        Subject: [ANN] Complete Balisage 2009 Program posted

The complete Balisage: The Markup Conference 2009 program, including 
late-breaking news, has just been posted.

   * Detailed program: http://www.balisage.net/2009/Program.html
   * Schedule at a Glance:  http://www.balisage.net/2009/At-A-Glance.html

Balisage 2009 is the place to come to think about XML, and about 
markup. The Balisage program varies from the practical to the 
theoretical, with a little heresy mixed in:

   * Practical
      - pipelines
      - creating XML schemas from UML
      - editing tools
      - version control for XML documents
      - checking and validating XML documents

   * Real-world Uses of XML
      - healthcare
      - large humanities datasets
      - archives

   * Overlap and complex documents
      - TEI feature structures
      - encoding non-hierarchical structures in RDF
      - tagging and manipulating structures that are not well managed
         as trees

   * Proposed changes
      - to XML Namespaces
      - extensions to XPath

   * Theoretical
      - nature of documents
      - analysis of marked-up texts
      - the process of marking up documents

   * Future
      - XML in the browser
      - visual designers
      - XML and open data

Balisage is the place for data modelers, software engineers, 
librarians, ontologists and taxonomists, document managers, standards 
developers, system architects, archivists, markup theoreticians and 
practitioners, and kindred spirits to talk with each other. Indulge 
your inner markup geek at Balisage 2009 this August in Montreal.
