[Update: comments are now fixed — if you have any comments about XML 2006, please feel free to leave them.]
I am chairing XML 2006 this fall, taking over the conference after five successful years under Lauren Wood.
This year’s conference’s time and place has changed since the announcement at XML 2005. The main conference will now take place from Tuesday 5 December to Thursday 7 December, 2006 at the Sheraton in Boston, MA. Tutorials will be held immediately before the conference, on Monday 4 December. Friday 8 December will be available for organizations to hold meetings, BOF’s, and so on.
Please update your calendars now. If you have a blog with readers who might be interested in XML 2006, I would be grateful if you could pass on this update, so that it reaches as many people as possible. Ditto for any mailing lists.
The planning committee is about to begin work setting up themes and tracks, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to leave them as comments or to send me a private email. We’re looking forward to reading your paper submissions, and to seeing you in Boston next December. In the meantime, don’t forget to take a look at XTech 2006 in Amsterdam this May, and Extreme Markup Languages 2006 in Montreal this August.
