FYI all

New Year's greetings John (and all EC TC participants) - 
Indeed, this is exactly what the TAB's symposium committee wants to
encourage. The OASIS board asked us to organize the symposium as a benefit
for members and we felt that a big benefit would be a time and locale that
worked well for TC face-to-face meetings. New Orleans is a great place to
visit, well served by the airlines, reasonably priced and balmy in April. We
also aimmed for a symposium topic that could spur fruitful conversations in
the following days of meetings. 
I think it would be great if the Legal XML TC's used this as an opportunity
to get together. To the best of my knowledge, TC's have been working
independently and have had little chance to network. If enough TC's convened
in New Orleans, perhaps the steering committee could organize a one-day
joint meeting across TC's to share info on what they are working on and
consider where some joint activity might have good results? 
Best regards, 
Chet Ensign

Subject: [legalxml-courtfiling] Possibility of changing date and location of
next face to face meeting

I would like to add the following item to the January 6 teleconference


Our next face-to-face meeting is scheduled for Chicago, March 22-24, in
conjunction with the ABA Tech Show.


OASIS has scheduled a conference in New Orleans, April 26-27.  The two days
following the conference have been set aside for TC meetings and a general
OASIS membership meeting. 


It might be advantageous for us to meet in conjunction with the OASIS
meeting, especially if our Legal XML Member Section Steering Committee were
to urge all of our sister TCs to gather there to compare notes and plans.


I reproduce below the call for presentations posted on the list a week or so
ago which contains a brief sketch of the plans for the meeting.  Chet
Ensign, who is a member of our TC, is part of the planning committee.
Perhaps he would be willing to shed more light on this issue for us.


The OASIS Symposium on Reliable Infrastructures for XML

> April 26th and 27th, 2004 in New Orleans, Louisiana


> Call for Presentations


> OASIS, the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information 

> Standards, invites you to submit a proposal for a presentation, panel 

> discussion or tutorial for the OASIS Symposium on Reliable 

> Infrastructures for XML. The goals of the symposium are to:


> * Provide a forum for OASIS Technical Committee members to exchange 

> ideas and present results of ongoing work, works-in-progress, etc.;

> * Identify areas where coordination between standards efforts is 

> needed to promote interoperability;

> * Identify unaddressed topics where standards development is needed;

> * Enable outside experts to present issues / opportunities to OASIS



> The symposium will be followed by two days available to OASIS 

> Technical Committees, Joint Committees and Member Sections for 

> face-to-face working sessions. The OASIS Annual General Meeting will 

> also be held in conjunction with the symposium.



> Overview


> Many different (and partially interchangeable) technologies are 

> proposed or available to increase the reliability of XML-based 

> messaging and networking infrastructure.  These include technologies 

> applied:


> * At the transport layer (e.g. reliable messaging specifications);

> * At the application layer (e.g. transaction protocols);

> * At intermediate levels (e.g. routing, point-to-point compared to 

> end-to-end);

> * By using Message-Oriented Middleware as a carrier for XML messages.


> We define "reliable" to mean that implementing one or more of these 

> technologies in an infrastructure removes some of the burden of 

> ensuring application integrity from software programmers and 

> architects.


> The OASIS Symposium is focused on exploring the current state of these 

> technologies and exploring areas where open standards are needed.



> Instructions


> The symposium program committee invites you to submit a proposal for a 

> presentation, panel discussion or tutorial that addresses technologies 

> and standards for reliable XML infrastructures.


> Presentations should be 30 minutes long including question and answer. 

> Sessions will consist of related presentations, ending with a 

> question-and-answer session directed to the presenters.


> Panel sessions should be 60 minutes long. Proposals for panels should 

> include the topic, 3-to-4 potential panelists (name and/or role) and 

> proposed format (e.g. Q&A, short presentations).


> Tutorials should be 1/2 day sessions.  Tutorial proposals should state 

> intended audience and learning objectives.


> Proposals should address topics in reliability as applied to XML-based 

> communications at the technology and implementation levels, ideally 

> driven by usage scenarios. Special consideration will be given to 

> proposals that:


> * Compare and contrast multiple related technologies (clear 

> comparisons of published and forthcoming XML transaction protocols) 

> with a view toward guidance for application architects;

> * Support and consider decisions about choice of appropriate 

> technologies (e.g. use of reliable messaging and simpler protocols 

> rather than transactional termination protocols);

> * Place OASIS technologies in a broader context of competing or 

> complementary specifications (e.g. relating OASIS work to the variety 

> of published reliable messaging specifications);

> * Consider alternative approaches to transaction management (e.g. 

> local rollback versus compensation-based protocols);

> * Compare reliability techniques for environmental models containing 

> benign threats versus malign threats;

> * Consider techniques for ensuring accountability of origin and 

> receipt;

> * Discuss the impact of digital signatures and encryption on reliability

> techniques.


> OASIS will publish proceedings of the symposium. Authors should 

> arrange for any necessary releases for publication prior to submission 

> of their proposal.


> To submit a proposal, please send the following information by email 

> to

> symposium@oasis-open.org:


> * The full contact details (name, affiliation, email, phone, postal

> address) of one presenter who will act as the primary contact for the 

> proposal or panel discussion;

> * The full list of authors;

> * A 1-page abstract outlining the subject and key points of your 

> proposal, panel discussion or tutorial.


> All submissions will be acknowledged.



> Important dates


> Symposium                   26th and 27th April 2004

> Location                    New Orleans

> Proposals Due               9 February 2004

> Notification to submitters  15 March 2004

> Materials Due               12 April 2004



> Program Committee


> The Program Committee is the OASIS Technical Advisory Board (TAB):


> * Karl Best, OASIS

> * Derek Coleman, HP
