         Subject: Conference Session Call for Papers: Markup as
Theory of the Text (Second Call)

(apologies for cross posting)

Call for papers, Markup as theory of text.
TEI Members Meeting, 1-3 November, 2007, University of Maryland.

This session will look at digital markup from the point of view of its
underlying theoretical assumptions and implications. Some questions we
are interested in considering:

1) What are the theoretical implications of digital markup for editors,
paleographers, book historians, literary critics, linguists, etc. Are
they different from, similar to, or of a completely different order from
previous print practice?

2) Are markup schemas theories of the structure of a text in the way
that linguistic theories are theories of language or literary theories
are theories about literature? Do they/should they have theoretical
lives of their own?

3) Does electronic markup change the way we look at text?

We are open to other understandings of the topic and papers do
not need to concentrate specifically, exclusively, or at all on the TEI.
They can be broad ranging or concentrate on specific smaller issues.

Please email abstracts to daniel.odonnell_at_uleth.ca by March 30th.

Conference: Registration Now Open
Registration is now open for the First International PKP Scholarly
Publishing Conference, July 11 - 13, 2007.
Please Note: Registration is limited to 200 people and is filling up
fast! If you are interested in attending the conference, please
register and submit your payment as soon as possible to secure a place.
The conference will provide opportunities for those involved in the
organization, promotion, and study of scholarly communication to
share and discuss innovative work in scholarly publishing, with a
focus on the contribution that open source publishing technologies
(such as, but not restricted to, PKP's OJS, OCS, and OA Harvester)
can make to improving access to research and scholarship on a global
and public scale.
Major keynote and plenary speakers have now been confirmed. John
Willinsky, the founder of PKP and the creator of OJS software will
provide the opening keynote address. Raym Crow from SPARC will speak
on publishing cooperatives and the various forms they might take for
nonprofit publishers, including societies, university presses, and
universities themselves. We are also pleased to welcome Anurag
Acharya, Google Scholar's founding engineer. Finally, Michael Geist
will close the conference with his thoughts on the changes and
challenges that lie ahead in the fields of communications, knowledge
creation, and intellectual property.
