"XML" - It's a simple term, but behind it lies a lot of complexity. When you need
help in getting the maximum value from XML technologies, where do you look? How do
you know you are getting the most competent help available?

The XML Guild is proud to be a co-sponsor of Balisage 2013 — The Markup Conference.
Balisage is a peer-reviewed
annual English-language conference about the theory
and practice of information management and
interchange, especially in light of the central ideas
of the XML family of markup languages. The Balisage
conference is about the leading edge of the field; it
appeals most strongly to those whose problems and/or
solutions are near or beyond the state of the art. If
the XML family of technologies is your passion and/or
burden, or you need to gather information about the
state of the art, or you want to move the state of the
art forward, or both, you should consider
participating. Many experts find it worthwhile to
invest their time and effort, year after year, in
Balisage 2013 runs 6-9 August in Montréal, Canada.
The conference is in English, despite its Francophone
name and venue ("Balisage" means "markup" in French).
(In case you don't know: quite apart from Balisage,
Montréal in August is a feast for the body, mind, and
spirit. Consider staying for an extra day or two so
you can enjoy it.)
Also, don't miss the pre-conference
Symposium on Native XML User Interfaces" on
5 August 2013 in the same hotel.
We hope to see you there!
