The XML 2002 program includes "more than 150 presentations which will address current and emerging trends in e-business, ebXML, wireless communications, B2B, content management, web standards, syndication and metadata, security issues, graphics, XML tools, schemas, topic maps, and many, many other key issues relating to today's XML technologies."
From the XML 2002 website: "Today, XML is being used to solve real business needs. More and more businesses are beginning to use XML to get all their technology working together. Government agencies are also starting to set up their large-scale infrastructure using XML. Like many other robust, real solutions to complicated problems, XML is not a magic bullet. There are many pieces to the puzzle and many issues involving interoperability, integration, and implementation. The goal of XML 2002 is to help attendees put the pieces of the XML puzzle together and teach them best practices. This includes finding out the latest technology and techniques, learning from past mistakes, and benefiting from the successes that others have had."
From the announcement:
"XML 2002 will once again bring together the world's leading experts on XML technology and product solutions," said David Steinhardt, President of IDEAlliance.
