don't recall if I responded to this e-mail or not, but if I did not, I hope it
is not too late!!! We discussed the opportunities at the last OASIS ebXML
Registry TC telecon, and the TC is definitely interested in participating in
OASIS Open Standard Days (Oct 4-8) and in the IDEAlliance XML 2004 (Nov
16-18). Duane Nickull will be available for the OASIS Open Standard Days -
please contact him with any additional information and details.
for forwarding the opportunities, and for your assistance!
Dear TC chairs,
Consortium is making plans now for an exciting fall/winter with some great
opportunities for OASIS InterOps. These public interoperability demonstrations
showcase multi-vendor implementations of approved OASIS work. Usually hosted
in connection with a conference or trade show, OASIS InterOps are official
Consortium activities, endorsed by one or more OASIS TCs, and mutually
supported by OASIS staff and OASIS InterOp participants.
Staff will provide
assistance in promoting and organizing these events, but the real energy
(and scripts) comes from the TC
leadership and members. TC participants demonstrate the usefulness
of a spec, and its practical availability across a range of vendor
Prior InterOps have generated tremendous
energy and strong trade press for the work product. Public InterOp
events are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate real, shippable
standards-based solutions for e-business problems.
Several conference organizers are interested in featuring OASIS
InterOps, they include:
1) Delphi (4-7 Oct, BPX 2004)
2) OASIS Open Standards Days (4-8
3) Gartner (15-17 Nov, Applications Integration and Web Services
4) IDEAlliance (XML 2004, 16-18
5) RSA (23-27 Feb)
If your TC has an
approved OASIS Committee Draft or OASIS Standard, or expects to be at that
stage prior to these events, we encourage you to consider conducting a
multi-member InterOp. However, in order to make arrangements, we need
to hear from you by June 15. If there is another conference at which you'd
like to demonstrate, please let us know. We are ready to work with you to
coordinate logistics, participation, and promotion.
conferences organizers want OASIS InterOps because they recognize the
quality of the work of OASIS TCs and the growing market power of open
standards. Your diligence and efforts to advance open standards are
