----------------------------------------------- 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 interchange. For information on attending the conference, please contact the GCA at 100 Daingerfield Road, 4th Floor, Alexandria, Virginia 22314-2228 (tel: +1 703 519 8160, fax: +1 703 548 2867, Telex: 510-600-0899).
