Once again, I'll be chairing the XML track for Software Development
2005 West in Santa Clara next March. The Call for Proposals for is
now live.


Besides XML, tracks include Web Services, Java, Emerging
Technologies, C++, Requirements & Analysis, .NET, and Mobile
Development. Plus we have two new tracks this year: System Security
and Scripting. Most sessions are 90 minute classes, but we also have
room for half and full-day tutorials (I prefer half-day tutorials in
the XML track), Birds-of-a-feather sessions, and panels.

Submissions are due by August 6th. As of today, July 27, we have relatively few submissions in the XML track so unless everyone's waiting till the last minute to submit, the chance of getting a proposal accepted for this track is relatively high.

For the XML track, we're interested in practical sessions covering
all aspects of XML. This is not specifically an XML show, so we tend
to find that our audience responds better to more practical, how-to,
basic sessions as opposed to more theoretical, high-level sessions.
For instance, a simple introduction to XQuery would go over better
than a detailed comparison of XQuery optimization techniques. One
thing previous attendees have told us is that they'd like to see more
new sessions at each show, so we're going to be looking
preferentially for talks that have not previously been given at SD
