Um, who are you, and why should we support what looks like at first
glance like a purely money-making exercise on your part?

Your web-site makes it clear that you don't actually yet have "XML
Gurus" in place to provide the technical material you need.  You refer 
to "The industry's recognized XML experts led by co-technical Chair,
Ken North and Max Dolgicer", but you actually nowhere provide a list
of these folk, or of your faculty.

Your registration form doesn't even include the cost before requiring
details.  Your press release page is empty.  I may be getting
suspicious in my old age, but this looks like a scam to me.
