        Subject: IDE meets DiXiT Spring School 2015 - Advanced XML/TEI technologies

Dear Humanists,

We are very pleased to announce the Spring School on Advanced XML/TEI
technologies for Digital Scholarly Editions organized and endorsed by the
the Institute for Documentology and Digital Editing (IDE) and the Digital
Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network (DiXiT). The spring school will
be run and held at the at the Centre for Information Modelling – Austrian
Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Graz from 13th to 17th
April 2015.

The spring school is directed to participants with previous experience in
XML/TEI editing who would like to involve themselves more intensively with
the creation of digital scholarly editions based on the international
encoding standard XML TEI P5. Besides addressing specific issues and use
cases of text encoding, the participants will be trained what to do with
the data once the encoding is done and how to process it further until the
publication on the WWW. To this end the teaching will strongly focus on
XPath, XSLT, HTML and CSS as technologies for the web publication of
digital scholarly editions.

Since the level of this spring school is advanced, previous knowledge of
TEI practices is not only recommended but necessary for participation.

The lectures will be held by experts from the field of Digital Scholarly
Editing, related to the DiXiT network or the IDE (James Cummings, Franz
Fischer, Ulrike Henny, Frederike Neuber, Torsten Schaßan, Martina Semlak,
Magdalena Turska, Gunter Vasold, Georg Vogeler). Tara Andrews (Univ. of
Bern) has agreed to give a keynote.

The School will cover the following areas:

   - issues when working with XML TEI P5 (to be proposed by the
   - customization of the TEI schema
   - creating web pages with HTML/CSS and JavaScript and JQuery
   - transforming the TEI XML with XSLT/XPath
   - publishing frameworks for digital scholarly editions
   - use cases for research on and with digital scholarly editions

The IDE-meets-DiXiT Spring School on Advanced XML/TEI technologies for
Digital Scholarly Editions is open to interested scholars anywhere in the
world with previous experience in digital scholarly editing with the TEI.
As the course will strongly focus on practical exercise, we can accept only
applications which can bring own material for the exercises. All teaching
will be in English.

The course offers 20 positions. Participants will be required to arrange
their own accommodation and travel to Graz. The participation fee will be
100 EUR. A limited number of bursaries will be available for the
