Balisage is an annual peer-reiewed conference devoted to the theory and
practice of descriptive markup and related technologies for structuring
and managing information.
This year’s program includes: case studies from government, the standards
world, big data, and a web-browser game; change tracking and versioning in XML
documents; XSLT streamability; new approaches to overlapping data structures;
a discussion of MathML technology and practice; and technical papers covering
such topics as: Web Components, XForms for editing, RELAX NG for DITA, an
XQuery framework, OWL, identity in XML and JSON, and RDF and the Internet of Things.
Balisage participants typically include XML users; XSLT and XQuery programmers;
librarians; developers of XML databases, XSLT and XQuery engines, web publishing
applications, and markup-related software; semantic-Web evangelists,
archivists; members of the working groups which define markup specifications;
academics; industrial researchers, representatives of governmental bodies
and NGOs; consultants; and the world’s greatest concentration of markup theorists.
Discussion is open, candid, and unashamedly technical.
