Balisage Program adds Late-breaking News

When the regular (peer-reviewed) part of the Balisage 2015 program was scheduled, a few slots were reserved for presentation of “Late breaking” material.  These presentations have now been selected and added to the program:
– Tomos Hillman on “XSLT Pipelines in XSLT”
– David A. Lee on “Multi Markup Language – When one markup language
just isn’t enough”
– Chris Maloney, Alf Eaton, & Jeff Beck on “A client-side JATS4R validator using Saxon-CE”
– David RR Webber on “The Semantics of self-assembling user apps”
– Joseph Wicentowski & Wolfgang Meier on “Publishing TEI documents
with TEI Simple: a case study at the U.S. Department of
State’s Office of the Historian”

The program already included case studies from journal publishing, regulatory compliance systems, and large-scale document systems; formatting XML for print and browser-based print formatting; visualizing XML structures and documents. Technical papers cover such topics as: MathML; XSLT; use of XML in government and the humanities; XQuery; design of authoring systems; uses of markup that vary from poetry to spreadsheets to cyber justice; and hyperdocument link management. The conference will be preceded by a one-day symposium on Cultural Heritage Markup.

Balisage is the XML Geek-fest; the annual gathering of people who design markup and markup-based applications; who develop XML specifications, standards, and tools; the people who read and write, books about publishing technologies in general and XML in particular; and super-users of XML and related technologies.
