   SD 2000 East Call for Abstracts

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]
  • From: Elliotte Rusty Harold <elharo@metalab.unc.edu>
  • To: xml-dev@xml.org
  • Date: Tue, 18 Apr 2000 12:27:29 -0400

The call for proposals for SD2000 East, to be held in Washington D.C. 
from October 29th to November 2nd, 2000, is up. I chair the XML track 
for this conference and we're looking for proposals that cover the 
broad range of XML technologies.

The audience for this show is very developer heavy. Attendees tend to 
be programmers working in the trenches to implement solutions. The 
evaluation forms tell us they want meaty, technical talks that show 
by example how to use XML/Java/C++/etc. Thus in the XML track we're 
looking for talks that pick one aspect of XML (e.g. schemas, XLinks, 
DOM, etc.) and explain and demonstrate it in as much detail as is 
feasible in 90 minutes.

Our audience is not very patient with vague presentations that hype 
technologies without actually showing them in action. In particular, 
we really don't need more broad, overview introductions to XML and 
why it's cool. What we do need are presentations on specific topics 
like SOAP, Internationalization, or Processing XML with Python that 
spend maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the time explaining why that particular 
technology is useful, (not why XML in general is useful, assume the 
audience already knows that) and the rest of the time actually 
showing the audience how to use the technology you're presenting.

Deadline for abstracts is May 1, and they may be submitted online at
