PPML and PPML/VDX working groups plan November 2003 meetings in San Francisco and Toronto

OCTOBER 21, 2003 — Two technical working groups that are important to the variable-data-publishing community will hold meetings next month. The PODi PPML working group will meet in San Francisco November 4-7, and the CGATS PPML/VDX working group will meet in Toronto November 17-18.

The PODi group's four-day meeting in San Francisco will focus on high-volumemail workflow, PPML templating, strategies for advancing PPML, and continued refinement of the PPML specification. All PODi member companies may send a technical and marketing representative to the PPML working-group meeting. For more information, contact Tracy Burkovich at To obtain information on PODi membership benefits, or to find out how to become a PODi member, please visit

At its two-day Toronto meeting, the CGATS group will analyze and discuss color-characterization data that have been gathered during the course of various tests that were performed with a collection of specific devices and media types, and the group will also continue its work on the PPML/VDX Application Notes, which is a document that contains case studies, PPML/VDX code samples, and other information that PPML/VDX developers should find useful. If you'd like to find out how to become a member of this group, or if you're just curious about it, visit
