Hi all -

It was great meeting everyone at the W3C Plenary. I wanted to point out two 
talks relevant to RDF being given at the XML DevCon Spring 2001 conference 
(http://www.xmldevcon2001.com) in NYC next month  - April 8-11 at the New 
York Marriott Marquis hotel:

Introduction to RDF: Dr. Jonathan Borden will offer a practical 
introduction to RDF, covering a schema for RDF representation of healthcare 
information, and techniques to RDF enable general XML information. 
4/9/2001, 6:45 - 8:15pm ET.
http://www.xmldevcon2001.com/NY/html/session.php?code=N14

Combining RDF and XPath to Automate Web Services: Uche Ogbuji describes a 
method of using XPath to establish rules for extracting RDF data from 
general XML documents, and using the experimental RDF Inference Language 
(RIL) to express rules for automating processing of the data once the RDF 
model has been populated. 4/11/2001, 9:20 - 10:35am ET.

I remember quite a few people at the plenary and IG meeting were interested 
in XQuery and related query language development. This morning, Camelot 
Communications put out a release highlighting *4* sessions relevant to 
Query Languages at the same show:

There's a few other talks that touch upon schemas, Web services, SQL and 
the like that may also be of interest. The full list of sessions is here:

I was surprised there weren't more Semantic Web related talks. There is a 
CFP out for both the London and San Jose shows this coming October.

Hopefully we'll start seeing more discussion and talks on RSS/RDF/RQL at 
future shows.
