This list has been silent for too long while most of us have been
pursuing our own projects, many of which at least brush against the TEI
or markup in general, as applied to linguistic description. As we said
in our meeting last year, having one's own TEI-related project is a
precondition for a sustainable SIG, but what has been drastically
missing is exchange with others, and it's high time we did something
about that, the more so that the TEI of today needs this just as badly
as some of us need the TEI.
The October TEI-MM  will include a meeting of the SIG, on Friday the
14th, between 11-12:30h, in room ZHSG 1.004. I suggest that we devote a
part of it to brief presentations of SIG-related projects that we are
involved in. This is meant primarily to integrate us as a subgroup of
TEI enthusiasts/practitioners, and the micropresentations (ca. 5-7
minutes, to be decided based on the number of 'registrants') should
ideally focus either on the applicability of the current TEI
recommendations to our research goals or on why and where the TEI failed
to satisfy them. The proposed presentation format forces brevity and is
meant to provide fodder for a general group discussion that will follow.
Further elaboration on these topics will be made possible in the context
of the special issue of the TEI Journal, a seriously revised call for
which will be announced shortly.
Please register your interest in participating in this microsession
directly with me, either at [log in to unmask] or at [log in to unmask],
preferably by sketching the theme/title of your intended presentation.
Because of the ongoing vacation season, let the deadline be September
26, after which I will e-mail everyone involved with information on the
projected presentation length and post the list of presenters in our
corner of the TEIWiki.
With best regards and hope for a lively SIG meeting,
