XML UK are holding an event next month called "Publishing 2.0". (See also the Upcoming.org entry)
This one day conference lines-up a number of acknowledged experts drawn from the publishing and XML standards worlds, and will focus on how some publishers are deriving benefits from innovation, as well as what up-coming technologies and standards are likely to be making an impact in the near future.
I'm going to be giving a talk on RDF; how we're using it to model academic publications; and why we think its going to deliver advantages. The full line-up is pretty impressive, and includes a keynote from Sean McGrath who is an excellent speaker.
I'm very pleased to have been invited to speak at the event. And as an un-reformed geek how could I turn down the opportunity to speak at Bletchley Park?!
