Extreme Markup Languages® 2006

Extreme Markup Languages® 2006

August 7-11, 2006 Montréal, Canada

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.

Call for Participation:

Looking for a theory to apply? Got one to market? Want a cause to support for
your next open-source project? Got a good implementation story to tell? Have a
new approach to handling overlapping markup or to treating non-XML data as
if it were XML? Any opinions on the future of XML or one of the XML-related
specifications? Do you make real demands of markup technology? Do you
have an approach to modeling, creation, manipulation, or display of markup?
If you do, we want to hear from you at Extreme!

Extreme welcomes contributions on any topic related to markup and
knowledge management, including (but emphatically not limited to):

  • Theory of markup languages

  • XML authoring, parsing, storage, and processing

  • Fundamentals of – or advanced topics in – knowledge
    representation and knowledge management

  • Indexing and searching XML documents

  • Topic maps

  • Virtual XML; treating non-XML data as if it were in XML

  • Binary formats for XML

  • Reinventing SGML

  • Non-SGML-based markup systems

  • RDF and semantic web technologies

  • Validation of markup and/or data

  • Semantics of data, markup, and/or processes

  • Markup of overlapping structures

  • XML and databases

  • Practical tests of theoretical predictions

  • Theoretical – or at least thoughtful – evaluation of practical

Rumor has it that some folks are afraid they are not “geek enough”
for Extreme. Hold on to your socks! If you find the topics above
interesting we think you’re geek enough for Extreme. And we think
you may have something to offer.

Call for Posters

Extreme has a tradition of lively poster sessions.
Posters are an ideal presentation form for material that is short, graphical, or best read carefully. Posters provide an opportunity to present your ideas and to discuss them with conference attendees throughout the conference.

Reports on Extreme 2004

These three serious reports on the 2004 conference presentations also find time to mention
the “curiously-decorated” hotel, hats, and a short heard-in-the-halls:
