"There's nothing as practical as a good theory."    (02)

Every year for 15 years, now, I've been chairing or
co-chairing peer-reviewed conferences on the theory and
practice of information interchange, management, and
publishing, with heavy emphasis on markup (XML).    (03)

There's no exhibit floor.  Instead, there are open bulletin
boards, impromptu evening sessions, and plenty of lively
interactions.  It's always challenging and useful, and it's
always a LOT of fun.  It's a small (~120) conference, but
it's terrific for planting ideas and influencing thought.    (04)

This year, because we have declared ourselves independent of
our former sponsor (IDEAlliance, a publishing industry
organization), the conference is newly named "Balisage", but
it's in the same hotel in Montreal, at the same time in
August, under the same leadership, with the same policies,
and participants from the IT and publishing industries,
NGOs, academia and government.  (Proceedings of the
2001-2007 conferences:

Paper proposals are due on April 18.  Proposals for
"late-breaking" papers will have a later deadline, but the
competition for late-breaking slots is always quite stiff,
so if you really want to be on the program, try *hard* to
submit by April 18.    (06)

As usual, there will be a one-day prequel symposium on an
evergreen topic at the same venue on August 11.  This year's
symposium is "Versioning XML Documents and Vocabularies".
Presentation proposals are due March 28.    (07)
