When the regular (peer-reviewed) part of the Balisage 2014 program was
scheduled, a few slots were reserved for presentation of "Late breaking"
material.  These presentations have now been selected and added to the

Topics added include:

-  Streamable functions in XSLT 3.0
-  Teaching XQuery to (non-programmer) humanists
-  Making XML easy to work with (an easier API for XML than SAX or DOM)
-  Extending the relevance of XPath
-  Identity Constraints for XML
-  Teaching NIEM-based models to XML and NIEM novices
-  Enabling XML entity reference while protecting against data theft and
denial-of-service attacks

The program already included talks about  case studies from government, the
standards world, big data, and a web-browser game; change tracking and
versioning in XML documents; XSLT streamability; new approaches to overlapping
data structures; a discussion of MathML technology and practice; and technical
papers covering such topics as: Web Components, XForms for editing, RELAX NG
for DITA, an XQuery framework, OWL, identity in XML and JSON, and RDF and the
Internet of Things. Now it is a real must for anyone who thinks deeply about

Balisage is the XML Geek-fest; the annual gathering of people who design
markup and markup-based applications; who develop XML specifications,
standards, and tools; the people who read and write, books about publishing
technologies in general and XML in particular; and super-users of XML and
related technologies. You can read about the Balisage 2011 conference
