Hello taggers,

Those contributing to XMLVersioning-41 may be interested in a one-day  symposium on the subject, to be held in Montral along with the Balisage conference. And, excellent versioning logo :)

International Symposium on Versioning XML Documents and Vocabularies
Monday August 11, 2008
Hotel Europa, Montréal, Canada

A one-day discussion of issues relating to 
revision, variation, and managing change in XML 
documents and vocabularies. Things change, and 
sometimes things turn out to be different than we 
thought they were. (And sometimes we decide to 
revise them.) As a result:
     * documents are modified
     * vocabularies are revised
     * document collections become heterogeneous

Proposals for presentations at the Versioning 
Symposium may address any aspect of versioning 
XML documents and/or vocabularies. We welcome:
     * Theoretical discussions
     * Practical experience and case studies
     * Product talks (if clearly identified as such)
     * Discussions of:
           o design to accommodate change
           o change tracking and management
           o documents and document versioning
           o vocabularies and vocabulary versioning
           o management of document variants
              + varying requirements such as documentation of
                changing/multiple products
              + variations because of historical accident such as
                transcription errors
