Subject: OASIS Member News: Real World Topic Maps - An XML UK Seminar

Dear Colleagues
While OASIS has three technical committees dedicated to Topic
Maps-related work, specifically the definition and use of published
subjects, many of you may still be unfamiliar with Topic Maps. If you'd
like to be a lot more conversant on Topic Maps and you are going to be
in the UK on the 5th of November, then join us in Cambridge for a day to
hear more about this new standard for organising knowledge and
information resources. 
This reasonably priced seminar sponsored by XML UK (members GBP
60/non-members GBP 110), is an excellent way to find out more about
Topic Maps and hear case studies from users. 
If you know others who would be interested in getting more information
about Topic Maps, please pass on to them.
We hope to see you there.
