  • EpiDoc workshops have been proposed for Berlin, Bologna, Michigan, Paris, Rome, Torino, Udine, Vienna (various late 2010/early 2011)
  • Two EpiDoc/SoSOL workshops for papyrologists are proposed at CCH, KCL in 2011
  • An EpiDoc/SoSOL workshop is planned at Duke University, July 2013 as part of the Summer Institute of Papyrology

Please be prepared to:

  • raise money to fund travel and accommodation (at least) for two or preferably three experienced trainers to visit and run the workshop
  • begin planning the workshop at least 6 months ahead, and be flexible
  • provide a seminar room with space for 10-15 participants to sit comfortably, with wireless internet access and data projection
  • ...
