Might I bring to your attention the following?
Workshop in "Manuscriptology", Copenhagen, 8-11 October 2007
This workshop will bring together leading researchers concerned with topics
pertaining to material, philological and cultural/sociological aspects of
manuscripts from traditions as diverse as the Chinese, Tibetan, Indian,
African, Mezzo-American, Arabic and Gręco-Roman with the aim of initiating
the necessary and much desired process of interdisciplinary co-operation
which can lead to the establishment of a truly international academic
discipline of "manuscriptology".

For what it's worth, I'll be there.
