CLARIN is a pan-European initiative which aims to build a research
infrastructure for language resources integrating numerous tools and
resources in a distributed architecture, and which will respond to the needs
of researchers across the humanities and social sciences. CLARIN is being
built on open standards, but also with a recognition that standards and
guidelines are only one part of a complex jigsaw which needs to be assembled
to create reliable, durable and high quality services. The Text Encoding
Initiative is a long-standing community which develops guidelines for the
encoding of scholarly texts in XML, and works with associated
technologies. This workshop aims to bring together those involved in these
two sets of activities to share experiences and knowledge, and to find ways
to work together productively in the next generation of infrastructure

The organizing committee of this workshop invite proposals for
presentations on topics which link together CLARIN and the TEI, including:
- the role of the TEI in developing standards for CLARIN services,
- technical issues in the integration of TEI-conformant resources or
TEI-aware tools in CLARIN services,
- barriers and problems with the deployment and linking of CLARIN and
TEI technologies,
- training, awareness and advocacy activities.
Presenters will be asked not to simply present an overview of their
work, but to focus on precisely how, why (or why not) TEI formats,
guidelines and technologies are being deployed, and to go into some
technical detail to do this.

It is hoped that this will be only the start of promoting dialogue and
collaboration between CLARIN and the TEI at many levels. One result would be
an improved dialogue about the use of the TEI in higher-level initiatives to
develop standards for the CLARIN architecture, but another would be enhanced
engagement directly with the TEI community of developers and researchers in
the many centres and institutions related to CLARIN.

Format of proposals
Proposals should be between 500 and 1000 words, in a text document, and
should be sent to Proposals should contain a title
and the names and affiliations of all authors.
