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.
