Programming Language Technologies for XML
A workshop colocated with
Aims and Scope
The workshop aims at providing a meeting ground for researchers
from the XML, programming language, and database communities. XML is already
a de-facto industry standard for data exchange, it has from an early
stage been embraced by database researchers, and it is gaining increasing
interest from programming language researchers.
At this workshop we hope
to present recent results, identify new challenges, and inspire the
programming language community to focus on XML.
The focus of the workshop is on methods, tools, and theories for
processing XML. Example topics
include (but are not limited to) XML parsing, XML type system and schemas,
analysis and implementation of technologies such as XPath, XSLT, and XQuery,
and integration of XML in both general-purpose and domain-specific
There will be no formal proceedings. Informal proceedings will be
distributed at the workshop. Thus, accepted material may be published
elsewhere at a later date.
