TALKS Are 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 on the technical program. All proposals will be submitted for blind review to a Peer Review Panel to aid in selection. Talks will be chosen based on technical merit, interest, applicability, and how well they fit the technical program. All presenters must agree to: give their presentation and answer questions in English, follow the SGML/XML'97 speaker and audio-visual guidelines, and register for the conference. A speaker discount will be available for one presenter per talk, if the full paper is received on schedule. All talks will be published in the print and electronic conference proceedings. Papers will be submitted in SGML using the SGML/XML'97 conference paper DTD.
