Dear TEI-L,

I am preparing a proposal for a “multiple paper session” at the DH 2015 conference in Sydney ( on the theme of “New developments in quantitative metrics,” and I would like to recruit additional participants. Proposals for presentations to run between 15 and 30 minutes (depending on the eventual size of the panel) should discuss the use of original digital tools or methods to support the machine-assisted identification and analysis of formal structures (e.g., meter, rhyme) in poetry in any linguistic tradition. Proposals should involve research that has progressed beyond a general project description, and should foreground specific research questions that have been explored or answered with the help of the digital technologies employed. Proposals should include the name, affiliation, and email address of the author(s), an abstract describing the content and focus of the presentation, and a statement that at least one author of the proposed contribution is committed to participating in the session in person if the proposal is accepted. Proposals should also indicate the authors’ awareness and acceptance of the policy described in the Call for Proposals that reads: “Papers that are submitted as part of a special session may not be submitted individually for consideration in another category.” If you are interested in participating in this panel, please respond to David J. Birnbaum at [log in to unmask] no later than Monday, October 27, 2014.
