------------------------------------------------------------ CALL FOR REPORTS: XML DEVELOPERS DAY AUGUST 21 A technical conference for XML developers will be held Thursday, August 21, in Montreal, Canada. The event will immediately follow four days of HyTime tutorials and conference sessions in the same location and, like them, will be hosted by the Graphic Communications Association (GCA). 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 development of any software that works with XML -- converters, parsers, servers, clients, or XML-based vertical applications -- here is your chance to share your work with an audience that can understand and appreciate it. The XML specification includes a subset of DSSSL, so implementors of DSSSL tools that work with XML are invited to report on their efforts as well. 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. If you would like to give a report at this event, please send a paragraph or two describing your presentation, based on a conservative estimate of the status of your project as it will stand on August 21, to Marion Elledge of the GCA ( Also include a description of the audio-visual equipment you will need for your presentation. 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 the conference organizers can choose the most interesting and relevant submissions. Demonstrations of running software will be given special consideration. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 1997.
