XML 2007 Call for Participation (closes 31 August)

XML 2007

The Call for Participation in XML 2007, the world’s largest and longest-running markup conference, is now open until Friday 31 August:

The conference runs from Monday 3 December to Wednesday 5 December 2007, and includes a keynote by Jason Hunter, one of our most popular speakers at past conferences.

Thanks to Edd Dumbill and his startup, Expectnation, we have a much simpler, better-designed web interface for submitting proposals this year, so please drop by and take a look.

Changes for 2007

There are a few changes for the conference this year:

  • There will be no separate tutorial day; instead, the regular program (three tracks) ends at noon on Wednesday, then Wednesday afternoon will be devoted to a special training track for all different skill levels (no separate registration required).

  • This is the only call for participation; there will be no late-breaking call this year.

  • On one of the evenings, we plan to offer lightning sessions for standards groups — each group will have 20 slides and 6 minutes and 40 seconds to let us know what they’re working on. This will be a great way to learn a lot about a lot of specs and standards in a short time.

  • We continue to encourage presentations on open data and document technologies other than XML, such as JSON.

We look forward to seeing you in Boston this December.
