Subject: TC Lightning Rounds at the OASIS Symposium

Dear OASIS TC Chairs:

The Symposium is 3-weeks away!  Have you designated a TC Lightning Round
speaker yet?

As you all know, the Symposium is once again featuring TC Lightning Rounds.
These Lightning Round sessions will be held both on Monday and Tuesday
(http://www.oasis-open.org/events/symposium/2007/schedule.php).  Each TC
should designate one representative to deliver a short (3-4 slides/2-3
minute) presentation. Once your TC has designated this representative,
please forward their name and contact information directly to me at
jane.harnad@oasis-open.org. If a TC representative will not be present at
the event, we ask that you please provide materials for an OASIS staff
person in advance. We're hoping to have a TC representative or OASIS staff
person speak on behalf of each TC during the event. The exact day and time
of the presentations will be forwarded (over the next couple weeks) to each
confirmed TC representative.

Special Note:  Lightning rounds slides and/or speaker information is due no
later than 6 April.  Please email these details directly to me at
