Balisage is where people interested in descriptive markup meet each year in
August for informed technical discussion, occasionally impassioned debate,
good coffee, and the incomparable ambience of one of North America's greatest
cities, Montreal. We welcome anyone interested in discussing the use of
descriptive markup to build strong, lasting information systems.

Practitioner or theorist, tool-builder or tool-user, student or lecturer --
you are invited to submit a paper proposal for Balisage 2013. As always,
papers at Balisage can address any aspect of the use of markup and markup
languages to represent information and build information systems. Possible
topics include but are not limited to:

  * XML and related technologies
  * Non-XML markup languages
  * Big Data and XML
  * Implementation experience with XML parsing, XSLT processors, XQuery
    XML databases, XProc integrations, or any markup-related technology
  * Semantics, overlap, and other complex fundamental issues for markup
  * Case studies of markup design and deployment
  * Quality of information in markup systems
  * JSON and XML
  * Efficiency of Markup Software
  * Markup systems in and for the mobile web
  * The future of XML and of descriptive markup in general
  * Interesting applications of markup

In addition, please consider becoming a Peer Reviewer. Reviewers play a
critical role towards the success of Balisage. They review blind submissions
-- on topics that interest them -- for technical merit, interest, and
applicability.  Your comments and recommendations can assist the Conference
Committee in creating the program for Balisage 2013!
