        Subject: Final CfP: Standardisation and Innovation - European Academy of Management


The European Academy of Management are holding their annual conference
in Valencia, Spain (very nice place, btw) on 4 - 7 June 2014. This is
the first time that a track on 'Standardisation and Innovation' will be
a dedicated part of the conference (well, that's what we're aiming at).

Below you will find the CfP. The submission deadline is 16 January, so
you'd better start thinking (and writing) ....

You may find more information about the conference on
 http://www.euram-online.org/conference/2014/ .

Greetings from Aachen.


EURAM 2014:              Valencia
Track Number:	           06_01
Track Name: 	            Standardisation and Innovation
Special Interest Group: 	Innovation

By now, many academics, policy makers and practitioners have accepted
that standardisation is not the adversary of innovation as which it has
been portrayed until not so long ago. These days, some scholars consider
standards as both a constraint for and an enabler of innovation, others
see them as a common basis upon which innovation can flourish. The
European Commission now recognizes standardisation as an essential
instrument to enhance innovation and competitiveness in Europe. However,
the precise nature of the inter?relation between both still remains
largely unclear.

This Track aims to improve this situation. To this end, it will bring
together scholars, researchers and practitioners that have a stake in
research into standardisation and innovation. This will be a highly
multi?disciplinary group of people, with backgrounds including, but by
no means limited to, Business Studies, Management Studies, Economics,
History, Law, Sociology, Engineering, Computer Science, Information
Systems, and Policy Studies. Thus, the track will provide an opportunity
for experts from these very different communities to meet, interact,
exchange views and ideas and, ultimately, come to a better understanding
of the mutual dependencies between standardisation and innovation.
While such a better understanding is clearly desirable for the academic
community, it has also potentially significant practical ramifications.
Not least due to the associated IPR issues, standardisation has become a
multi?billion Dollar business. Accordingly, a better understanding of
how to use standards as an enabler of innovation, and how to prevent
them from becoming a constraining factor, is of considerable interest to
both for companies and policy makers.

The Track will look at both the role of standardisation (the process)
and of standards (the resulting product) in relation to innovation. That
is, it will try to find answers to the questions:

* How can standards be deployed as an enabler of innovation?
* How can standardisation be used as a platform for (open) innovation?
* How to better understand the overlapping concepts of standards,
dominant designs and platforms?

        Subject: EpiDoc Workshop, London, April 28-May 1, 2014

We invite applications for a 4-day training workshop on digital editing 
of epigraphic and papyrological texts, to be held in the Institute of 
Classical Studies, London, April 28-May 1, 2014. The workshop will be 
taught by Gabriel Bodard (KCL), Simona Stoyanova (Leipzig) and Charlotte 
Tupman (KCL). There will be no charge for the teaching, but participants 
will have to arrange their own travel and accommodation.

EpiDoc (epidoc.sf.net) is a set of guidelines for using TEI XML 
(tei-c.org) for the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and other ancient 
documentary texts. It has been used to publish digital projects 
including the Inscriptions of Aphrodisias, the US Epigraphy Project, 
Vindolanda Tablets Online and the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri. 
The workshop will introduce participants to the basics of XML markup and 
give hands-on experience of tagging textual features and object 
descriptions in TEI, as well as use of the tags-free Papyrological 
Editor (papyri.info/editor).

No technical skills are required, but a working knowledge of Greek or 
Latin, epigraphy or papyrology and the Leiden Conventions will be 
assumed. The workshop is open to participants of all levels, from 
graduate students to professors or professionals.

To apply for a place on this workshop please email 
charlotte.tupman at kcl.ac.uk with a brief description of your reason for 
interest and summarising your relevant skills and background, by Friday, 
February 21st, 2014.
