Scholars from ITSEE in Birmingham and INTF in Münster have been collating manuscript transcriptions with Collate2 since 1997 and still are using it. The purpose of this meeting is to bring these users together with CollateX developers in order to test, improve and implement CollateX, in particular to create a browser based interface for collating manuscript witnesses.

This meeting is open to anyone, however the purpose of the meeting is solely concerned with CollateX and related matters, so attendees will be expected to test or develop CollateX.

About CollateX

CollateX is a new object-oriented and open source application for collating textual sources, for example, to produce a critical apparatus. CollateX is led by Ronald Haentjens Dekker from the Huygens Institute, Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, but has also had contributions from several individuals and institutions under the umbrella of the European initiative “Interedition”.
