rationale for the inclusion of the
          papers in no more than 500 words in the "Abstract" field.

        o The panel members each submit a separate complete
          individual paper proposal; see above.

      The program committee reserves the right to accept papers
      submitted as part of a panel without accepting the whole panel.

All proposals will be reviewed by the program committee and selected
external reviewers.

Those interested in holding working paper sessions outside the meeting
session tracks should contact the meeting organizers at
meeting at tei-c.org to schedule a room.

Please send queries to meeting at tei-c.org.

Conference submissions will be considered for conference
proceedings. Further details on the submission process will be

                 16th International Conference on Logic for
             Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning

                           April 25 - May 1, 2010
                               Dakar, Senegal

The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial 
Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of 
the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, 
computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to 
present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to 
exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 16th 
edition will be held in Dakar, Senegal.

  In keeping with the tradition of LPAR, researchers and practioners are 
  encouraged submit short papers reporting on interesting work in progress or 
  providing system descriptions. They need not be original. Extended versions 
  of the short papers may be submitted concurrently with or after LPAR-16 to 
  another conference or a journal.

Logic is a fundamental organizing principle in nearly all areas in Computer 
Science. It runs a multifaceted gamut from the foundational to the applied. 
At one extreme, it underlies computability and complexity theory and the 
formal semantics of programming languages. At the other, it drives billions 
of gates every day in the digital circuits of processors of all kinds. Logic 
is in itself a powerful programming paradigm but it is also the quintessential 
specification language for anything ranging from real-time critical systems 
to networked infrastructures. Logical techniques link implementation and 
specification through formal methods such as automated theorem proving and 
model checking. Logic is also the stuff of knowledge representation and 
artificial intelligence. Because of its ubiquity, logic has acquired a 
central role in Computer Science education.
