Processing XML Efficiently Program Announced

International Symposium on Processing XML Efficiently:
Overcoming Limits on Space, Time, or Bandwidth

Monday August 10, 2009
Hotel Europa, Montréal, Canada

Chair: Michael Kay, Saxonica
Symposium description:  http://www.balisage.net/Processing/
Detailed Program: http://www.balisage.net/Processing/Program.html
Registration: http://www.balisage.net/registration.html

Developers have said it: "XML is too slow!", 
where "slow" can mean many things including 
elapsed time, throughput, latency, memory use, 
and bandwidth consumption.

The aim of this one-day symposium is to 
understand these problems better and to explore 
and share approaches to solving them. We'll hear 
about attempts to tackle the problem at many 
levels of the processing stack. Some developers 
are addressing the XML parsing bottleneck at the 
hardware level with custom chips or with 
hardware-assisted techniques. Some researchers 
are looking for ways to compress XML efficiently 
without sacrificing the ability to perform 
queries, while others are focusing on the ability 
to perform queries and transformations in 
streaming mode. We'll hear from a group who 
believe the problem (and its solution) lies not 
with the individual component technologies that 
make up an application, but with the integration 
technology that binds the components together.

We'll also hear from someone who has solved the 
problems in real life, demonstrating that it is 
possible to build XML-based applications handling 
very large numbers of documents and a high 
throughput of queries while offering good 
response time to users. And that with today's 
technologies, not tomorrow's.

If you are interested in this symposium we invite you to read about
"Balisage: The Markup Conference", which follows it in the same location:
