The annual World Wide Web Conference is being held next week in Banff, Canada. It's about an hour's flight from Victoria, where I live, so of course I'm going!
I served on the program committee of the XML Web Data track this year. Competition to get into the conference is quite stiff, so recommending a paper for acceptance is a low probability event. Of the nine papers I reviewed, most were really good, and a couple that I had hoped would make it to the program will indeed appear. I am pleased to be chairing a session on Thursday May 10 that includes one such paper (I did not receive the other two for review).
I will also be presenting in the W3C Track on Friday at 1:30 as part of an Architectural Integration session organized and chaired by Steven Pemberton. I will be presenting on The W3C Rich Web Application Backplane, a forward-looking view of the possibilities for integration and composition of web applications leveraging W3C formats and APIs.
Finally, I'll be presenting in the Dev Track on Saturday at 1:30. My talk will demonstrate a schema-initiated drag-and-drop design experience for XForms using the Lotus Forms Designer.
Hope to see you there!
