There's lots of great stuff this year at Extreme Markup Languages, but
readers of this list may be *especially* interested in the following
Topic Maps-related presentations and activities at Extreme
(www.extrememarkup.com, 1-5 August, Montr=E9al) this year:
- "Building topic maps in OWL-DL", by Anne Cregan of National
Information and Communications Technology Australia (NICTA) Centre
of Excellence. See the full description of her talk at:
- "The Q Model: Using quads to unify RDF and Topic Maps", by Lars
Marius Garshol of Ontopia. Full description at:
- "A matter of perspectives: Talking about talking about topic maps",
by Michel Biezunski, Infoloom
- "Multiple Subject Map Disclosures for Relationships and TMDM
Information Items", by Steven R. Newcomb of Coolheads Consulting
and Patrick Durusau, Independent Consultant.
- "TMIP, a RESTful Topic Maps Interaction Protocol", by Robert Barta,
- "Constraining topic maps: A TMCL declarative implementation", by
Jos=E9 Carlos Ramalho, Giovani Librelotto, and Pedro Rangel
Henriques, all of the University of Minho.
- In addition, there will be at least one Topic Maps-related evening
session (aka a "Nocturne"). (I know this only because I'm planning
to lead it myself.) It will be for those interested in getting an
introduction to the Versavant multi-TMA subject proxy engine
The above items are all directly related to Topic Maps. The below
items are not specifically about Topic Maps, but I think will
nonetheless be of special interest to much of the Topic Maps
- "Processing references to documents you don't have access to:
Constructing identifiers with Relax NG and XSLT", by Matthijs
Breebaart of the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration.
- "Semantics of well-formed XML as a human and machine readable language", =
Ann Wrightson of CSW Group.
- "Network-Oriented Document Abstraction Language: Structure and
reference for the rest of the Web", by Lee Iverson of the
University of British Columbia.
- "Extreme Feedback: The Future of XML", a discussion led by Liam Quin
of the World Wide Web Consortium. A chance to suggest areas in
which the W3C should be operating.
But there's much, much more on the program. Check it out at
