Subject: [cgmopen-members] Fwd: RE: assignments

CGM Open members,

This is a reminder for submitting papers (Abstracts) for XML 2002 Baltimore.  At Frankfurt, Dave captured the following...

XML 2002 - Baltimore
    Contribute to tutorial - (Dave, Rene - maybe, Lofton, Ulrich, Don, Dieter - maybe, Franck - ?)
    Submit presentation - (Dave, Rene - maybe, Andrew, Dieter, Kevin - maybe, Harry - maybe)
    Possible panel - all maybe's - (Don, Forrest, Kevin, Harry)
    Lofton to coordinate tutorial
    Lofton to push for submissions

It is the 2nd line, "Submit Presentation", that is due this Friday. 

Apparently we have commitments from:

Dave, Andrew, Dieter

and "maybe" from:

Rene, Kevin, Harry.

Please consider upgrading your "maybe" to "commit".  We especially need good papers from users, on case studies for WebCGM, rationale for using it, business case, etc.

Remember, all that you have to submit by Friday is the Abstract.  The paper itself is due in mid-September.  See the Call for Participation, attached below, for details of how to submit your Abstract directly to the XML 2002 web site.

This Year's Theme:  Putting the Pieces Together

Today, XML is being used to solve real business needs. More and more
businesses are beginning to use XML to get all their technology working
together. Government agencies are also starting to set up their large-scale
infrastructure using XML.  Like many other robust, real solutions to
complicated problems, XML is not a magic bullet. There are many pieces to
the puzzle and manyissues involving interoperability, integration, and
implementation. The XML 2002 conference will help people find answers to
their needs.

The goal of XML 2002 is to help attendees put the pieces of the XML puzzle
together and teach them best practices. This includes finding out the latest
technology and techniques, learning from past mistakes, and benefiting from
the successes that others have had.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. We are looking for top-quality tutorials and
presentations that will help attendees find out how XML can solve THEIR
problems. Attendees want to hear this information from YOU - the expert. 

Whether as a speaker, tutorial presenter, exhibitor, and/or sponsor, you
will find that XML 2002 is the best forum to share your knowledge and
demonstrate your products and services.  Nowhere else will you find such
high-quality attendees.

> Preliminary Event Schedule
The event is currently scheduled to have two days of tutorials followed by
four days of conference sessions. The vendor exhibition is scheduled to run
during the first three days of the conference.  (Subject to change.)

> Ways to Participate

1.) Conference Speaker - Abstracts are appreciated in, but not limited to
the following suggested topic areas: Core Technologies, Web Services,
Knowledge Management, Electronic Commerce, EAI/B2Bi, Publishing, Storing XML
(databases and content management), Case Studies, Graphics and Multimedia,
Legal, Financial, ebXML, Wireless, and Government. Submissions for talks on
other XML-related subjects are also welcome. Presentations can be
introductory or advanced, geared to implementers or executives. A paper
marked up using the designated XML schema is REQUIRED for presentations that
are selected for the conference.

2.) Tutorial Instructor - We are also seeking highly qualified instructors
to lead tutorials, which will be selected based on merits of the topic and
instructor.  Tutorials will be one-half, full or two-day workshops.  Please
be sure to indicate any special requirements and length of your tutorial on
the submission form.

Please note: Marketing/promotional presentations will not be considered for
tutorials or conference presentations (except for the vendor presentations).
The talk must be submitted online in the requested abstract format and must
be original work of professional quality.

3.) Town Hall Facilitator/Panelist - This annual event will host "Town Hall
Meetings" again. Held throughout the conference, these interactive forums
are designed to allow all attendees to join open-mike forums. This is a
great way to ask questions, listen to suggestions, soak up praise, endure
abuse, hold straw polls, or go into more detail on particular issues not
possible during other presentations. These evening sessions are not limited
to conference attendees, but will be open to the public as well.

4.) Vendor/Product Presenters - Precedence will be given to those
submissions that demonstrate products being launched at XML 2002.  Products
to be announced and demonstrated first at XML 2002, brand new technologies,
new versions of existing products, standards-compliance, and/or
interoperability proof (i.e., showing more than one product from different
vendors working together) are all encouraged. Deadline for Vendor
Presentation Submissions is October 1, 2002.

5.) Late Breaking News - We will reserve several speaking spots for
"Late-Breaking News Sessions." These presentations will be designed for
developments so new that normal lead-time is not possible. These sessions
will be awarded at the discretion of the conference chair and planning
committee. Submissions for late-breaking news must sent by October 1, 2002.

6.) Exhibitor and/or Sponsor - The Annual XML event has earned a reputation
for excellence, providing vendors access to perhaps the most well informed
and well-qualified audience on XML. We invite you to join the more than 100
expected exhibiting companies at this year's event.  The conference and
exposition also has several sponsorship opportunities available. More
details on exhibiting and sponsoring may be found on the event web site
www.xmlconference.org (including contracts, floor plans and available

7.) Associated, Affiliated, and Related Meeting Organizer - IDEAlliance
encourages other organizations (especially standards activities groups)
to meet the week before or after XML 2002. We will be happy to assist you
with your planning. If interested, please contact Jane Harnad, IDEAlliance -
More details can be found on the event web site www.xmlconference.org.
