[ANN] Balisage 2018 Program Announced

Tommie Usdin
Balisage: The Markup Conference
2018 Program Now Available
http://www.balisage.net/2018/Program.html

Balisage: where serious markup practitioners and theoreticians meet
every summer.

The 2018 program includes papers that reflect and look forward, and
that discuss the use of markup to: manage documentation, visualize
large XML datasets, explore dominant and recessive heirarchies
(overlap!), examine the balance between declarative and imperative
forms, gather, collate, and analyze large volumes of web data,
consider the precise nature of relationships, discuss making data
comprehensible with style guides, explore the role of metaphor in our
understanding of technology, teach us to think of documents as
hypergraphs, imagine new forms of stand-off markup, consider the
importance of understanding what we are trying to build, make hard
things easier, push our favorite technologies into new places both
familiar and unexpected, scale up, and scale out.


Are you interested in open information, reusable documents, and vendor
and application independence? Then you need descriptive markup, and
Balisage is your conference. Balisage brings together document
architects, librarians, archivists, computer scientists, XML
practitioners, XSLT and XQuery programmers, implementers of XSLT and
XQuery engines and other markup-related software, semantic-Web
evangelists, standards developers, academics, industrial researchers,
government and NGO staff, industrial developers, practitioners,
consultants, and the world's greatest concentration of markup
theorists.

Discussion at Balisage is open, candid, and unashamedly technical.
