Subject: Industry Leaders to Address Shifting XML Terrain in Keynotes at IDEAlliance's Annual Conference; XML 2005 Chair Recognizes Key Role of Sponsors, Co-Hosts & Exhibitors

Five industry leaders will present keynotes at XML 2005 on topics such as semantic web deployment, next-generation web services, present and future infrastructure, data management, and how XML is changing our lives at work and home. IDEAlliance, the producers of XML 2005, have also released a current list of corporate sponsors and co-hosts for the event, November 14-18 in Atlanta, Ga., USA.

Keynotes kick off XML 2005 on Tuesday and Wednesday, and close the conference on Thursday. Confirmed speakers and their topics include:

-- Jim Hendler, University of Maryland professor, explaining what the semantic web is all about and dispelling myths regarding its relationship with XML.

-- Steven G. Harris, vice president of Oracle's Java Platform Group, showing how XML and web services play a pivotal role in the modern application blueprint.

-- David Campbell, Microsoft SQL Server general manager for data engine and access technologies, exploring where the current XML infrastructure stands and where it is heading.

-- Robert Picciano, vice president of data management for IBM Corporation, presenting his vision on XML's critical role in database management.

-- David Megginson, principal of Megginson Technologies, discussing XML-based technologies such as blog syndication and recomposable web sites and attempting to answer the question, "Does XML matter"?

The keynote presentations are the cornerstones of a program that includes nearly two-dozen tutorials and 120 technical sessions. The current program schedule, with session descriptions, is available at www.xmlconference.org/.

Seven corporate sponsors have signed up to support XML 2005. Diamond-level sponsors to date are Justsystem Corporation, RenderX and Sun Microsystems. Gold sponsors are Blast Radius, Design Science, IBM and Microsoft. Standards organizations that are co-hosting the event include Health Level 7, Liberty Alliance Project, NISO, OASIS, RosettaNet, W3C, WS-I, and XML.gov. Sponsorships and exhibit opportunities are still available; for more information visit: http://2005.xmlconference.org/exhibits.

"This year's event is showing how XML is becoming more and more integral to the corporate IT landscape, as well as affecting people's everyday lives," says Lauren Wood, senior technical program manager at Sun Microsystems and XML 2005 Conference chair. "Many of the newest web technologies are built on XML and would not be possible without it."
