Subject: Fwd: Invitation to the December 9 Collaboration Expeditionworkshop at NSF; no fee, but RSVP required

Hi Everyone,

In case I managed to miss anyone, here is the invitation that applies 
to any from this TC who wish to attend the event where I will be 
presenting material on the collaboration that features CAP within a 
WSRP Portal for Public Health Preparedness in a Proof of Concept for 
the New York Academy of Medicine. The Paper and the Slide 
Presentation will be made publicly available following the workshop. 
Some elements of this will also likely show up in our participation 
in a Town Hall Meeting on Emerging Technologies the evening of Dec. 9 
at XML 2003 in Philiadelphia.

>Purpose: To explore the Potential and Realities of Creating Public
>Information Environments that Strengthen Citizen-Government Relationships.
>How can the openness and freedom that characterizes sound public
>information environments, become a stabilizing fulcrum as new contractual
>social interactions (activities of exchange, payment, evaluation and
>institutional advancement) are created to reflect intergovernmental
>priorities?  How will citizen-centered performance measurements emerge from
>this multi-stakeholder, multi-jurisdictional process?  How can the
>principles of user-centered design guide progress?  How can emerging
>technologies like XML/RDF standards and Human Markup Language improve
>collaboration around problem-centered, intergovernmental scenarios?  How
>can the collective understanding that emerges contribute to broad adoption
>of the Federal Enterprise Architecture?  What broad, longitudinal measures
>are researchers using today to evaluate the conditions that facilitate
>interaction and participation among citizens and their governments,
>The President's Management Agenda (PMA) requires all federal agencies to
>transform the roles and relationships among people, processes, and
>technology in order to become a citizen-centered government.  The PMA
>emphasizes bringing value and results to citizens, businesses, and
>government workers by "reducing the burden" and producing measurable
>The Federal Enterprise Architecture is emerging as an important
>collaborative organizing process to promote the delivery of effective,
>efficient services.  Two key FEA elements are defining the business of
>government services (via the Business Reference Model) and improving
>performance (via the Performance Reference Model).  How do we do that?  How
>do we learn how to do that together?  Who are our users, and what are their
>real goals and needs?  What do they want to do?  How does that translate to
>action?  And how do we know when we're succeeding?  The emerging Community
>of Practice on Usability will share insights and perspectives around these
>questions, in light of FEA goals.
