EpiDoc Workshops have been run on several occasions over the past few years, with the intention of disseminating skills and experience and encouraging discussion on the topic of TEI markup for the encoding of epigraphic, papyrological, and other ancient texts.

Training programme

If you want to run an EpiDoc workshop


If you would like to run or host an EpiDoc training workshop at some point, please in the first instance contact the Markup list to canvass the possible trainers for their availability.

EpiDoc workshops may take a number of forms, for example:

  • Week-long, focussing entirely on EpiDoc and/or EFES, either introductory or advanced
  • Compined EpiDoc and other digital classics topics (e.g digital geography, 3D imaging, treebanking)
  • Shorter intensive workshops/editathons
  • Short introductory EpiDoc workshop

Please be prepared to:

  • Raise or provide adequate funding to run the event and pay trainers (see below for more details);
  • invite two or preferably three experienced trainers to visit and run the workshop (if you have local support of colleagues or students with EpiDoc or TEI experience to help out, two EpiDoc trainers will be fine);
  • begin planning the workshop at least 6 months ahead, and be flexible with time;
  • provide a seminar room with space for 15-20 participants to sit comfortably, with reliable wireless internet access, data projection and plenty of power sockets/extension cables.

Funding options

EpiDoc training events are offered on a spectrum of funding options, with higher priority given to the first items on this list:

  1. If you are able to budget for EpiDoc training as part of a funding application, please speak to us well in advance to estimate full costs of travel, accommodation, day-rate or consultancy fees, etc. for all trainers, and at least expenses for your participants.
  2. If at all possible, offer all trainers a respectable honorarium in addition to expenses.
  3. At a minimum, you should normally expect to cover transport and accommodation for trainers.
  4. If your university or project have no access to resources to cover these costs at all, it is possible that some trainers may be able to offer an EpiDoc workshop at their own institution's expense. This will be rare, and will probably have to be planned longer in advance than usual.
  5. Training may be able to be offered online at a much lower cost than a physical event.

You may also be able to obtain help with some of these costs from your local university, funding council, or epigraphic/papyrological society. Get in touch if you need advice on this.
