ACH/ALLC 2004 XML/XSLT Workshops Center for Humanities Computing Göteborg University Göteborg, Sweden 9-11 June 2004

Please distribute. Apologies for cross posting

Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is pleased to offer XML/XSLT workshops as a pre-conference activity of the 2004 Joint International Conference of the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing and the Association for Computers and the Humanities.

The workshops are aimed at people in the humanities, libraries, museums, and archives who wish to learn how to create digital archives using eXtensible Markup Language (XML), and its sister technology, eXtensible stylesheet language (XSLT) used for transforming XML documents to HTML, PDF, or other XML documents.

The first day of the workshop will introduce students to the theory and practice of text encoding using eXtensible Markup Language (XML). We will be focusing on encoding through the scheme most humanities projects utilize, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), one of the oldest and most robust text encoding schemes available. The second workshop (one and one half days) will introduce students to the practicalities of transforming XML documents through eXtensible Stylesheet Language (XSLT).

Students may register separately for Introduction to XML and the TEI (9 June), or the Introduction to XSLT (10-11 June). There are a limited number of student discounts available on a first-come-first-served basis. Please see the registration form for more details. Early registration is advised as there are limited places available.
