The OASIS Symposium "The Meaning of Interoperability"

San Francisco, California USA

Just Announced

▬ Program agenda is now available online.

▬ Registration opens: Early-bird discount is offered until 31 March.

Program Overview

Seamless, out-of-the-box interoperability has been the holy grail motivating most of the standardization initiatives. Everyone agrees that interoperability is key, yet different definitions of the solution abound. The OASIS Symposium brings together leaders in industry and government to explore the various facets of interoperability, their dependencies, enabling technologies, supporting standards, practices and opportunities for improvement. The event is designed to provide practitioners and designers of e-business and e-government systems with a broader, more aligned understanding of interoperability issues and solutions.  

The three-day event will explore business and technical sessions, including: 

∙ The Goal of Interoperability: Socio-Economic Liberty
∙ A Tool Kit for Implementing XML Schema Naming and Design Rules
∙ Interoperability at Work: The Semantic and Contractual Perspectives
∙ Creating Interoperability for the Financial Industry
∙ Categories of Vocabulary Compatibility 
∙ Bridging the Business-to-IT Gap
∙ How Business and IT Interoperate Using SOA


The OASIS Symposium is noted for its open, candid discussions. This year will be no exception as panels of experts debate issues that include:

∙ Does SOA Help Interoperability?
∙ What Are the Main Challenges to Interoperability?
∙ What Isn't Being Done?


Program includes representatives from:

∙ Sterling Commerce
∙ Fujitsu
∙ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN
∙ LexisNexis
∙ Oracle
∙ BEA Systems
∙ Nokia
∙ Cap Gemini
∙ National Institute of Standards and Technology
∙ Sun Microsystems
∙ Hewlett-Packard


Early-bird registration discount ends 31 March. 

Hotel reservations must be made by 15 April to receive the special OASIS Symposium rate.
