MARKUP TECHNOLOGIES DETAILS
MT'99 will focus on technical issues relating to the design, development, and deployment of a variety of markup technologies including but not limited to SGML, XML, and related standards.
This conference provides a three-day forum for technical (sometimes highly technical) presentations, question and answer sessions, and informal discussions of markup, data-bases, query languages, schema issues, stylesheet languages and perhaps behavior sheets, and more.
Papers at Markup Technologies must address some aspect of markup from a theoretical or practical standpoint, consist of all new material, and be detailed and rigorous. All papers will be peer reviewed to ensure high quality and technical merit.
The Technical Committee of Markup Technologies seeks applicants to participate in the conference's Peer Review Panel. Peer Review Panel members will review several potential papers for the conference, suggesting whether the paper should be accepted, where in the conference it should be placed, and ways in which the presentation could be improved.
All papers will be sent to the Peer Reviewers without attribution, and any suggestions for improvements will be forwarded to the author without attribution. In other words, this will be a double-blind review process.
Peer Reviews play a key role in maintaining the quality
and diversity of the presentations at a conference. If you
have any questions about the Peer Review process or the
role of members of the Peer review Panel please contact:
B. Tommie Usdin firstname.lastname@example.org
Deborah A. Lapeyre email@example.com
C. M. Sperberg-McQueen firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in participating in Markup Technologies as a Peer Reviewer, please complete the peer review application form at http://www.mulberrytech.com/MT99/MTPeer or contact MT99@mulberrytech.com.
Paper presentations will be 30 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes for questions. Presentations must be content- or technically-oriented; product or service descriptions or advertisements are not appropriate. Case studies should focus on the problem(s) and approaches to solving them. No sales pitches will be tolerated. All papers will be submitted for blind review to a Peer Review Panel to aid in selection. Papers will be chosen based on technical merit, interest, applicability, and how well they fit a coherent and balanced technical program.
All presenters must agree to: Give their presentation and answer questions in English, Follow the Markup Technologies speaker and audio-visual guidelines, and Register for the conference.
One speaker discounted registration fee of $250 will be available for each paper, if the revised paper is received on schedule. All papers will be published in both the print and electronic conference proceedings.
Proposals to speak at Markup Technologies MUST be in the
form of FULL PAPERS. This policy is different from many
other GCA Conferences. Would-be speakers who submit
abstracts without full papers will be rejected. Papers
must be submitted in SGML or valid XML according to the
Markup Technologies Paper DTD which is available in both
SGML and XML forms at:
The DTD is heavily commented. Please read these comments - they are likely to answer many of your questions.
Markup Technologies tutorials may be one or two days long, and will be intended for a technical audience. Tutorials may be new, but we also welcome tutorials that have been given successfully elsewhere. Tutorial instructors will receive free registration for the full conference and a copy of the conference proceedings.
