Subject: WMO, ITU, and OASIS to host CAP public warning workshop in Geneva, 9-10 December 2008

OASIS is pleased to announce the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) Implementers Workshop, 9 – 10 December 2008, Geneva.
The workshop is jointly organized by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS).  The Common Alerting Protocol (CAP), an OASIS Standard adopted as ITU Recommendation X.1303, has become the foundational standard for all-media public warning. Designed as an all-hazards alert format, CAP is envisioned to be implemented worldwide for earthquakes, public health, and many other emergencies, in addition to weather events. This Workshop will provide a forum for implementers of CAP and associated international organizations to discuss coordination on key issues, together with the private sector engaged in emergency management and warning systems. All interested parties are invited to participate in this high-level, open event — please feel free to distribute this announcement to your colleagues involved in emergency management.
