EpiDoc & EFES training workshop, London April 9–13, 2018

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

We invite applications for a five-day training workshop in text encoding for epigraphy and papyrology, and publication of ancient texts, at the Institute of Classical Studies, University of London, April 9–13, 2018.

The training will be offered by Gabriel Bodard (ICS), Martina Filosa (Köln), Simona Stoyanova (ICS) and Polina Yordanova (ICS/Sofia) and there will be no charge for the workshop. Thanks to the generosity of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, a limited number of bursaries are available to assist students and other unfunded scholars with the costs of travel and accommodation.

EpiDoc (epidoc.sf.net) is a community of practice, recommendations and tools for the digital editing and publication of ancient texts based on TEI XML. EFES (github.com/EpiDoc/EFES) is a publication platform closely geared to EpiDoc projects and designed for use by non-technical editors. No expert computing skills are required, but a working knowledge of Greek/Latin or other ancient language, epigraphy or papyrology, and the Leiden Conventions will be assumed. The workshop is open to participants of all levels, from graduate students to professors and professionals.

  1. a brief description of your reason for interest
  2. your relevant background and experience
