A peer-reviewed technical conference. An unfettered festival of
unconventional markup. Pointy-brackets, pointed questions, and
sharp ideas. Nearly a week of geek speak.

             Extreme Markup Languages. 2005
               Produced by IDEAlliance

August 1-5, 2005
Hotel Europa, Montrial, Canada

Extreme Markup Languages is devoted to the theory and practice of
markup languages from industrial, academic, and other points of view.
It differs from other conferences partly in its unapologetic emphasis
on technical subjects and problems on the frontiers of current
practice, and partly in the participants it attracts. Extreme
typically has an unusually high concentration of markup theorists
computer scientists, linguists, taxonomists, publishers,
lexicographers, typographers, software developers, librarians, and
other people you want to spend time with - also anarchists,
curmudgeons, and deep thinkers - and a lower than average
concentration of managers in need of a clue.

Topics are likely to include:
 -  XML querying and searching
 -  Knowledge representation: Topic Maps, RDF graphs, and semantic
 -  Constraint languages: DTDs and schemas
 -  Metadata registries and unregistered metadata
 -  Anthropology of markup adoption patterns
 -  XML databases and content management systems
 -  Performance and other deployment issues
 -  Making the world mark-upable: ontologies, taxonomies, controlled
       vocabularies, and PSI
 -  The Next Big Edge Case
 -  Chicken lips, overlap, and other things you can't talk about
       without using your hands
