SGML BeLux '96
Third annual conference on the practical use of SGML
October 31, 1996 - Brussels, Belgium

                            CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

SGML BeLux vzw/asbl, the Belgian-Luxembourgian Chapter of the International
SGML Users' Group, is organising its third annual conference on the
practical use of SGML. As the very successful SGML BeLux '94 and '95
conferences have shown, these conferences serve as an active forum for the
exchange of ideas and experiences with the use of SGML for electronic
document engineering and information delivery. SGML BeLux is again seeking
presenters to talk about all aspects of the practical use of SGML. If you or
your company have used SGML in innovative ways in a document application,
learned about some SGML problems the hard way, have a clear opinion on how
SGML should be used or have valuable advice for beginners, we invite you to
share your knowledge and experience with us.

Contributions to the conference can consist of a full-length paper or a
collection of overhead slides dealing with a topic of interest to the
conference participants.  These topics include (but are not limited to):
        Case studies of (un)successful document applications and implementations
        Experiences with support tools: conversion programs, editors, browsers,
on-line delivery
        Design of modular, reusable DTDs: development approaches, useful tips and
        Use of databases: storage and retrieval of document components,
object-oriented vs. relational
        Experiences with related electronic document engineering standards: HyTime,
        Internet document publishing: HTML vs. SGML, SGML viewers, generating
documents on the fly

Presenters are invited to submit an abstract in English of approximately 250
words. The abstract should include the title of the proposed contribution
with presenter names, affiliations and complete addresses. After acceptance
of the abstract, the final version of the contribution must be submitted in
camera-ready form according to detailed specifications available upon
acceptance. Both the abstract and final version of the contribution should
be submitted (in either hard copy or preferably electronic form) to:
