XML 2007: XForms evening

In addition to the main conference programme, we’re offering two special evening events at XML 2007 (Boston, 3–5 December): an XForms evening on Monday evening, and Standards and Specs lightning rounds on Tuesday evening.

Each of these is a mini conference within a conference, with shorter presentations devoted to a single theme. The Monday XForms evening promises to be particularly fast-paced and interesting, with six 15-minute presentations followed by a half-hour closing keynote.
