[ANN] XML Prague Pre-Conference DayAdam Retter adam.retter at googlemail.com

The morning of the pre-conference is given over to the eXist-db XML Native Database. It is in effect our community meetup, we also had one in Prague last year for a full day on the Friday. This year we were approached by others, and discussed just giving a half-day on eXist-db and expanding the afternoon to more general topics which were applicable to those both inside and outside of eXist-db, but I guess with a focus on things like XQuery and XRX. So the day itself is not XML Database specific or even eXist-db specific. It is true at present that eXist-db is the only database on the program for the day, mostly because of our morning. However if there is interest in giving talks in the afternoon which are applicable to a wide ordinance and use an XML Database other than eXist-db to illustrate the points, then I would imagine that should be fine - as I said in my announcement, if you have topics for discussion or presentation, please contact us on http://x-query.com/mailman/listinfo/talk Hope that clarifies things?
