Balisage: The Markup Conference
2015 Program Now Available
Balisage: where serious markup practitioners and theoreticians meet every August.
The 2015 program includes case studies from journal publishing, regulatory compliance systems, and large-scale document systems; formatting XML for print and browser-based print formatting; visualizing XML structures and documents. Technical papers cover such topics as: MathML; XSLT; use of XML in government and the humanities; XQuery; design of authoring systems; uses of markup that vary from poetry to spreadsheets to cyber justice; and hyperdocument link management. The conference will be preceded by a one-day symposium on Cultural Heritage Markup.
Are you interested in open information, reusable documents, and vendor and application independence? Then you need descriptive markup, and Balisage is the conference you should attend. Balisage brings together document architects, librarians, archivists, computer scientists, XML wizards, XSLT and XQuery programmers, implementers of XSLT and XQuery engines and other markup-related software, Topic-Map enthusiasts, semantic-Web evangelists, standards developers, academics, industrial researchers, government and NGO staff, industrial developers, practitioners, consultants, and the world's greatest concentration of markup theorists. Some participants are busy designing replacements for XML while other still use SGML (and know why they do). Discussion is open, candid, and unashamedly technical.
