XML News from Friday, June 15, 2007

IDEAlliance has posted the call for papers for XML 2007. The conference takes place in Boston December 3-5 at a new hotel: the Marriott Copley Place, This is the major North American XML show. They are planning four tracks this year:

According to David Megginson:

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.

I'd like to attend, but I may not have the free time. Proposals are due by August 31.
