To commemorate the tenth anniversary of its founding, the Text
Encoding Initiative (TEI) is sponsoring its first user conference, to
be held 14-16 November 1997 at Brown University in Providence, Rhode

The TEI was established at an international planning meeting on text
encoding standards, held at Vassar College on November 12-13,
1987. The TEI is sponsored by the Association for Computers and the
Humanities, the Association for Computational Linguistics, and the
Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing.

The TEI Guidelines for Electronic Text Encoding and Interchange were
published in spring of 1994. They provide an extensive SGML-based
scheme for encoding electronic texts across a wide spectrum of text
types and suitable for any kind of application. The Guidelines have
already achieved wide-scale implementation in projects throughout
North America and Europe.

The TEI conference will bring together users of the TEI Guidelines in
order to share ideas, experiences, and expertise, provide a forum for
technical discussion and evaluation of the Guidelines as they have
been implemented across a variety of applications. A portion of the
conference will also be devoted to consideration of the future of the
