Symposium on Markup Vocabulary Ecosystems
a Balisage pre-conference symposium

Monday, 30 July 2018
CAMBRiA Hotel, Rockville, MD USA

Successful shared markup vocabularies (tag sets, document types, schemas, call
them what you will), far from being just lists of tags, are the centers of
complex ecosystems that support documentation activities while drawing support
from both user communities and vendors. A complex ecosystem supports and is
supported by these vocabularies. People spend significant time, energy, and
money to create, adapt, adopt, modify, maintain, and promulgate the tag set.
Users buy and customize tools to create and use content tagged to it and
change their processes and tune their requirements to the (often only implied)
world view behind the tag set. Vendors specialize in it.


Do you use a shared markup vocabulary? Tell us how your experience with it
could be improved, or what aspects of the experience you find particularly
helpful. Have you modified your processes or infrastructure to accommodate a
shared vocabulary? Why? Are you happy you did it?

Are you the creator or maintainer of a shared markup vocabulary? Is there
something in your vocabulary documentation that is unusually useful? Is there
a tool to create subsets (or supersets) of your vocabulary? Why? How does it
work? What innovative aspects of your vocabulary ecosystem might be useful in
other communities?

Do you help users of a vocabulary you do not control? Do you provide
additional/alternate documentation? Usage guidance? Examples? Tools? Do you
make or share business rule checkers? Is this for the whole community or a
sub-set? How do you contribute to the vocabulary ecosystem?

Would a shared markup vocabulary be useful to you? What would it take to
create and promulgate that vocabulary?
