      a friendly, technically challenging, intensive, thought-provoking,
      argumentative, welcoming, obstreperous conference on markup,
      managing information, and information structures


      CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
      EXTREME MARKUP LANGUAGES 2007(r)
      (a registered trademark of IDEAlliance)

      THE MARKUP THEORY & PRACTICE CONFERENCE


      Extreme is the leading international conference on markup theory and practice.
      If you have interesting markup applications, difficult markup problems, or
      intriguing solutions to problems related to the design and use of markup,
      markup languages, or markup tools; if you want to know what the leading
      theorists of markup are thinking; if you are the house markup expert and
      want to spend time with your kind, then you should plan on attending
      Extreme Markup Languages(r) 2007.


      ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

      Extreme is an open marketplace of theories about markup and all the
      things that they support or that support them: the difficult cases in
      publishing, linguistics, transformation, searching, indexing, and storage
      and retrieval. At Extreme, markup enthusiasts gather each year to trade
      in ideas, not to convince management to buy new stuff. At Extreme we push
      the edges of markup theory & practice.

      WHEN: August 7-10, 2007
      WHERE: Montréal, Canada
      HOST: IDEAlliance
