Extreme Markup Languages 2000

Abstract and concrete information models, systems built on them, software to exploit them, SGML, XML, XSL, XLink, schemas, topic maps, query languages, and other markup-related topics are in scope for this conference.

Extreme Markup Languages is the successor conference to all of the following GCA conferences:

  • Markup Technologies
  • XML Developers Conference
  • Metastructures
  • International Markup
  • HyTime

Principals of those conferences have now joined forces to offer a single unabashedly hard-core conference as a gathering place for the technically-oriented members of the information interchange community; a place for these people to meet and refresh each other with ideas advice, and camaraderie. The conference is agnostic with respect to commercial and political persuasion. It is passionate about providing a forum where technical ideas can be communicated and explained.
