Encoding Cultures Logo

Joint MEC TEI conference 2023

The conference theme invites us to think about the need to encode different cultural realms — not only written musical and literary cultures, but also oral cultures, the cultures of underrepresented communities, and even cultural practices beyond language and music, such as dance, theater, and film. In coming together to identify and discuss the commonalities and differences between our two coding communities, we aim to discover new methods and new approaches to encoding culture in all its forms.

Travel grants available

We are very happy to be able to offer a total of eight travel grants to participants of the conference. While we tried to keep registration fees as low as possible, and even though Paderborn is a relatively affordable city, getting here may exceed the budget of early career researchers and others. For this purpose, we are happy that the Music Encoding Initiative (5) and NFDI4Culture (3) are sponsoring a total of eight travel grants, with up to 500€ of funding for each.
