    [ UPDATE: 10 XQuery system demos in the ''Caffeine and Code''
      joint coffee and demonstrations break.  Updated program below. ]

Please join us for XIME-P 2006, the third workshop in the XIME-P series,
dedicated to research and industrial efforts on the implementation,
utilization, and overall prospects of XQuery.

XQuery development is happening on the verge of databases, document
processing, and programming languages.  This ''heterogeneity'' in
contributions and attendees has been a source of lively debate and an
interesting technical program for previous XIME-P editions.  In this
spirit, XIME-P 2006 features a mixture of 7 talks, discussions,
10 system demos, and a concluding panel.  A keynote address by Don  
of IBM Almaden - a lead of the W3C XQuery Working Group - resumes the
program after the workshop lunch (included in registration).

Last but not least, all odds are that after 8 years of work XQuery
will become a standard at around the time of SIGMOD 2006, making 2006 a
landmark year for XQuery as well as XIME-P.

XIME-P 2006 is held in the Renaissance Chicago Hotel, i.e., the SIGMOD
2006 conference hotel, all-day on Friday, June 30, 2006.   The workshop
room is Riviere Ballroom D (3rd floor).
