1997 CETH Summer Workshop on SGML and the TEI: Making Text Work
July 27 to August 1, 1997

Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey

The 1997 CETH Summer Workshop is an intensive, one-week course of study
that focuses on the application of SGML (the Standard Generalized Markup
Language) and the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) encoding scheme in the
humanities. The Workshop is open to beginning and advanced users alike.
The goal is to provide in-depth coverage of the fundamentals of
electronic document markup, and issues related to the use of SGML and
the TEI in practice.

There will be opportunity for beginners to learn the basics of document
markup using SGML. A number of topical sessions aimed at all levels of
expertise will cover the use of the TEI core and additional tag sets,
document analysis, project management, and on- and off-line delivery.
Advanced users will have the opportunity to explore other subjects,
including, but not limited to: modifying and extending the TEI DTD;
designing hypertext and other forms of linking; working with different
character sets; and writing programs to support SGML.

Sessions will be evenly divided between lecture and hands-on work.
Participants will be encouraged to pursue work on their own projects in
supervised labs. Time will be allotted for one-on-one consultations
between participants and instructors. There will be a wide range of
commercial, free- and share-ware SGML software used in the classroom and
available for experimentation in the laboratory.


The CETH Summer Workshop will be held in the new Scholarly
Communications Center located in Alexander Library, on Rutgers' historic
College Avenue campus. The SCC's facilities include two labs of 25
workstations each, and a lecture hall equiped with digital video
projection. Accommodation will be available in Rutgers University
student housing facilities. All rooms are air conditioned, have private
bathrooms, and are a short walking distance from Alexander Library.
