Subject: RE: [ebsoa] US Federal Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Community of Practice (CoP) - Come One, Come All

Thanks for posting this.  I just sent Brand two session proposals - one for discussing the available OASIS standards for SOA and their relevance to eGovernment needs, and the other discussing the work here at NIH / HSS / NCI and the lessons learned, challenges for the future.

This e-mail is to announce a recently initiated effort sponsored by the US federal government: The Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Community of Practice (CoP).

Below is a description of this initiative, along with pertinent links, details on an upcoming conference and a just-announced conference call at 11am US EST tomorrow (March 23rd) regarding a "SOA Demo" effort within the initiative. Please let me know if you have any questions.







The US federal government has recently initiated a SOA Community of Practice (CoP[1]) under the Federal CIO Council. All are invited to participate in this effort. There are no restrictions whatsoever for participation (do not have to be based the US, do not have to be a US federal government employee or contractor, etc.). Come one, come all the more the merrier.


There is also an e-mail forum archive [2] available for this CoP for those who would like to get a sense of the activity thus far (please keep in mind that we are just beginning this initiative, so the activity will grow over time).


More details below please note the deadline of March 31st for a Call for Presentations for an upcoming conference that is described further below ('IMPORTANT NOTE #1"), as well as the conference call tomorrow (March 23rd) for the SOA demo ('IMPORTANT NOTE #2").


Upcoming conference and Call For Presentations:


-          The SOA CoP is conducting a 'SOA For E-Government" conference[3] in the Washington DC area on May 23rd-24th. Ron Schmelzer of ZapThink will be giving the opening keynote on May 23rd.

-          IMPORTANT NOTE #1: A Call for Presentations has recently been announced[4], with a deadline of March 31st.


SOA Demo:


-          The CoP has also recently undertaken the creation of a SOA demo[5] whose purpose is to demonstrate the business value and technical feasibility of SOA, with various scenarios involving an example 'SOA Community" that collaborates to achieve a business goal. The demo will utilize OMG's Model Driven Architecture (MDA) to model the community and produce WSDL-SOA interfaces.

-          IMPORTANT NOTE #2: A conference call for the SOA demo has just been set for tomorrow (Thur, March 23rd) at 11am US EST[6]. All are invited and encouraged to join.
