XMLUK, the XML forum for XML users and developers, is pleased to announce its latest conference "XML IN THE NEWS: how XML is being implemented in newspapers and related media". 

XML and related technologies are underpinning significant changes in the business of news and media. All organisations in the sector are being affected. We are therefore very excited to be able to bring together a world-class panel of speakers to introduce key news-specific XML standards (NewsML, AdsML, XPRL) and address the related technical and business issues. Speakers include:

*Allan Marshall* - Managing Director of Associated Mediabase and long-time XML advocate, responsible for the development and integration of Associated Newspapers' (Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Evening Standard, Metro, Ireland on Sunday, Loot) expansion into electronic information delivery.

*David Jones* - previously IT Director at the Financial Times and CIO at the Trinity Mirror Group and currently CTO at Vio Worldwide.

*Ian Davies* - Business Development Director of the Archant Group, one of Britain's most vibrant and respected regional newspaper groups that is putting the principles of convergence into practice today.

*David Cole* - previously responsible for IT development at the San Francisco Examiner and currently publisher of the influential and respected newsletters The Cole Papers (on technology, journalism and publishing), and NewsInc. (on the business of the newspaper business).

*David Allen* was the Managing Director of the IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council) from 1991 until
his retirement at the beginning of 2003 during which he has been closely involved with all the standards work of the IPTC including overseeing the development of the NewsML standard.

*Alison Clark* - Chair of XPRL.org, developers of the eXtensible Public Relations Language, and a strategic public relations consultant working at Transport for London and previously Managing Director of Shandwick Public Affairs Ltd and Head of Corporate Communications at Wessex Water Plc.

*Tony Stewart* - Director of Consulting at RivCom, the team that was commissioned to support the development of both NewsML (the standard for the management and dissemination of electronic news) and AdsML (the standard for end-to-end advertising workflow).

This is an ideal opportunity to find out how XML is being implemented in newspapers and related media and to consider the related strategic and business issues.

* Those in the newspaper, PR, advertising and related industries who are interested in the technical and business implications of XML. 
* Publishers in other sectors who are interested in the current and potential uses of XML in a related industry. 
* Developers of software systems for these verticals.
