TEI & Interoperability Think Tank

Recently we witnessed an engaged debate over twitter and the TEI-list focusing on interoperability as a future avenue for furthering the goals of TEI. The ESF COST Action IS0704 'Interedition', specifically focused on interoperable tools for textual scholarship, is organizing a half day Think Tank on this subject during the upcoming TEI-meeting at the Universität Würzburg. We've found Sebastian Rahtz (Oxford University Computing Services) and Doug Reside (New York Public Library), and Wendell Piez (Mulberry Technologies R&D) prepared to fire off the discussion with key pitches. Wendell will be chairing the Think Tank.

Venue & Time

October 12, 2011: 13.30-15.30 Hubland Campus, Wuerzburg University Building Z6 (look for the sign post inside).


Interedition is delighted to offer several bursaries for attending this Think Tank on 12 October 2011 that is coinciding and co-organized with the 2011 Annual Conference and Members' Meeting of the TEI Consortium: "Philology in the Digital Age" held at Würzburg University, 10-16 October 2011.
