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.

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.

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
    • ideally you should be prepared to pay the trainers for their time as well
    • a funded project should enquire for consultancy rates; a limited number (1-2) of expenses-only workshops will be run per year
  • begin planning the workshop at least 6 months ahead, and be flexible
  • provide a seminar room with space for 15-20 participants to sit comfortably, with wireless internet access, data projection and plenty of power sockets/extension cables
