********** TEI Members Meeting 2003 **********
The Text Encoding Initiative Consortium will hold its third annual
Members' Meeting at ATILF, the nationally-funded laboratory for
analysis and data processing of the French language, based at the
University of Nancy, France, on the 7th and the 8th November 2003.
The first day will, as usual, be an open day with attendance open to
all interested parties and an eclectic mix of presentations and
discussions from invited speakers and participants. Invited speakers
this year include Nancy Ide, Michael Beddow, Patrick Durusau, and
Vincent Quint. There will be opportunities for attendees to speak
briefly about their own projects, and a "TEI Question Time" for them
to ask about and provide feedback on future developments in the
TEI. The meeting will run all day and will conclude with a Reception
at 18:30. Full details of the programme are available on the Members
web site at http://www.tei-c.org/Members/2003-Nancy/ (non-members
cannot access this site, but becoming a member or a subscriber is
easy! just go to http://www.tei-c.org/Consortium/ag.html)
The second day will contain a business session, restricted to members
and subscribers only, at which the annual elections for membership of
the TEI Board and Technical Council will be held. Meetings of TEI
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are also scheduled for this day: a
separate announcement about these will follow in due course.
A TEI training session will be organized the day before the Members
Meeting, on the 6th: see separate announcement.
Nancy is a noble and ancient city in the North East of France, with
excellent transport links (see further

national research network (see further www.atilf.fr).
