Balisage 2016 program posted

Readers of this list may be interested in the Balisage conference,
which focuses on applications of markup.  This year's program
includes two talks which prominently feature XForms applications,
one at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology and
one in a shoe-string academic project.

I hope to see other XForms enthusiasts at Balisage this year!

Balisage: The Markup Conference
2016 Program Now Available

Balisage: where serious markup practitioners and theoreticians meet
every August.

The 2016 program includes papers discussing reducing ambiguity in
linked-open-data annotations, the visualization of XSLT execution
patterns, automatic recognition of grant- and funding-related
information in scientific papers, construction of an interactive
interface to assist cybersecurity analysts, rules for graceful
extension and customization of standard vocabularies, case studies of
agile schema development, a report on XML encoding of subtitles for
video, an extension of XPath to file systems, handling soft hyphens in
historical texts, an automated validity checker for formatted pages,
one no-angle-brackets editing interface for scholars of German family
names and another for scholars of Roman legal history, and a survey of
non-XML markup such as Markdown.

XML In, Web Out: A one-day Symposium on the sub rosa XML that powers
an increasing number of websites will be held on Monday, August 1.

If you are interested in open information, reusable documents, and
vendor and application independence, then you need descriptive markup,
and Balisage is the conference you should attend. Balisage brings
together document architects, librarians, archivists, computer
scientists, XML practitioners, XSLT and XQuery programmers,
implementers of XSLT and XQuery engines and other markup-related
software, Topic-Map enthusiasts, semantic-Web evangelists, standards
developers, academics, industrial researchers, government and NGO
staff, industrial developers, practitioners, consultants, and the
world's greatest concentration of markup theorists. Some participants
are busy designing replacements for XML while other still use SGML
(and know why they do).

Discussion is open, candid, and unashamedly technical.
