let me inform you about Edirom-Summer-School 2013 taking place 23 to 27 September 2013 at Heinz-Nixdorf-Institute of the University of Paderborn, Germany, dedicated to the field of digital text- and music edition and offering a total of 13 distinct courses.
This year Musicology Seminar Detmold/Paderborn (University of Paderborn and Hochschule für Musik Detmold) is organising Edirom-Summer-School with the BMBF-funded project DARIAH-DE. Morover, the program is enriched by courses from TextGrid, Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel, Technische Universität Darmstadt (DH), and the Danish Centre for Music Publication in Copenhagen.
The scope of course reaches from basic introductions to the markup standards of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and the Music Encoding Initiative (MEI), across working with respective software tools for editor or library purposes (TextGrid, Edirom, MerMEId), up to practice-oriented courses dealing with more advanced features of encoding manuscripts with TEI and/or MEI. The „Edirom-User-Forum“ will give opportunity of exchange between current and (potential) future users of the Edirom Tools.
This year, for the first time, we offer individual research counsel sessions on „Digital Music Edition“. Those interested, be it projects or individual scientists, can apply for a time slot with one of our staff members by submitting a short exposé.
The complete program and further information on registration can be found on our new website http://ess.uni-paderborn.de.
Registration deadline is 30 August.
