From Gabriel Bodard:
Last week twelve professional papyrologists were trained in the use of the new SoSOL tool(*) for tags-free markup of documentary texts [see EpiDoc – Son of SOL Training Session, King’s College London]. In the process, c.100 texts were painlessly added to the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri.
I’d like to remind people that another EpiDoc+SoSOL training week is planned as part of the DHO summer school (June 28-July 2), on which see DHO Summer School 2010. If any of you might be interested in attending this workshop (cost is €300 for students, €400 waged – we hope to have a couple bursaries to help with the cost), or in sending a student or colleague to be trained in epigraphic or papyrological markup, please write to the local organizers and/or myself as soon as possible to express your interest. Registration is still open, but we need to have a good idea of numbers in the next couple weeks.
