         Subject: Extreme Markup Languages 2006 Program Posted!

The program for Extreme Markup Languages 2006 is now available at:

Topics at Extreme 2006 will range from XSLT, RDF, XPath, Ropic Maps,
XML schema languages, overlap, SGML, and metadata to design and
promulgation of tag sets.

Presentations that may be of particular interest to the participants
in Humanist include:

    "Tag set promulgation panel" Jeff Beck, Jon Bosak, Patrick Durusau,
         Daniel Pitti, Norm Walsh
    "MultiX: an XML-based formalism to encode multi-structured
         documents" by Nouredinne Chatti, Sylvie Calabretto, Jean Marie Pinon
    "Rabbit/duck grammars: a validation method for overlapping structures"
         by C.M. Sperberg-McQueen
    "From Metadata to personal semantic webs" by Eric Freese
    "Metadata enrichment for digital preservation" by David Dubin,
        Joel Plutchak & Joe Futrelle
    "Conveying meaning through space and time using XML: Semantics of
         interoperability and persistence" by Ann Wrightson

Pre-conference tutorials that may be of particular interest to Humanist
participants include:
      "Introduction to Open Document Format" by J. David Eisenberg
      "XML Schema Languages" by John Cowan
      "Introduction to XPath 2.0 (for those who know XPath 1.0)" by Wendell=
         Piez and Deborah A. Lapeyre
      "Introduction to XSLT 2.0" by Norman Walsh


Extreme is an open marketplace of theories about markup and all the things
that they support or that support them: the difficult cases in publishing,
linguistics, transformation, searching, indexing, storage and retrieval,
the things you wish you could do in XML so much that you're thinking of
creating your own markup system. At Extreme, markup enthusiasts gather
each year to trade in ideas, not to convince management to buy new stuff.
Extreme actively seeks controversy, not just the same old applications.
