Developers' Day at XML 2000 [2000.12.04]
Date: Wed, 11 Oct 2000 11:09:06 -0400 From: "Elledge, Marion" <email@example.com> To: "'firstname.lastname@example.org'" Subject: CALL FOR PRESENTATION ---- XML Developers' Day --- FIRST and LAST CALL
This is the first, last, and only call for presentations on XML Developers' Day at XML 2000. The deadline for submissions is Monday, 23 October.
Since 1984, the fall GCA SGML/XML conference has been the one annual must-attend event for the structured markup community. XML was first introduced to the world at this conference in 1996, and the event continues to be a focal point for meetings of XML-related OASIS, W3C, IDEAlliance, and ISO working groups. For information on the conference, held this year in Washington, D.C., see:
XML Developers' Day on Monday 4 December is intended for conference attendees with a special interest in the latest XML tools and advanced techniques. If you have applications that feature innovative uses of XML, this is your chance to share your accomplishments with other advanced workers.
Proposals of 1-3 paragraphs clearly describing the presentation should be sent in plain text directly to the chair of the XML Dev Day track, Jon Bosak:
Remember, submissions must be mailed no later than Monday, 23-October-2000.
GUIDELINES FOR PRESENTERS
If you don't follow these guidelines, you don't stand a chance of being considered.
1. All submissions must be in plain text. If it's clear from your submission that you don't understand what this means or that you don't know what your mailer is producing, you will automatically be considered to have insufficient expertise to be presenting in this track.
2. Submissions must come directly from the presenter, not the presenter's admin, boss, or marketing department.
3. Submissions must include a short title suitable for the conference program and web site.
4. The description of the proposed presentation must be brief but detailed enough to serve as the presentation abstract on the conference program and web site.
Because Dev Day is specially intended to showcase the latest developments, we do not require presentations to be submitted in advance. However, presenters whose proposals are accepted must be prepared to submit their presentation in electronic form immediately following their appearance at the conference.
The use of XML in electronic commerce is of particular interest this year, and detailed technical presentations on this subject will be given special attention.
