As was discussed at Thursday's EM-XML ExecutiveCommittee meeting, the EM-XML Consortium has been invited to participate in the Global Homeland Security Weapons of Mass DestructionConference being held September 24-26 in Washington D.C. The goal for attending this conference is to show validation of the CAP standard and to build awareness and momentum around the efforts of the EM-XML Consortium to develop interoperability standards for the emergency management industry. We would accomplish this through a CAP interoperability demonstration by the EM-XML Consortium members who are supporting the CAP standard.

It is recommended that we reserve a 20x20 Pavilion.The EM-XML Pavilion will include a table for the EM-XML Consortium to promote membership and understanding for the Consortium efforts, as well as individual tables or kiosks for eachparticipating company. Each company will be able to promote  their own solutions based on the CAP standard and show interoperability by passing CAP alerts between the participating companies and other devices.

The  cost of the 20x20 Pavilion is $10,000. Asdiscussed in the meeting, the easiestway to apportion this cost would bedivided equally among participatingcompanies.  This cost has generously been picked up by the Disaster Management Program thanks to Mark Zimmerman.

In addition, the EM-XML Consortium Chair has been invited to participate in a workshop during the conference session to discuss the issue of interoperability.This will be a high level discussion among CIOsfrom the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Transportation,Department of Defense, Department ofHealth and Human Services and others as appropriate.
