Registration opens for OASIS20 anniversary celebration

All members are strongly encouraged to attend this event, which will be held in Santa Clara, California on 3 Apr, as part of the Cloud Connect conference. The celebration will include an open mic session for vetting ideas on new standards projects, briefings on upcoming ballots and public reviews, micro-presentations on Cloud standards, Distinguished Contributor Awards, and the Members & Friends Reception, hosted by Foundational Sponsors, IBM, ISIS Papyrus, Microsoft, and Primeton. There is no cost to attend and guests are welcome, but advance registration is required.


Board approves two changes to TC Process

In response to member feedback, the Committee Notes process has been changed to allow TCs to approve Committee Notes without public review. The second change formalizes the exclusion of commercial specifics such as warranties, manufacturer lists, etc. from OASIS Standards.


BCM TC considers eDevice patient care informatics project

The Business-Centric Methodology (BCM) TC is seeking input on defining methods for medical device and cloud analytic interchange. An open discussion is underway on the OASIS LinkedIn Group.

Integrated Collaboration Object Model (ICOM) TC publishes Committee Specification

ICOM for Interoperable Collaboration Services defines a framework for integrating a broad range of domain models, enabling applications to maintain a complete thread of conversations across multiple collaboration activities. Congratulations to ICOM TC co-chairs, Eric Chan of Oracle and Ken Baclawski of Northeastern University, and to all TC members for accomplishing this milestone.
