CALL FOR PARTICIPATION International Symposium on Processing XML Efficiently: Overcoming Limits on Space, Time, or Bandwidth
Monday August 10, 2009 Hotel Europa, Montrial, Canada
Developers have said it: "XML is too slow!", where "slow" can mean many things including elapsed time, throughput, latency, memory use, and bandwidth consumption. The aim of this one-day symposium is to understand these problems better and to explore and share approaches to solving them.
Proposals for presentations at the Processing Symposium may address any aspect of processing XML efficiently. We welcome:
* Theoretical discussions * Practical experience and case studies * Product talks (if clearly identified as such) * Discussions of: - software design to facilitate processing - document design to facilitate processing - management of XML applications in a processing-intensive environment - measuring efficiency of XML processing * and related topics and approaches.
Submissions are due on or before April 24, 2009. To submit a proposal to the Processing XML Symposium send email to info@xxxxxxxxxxxx, including:
1. Your name, email, affiliation, and telephone number 2. Title of your presentation 3. Short description of your topic (150 words) 4. Detailed description of your topic and presentation. (It would be a convenience to the organizers of symposium submissions were in XML according to the guidelines and model for Balisage submissions, but this is not required.) 5. Biographical information on all authors 6. Any other information you think will help the conference committee evaluate your proposed presentation
During the day, Symposium attendees may submit mini-proposals for five minute time-slots; these five-minute presentations will be given during the "Hyde Park Speaker's Corner" session in the afternoon. Speakers will be encouraged to divide their five minutes into two parts: three minutes during which they may state opinions, preferences, or experiences relating to processing XML efficiently, and two minutes during which the other attendees may react. If there are more proposals than can be accommodated proposals from people who have not already spoken will be preferred, and random selections from the remaining proposals will be made. As at the "Speaker's Corner" in London's Hyde Park, there will be virtually no restrictions on allowed content. However, the Symposium's organizers will terminate presentations that are not clearly related to the symposium topic, that are disrespectful of others or their points of view, or that are still incomplete after five minutes have elapsed.
