It's time to make your summer plans to visit Montréal to participate in a great conference, mingle with great people, and just generally have a great time. If you're at all markup-inclined, it's the place to be.
Delightfully, the Call for Participation is already out. So is the announcement for the pre-conference symposium: Processing XML Efficiently: Overcoming Limits on Space, Time, or Bandwidth. Chaired by Michael Kay, that's going to be excellent.
And, seriously, it's not too early to start making your plans. Balisage is a peer reviewed conference, you need to get full papers in by April. (Yeah, I know, that sounds like ages from now, but you know how time flies…)
See you there!
Full disclosure: I'm now credited as “an advisor” to the esteemed chairs.
