The Balisage Series on Markup Technologies is an occasional series that includes the
proceedings of conferences, symposia, and other markup-related events.
Held annually in Montréal, Balisage: The Markup Conference is a peer-reviewed
conference designed to meet the needs of markup theoreticians and practitioners who are
pushing the boundaries of the field. Balisage is an XML conference and more. It’s all about
the markup: how to create it; what it means; hierarchies and overlap; modeling; taxonomies;
transformation; query, searching, and retrieval; presentation and accessibility; making
systems that make markup dance (or dance faster to a different tune in a smaller space) – in
short, changing the world and the web through the power of markup.
Balisage is often accompanied by a one-day symposium examining a particularly
difficult issue related to markup: the difficulties arising from revising, extending, or
changing XML vocabularies; the challenges involved in processing XML efficiently; etc. The
symposium’s aim is to bring together theory and practice – researchers, product engineers,
academics, developers, and users – in an attempt to understand the issue and its facets
better, and to explore and share approaches to solving them.
