Call for Participation
Balisage: The Markup Conference 2010

Got Markup? (of course you do!)

Want to get more out of it? Want to stretch it to 
the limit? Come to Balisage 2010, the 
peer-reviewed conference that makes you a markup 
geek (or at least feel like one)! Whether you're 
into theory or practice, this is the place to be 
to find out where the cutting edge is-and go 
beyond it. Balisage looks at every aspect of 
markup, from its theoretical and philosophical 
underpinnings to the newest and coolest ways of 
applying it to real-world problems.

Got Something To Say About Markup? (of course you do!)

We want to hear from you at Balisage 2010. We 
welcome submissions on any aspect of markup and 
structured information in theory or practice, 
generic or application specific, including by not 
limited to:

     * principles for the design, development, and documentation of
       markup vocabularies
     * applications of XML, Topic Maps, and related specifications
     * use or implementation of XSLT, XQuery, XProc, and other tools for
       processing marked up data
     * XML and databases
     * libraries and designs for supporting XML (or other forms of
       descriptive markup) in general-purpose programming languages
     * efficiency in XML processing
     * techniques for quality assurance in markup systems
     * handling overlapping structures in markup
     * alternatives to XML
     * formal models of markup and structured information
     * principles and practice of data validation (including uses of XSD,
       Relax NG, Schematron, and other schema languages)
     * best practice in the organization of XML workflows
     * problems of data longevity and reusability
     * fundamental principles of information structure and organization
     * achieving interoperability in applications of common vocabularies
