    Five industry leaders will present keynotes at XML 2005 on topics such
    as semantic web deployment, next-generation web services, present and
    future infrastructure, data management, and how XML is changing our
    lives at work and home. IDEAlliance, the producers of XML 2005, have
    also released a current list of corporate sponsors and co-hosts for the
    event, November 14-18 in Atlanta, Ga., USA.


    Keynotes kick off XML 2005 on Tuesday and Wednesday, and close the
    conference on Thursday. Confirmed speakers and their topics include:

    -- Jim Hendler, University of Maryland professor, explaining what the
    semantic web is all about and dispelling myths regarding its
    relationship with XML.

    -- Steven G. Harris, vice president of Oracle's Java Platform Group,
    showing how XML and web services play a pivotal role in the modern
    application blueprint.

    -- David Campbell, Microsoft SQL Server general manager for data engine
    and access technologies, exploring where the current XML infrastructure
    stands and where it is heading.

    -- Robert Picciano, vice president of data management for IBM
    Corporation, presenting his vision on XML's critical role in database
    management.

    -- David Megginson, principal of Megginson Technologies, discussing
    XML-based technologies such as blog syndication and recomposable web
    sites and attempting to answer the question, "Does XML matter"?

    The keynote presentations are the cornerstones of a program that
    includes nearly two-dozen tutorials and 120 technical sessions. The
    current program schedule, with session descriptions, is available at
    www.xmlconference.org/.

    Seven corporate sponsors have signed up to support XML 2005.
    Diamond-level sponsors to date are Justsystem Corporation, RenderX and
    Sun Microsystems. Gold sponsors are Blast Radius, Design Science, IBM
    and Microsoft. Standards organizations that are co-hosting the event
    include Health Level 7, Liberty Alliance Project, NISO, OASIS,
    RosettaNet, W3C, WS-I, and XML.gov. Sponsorships and exhibit
    opportunities are still available; for more information visit:

    "This year's event is showing how XML is becoming more and more
    integral to the corporate IT landscape, as well as affecting people's
    everyday lives," says Lauren Wood, senior technical program manager at
    Sun Microsystems and XML 2005 Conference chair. "Many of the newest web
    technologies are built on XML and would not be possible without it."
