ActiviXML is a dialect of XML that intends to abstract the information flow particularly between large scale social activist communities and individuals in order to reinforce the impact of social activism events.
ActiviXML proposes a standard format, ActiviXML Schema, for the documents that describe a social activism event. This standard format categorizes information and builds information hierarchy.
In collaboration with Engin Erdogan.
