Call for Presentations: XML Developers' Day 1998.03.27

A one-day technical conference for XML developers will be held Friday, March 27, in Seattle, Washington. The event constitutes the last day of the GCA XML Conference (

XML Developers' Day is a single-track event devoted entirely to technical reports on the latest developments in XML implementation. If you are engaged in the construction of any software that works with XML -- converters, parsers, servers, browsers, editors, or XML-based vertical applications -- here is your chance to share your work with an audience that can understand and appreciate it.

Since stylesheet-based rendering is part of XML publishing, developers of tools that support XSL or DSSSL are invited to show their latest offerings as well. We're also open to presentations on XML-based languages (CML, OFX, etc.) and related efforts that might have a significant impact on the future of XML (RDF, XML-Data, etc.) if they are of particular interest to XML developers.

Vendors of commercial tools can participate, but they must confine their presentations to the technical aspects of current XML products in development. Table space will be made available for the distribution of product announcements and commercial literature.


The registration fee for XML Developers' Day is $275 for GCA members and $390 for non-GCA members (see the registration page below for conference and tutorial rates). This is mighty inexpensive for an inside update on the very latest activity in this field. You can register at:

N.B.: Presenters get in free.


If you would like to give a report at this event, send a paragraph or two describing your presentation, based on a conservative estimate of the status of your project as it will stand on March 27, to Jon Bosak ( Also include a description of the audio-visual equipment you will need for your presentation and an estimate of its duration. Please include the phrase "XML Dev Day" somewhere in the subject line of your message.

Since we want up-to-the-minute reports on activities in progress, there will be no published proceedings, and therefore you need not submit your entire presentation in advance. But please try to make your forecasted description as accurate as possible so that we can choose the most interesting and relevant submissions.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 27.
