<Eliot> If you wish to do so, I would recommend having them in the same
session with Efraim Petel although with less time.

Subject: RE: Invitation to the ''Workshop and Demonstration of Advances in
ICT Standards for Public Warning' 

Dear Dee,
Thank you for the information. I would like to use the opportunity to speak
about "Multi hazards - Multi tools CAP based Alert and Warning System". A
few implementations will be used as the basis for the presentation: 1. The
California Statewide Emergency Digital Information Service, which includes
digital Emergency Alert System. 2. Industrial in-plant CAP based warning
system, as implemented in a metal processing plant in California 3. The
Contra Costa County, CA Community Warning System with local refineries and
chemical plants 4. Community Warning System around a nuclear facility.
Please let me know if the above tie in the workshop schedule as the
organizers anticipated. With best regards, Efraim Petel Hormann America,

*3. I have confirmation from Jack Hayes accepting our invitation to be a
keynote speaker.

we would like you to speak on the Tampere Convention in the morning of 20
October at the workshop on Advances in ICT standards for public warning.

7. Art Botterell:
Dee -

Might I offer a presentation on something like "Origins and  
Principles of a Common Alerting Protocol"?  Alternatively, I could  
present on how one jurisdiction (Contra Costa County in California)  
is managing a complex multi-hazard, multi-medium public warning  
system using CAP.

It's possible I might also be able to participate in the interop if  
the fees aren't too steep.

8. Hi Dee, basically, I would like to attend this workshop, but am now  
low on travel funds this year (as usual, more events
than $ ;-)  Are there any sources I can tap into for this event that  
you know of from OASIS and/or ITU?

We have done some very interesting modeling (UML) and representation  
(XML) work for both Cyclone warnings (ie Hurricanes
in your part of the world) and now Tsunami warnings (based on Pacific  
Wave 06 Exercises). We have also developed
a "simple" EDXL service for sending CAP (and the above Cyclone and  
Tsunami) messages.

10. This is helpful Carol, thanks. The name from 2003 will definitely help
in terms of my knowing which depts were involved. What I can do with the
info from you is essentially open the door for a direct invitation from
you/ITU and you can take it from there. The folks in disasters/early
warning/communicable diseases are much in demand lately for obvious reasons
and need to make an informed decision as to whether they can participate,
and whom to send. Regardless of my opinion (positive)- the more UN, less
vendor-driven, the better the chances. Talk to you soon. Joan
