O'Reilly & Associates (my employer) is hosting the O'Reilly Open Source
Convention from July 22-26 in San Diego, CA.
The XTech XML conference is part of that conference, and we're hoping to
continue last year's success with presentations which either highlight Open
Source work within the XML community or demonstrate XML's usefulness to the
broader Open Source community. (There is also a separate track devoted to
the Apache XML Project's work.)
Information on submitting proposals is available at:
There are a few key areas that would be especially interesting, though the
conference will certainly go beyond these areas:
* Schemas - W3C XML Schema, RELAX NG, Schematron, etc.
* Presenting XML - SVG, XSL-FO, CSS, XHTML
* Modularization - XHTML, SVG, SMIL, other approaches
* Web Services - too many acronyms to list
* i18n/l10n - Unicode, making XML work in non-Unicode environs, etc.
Presentations should be aimed at a 45- or 90-minute time slot, though full
day and half day tutorials are another option.
There's a definite bias toward Open Source at this show, but more general
XML presentations are definitely welcome. Marketing talks will be rejected
outright, and speakers must submit their own proposals.
Proposals are due March 1, and presentations will be due April 29.
