Subject: [Fwd: [chairs] Interop Demo Opportunities]

  FYI.  IMO - it is probably too early for us to contemplate anything 
however if anyone feels compelled to demo, please speak up now.

Dear TC chairs,

The 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 

    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 Oct.)
    3) Gartner (15-17 Nov, Applications Integration and Web Services Summit)
    4) IDEAlliance (XML 2004, 16-18 Nov)
    5) RSA (23-27 Feb) <http://2004.rsaconference.com/us/c4p/>

    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.

    Clearly, 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 much appreciated.
