In the "Introduction to MEI" track, those new to MEI will learn how to use the Music Encoding Initiative for research, teaching, electronic publishing, and management of digital collections. Major topics include –
o basic XML;o MEI history and design principles; o tools for creating and editing MEI data and metadata; o MEI-based workflows; ando Verovio (www.verovio.org).
Each day will include lectures, hands-on encoding practice, and opportunities to address participant specific issues. Attendees are encouraged to bring example material they would like to encode. No previous experience with MEI or XML is required for this track, but an understanding of music notation and other markup schemes, such as TEI and HTML, will be helpful.
There is no cost for attending the workshop. However, each participant must bear his/her own travel, housing, and food costs. Light refreshments will be provided.
