Ari Krupnikov is scheduled to give a talk on DBDOM Friday, July 27 2001 at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention in San Diego, CA. The talk is part of the 'Cutting Edge XML' track and will be the first public presentation of this SourceForge hosted project. More information about the presentation is available at http://conferences.oreillynet.com/cs/os2001/view/e_sess/1877
