We would like to announce a pre-conference day for the XML Prague
conference, to be held on Friday 25th March 2011.

The pre-conference day will cover themes linked to XML Databases and
XQuery, with a relaxed and flexible un-conference like approach at
times. The day will consist of not only talks by subject experts, but
also presentations and discussion topics from attendees.

The morning will focus exclusively on the eXist-db Open Source Native
XML Database, with talks and demos from the developers of eXist-db on
the latest features, performance tuning and best practice, followed by
eXist-db user community presentations*.

The afternoon will cover -
- EXPath (latest developments, extensions, packaging, governance and
the current state of implementations), by Florent Georges.
- XQuery Performance and Portability (open discussion forum), by
Mohamed Zergaoui.
- XQuery 3.0 Upcoming Features, TBC!
- Demos and Discussion* - an un-conference, where anyone may take the
floor to present, demo or discuss a topic or project.

Registration and full pre-conference details are available on our
website here - http://xmlprague2011.preconference.info/

Please note, that the venue is NOT the Charles University. The venue
details may be found on the website above.

There will be no charge for the day, as it is kindly sponsored by
eXist Solutions - http://www.existsolutions.com

* If you would like to give a presentation, demo or host a discussion
either in the morning (eXist-db related), or require a period longer
than 10 minutes in the afternoon 'Demos and Discussion' slot, then
please let us know in advance. Likewise, if you have suggestions for
talks or points of discussion, contact: info at exist-db.org.
