David Silverman, Nikita Ogievetsky and Walter Perry invite you to participate in 2010 meeting of New York XML Special Interest Group on Monday, March 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The meeting is hosted by Morgan Stanley at 1585 Broadway, 6th floor.
Michel Biezunski and Steven R. Newcomb, pioneers of the ISO Topic Maps standard, will share their experience applying Topic Map concepts to design and implementation of Tax Map in IRS since 2001.
To reserve a place for this meeting, please send an email request to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org; the space is limited, you will receive a confirmation by return email.
We look forward to a large and enthusiastic group on March 8th.
Introduction to UBL and Code Lists 2007-05-09
Nikita Ogievetsky and Walter Perry invite you to participate in the resurrection of the New York XML Special Interest Group. We will meet Wednesday 9 May from 7 to 9 p.m. at 1 New York Plaza in downtown Manhattan (map directions below). The topics of this meeting will be the Universal Business Language, version 2.0 and the management of code lists (controlled vocabularies). If you have not had a good look at this standard, we urge you to check out that link as well as Jon Bosak's comments from XML2006 and, of course, to attend the SIG meeting on May 9th. The presenters for the May 9th meeting will be Ken Holman and Tony Coates. We are delighted, and grateful, that they have both volunteered their expertise toward what we confidently expect will be the enthusiastic re-start of the New York XML SIG. Bios of both presenters and abstracts of their talks are attached below. We are also grateful to Morgan Stanley for providing space and sponsorship for our group. To reserve a place for this meeting, please send an email request to mailto:email@example.com You will receive a confirmation by return email. We look forward to a large and enthusiastic group on May 9th.

Presentation Topic Map Solutions for Kodak Digital Camera Accessories [html] [pdf] at XML Europe 2003 Conference. 2003-05-05
This presentation shows how we used Topic Map based solutions to build, organize and maintain Kodak digital cameras accessories web site. The chosen approach did not require software investment. Excel, available and familiar spreadsheet software, served as an affordable and easy to use Topic Map GUI editor and repository.
>Excel worksheets represent different plains of relationships that are completely independent until the processing begins. An initial set of topic map documents is generated from applicable worksheets and by spidering a corpus of XML content files. Topic maps are merged based on the topic naming constraint or subject merging rule. Finally, XSLT drives generation of JHTML server pages, SVG and SQL scripts from Topic Map source code (CTW framework). We also show how we used Topic Map Ontology schema to calculate the difference between two Topic Map documents. This is also XSLT-driven. The difference topic map controls which web pages should be updated, which lowers server load and improves performance.
Because the framework is Topic Map based it was very easy to satisfy new requirements and add new planes of relationships.

Presentation Building Dynamic Web Sites with Topic Maps and XSLT at Extreme Markup Languages 2000 Conference. 2000-08-17
This presentation describes Cogitech's Cogitative Web Sites (CTW) content publishing framework that uses Topic Maps and XSLT. It shows how one can easily integrate two different CTW Web Sites by simply merging their source Topic Maps. Source Topic Map aggregates content from the universe of WWW resources, and, at the same time, dynamically governs website navigation and site map.
Semantic Web Glasses
This presentation describes new approach that result in a more compact Topic Maps representation. Quantum Topic Maps leverage DAML-OIL to enrich Topic Maps expressiveness. In addition, one can use freely available DAML-OIL validators to validate Topic Maps expressed in QTM format. Presentation describes "Quantum" effects in Topic Maps and outlines Quantum Topic Maps Processing Model derived from TMPM4.

Presentation XML Topic Maps through RDF Glasses at Extreme Markup Languages 2001 Conference. 2001-08-15
This presentation describes XTM to RDF translator (XTM2RDF), which is now available online. It uses XSLT to translate topic map documents expressed in the XTM syntax into RDF. The translation process respects the TMPM4 parsing model for XTM. XTM2RDF supports inner and external traversals in RDF and XTM documents. XTM2RDF Translator XTM-enable RDF applications; on the other end, topic maps community can use RDF graph visualizers to view topic map graphs.
Presentation discusses principals and techniques for harvesting XML Topic Maps.
In particular XSLT transformation from PRISM into XTM is considered.
