International Symposium on Processing XML Efficiently:
Overcoming Limits on Space, Time, or Bandwidth

Monday August 10, 2009
Hotel Europa, Montrial, Canada

Chair: Michael Kay, Saxonica

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.

Submission Instructions

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

Hyde Park Speaker's Corner

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.

There is nothing so practical as a good theory
