Subject: OASIS NEWS 8.13.04

13 October 2004

Welcome to OASIS News, a weekly update of announcements, accomplishments,
and activities for the international standards consortium.

Review Proposed Changes to OASIS TC Process

Members are asked to review a proposed revision of the OASIS TC Process,
which governs the creation and operation of TCs, as well as the advancement
and approval of the work they do. Because the OASIS TC Process supports the
new IPR policy, both documents must be revised, approved and made effective
simultaneously.  Comments on the draft must be received by 10 Nov.


OASIS Holds First Adoption Forum in Europe

Last week's OASIS Adoption Forum in Brussels brought together users,
vendors, government officials, and members of academia from Europe, North
America, and Asia. In a keynote address, Alejandro Moya of the European
Commission provided details on the Next Phase for e-Europe, stressing the
importance of modernization and innovation in public administration. He also
called for integration and the innovative use of ICT as the strategic
enabler. The day concluded with a spirited panel discussion with
representatives from OASIS, European Commission Program for Interchange of
Data between Administrations (IDA), CEN/ISSS, and FEDICT, all of whom gave
their own definition of ROI for adopting open standards. Members of the
OASIS e-Government TC met prior to the Forum. The Consortium plans to hold a
similar event in Fall 2005 following the OASIS Symposium in New Orleans
24-29 April 2005.


OASIS Prepares Japanese Website

In support of increasing membership in Asia, the Consortium has translated a
major portion of its public web pages into Japanese.  The translation will
help educate Japanese developers and grow adoption of OASIS Standards in
Asia. The Japanese site will be officially launched next month, and OASIS
will rely on special member sponsorship to fund its maintenance and
expansion. Members interested in sponsorship opportunities are encouraged to
contact keizo.okabe@oasis-open.org.

OASIS Emergency Management TC Elects New Chair

The OASIS Emergency Management TC has elected Elysa Jones of Warning
Systems, Inc., as its new chair. The OASIS Emergency Management TC develops
XML schema-based core and metadata standards to improve real-world emergency
management and interoperability.


OASIS Participates at Gartner Conference on 17 Nov

IBM, Oracle, SAP, Systinet, and others members of the OASIS UDDI TC will be

Services Registry Standard" in Orlando, Florida. The team will describe

enterprise needs for visibility and reuse of SOA components. The

their SOA, as well as a demonstration incorporating multiple product
offerings interoperating in the context of addressing an enterprise business
scenario. Patrick Gannon, OASIS CEO,  will participate in the Gartner panel,
