 Baltimore, MD, January 31, 2017 - On April 24, 2017, the National
Information Standards Organization (NISO) will host "*XML for Standards
Publishers: A NISO Connections Live Event*
This free symposium will be held at the Library of Congress and RSVPs are
welcome <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XQ578HS>. The event, sponsored by
NISO members The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), ASTM,
IEEE, Inera, and Mulberry Technologies, and by Edaptive Technologies,
FEDLINK, Innodata, Typefi, and XSB, is related to NISO's ongoing efforts to
help standards publishers improve their production processes, improve
end-user services, and apply NISO's development of Standard Tag Set

*XML for Standards Publishers* will demonstrate how XML solves issues
associated with the use of PDFs, which lack the flexibility needed to meet
current and future market demands. XML can help to improve publishing
processes and bring business value to organizations.

"When an organization faces a daunting technological switch, it's vital to
confer with others facing the same challenges and to hear from experts who
have in-depth knowledge of the new technology," says NISO Executive
Director Todd Carpenter. "NISO Connections Live events offer just that
chance. Standards publishers who want to use XML in their workflow will
benefit enormously from this event. It will help them not only to avoid
reinventing the wheel, but to learn the benefits of using standards to
enhance productivity."

Attendees at this symposium will learn how XML can:

-Facilitate interoperability between standards organizations
-Aid content reuse for additional products and revenue
-Reduce costs to publish with standards-based publishing systems
-Create multiple publication formats for different devices
-Support accessible publications for the visually impaired
