                Programming Language Technologies for XML

            An ACM SIGPLAN Workshop collocated with POPL 2007

                     Nice, France -- January 20, 2007


Please join us for PLAN-X 2007, the fifth workshop in the PLAN-X series,
dedicated to the interaction and integration of programming language
technology and the world of XML.

The XML data model and its associated languages add interesting twists
to programming language practice as well as theory. Just like its four
predecessors, the PLAN-X 2007 workshop turns the spotlight on how
programming language technology can embrace and explain streaming XML
transformations, types for XPath and XML updates, web service contracts,
tree patterns in XQuery, LINQ and XML Schema, and more. PLAN-X 2007 will
feature eight talks, three system demonstrations, extensive opportunity
for discussion, and a keynote address (speaker to be announced).

PLAN-X 2007 will be held in the Plaza Hotel (Nice, France) all-day on
Saturday, January 20, 2007, just after and collocated with POPL 2007,
the ACM SIGPLAN - SIGACT Symposium on Principles of Programming
Languages (January 17-19, 2007).
