Balisage is an annual conference devoted to the theory and practice of descriptive markup and related technologies for structuring and managing information.
Paper proposals and nominations for peer reviewers are solicited for Balisage 2011, to be held 2-5 August 2011 in Montreal.
Each year, Balisage gathers together an eclectic mix of participants interested in markup, and puts them together in one of the world's great cities for three and half days of discussion about points of interest in the use of descriptive markup to build strong, lasting information systems. Practitioners and theorists, vendors and users, tool-users and tool-makers, all provide their perspectives at Balisage.
As always, papers at Balisage can address any aspect of the use of markup and markup languages to represent information and build information systems. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
- XML and related technologies - Non-XML markup languages - Implementation experience with XML parsing, XSLT processors, XQuery processors, XProc implementations, Topic Map engines, or any markup-related technology - Case studies of markup design and deployment. - Recent and upcoming milestones in standards development. - Semantics of markup languages - JSON and XML - the future of XML (if any) - the future of descriptive markup (if any)
Balisage is a peer-reviewed conference. Our electronic proceedings are freely available as part of the Balisage Series on Markup Technologies.
