Rockville, Maryland. The organizing committee has released the program for “Balisage 2010: The Markup Conference” to be held in Montreal from 3 to 6 August, 2010.
“Balisage: The Markup Conference” (http://www.balisage.net/) is an annual peer-reviewed XML conference: how to create markup; what it means; hierarchies and overlap; modeling; taxonomies; transformation; query, searching, and retrieval; presentation and accessibility; making systems that make markup dance (or dance faster to a different tune in a smaller space).
Come to lovely Montreal, Canada from August 3rd to 6th for four action-packed days of angle brackets! Here’s a baker dozen (or so) sampling from the much larger list of Balisage 2010 presentations:
