managing information.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Paper proposals and nominations for peer reviewers are solicited for
Balisage 2011, to be held 2-5 August 2011 in Montreal.

Each year, Balisage gathers together an eclectic mix of participants
interested in markup, and puts them together in one of the world's
great cities for three and half days of discussion about points of
interest in the use of descriptive markup to build strong, lasting
information systems. Practitioners and theorists, vendors and users,
tool-users and tool-makers, all provide their perspectives at
Balisage.

Nominations for paper proposals and peer reviewers and are solicited.

As always, papers at Balisage can address any aspect of the use of
markup and markup languages to represent information and build
information systems. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  - XML and related technologies
  - Non-XML markup languages
  - Implementation experience with XML parsing, XSLT processors,
    XQuery processors, XProc implementations, Topic Map engines, or
    any markup-related technology
  - Case studies of markup design and deployment.
  - Recent and upcoming milestones in standards development.
  - Semantics of markup languages
  - JSON and XML
  - the future of XML (if any)
  - the future of descriptive markup (if any)

Balisage is a peer-reviewed conference. Our electronic proceedings are
freely available as part of the Balisage Series on Markup Technologies.
