Call for Tutorials
In continuity to Jack Park's inspiring keynote at TMRA 2005, we invited Steve Newcomb and Steve Pepper as keynote speakers for TMRA 2006. Steve Newcomb will talk in his opening keynote about "Flat Mapping for a Flat World" and Steve Pepper will disclose in his closing keynote the forthcoming challenge of the Topic Maps community: "Crossing the Chasm".

Steve Newcomb
Flat Mapping for a Flat World
Abstract: As a matter of survival, people need to be aware of the implications of perspectives that they do not themselves have. Globalization requires ordinary people, everywhere, to adapt to multiple perspectives simultaneously, even when they conflict with one another. We are not just running faster in order to stay in one place, we are running to stay where we are in more and more places, all at the same time. Globalization demands topic mapping for many reasons, but perhaps most compellingly because no other approach can show us where we are in multiple independent universes simultaneously.

Steve Pepper
Crossing the Chasm (cancelled)
Abstract: In order to become mainstream, any new technology has to cross the chasm that separates the visionaries (the "early adopters") from the pragmatists (the "early majority"). As the revised version of the Topic Maps standard is about to hit the streets, this presentation looks at where we are today and what needs to be done to make Topic Maps a mass phenomenon.
