OASIS Co-Sponsors XTech XML Developers Conference
Boston, MA, USA. February 24, 2000.
OASIS, the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards, will co-sponsor the XTech 2000 Developers Conference, February 27 - March 2 in San Jose, California. Hosted by GCA, XTech 2000 brings together experts, developers and technical managers for an intense look at the current XML technology and applications of the standard. The conference will feature an exposition where developers and suppliers of XML technology will demonstrate the interoperability of their tools.
"XTech is unique because of the people behind it. The conference is led by the organizers of the working group that created XML," explained Laura Walker, executive director of OASIS. "XTech co-chairs, Jon Bosak (Sun Microsystems), Tim Bray (Textuality) and David Megginson (Megginson Technologies) have assembled an exceptional program that examines how far XML has come since its introduction and where it's going in the future."
Highlights of XTech include Town Hall meetings where representatives from the W3C's XML Schema and XML Query Working Groups will take the stage in two separate open-mike town-hall forums.
XTech presentations will discuss the theory and the practical application of XML and its related standards, including XLink and XSL. Sessions cover the technical underpinnings of XML implementation and how XML works on different operating platforms and systems, including Linux and Java.
OASIS members, many of whom will be presenters at the conference, will meet in technical committees at XTech. Organizations or individuals interested in attending OASIS technical meetings should contact Scott McGrath (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
