Events Online

Stephen Emmott, LSE gave a plenary talk on “Events Online” at the IWMW 1998 event.


Descriptions of events, as with the events they describe, vary considerably. From a 30 minute talk to a 3 day workshop, the information that needs to be published rarely fits ‘the institutional form’. This talk presents an events database that uses server-side XML to let the content publish itself. Events submitted via either a form or free text are served to the browser in the College house-style – allowing the institution to carry the publishing workload rather than the individual or their department.
