Abstract: The workshop aims at providing a meeting ground for researchers from the XML, programming language, and database communities. XML is already a de-facto industry standard for data exchange, it has from an early stage been embraced by database researchers, and it is gaining increasing interest from programming language researchers.

At this workshop we hope to present recent results, identify new challenges, and inspire the programming language community to focus on XML.

The focus of the workshop is on methods, tools, and theories for processing XML. Example topics include (but are not limited to) XML parsing, XML type system and schemas, analysis and implementation of technologies such as XPath, XSLT, and XQuery, and integration of XML in both general-purpose and domain-specific programming languages.

May 2005.
7 pp. To appear in a volume of the BRICS Notes Series devoted to the workshop ``Algebraic Process Calculi: The First Twenty Five Years and Beyond'', August 1-5, 2005, University of Bologna Residential Center Bertinoro (Forlì), Italy.
Abstract: This essay recounts the story of the quest for equational axiomatizations of parallel composition operators in process description languages, and of similar results in the classic field of formal language theory. Some of the outstanding open problems are also mentioned.

What is Theoretical Computer Science?
April 2005.
13 pp.
Abstract: This article presents a bird's eye view of Theoretical Computer Science aimed at a general scientific audience. It then focuses on a selected area within this general field, and discusses some of the applications of results from that area and of the fundamental theoretical questions that drive its development.
