markup conference is the principal technical meeting
specifically about markup, including XML, TEX,
Markdown, and many others. Given the success of the
all-virtual meeting last year,
the 2021 meeting will be all
virtual: all sessions, conversations,
social events, and other conference-related
activities will be online. The conference will take
place 2–6 August.

Balisage 2021 will be all
All paper presentations, discussions, question
and answer sessions, and social events will be live;
there will be no recorded or canned content at
Balisage 2021. Similarly, we will not save
recordings of the conference events. The permanent
record of Balisage 2021 will be in the conference
Following the very successful online meeting in
2020, the TEX Users Group
2021 meeting will also be held online, on 6–8
XML Summerschool 2021
The annual XML
Summer School is still
scheduled to be held in St Edmund Hall, Oxford on 12–17
September 2021 but in a smaller format than in previous years: the Primer,
Hands-on Introduction, XML in Health Care, and selected
Master Classes. Hopefully 2022 will see a return to normal.
Declarative Amsterdam 3
The third Declarative
Amsterdam conference will take place at CWI
(Science Park, Amsterdam) on 4–5 November 2021.
The conference focuses on the technologies and methods used for declarative programming and declarative data.
We anticipate by November that we will be able to hold the conference face-to-face, but either way, we are planning to broadcast live as well.
The first day will feature tutorials, combining presentations and hands-on sessions to give an introduction to specific topics.
The second day is a symposium, and will consist of shorter presentations. Speakers can discuss new ideas, frameworks, applications of declarative methods, and best practices.
XML Prague 2021
Because of the COVID–19 situation and
restrictions related to it, XML Prague
2021 has been cancelled. We hope that we
will all gather together in 2022. Meanwhile you can
from past years.
