Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder that the call for participation for JATS-Con 202 is out! And
you can register now.


JATS-Con (http://jats.nlm.nih.gov/jats-con/) is the user conference for the
NISO Z39.96-2015 Journal Article Tag Suite. JATS-Con is a peer-reviewed
conference hosted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)
at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) on the NIH campus in Bethesda MD.
The next conference will take place on April 28 & 29, 2020.

JATS-Con is seeking papers relevant to the use or non-use of JATS or an
extension such as the Book Interchange Tag Suite (BITS), TaxPub, or the ISO
Standards Tag Set (ISOSTS). 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 models in a workflow
    * tools or resources developed or desired for working with content tagged
using the 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.
