The 7th Computers, Literature and Philology (CLiP) conference:
'Literatures, Languages and Cultural Heritage in a digital world'

Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College London, UK
Thursday 29 June - Saturday 1 July 2006

We are pleased to announce that the full conference programme for CLiP 2006
conference is now available on the conference website at

The international Computers, Literature and Philology (CLiP) conference,
which has taken place at a variety of European universities since the first
conference in 1998, invites you to register for this year's conference in
London and which is dedicated to the emerging communities interested in the
use of computing in the humanities, specifically (but not exclusively) in
the fields of study that are relevant to Romance languages and related
literature/history. This year's theme is "Literatures, Languages and
Cultural Heritage in a digital world".

The discussions at CLiP conferences focus on the integration of Philology
and Information Technology. In this context, 'Literature' and 'Philology'
are to be understood in more general terms. 'Literature' means all sorts of
texts (spoken, written, hypertext etc.), which may also contain images,
sound materials, graphs etc. 'Philology' means the scholarship devoted to
these texts from diverse perspectives.

Please see the website for versions of informative pages in other languages
and for the collection of abstracts.

Second announcement: Intensive Introduction to TEI
August 10-12, 2006
Brown University
Co-sponsored by the Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers
Project, in conjunction with Summer and Continuing Education at Brown


The Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers Project are once
again offering a three-day workshop on text encoding with the TEI
Guidelines. This intensive hands-on introduction will cover the
basics of TEI encoding, including a discussion of stylesheets and XML
publication tools, project planning, and funding issues. The workshop
is designed to help encoding novices get quickly up to speed on basic
text encoding, with particular emphasis on the transcription of
primary sources and archival materials. Archivists, librarians,
digital project managers, humanities faculty and graduate students
will all find this workshop a useful background for a closer
engagement with text encoding theory and practice. The course will be
taught by Julia Flanders and Syd Bauman.

Attendees are encouraged to bring materials from their own projects
for discussion and practice.

Deadline for registration is July 14. The course fee is $425 ($475
after June 25), with low-cost accommodation available on the Brown
campus. To register, and for more information, please visit the site above.

Thanks! Julia
