Call for Participation - Extreme markup 2007

Chris Lilley

Hello public-schemata-users,

I'm forwarding this call for participation here, because Extreme
Markup is a good and interesting conference; note the mention of
RelaxNG and XSD in the call. I would really like to see something
about compound documents, NVDL, RelaxNG with Schematron, and so forth.

Talking of Schematron - does Xpath2 help for document-like XML, or
just for data-like XML?

Dates for papers etc (note - complete papers, not just abstracts; and
papers written in XML, not Word :) are in the call below.

I plan to be there - hope to see you there too!


a friendly, technically challenging, intensive, thought-provoking,
argumentative, welcoming, obstreperous conference on markup,
managing information, and information structures

Extreme is the leading international conference on markup theory and practice.
If you have interesting markup applications, difficult markup problems, or
intriguing solutions to problems related to the design and use of markup,
markup languages, or markup tools; if you want to know what the leading
theorists of markup are thinking; if you are the house markup expert and
want to spend time with your kind, then you should plan on attending
Extreme Markup Languages(r) 2007.


Extreme is an open marketplace of theories about markup and all the
things that they support or that support them: the difficult cases in
publishing, linguistics, transformation, searching, indexing, and storage
and retrieval. At Extreme, markup enthusiasts gather each year to trade
in ideas, not to convince management to buy new stuff. At Extreme we push
the edges of markup theory & practice.
