SGML and XML are markup languages for presenting information as structured
documents, see e.g. Airi Salminen, Summary of the XML Family of W3C
Languages [1], and The XML Cover Pages [2]. SGML/XML are sometimes also
called enabling technologies. To cite Oxford English Dictionary:

        Enable, v. To supply with the requisite means or opportunities to
        an end or for an object

Markup languages do not, by themselves, give off-the-shelf answers to
questions related to, say, electronic publishing or how to find
information. They provide an opportunity. An opportunity to take a look at
the information from a more abstract level. Not as pages or lines, but as
packets with a label. When information is "tagged", it means you have
classified its distinct logical elements. It is like turning your
information into a miniature library, searchable, retrievable, usable.

RAJU2001 is a 1-day event with two themes: SGML/XML editing, and metadata.
Both themes are highlighted from two perspectives: practical case studies,
and research findings. RAJU2001 gratefully acknowledges the contribution
of all invited speakers, representing rich expertise in their respective

RAJU2001 is organised jointly by Oulu University Library, SGML Users'
Group of Finland, and do-re-mi research group/TYTTI project at University
of Helsinki.

The language of the seminar is English.

About RAJU

RAJU dates back to 1998 when four university units established a joint
12-month project organization to promote the idea of structured publishing
(ie RAkenteinen JUlkaiseminen in Finnish). The Units were Digital Media at
the University of Jyväskylä, Oulu University Library, Vaasa University
Library, and Helsinki University of Technology Library. After three
seminars, one publication, and a discussion list, RAJU is no more a
project - it is a brand :)! Seriously, from time to time, RAJU will pop
up as a name of occasional events that deal with electronic publishing
issues in Finnish university settings.
