Details: "The Graphic Communications Association (GCA) invites content management industry leaders to participate in the fifth annual Metastructures conference. Formerly known as the International HyTime Conference, Metastructures 1998 is about the evolving abstractions that underlie modern information management solutions, how they enhance human productivity, and how they are being applied by expert managers. The notion of strongly-typed hyperlinks is an example of a metastructure. Proposals for tutorials, papers, and presentations on HyTime, SGML, STEP and XML-related metastructures, such as XLink, XPointers, Resource Description Format, and XML-EDI are welcome. The Metastructures conference will be followed by the XML Developers' Conference, chaired by Jon Bosak, chairman of the W3C XML working group."
