JATS-Con (http://jats.nlm.nih.gov/jats-con/) is the user conference for the
Journal Article Tag Suite, that is, for users of any of the "NLM DTDs", soon
to be standardized as NISO Z39.96. JATS-Con is a peer-reviewed conference
hosted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the
National Library of Medicine on the NIH campus in Bethesda MD on September 26
& 27, 2011.

JATS-Con is seeking papers relevant to the use or non-use of the Journal
Article Tag Suite. We are open to suggestions on what participants in the
Journal Article Tag Suite Conference may find of interest. The following
topics are suggestions only:

    * the creation, presentation, manipulation, and/or storage of content
tagged according to one of the models in the Tag Suite
    * modification or customization of one of the models in the Tag Suite or
creation of a new model using the Tag Suite
    * location of the Tag Suite models in a workflow
    * tools or resources developed or desired for working with content tagged
using the Journal Article Tag Suite
    * desired enhancements to the Tag Suite

Presentations will be 35 minutes long, in English, followed by 10 minutes of
Questions and Answers or audience discussion.

Please submit your paper proposals on the JATS-Con
