Versioning is a key topic not just for UBL but for any large-scale XML definition project. Please forward this notice to anyone who might be interested.
International Symposium on Versioning XML Documents and Vocabularies Monday August 11, 2008 Hotel Europa, Montréal, Canada
A one-day discussion of issues relating to revision, variation, and managing change in XML documents and vocabularies. Things change, and sometimes things turn out to be different than we thought they were. (And sometimes we decide to revise them.) As a result: * documents are modified * vocabularies are revised * document collections become heterogeneous
Proposals for presentations at the Versioning Symposium may address any aspect of versioning XML documents and/or vocabularies. We welcome: * Theoretical discussions * Practical experience and case studies * Product talks (if clearly identified as such) * Discussions of: o design to accommodate change o change tracking and management o documents and document versioning o vocabularies and vocabulary versioning o management of document variants + varying requirements such as documentation of changing/multiple products + variations because of historical accident such as transcription errors
