Balisage: The Markup Conference
   August 12 - 15, 2008
   (workshop: August 11, 2008)

Montreal in August has always been the place and time for serious
markup geeks to meet, and this year there is a new conference for

The intellectual successor to the Extreme Markup Languages
conference, Balisage is designed to meet the needs of markup
theoreticians and practitioners who are pushing the boundaries of the
field. It's all about the markup: how to create it; 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) - in short, changing the world and the web
through the power of marked-up information.
