Subject: Geneva OASIS/ITU Conference Summary and Findings

Dear TC Members,

As we discussed on our call 10/31, a very successful "Workshop and 
Demonstration of Advances in ICT Standards for Public Warning" was 
held October 19-20, 2006 in Geneva at the headquarters of the 
International Telecommunications Union (ITU). It was jointly 
sponsored by the ITU and the Organization for the Advancement of 
Structured Information Standards (OASIS).

The participant list as well as the findings are attached.  The 
findings can also be found at  http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/worksem/ictspw/ ).

Eliot provides the following summary:

  - A wide range of technical solutions for public warning based on 
the OASIS Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) are already on the market 
and serving the growing movement toward standards-based, all-media, 
all-hazards public warning in societies worldwide.
  - Any official source of public warnings can now take advantage of 
the announced no-charge offer to mount copies of authoritative, 
authenticated, public alerts in CAP format. The offer was announced 
in the workshop by Neopolitan Networks, the provider of the Google 
Earth / Neopolitan CAP Alert infrastructure.
  - OASIS and ITU-T will complete the actions necessary to publish 
the CAP standard also as an ITU-T Recommendation.

All of the presentations from this ITU Workshop are online at
