International Symposium on XML for the Long Haul
Issues in the Long-term Preservation of XML

People who create, store, query, or serve XML expect it to live a 
very long time. XML is platform- and application-independent, and by 
and large it is platforms and applications that vanish. If by 
encoding information in XML we have freed it from dependency on 
specific platforms or applications, have we succeeded in ensuring 
that the XML can live long into the future? Or is there more to it 
than using XML? How can we best ensure that our data, all our data, 
and its semantics survive this year, next year, ten years? into the 
next millennium?

Topics in this one-day symposium will include:

  - Markup of social science data
  - Sustainability of linguistic resources
  - Case studies from PubMed Central and Portico, two very large
        journal article archives
  - Scholarly editions in a digital world
  - Implications of XML semantics for archive standards
  - Metadata for product data
