Extreme Markup Languages 2002: Call for Participation

Call for Participation

Extreme Markup Languages 2002

Sponsored by IDEAlliance (Alexandria, VA, USA.)

Not for beginners, nor the technically faint. This is the edge, the hard bits, the theory behind the practice, the practice that outstrips current theory -- the Extreme.

Extreme Markup Languages is:

   - an intense 3.7-day conference preceded by two days of tutorials
   - devoted to technical aspects of markup, markup languages, markup systems
     and markup applications, and everything touched by the question of
     how best to allow information to describe itself.
   - a 4-day coffee jag

It's not to everyone's taste: too technical for some, too theoretical for some, too abstract for some -- and perfect for some.

At Extreme Markup Languages software developers, markup theorists, philosophers of information, knowledge representers (and presenters!), and the kind of people who like hanging around with them devote the better part of a week to the unfettered pursuit of better understanding of problems of information management, knowledge systems, markup, formal languages, the search for a better parser interface, and the development of markup-related software.

     Moderation in the organization of information is no virtue.
     Extremism in the investigation of markup is no vice.
