   The TEI Members' Meeting


   1-3 November 2007


     University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, USA

*TEI@20*: 20 Years of Supporting the Digital Humanities

The Organizing Committee of this anniversary TEI Members' Meeting 
invites individual paper proposals, panel sessions, and poster/tool 
demonstrations on the theme, broadly conceived, 'The TEI@20: 20 Years of 
Supporting the Digital Humanities'. Topics might include but are not 
restricted to

   * Building and using tools for TEI-based text encoding
   * Teaching TEI: Challenges and Opportunities
   * TEI as a theory of text
   * TEI: the next 20 years
   * New career opportunities for those using the TEI
   * Lacunae and omissions: new directions for the TEI

Paper presenters will be allocated 30 minutes to speak, 25 minutes for 
delivery, and five minutes for questions.

Alternatively, group sessions can be organized for 1.5 hours each and 
may be of varied formats, including:

   * A working papers session (pre-circulated papers)
   * A round-table discussion
   * Software demonstrations

Of the formats described above, a working paper session might be more 
appropriate for a smaller group, all of whom have all read the 
pre-circulated papers in advance. This type of format may span more than 
one session and will be held concurrently with the general session.
