Extreme Markup Languages is the successor conference to all of the
following GCA conferences:
  * Markup Technologies      * XML Developers Conference
  * Metastructures           * International Markup
  * HyTime                   * SGML'XX

Principals of those conferences have now joined forces to offer a
single unabashedly hard-core conference as a gathering place for the
technically-oriented members of the information interchange community;
a place for these people to meet and refresh each other with ideas
advice, and camaraderie.  The conference is agnostic with respect to
commercial and political persuasion.  It is passionate about providing a
forum where technical ideas can be communicated and explained
