THE 1997 INTERNATIONAL HYTIME CONFERENCE
* Call for Papers *
(preceded by Eliot Kimber's HyTime Course)
The 1997 International Conference on the Application of HyTime will
be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, during
August 19-20, 1997.
HyTime is one of the SGML family of ISO standards for information
representation and interchange. HyTime is the only internationally
standard way to represent hypermedia documents, and, with its object
structure modeling capabilities, which undergird the "grove" paradigm
used in SGML (including XML) and DSSSL, it is unarguably the most
general, abstract, and advanced way to use SGML, and to re-use
information of all kinds in every way.
This conference brings together HyTime users, prospective HyTime
users, systems vendors, systems integrators, applications developers,
consultants, and researchers to compare notes, share lore, ask
questions, and develop answers. These annual GCA-sponsored
conferences on HyTime are unique opportunities for everyone who wants
to explore the cutting edge of practical hypermedia information
