Introduction Submission

All participants of the Annotation Camp are asked to describe their work; let's call this an Introduction. Although similar in form to a typical meeting abstract, it does not need to try to focus on a single cohesive story or research project. This will be used as your introduction to the others that will be attending the camp and you are welcome to mention multiple disparate projects you are involved in if that best describes your interests and activities. Here is a sample of one submitted last year. A form for your information is below.

Enter your title and introduction below. You may use simple HTML (World Wide Web mark-up language) codes, as described below, to include bold, italic, super- and subscripts in both the title and introduction. The effect of the mark-up code will be shown when you press the "Submit Registration" button.

  • To italicize text, begin words with <I>, and end them with </I>
  • To bold text, begin words with <B>, and end them with </B>
  • To superscript text, begin words with <SUP>, and end them with </SUP>
  • To subscript text, begin words with <SUB>, and end them with </SUB>
  • For experts: HTML links can be included using the <A HREF="URL HERE"> Link Text Here </A>
  • A list of many HTML character codes is available.

Be sure to include the less-than and greater-than symbols (<>) around the mark up codes. You will see the effect of the above mark up codes when you press the "Proof Read Introduction" button.

Title Text (required)
Type in sentence style: capitalize first word only; type all other words except proper names in lower case letters.

Introduction Text (required)
Enter text (limit 1500 characters [approximately 250 words] including spaces, but not including the HTML codes) using only the HTML codes listed above or in the HTML character codes table.
