International Symposium on Versioning XML Vocabularies and Systems
August 11, 2008
The International Symposium on Versioning XML Vocabularies and Systems was a one-day discussion of issues relating to revision, extension, variation, and change management of XML vocabularies: backwards compatibility for current users, forward compatibility, versioning core vocabularies extended by others, and schema language choice. Papers presented at the Versioning Symposium explored the overall versioning problem by providing a review of conceptual models and terminology, and examined live cases, including the user-driven revision of a tag set for journal articles, and the problem of managing version changes across multiple vocabularies and numerous user groups in a large organization.
