Presentation Open Access
This is a presentation of the current state and possible future of Schematron and the ISO Standard for Schematron presented by some of the most active members of the Schematron community, including Andrew Sales, editor of the ISO Standard.
Schematron is at a crossroads: ISO Schematron 2020 has gone behind a paywall after previous versions were free, plus ISO has no current plans to further update the Schematron standard, yet Schematron is widely used while at the same time there is a growing list of aspects of Schematron that could be clarified or enhanced in a future version of the standard. The next opportunity to influence ISO to restart the Schematron work is fast approaching. This session will look at how we got here and what are the possible next steps.
