Working with TEI Simple and its Processing Model

Wednesday, May 27th 2015


IT Services, University of Oxford, 13 Banbury Road, OX2 6NN Oxford

Do you work with collections of early-modern and modern printed material encoded in TEI or support people who do? Do you struggle with transformations from TEI to publication formats?

Are you interested in how TEI Simple can help you process your documents and document your publishing choices?

Come and learn how to apply the TEI Simple processing model to your data under the guidance of TEI SIMPLE experts. Check if you can achieve your publishing goals within a TEI Simple infrastructure.

We will give a basic introduction to the rationale behind TEI Simple and the tools that have been developed, and then spend the rest of the day working through participant’s material and texts from TEI Simple reference corpora.

The goal of the workshop is to test the TEI Simple framework on real life projects and with real editors, assessing not only whether it is complete and powerful enough, but also how easy it is to use for editors and developers working with TEI documents.

There is no charge for those attending this day-long workshop.

This unconference-style workshop is open to editors and developers. You will be expected to bring your own material and have certain vision how you’d imagine it published.

We ask each participant to investigate local funding sources to help cover the costs of travel and accommodation, but if all else fails, do contact workshop organizers (magdalena.turska at it.ox.ac.uk<mailto:magdalena.turska at it.ox.ac.uk>) and we’ll try to find a solution.

To register for the workshop you must first submit a brief application through http://goo.gl/0inlRT. You'll be notified by May 10 (if not before) of your acceptance for the workshop. Late applications will be considered if there is space.

Thanks for reading and sharing with interested parties. I'll be happy to answer any questions,


Magdalena Turska
