                Call for Participation
             Extreme Markup Languages 2002
        Sponsored by IDEAlliance (Alexandria, Va.)

    Not for beginners, nor the technically faint. This is the edge, the hard bits,
    the theory behind the practice, the practice that outstrips current theory --
    the Extreme.

    Extreme Markup Languages is:
        - an intense 3.7-day conference preceded by two days of tutorials
        - devoted to technical aspects of markup, markup languages, markup systems
          and markup applications, and everything touched by the question of
          how best to allow information to describe itself.
        - a 4-day coffee jag

    It's not to everyone's taste: too technical for some, too theoretical for some,
    too abstract for some -- and perfect for some.

    At Extreme Markup Languages software developers, markup theorists,
    philosophers of information, knowledge representers (and presenters!), and the
    kind of people who like hanging around with them devote the better part of a
    week to the unfettered pursuit of better understanding of problems of
    information management, knowledge systems, markup, formal languages, the search
    for a better parser interface, and the development of markup-related software.

          Moderation in the organization of information is no virtue.
          Extremism in the investigation of markup is no vice.
