EpiDoc & EFES Training Workshop

For the past 60 years the Institute of Classical Studies has promoted research into the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean and neighbouring lands, ranging from prehistory to Late Antiquity, and encompassing languages and literature, art and archaeology, history and philosophy. 

The Institute runs an extensive Events programme throughout the academic year, comprising seminars, guest lectures and conferences with distinguished speakers drawn from throughout the UK and around the world. The Institute also publishes a twice-yearly journal BICS, now available in both printed and on-line versions, as well as an important series of monographs, BICS Supplements. 

The ICS is one of nine member Institutes of the University of London’s School of Advanced Study, which is devoted to the promotion, facilitation and practice of research and scholarship in many aspects of the Humanities.


ICS invites 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 is a community of practice, recommendations and tools for the digital editing and publication of ancient texts based on TEI XML. 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.
