Changes for 2006
I’m excited about the proposals we’ve received so far, and I’m looking forward to receiving many more over the next few days. We’re planning a sharply-focussed conference this year, with four well-defined tracks. While the traditional XML community will always be the backbone of our conference, we’re reaching out this year to people who have not previously thought of submitting. To make things easier, for example, we’re no longer requiring a paper marked up in XML — PDF or XHTML are just fine (and not due until after the conference, to boot). We’re also introducing the XML Scholarship and extending popular features from previous conferences, including the Master’s series.
Track chairs blogging
For more information on individual tracks, see the blog postings by Microsoft’s Michael Champion (Enterprise XML computing track co-chair) and O’Reilly’s Simon St-Laurent (XML on the Web track chair).
See you in Boston this December.
(Note: late-breaking presentations and XML scholarship entries are due on 30 October.)
