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

Dear all,

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
