XIME-P 2006: Call for Participation and Demonstrations

Call for Participation and Demonstrations

X I M E - P 2 0 0 6
3rd International Workshop on
XQuery Implementation, Experience and Perspectives

June 30, 2006
Collocated with ACM SIGMOD/PODS 2006, Chicago, USA
Sponsored by ACM SIGMOD

Industrial Sponsors

Please join us for XIME-P 2006, the third workshop in the XIME-P series,
dedicated to research and industrial efforts on the implementation,
utilization, and overall prospects of XQuery.

XQuery development is happening on the verge of databases, document
processing, and programming languages. This ''heterogeneity'' in
contributions and attendees has been a source of lively debate and an
interesting technical program for previous XIME-P editions. In this
spirit, XIME-P 2006 features a mixture of seven talks, discussions,
demoing, and a concluding panel. A keynote address by Don Chamberlin
(IBM Almaden) - a lead of the W3C XQuery Working Group - will open the

Last but not least, all odds are that after 8 years of work XQuery
will become a standard at around the time of SIGMOD 2006, making 2006 a
landmark year for XQuery as well as XIME-P.

XIME-P 2006 is held in the Renaissance Chicago Hotel, i.e., the SIGMOD
2006 conference hotel, all-day on Friday, June 30, 2006.
-- ''Caffeine and Code'': Informal Call for Demonstrations

The venue will be stuffed with interested peers.

The ''Caffeine and Code'' joint coffee and demonstration break
(90 min) of XIME-P 2006 calls for your system to be demoed. This will
