Reminder: Symposium on Cultural Heritage Markup CFP

Cultural Heritage Markup:
Using Markup to preserve, understand, and disseminate cultural heritage materials: a Balisage pre-conference symposium

Monday August 10, 2015
Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, Bethesda, MD, USA

Markup and markup technologies are used in a wide variety of cultural heritage projects by linguists, students of literature, librarians, historians, curators, and others. Markup is used behind the scenes in archives, libraries, and museums to create and store metadata and the textual content of a wide variety of materials both textual and artefactual. We want to know how you or your project are using markup to preserve, analyse, disseminate, or curate materials of long-term value to society.

HTML5 and XML: Mending Fences

A Balisage pre-conference symposium (Monday August 4, 2014)

HTML5 is taking over the Web. XML and XML-based toolsets are used to create, manage, interchange, and manipulate much of the content that is published as HTML5. XMLers and HTML5ers may each find the other more than a little peculiar; but it is time to get past our differences and discuss how our differing strengths can be combined to benefit each other, our users, and the information eco-system as a whole.

Each year, Balisage gathers together an eclectic mix of participants interested in markup, and puts them together in one of the world’s great cities for three and half days of discussion about points of interest in the use of descriptive markup to build strong, lasting information systems. Practitioners and theorists, vendors and users, tool-users and tool-makers, all provide their perspectives at Balisage.

Nominations for paper proposals and peer reviewers and are solicited.

As always, papers at Balisage can address any aspect of the use of markup and markup languages to represent information and build information systems. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • XML and related technologies
  • Non-XML markup languages
  • Implementation experience with XML parsing, XSLT processors, XQuery processors, XProc implementations, Topic Map engines, or any markup-related technology
  • Case studies of markup design and deployment
  • Recent and upcoming milestones in standards development
  • Semantics of markup languages
  • JSON and XML
  • the future of XML (if any)
  • the future of descriptive markup (if any)

Balisage is a peer-reviewed conference. Our electronic proceedings are freely available as part of the Balisage Series on Markup Technologies.
