The International Symposium on Quality Assurance and Quality Control in XML will be held on Monday August 6, 2012 at the Hotel Europa, Montréal, Canada, the day before Balisage: The Markup Conference begins in the same location.
This one-day discussion of issues relating to Quality Control and Quality Assurance in the XML environment will begin with an introductory overview of quality-control issues in complex XML workflows by Dale Waldt of LexisNexis, followed by a discussion of quality control of schemas and vocabulary definitions from Eric van der Vlist of Dyomedea. Case studies reporting on quality assurance techniques used by the U.S. National Library of Medicine's PubMed Central, Portico, Scholars Portal, and the American Chemical Society make up the central part of the day. Steve DeRose of OpenAmplify will discuss ways in which text analytics tools can change the boundaries of the validatable, discussing both existing technology and open challenges. The final part of the day is devoted to an open-mike discussion among symposium participants and to a concluding summary and round-up of the day by Mary McRae.
