XML Conference & Exposition 2002 
Call for Presentations, Tutorials, Exhibits, and Sponsors 
December 8-13, 2002
Baltimore Convention Center 
Baltimore, MD U.S.A.


Putting the Pieces Together

Today, XML is being used to solve real business needs. We are finding that
more and more businesses are beginning to concentrate on getting all their
technology working together using XML. Government agencies are also starting
to set up large-scale infrastructure using XML, which have many of the same
requirements.  In any event, everyone currently using XML has found that
like many other robust, real solutions, working with XML can be a lot of
work. There are many pieces to the puzzle and issues around its
interoperability, integration, and implementation.  This is why we hold
events like "XML 2002". 

The goal of XML 2002 is to help attendees put the pieces of the XML puzzle
together - thus teaching them best practices. This includes finding out the
latest technology/techniques, learning from past mistakes, and benefiting
from the successes. 

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. We are looking for top-quality tutorials and
presentations that will help attendees find out how XML can solve THEIR
problems. Attendees want to hear this information from YOU - the expert.  

Whether as a speaker, tutorial presenter, exhibitor, and/or sponsor, you
will find that XML 2002 is the best forum to share your knowledge and/or
demonstrate your products and services.  No where else will you find such
high-quality attendees. 

> Preliminary Event Schedule
The event is currently scheduled to have two days of tutorials followed by
four days of conference sessions. The vendor exhibition is scheduled to run
during the first three days of the conference.  (Subject to change.)

to receive a discount of $100 off their conference registration.


> Ways to Participate

1.) Conference Speaker - Abstracts are appreciated, but not limited to the
following suggested topic areas: Core Technologies, Web Services, Knowledge
Management, Electronic Commerce, EAI/B2Bi, Publishing, Storing XML
(databases and content management), Case Studies, Graphics and Multimedia,
Legal, Financial, ebXML, Wireless, and Government. Submissions for talks on
other XML-related subjects are also welcome. Presentations can be
introductory or advanced, geared to implementers or executives. A paper
marked up using the designated XML schema is REQUIRED.

2.) Tutorial Instructor - We are also seeking highly qualified instructors
to lead tutorials, which will be selected based on merits of the topic and
instructor.  Tutorials will be one-half, full or two-day workshops.  Please
be sure to indicate any special requirements and length of your tutorial on
the submission form. 

Please note: Marketing/promotional presentations will not be considered for
tutorials or conference presentations (exception being the vendor
presentations). The talk must be submitted online in the requested abstract
format and must be original work of professional quality.

3.) Town Hall Facilitator/Panelist - This annual event will host "Town Hall
Meetings" again. Held throughout the conference, these interactive forums
are designed to allow all attendees to join open-mike forums. This is a
great way to ask questions, listen to suggestions, soak up praise, endure
abuse, hold straw polls, or go into more detail on particular issues not
possible during other presentations. These evening sessions are not limited
to conference attendees, but will be open to the public as well.

4.) Vendor/Product Presenters - Precedence will be given to those
submissions that demonstrate products being launched at XML 2002.  Products
to be announced and demonstrated first at XML 2002, brand new technologies,
new versions of existing products, standards-compliance, and/or
interoperability proof (i.e., showing more than one product from different
vendors working together) are all encouraged. Deadline for Vendor
Presentation Submissions is October 1, 2002.

5.) Late Breaking News - We will reserve several speaking spots for
"Late-Breaking News Sessions." These presentations will be designed for
developments so new that normal lead-time is not possible. These sessions
will be awarded at the discretion of the conference chair and planning
committee. Submissions for late-breaking news must sent by October 1, 2002.

6.) Exhibitor and/or Sponsor - The Annual XML event has earned a reputation
for excellence, providing vendors access to perhaps the most well informed
and well-qualified audience on XML. We invite you to join the more than 100
expected exhibiting companies at this year's event.  The conference and
exposition also has several sponsorship opportunities available. More
details on exhibiting and sponsoring may be found on the event web site
www.xmlconference.org (including contracts, floor plans and available

7.) Associated, Affiliated, and Related Meeting Organizer - IDEAlliance
encourages other organizations (especially standards activities groups)
to meet the week before or after XML 2002. We will be happy to assist you
with your planning. If interested, please contact Jane Harnad, IDEAlliance -
More details can be found on the event web site www.xmlconference.org.
