(Preliminary Announcement)


The Standard Generalized Markup Language ( SGML ), the International Standard being adopted worldwide for computer-based text information management, is the focus of this new conference for the Asia-Pacific region. Panels will review information superhighway initiatives and the role that SGML will play. Presentations will focus on applications of SGML in other countries and specific industries such as automotive, pharmaceutical, commercial airline, financial services and reference and commercial publishing. Throughout the conference, there will be discussions and explanations of hypertext and multimedia potentials employing a related international standard, HyTime.

He is the major force behind the initiative and will review its implications for various industry and governmental segments, nationally and internationally. To make full use of the information superhighway, information needs to be organized for manipulation, access and dissemination. That organization requires standards, with SGML as the core.

This linkage will be explored further by Dr. Goldfarb, the author of SGML, in his keynote.
