----------------------------------

DC-2012 will explore the global, national and regional roles of metadata in addressing global challenges such as food security, the digital divide, and sustainable development. Metadata plays a significant role globally in information systems shaping how we know, monitor and change social and governmental systems affecting everything from the environment, human rights and justice to education and peace. DC-2012 will bring together in Kuching the community of metadata scholars and practitioners to engage in the exchange of knowledge and best practices in developing languages of description to meet these global challenges.

Beyond the conference theme, papers, reports, and poster submissions are welcome on a wide range of metadata topics, such as:

-- Metadata principles, guidelines, and best practices
-- Metadata quality (methods, tools, and practices)
-- Conceptual models and frameworks (e.g., RDF, DCAM, OAIS)
-- Application profiles
-- Metadata generation (methods, tools, and practices)
-- Metadata interoperability across domains, languages,
   time, structures, and scales.
-- Cross-domain metadata uses (e.g., recordkeeping, preservation,
   curation, institutional repositories, publishing)
-- Domain metadata (e.g., for corporations, cultural memory
   institutions, education, government, and scientific fields)
-- Bibliographic standards (e.g., RDA, FRBR, subject headings)
   as Semantic Web vocabularies
-- Accessibility metadata
-- Metadata for scientific data, e-Science and grid applications
-- Social tagging and user participation in building metadata
-- Usage data (paradata/attention metadata)
-- Knowledge Organization Systems (e.g., ontologies, taxonomies,
   authority files, folksonomies, and thesauri) and Simple Knowledge
   Organization Systems (SKOS)
-- Ontology design and development
-- Integration of metadata and ontologies
-- Search engines and metadata
-- Linked data and the Semantic Web (metadata and applications)
-- Vocabulary registries and registry services

----------------------------------

Call for info on missing TEI Projects and updated information

All,

The TEI Projects page at http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/index.xml has 
been gathering entries for quite a few years, and not surprisingly some of the 
information in the entries is obsolete or out of date. TEI Council has discussed 
migrating the information here to a more user-friendly database-like interface, 
but that may not happen for a while.

In the meantime, I have just gone through the existing entries and fixed broken 
links. I am sure that other information (contact email, etc.) needs updating as 
well. If you are responsible for a project listed on that page and want to make 
any changes, could you please email the details to me?

Four projects on the list seem to be entirely missing from the Web. If anyone 
can provide me with working links to them, I will update; otherwise I will 
remove them from this list in a week or so:

The Anglo-Saxon Poetry Project
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/an01.xml

The Cursus Project
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/cu01.xml

Project Lorelei
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/lo01.xml

The Sternberg Project
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/st01.xml

Thanks for assistance,

David Sewell
TEI webmaster

P.S. re Call for info on missing TEI Projects

I should have added: if you have a project that is using TEI-encoded files, and 
would like to have it added to the TEI Projects page, you can do so using this 
form:

http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Projects/newform.html

(Entries are processed manually, so please allow some time for them to appear in 
the list.)

TEI Lite Guidelines

Hi there,

I know I asked about this issue some months ago.

I would like to know  how it is going for an ePub version of the TEI
Lite Guidelines? (Not sure whether the sentence is correct, sorry :-()

Thanks for your excellent work,

Pablo

In reponse to your earlier enquiry (back in August) I think Sebastian 
indicated he could add an epub version of the TEI Lite documentation to 
the next release. While we're waiting for that (should be real soon 
now...) you can of course generate an epub version yourself, by using 
the Oxgarage service.

Just download the TEI Lite ODD file (if you dont already have it, it's 
at http://www.tei-c.org/release/xml/tei/custom/odd/teilite.odd)

Then visit http://www.tei-c.org/ege-webclient/ ... Select "ODD document" 
as your "convert from", and "ePub document" as your "convert to". Of 
course the result won't be as pretty as they might be, since you will be 
using the default XSLT conversion, but it does work.

Re: TEI Lite Guidelines (was TEI-L Digest - 2 Dec 2011 to 3 Dec 2011 (#2011-270))

Dear TEIers:

I tried Sebastian's suggestion myself:

>

and I got:

"Error occured. Please check the filetype and try again.?
Error type : class pl.psnc.dl.ege.exception.ConverterException
Error message : Exception thrown by OutputURIResolver"

Maybe the EGE-WebClient has its day off? ;-)

Thanks in advance for all the help!

I followed Lou's instructions and they worked for me.  I didn't get the 
errors that you got.

Modern-spelling TEI dramatic texts?

Hello,

I am wondering if there are any publicly accessible (or accessible through a university library) collections of reasonably well curated modern versions of early modern drama (and perhaps other non-dramatic texts as well). I am not referring to texts like those in the EEBO-TCP which are meant to be encoded facsimile editions of the original quartos etc. I know they can be algorithmically modernized to work reasonably well but I am especially interested in texts that are :

1> In modern spelling (not quite the Arden Shakespeare, but reasonably well edited).
2> Have some sort of XML markup (preferably TEI, but I could convert if it were some sort of generic markup).
3> Have some sort of markup for acts, scenes and also speakers, preferably according to modern editorial consensus rather than the original texts which can be erratic on play structure.

I would hope that at least Shakespeare would be available as such a collection, but I am also interested in other dramatists as well and especially Marlowe, Jonson, Middleton, and Dekker. 

Similar editions of non-dramatic texts, especially Milton, Spenser and Donne would be great as well.

Thanks for any help and suggestions,
Anupam

Re: Modern-spelling TEI dramatic texts?

A quick clarification - I am interested in getting the TEI/XML encoded source to work on, not just reading a rendering of the text online. 

If no encoded editions are available, I'd appreciate suggestions for good plaintext collections as well.

Thanks,
Anupam

A good place to start is 
http://wiki.tei-c.org/index.php/Samples_of_TEI_texts

It might help if you said what it was you were hoping to do with the texts.

cheers
