Balisage 2010 Program Announced


Rockville, Maryland.  The organizing committee has released the
program for "Balisage 2010: The Markup Conference" to be held in  
Montreal from 3 to 6 August, 2010.

"Balisage: The Markup Conference" ( http://www.balisage.net/ http://www.balisage.net 
) is an annual peer-reviewed XML conference: how to create markup;  
what it means; hierarchies and overlap; modeling; taxonomies;  
transformation; query, searching, and retrieval; presentation and  
accessibility; making systems that make markup dance (or dance faster  
to a different tune in a smaller space).

Come to lovely Montreal, Canada from August 3rd to 6th for four action- 
packed days of angle brackets! Here's a baker dozen (or so) sampling  
from the much larger list of Balisage 2010 presentations:

gXML, a new approach to cultivating XML trees in Java
Java integration of XQuery - an information unit oriented approach
Reverse modeling for domain-driven engineering of publishing technology
Managing semantics in XML vocabularies
XML pipeline processing in the browser
Where XForms meets the glass: Bridging between data and interaction  
Schema component paths for schema analysis
A streaming XSLT processor
Multi-structured documents and the emergence of annotations vocabularies
Processing arbitrarily large XML using a persistent DOM
Automatic upconversion using XProc

        Subject: Digital Humanities Workshops at Brown University

Please circulate:

The Brown University Women Writers Project is pleased to announce a  
new series of workshops on topics in TEI encoding and tools for  
digital humanists. These workshops are aimed at humanities faculty,  
librarians, students, and anyone interested in getting a strong  
introduction to digital humanities concepts, methods, and tools. Each  
workshop combines hands-on practice with discussion and lectures, and  
participants are encouraged to work with their own project materials.  
These small group events offer a wonderful opportunity to learn about  
other digital projects as well as to master important methods and  
concepts in an exploratory setting.

More information, including detailed workshop descriptions and  
registration information, can be found at http://www.wwp.brown.edu/encoding/workshops/
